Some incredible weather lately!

It is probably being reported in the world news that parts of the UK are being thrashed by rain, wind, and yet more rain, with the effect that many have found themselves being evacuated from their homes. In two recent reports, a couple of householders found themselves staring down into huge sinkholes appearing in their gardens. Others have found themselves knee-deep in water where before they could walk on dry land.

We ought to be thankful that we have not suffered severely in the Lake District. True, we have had a fair amount of wind and rain, leading to falling trees and potholes. Nonetheless, there has not been the serious flooding that people have experienced in the South and South West of the country. In fact, believe it or not, the recent blustery weather in the Lake District has actually been interspersed generously with many hours of bright sunshine.

Of course, most everyone tends to think of the Lake District as being of a watery nature. Nonetheless, the weather has been good enough for the landscapers we engaged to make a start – and, indeed, more than a start – on the garden work to the front of our home, Blenheim Lodge. We can now see a fully built stone wall that has been covered with tarpaulin while waiting for the cement to dry. Hurray!

So, yes, after a good long while of getting quotes for the front garden that Hubby dug up, we are now finally getting underway with fixing it. Thankfully the garden or lack of it does not get in the way of guests arriving to stay at our guest house. Sometime soon, however, I think we will shut for four days to enable the redesign of our front entrance.

Meanwhile, we are open as usual for bed and breakfast breaks at Blenheim Lodge. We have last minute availability this half-term break and into the weekends, and hope that you can join us for a nice escape from the daily grind! Meantime, here is a photo of the beautiful Lake District National Park sitting pretty for you to enjoy.
