The Swan Hotel Pool The Swan Hotel Spa The Swan at night
We are about to go away for a few days break to the Lake District, Cumbria, so no blogging for me for a few days.We will be staying at The Swan Hotel at Newby Bridge which is at the south end of Lake Windemere. www.swanhotel.com We last stayed there about five years ago and enjoyed the walks and the beautiful scenery. We also spent a Christmas at the The Lakeside Hotel which is in the same area and from where the steamers and boats sail. The trip up to Grassmere is very enjoyable and worth taking. The poet William Wordsworth (1770 -1850) is burried in the local churchyard in Grassmere. His "Daffodils" poem has to be one of my all time favourites.
