"We hiked, relaxed in the sunshine, rowed on a lake and enjoyed the peace..."

K Keith

Quality of food was great as one would expect from a farming district with farmers markets. We went for walks, rowed a boat across Talk in Tarn, then walked around the small lake. The weather was gorgeous over Easter. And we loved it. The lakes were a short drive away. We didn't get to Scotland just a short drive away, but we will next time. De-stressing tips: We hiked, relaxed in the sunshine, rowed on a lake and enjoyed the peace and great food. Romantic experience: Relaxing together on a quiet weekend away in beautiful [c]ountryside. Kid's experience: Learning to handle a rowboat. I liked: Getting away from London into a clean, peaceful environment.   Read more
