Our trip to the Lake District in pictures

We recently had a little family trip to the Lake District. We stayed in a little apartment in the centre of Windermere.

We were so lucky with the weather and had a lovely lazy time, going for walks and picnicking by the lake. The little man also had his first boat ride and first paddle.

    Looks like you had a lovely time! I love the sleepy seagull lol! I've been to the Lake District once when I was really young, but it's always been on my list of places I want to go back to!

    Fabulous photos and looks like your little one had a whale of a time!

    I love the lake district and your photos really do it justice. The photo of you picknicking at Coniston is beautiful and what a perfect place for the little one to have his first boat ride!
