March break at the caravan.

Just returned from a few days at our caravan in Cumbria. It’s the first time we’ve managed to visit this year. Happily we were able to stay toasty in the van and get out and about and explore too. Life is carrying on as normal..for now! Here are a few images from our 4 day break.

Hugo in front of the electric fire. Our van is definitely in the Granny style of interiors , but it is cosy. :),
The local pubs unique way of displaying daffodils.
Before shot of horse in the village. So pretty!
And an After photo. Tee-hee. 😜

NT Acorn Bank.

We used our NT membership and explored the grounds of Acorn Bank in Temple Sowerby.
Though I didn’t go paddling in the pond. Hugo did.
Daffodils everywhere.
And an ever so beautiful flowering Quince…

Appleby & Rutter Falls. ( 8 mile muddy walk).

The River Eden flowing through Appleby.
Man in a bath. 😁
Rutter Falls and Hoff Beck.
Cherry blossom at Rutter Falls.
Hugo outside Rachel’s Wood.

Northern Viaducts Round ~ Kirkby Stephen. ( 4 mile, not as Muddy walk).

Frank’s Bridge over the Eden, Kirkby Stephen.
Crossing Merrigill Viaduct.
Podgill Viaduct.
Scarlet Elf Caps. Also saw a wispy red squirrel gathering moss on this walk. ❤️
One of several poetry stones on the route.

Definitely loving all the places we’ve discovered in the beautiful Eden Valley so far.

Home via Ambleside. We were sad to head home today, took a little detour to Ambleside , so Hugo could have a swim in Windermere.

The Bridge House.
Seriously satisfying soup , served with cheese! Brill idea. Rattle Ghyll Cafe.

Hungry swans.

Hope everyone is well. Stay safe. ❤️

  1. On catch up with blogreading. What a lovely short break & to see places we’ve been through your photos is great. Thank you. Take care, stay safe & hugs.

  2. Some really lovely photos, especially love the viaduct and scarlett elf caps. My parents have friends in Appleby, but I haven’t been there since I was a child, lovely place. Hope you’re safe and well. X

  3. Looks like you made the most of your time at the caravan. I love to visit all the places you have been too. Smardale Viaduct walk is beautiful too although I think the viaduct is closed at the moment, it is further along the same disused line.
