I found out yesterday that some of my emails were going astray and today that my telephone had no dial tone. This has left us in a pickle as we have not been able to answer emails from as far back as a month ago because they were not coming into my Inbox and so we were unable to answer queries regarding accommodation this weekend. I found some old emails yesterday when I did finally manage to access them through webmail and felt most frustrated indeed. As for the telephone, I found out today that all it had was a crackle instead of a dial tone, so we were not able to take phone enquiries or make phone calls until BT fixed it.
Well, tomorrow is the beginning of the May Public Holiday long weekend, and we are now left with some late availability. As a result, public holiday B&B rates have been discounted down to near, if not, midwinter midweek rates for the weekend. We still have rooms for double, single, twin and triple occupancy, and all with lovely views of either Lake Windermere or the woodlands. So, if you or someone you know fancies a weekend in the Lakes, please do get in touch.
Meanwhile, we are still enjoying beautiful weather in our part of the English Lake District. Not a drop of rain nor a cloud in the sky threatened the clear blue skies earlier today. It is now evening, and there is a flush of red in the sky, showcasing a gorgeous sunset.
I am feeling rather distracted as I write as my eyes keep wandering over to the moving picture that is the stupendous view of a setting sun over deep blue Windermere waters and green and purple mountains in the background. Birds are singing their evensong, but otherwise, all is quiet. It is so, so peaceful. And certainly conducive to just the right mood to nod off even though it is barely 9 pm!
Anyhow, if you are looking for a romantic break in the Lakes, an active break exploring Lakeland landscapes, or a peaceful retreat from the hubbub of a busy life, this long May weekend might just be the ticket to take advantage of the extra day off afforded to most people and a chance to take a restful breakaway in the beautiful Lake District.
