Good Morning!

A glorious 5:30am walk this morning saw mist lying in the low ground, and the distant hills of Binsey, Skiddaw and Blencathra apparently ‘floating’. Just one of the moments to enjoy during a stay at Leesrigg Cottage.

Fabulous Sunset!

Sunday evening saw this spectacular sunset, viewed here from Leesrigg Cottage. It marked the end of a day which started with a light ground frost, and was ideal for a walk with our four-legged friend.

What a day!

We had some fantastic late September weather here at Leesrigg Cottage yesterday. The garden is still looking good, and the lakes are a little quieter for doing a bit of exploring. We have availability from late October through to the Christmas break. There’s also still a chance to enjoy the Autumn colours. Our best rates are always available by contacting us
