The drive from North East London is roughly 300 miles and it took about 6hours with a couple of power nap breaks and lunch.
The green points are our must-see and the others are a result of our curiosity, we either drove past them or saw a form of advertisement locally.
We decided to stay in a gorgeous flat in the centre of Windermere village, very close to all amenities. The reason behind this choice is we want to be able to just walk to the shop to buy last-minute food and so that we don’t have to use the car for shopping or dining out as everything we’d want will be within walking distance.
We roughly covered the area by driving alone which in itself is interesting with an odd stop here and there. Further posts will go into detail for each trip otherwise it will be a very long post.
Overall, it was a great holiday. Hectic but fun.
