An Autumn break.
A lovely week end at the Rothay Manor with a very comfortable room overlooking the garden. We had dinner on the Friday evening and were surprised to find it was a Chef's tasting menu. I must confess I would have preferred to have chosen a more traditional meal, but it was interesting, although rather long drawn out, with rather bitty courses. The hearty breakfasts were very enjoyable. IIt is very conveniently placed for both Ambleside and the lake, just a pleasant stroll, especially the walk by the river. Fortunately the weather was high cloud and mild, it didn't rain and the scenery was magnificent
