Ullwsater is famed for being the second largest lake in Cumbria and hosting some of the most breathtaking views in the country. A popular and moderate walking route is Aira Force, a fairly flat pathway through the woodland and hills which follow the streams and waterfalls of Ullswater. It’s when you see this side of the lake you get to really appreciate how one of the country’s most magnificent lakes is formed.
I say this is a moderate walk, this is if the snow doesn’t fall like it did this time last year, then as you’d presume it becomes more challenging but is worth it for the rarity of seeing Ullswater covered in snow almost knee deep. With a dusting of snow over the mountain tops, thick snow so perfectly untouched at the bottom and the cotton wool like texture of the clouds, this scenery is fit for a post card.
Whatever weather, whichever time of year you decide to visit Aira Force Ullswater you’re in for awe inspiring views which explains why people say that the English Lake District is one of the most beautiful places in the country. Just a little word of warning, if you find yourself in the same situation in having almost 4 feet of snow on your trek, please make sure you have the correct footwear and clothing- after-all no ones wants wet socks no matter how much piping hot tea and tomato soup is waiting for you at the end.

From stepping inside the Loire the feel of the interior is calming. The spacious interior, light colour palette and soft wooden details all combine together to create a relaxing holiday home to escape to. The way the interior is designed is to fuse traditional accents with contemporary to make the look classic and something that would always look the part no matter how old the holiday home. The mid century styled furniture blends perfectly in tones of stone, sand and white so that you can style and accessorise your holiday home in whichever way you like. Want something more punchy? Add a contrast of red like above. Want something monochrome but cosy? Add textured cushions for comfort and character. One initial perk about the Loire is that it already is styled inside so that it is ready to be enjoyed, putting your own stamp on it is just up to you.
The main living space has everything you’d need including a remote dining area for all the family to sit or to even entertain a diner party with friends. The L shaped sofa provides ample space to have a choice of where to sit and enjoy the view. The sofa can even be pulled out to create an extra bed for when you have those extra guests to entertain and share your holiday memories with, to ensure they have a soft and peaceful nights sleep.
In the kitchen the traditional use of the wooden cupboards against contemporary matte black countertops and cream lower cupboards brings a theme of rustic country whilst also keeping it modern, so bringing an overall appealing and beautiful design to the kitchen area. With such an open space there’s plenty of room for several people to get involved in the kitchen, so I guess no excuses. Complete with fridge/freezer and electric hob and oven with extractor fan the Loire has everything you need.
The theme throughout the home blends its way into the bedroom in some way shape or form through the wooden overhead storage as well as a contemporary headboard, stretching all the way across the room bringing a sense of earthan luxury, highlighting the grains and patterns of the wood. Nifty and mid century modern styled side tables provide stacks of room with extra storage underneath using an opened shelf design. With room for a master bedroom, twin beds and even an extra bed in the lounge, the Loire is the perfect host for your holiday home.

The Lake District is famously one of the most beautiful places to tie up your walking boots to discover the breathtaking views Cumbria can offer. Old Man Coniston, just on the east side of Windermere, nextdoor to the lake of Coniston, is the 28th highest mountain to climb in the UK and proves quite a challenging walk (especially if temperatures are above 20 degrees)! Taking around 2 and 1/2 hours to climb up it was most rewarding when reaching the top to see glimpses of Ambleside in the distance as well as lake Coniston scattered with tiny dots, which up close were huge boats.
Old Man Coniston may not be the highest point, but is most certainly a walk that’s more scenic with half way up being a small lake filled with mineral water. Although the water was freezing it was fairly clear so is a perfect time to take off your, by this point, heavy walking boots to freshen up your feet. Many other people had the same idea of sitting around for a rest and snacking on their packed lunches, you may even make 2 new friends as a male and female duck have claimed this lake their home. As it was a pretty hot when we climbed Old Man Coniston some brave walkers even took a swim.
As you continually walk up there are remains of what used to be a slate quarry that ran mid way from the top along with discarded tracks and old buildings.
With only a dusting of white clouds in the light blue sky when reaching the top it was perfect for a full view. The highest mountain in the UK, Scafell Pike, was luckily in sight with such a clear sky, so proved great timing to take a perch on the rocky top and not only catch your breath but soak up the wonderful views from Old Man Coniston.
