After the flooding in Cumbria, we now have a stunning January - blue skies, snow on the fells, crisp clean air. Its quiet here as so many visitors are staying away, but what an amazing time to visit!

The A591 is closed at Thirlmere - which means a quiet road for cycling, walking and getting around from Brackenrigg Holiday Cottages....Keswick is open and accessible, as is the gorgeous Borrowdale valley, Buttermere & Crummock water, Ullswater with Patterdale & Griesdale open, as is the route over Kirkstone to Ambleside....plenty of walking on the fells, and valleys. We even have some hardy souls swimming in Derwent water! (Not me!! Brrr!)

Spending the weekend walking - plans for High Rigg, and then the Newlands round, and a night walk with torches and starlight around Buttermere, cant wait!
