Camping in the Lake District

This last week saw us embark on our annual camping trip to the Lake District.  We decided to go to the little village of Hawkshead and stayed at a campsite 10 minutes walk out of the village.  We hadn't stayed at this campsite before and so were a little apprehensive as to what it would be like but we couldn't have been more pleased.  The toilets and showers were immaculate, we had lots of space and as three families we easily found a good spot together and there was some animal entertainment for the children - a big pig "Salty Sue", cows and sheep of course.

Our first full day was a bit of a wash out in that it started raining about 7pm the evening before and rained solidly till tea time the following day but we made the best of it with wellies and waterproofs and headed off for a day in Ambleside.  Not many photos that day as it was just too wet.  However after tea we did manage a walk down to the village to the park.

The next day we had a lovely walk at Grizedale forest.  The walk was moderate but turned out to be a bit more scrambly even for our robust pram so Little L was carried in her pram like the princess she is.  But the walk was lovely and we got to see lots of the sculptures and ended up at their brilliant play park.

Some other walks were done and we managed to get some lovely sunny days as well.  The children had a great time playing together and as we packed up and set off on the final day Little L just pointed in the boot and cried "Tent".

No more camping trips for this year but we do have another holiday to look forward to in September I can't wait.
