Brrrrr… cosy log fire anyone?

Filed under Uncategorized

We were promised heavy snow this afternoon but it’s failed to materialise.  We still have a light covering but most roads are clear and running as normal.  I was walking through town at around lunchtime and this sign caught my eye.  It reads: “This way to a cosy log fire and good food. Or pop in for a hot drink and see a unique oak beamed Olde Worlde café/bistro.”  Kendal has some great little cafés and this one, named The Joshua Tree and situated on Stramongate just a stone’s throw from our apartment, is one of them.

It’s business as usual in Kendal

We had snow here in Kendal at the weekend, as did much of the country, and have had intermittent spells since, but it’s business as usual in town with most roads operating as normal (if a little more slowly!). Cumbria usually gets its fair share of snow when it falls in Britain but it sounds like other parts of the country are facing more of a struggle. Of course, the felltops have had plenty – we drove to Windermere this morning and the hills look as fantastic as you might expect.  Winter is a great time to visit the Lakes and, by being a town centre location, you still usually have access on foot to all the town’s amenities should there be a heavy snowfall.

We still have some short breaks remaining for this winter, starting from just £270 (Friday-Monday or Monday-Friday), as well as Christmas week (20th-27th December 2010) should you be tempted by a quick getaway.

Apologies for the lack of quality in the photo!  It is of Kendal Castle in the snow and was quickly shot from the apartment balcony on Monday with just a camera phone whilst we were getting the place ready for the next guests.
