The Lakes Distillery: Gin, alpacas and sticky toffee pudding

Set in the heart of the Lake District, next to the River Derwent, the Lakes Distillery is an award winner producer of gin, vodka and whisky – as well as home to some very friendly alpacas!

Last weekend we were invited along to the Distillery to try out some of the amazing food at the Bistro and meet the ‘Alpacaly Ever After’Β herd that lives on site.

The food at the Bistro is amazing. We went on a Sunday and my husband and I both had the roast beef with yorkshire pudding. It was so tasty, but the best part of the meal was the warm chocolate pudding with mango salsa and pistachio ice cream – it was delicious. (more…)

This week… 27 July – 2 August

I had a few days off work this week so we had lots of fun with a trip to the cinema, softplay, feeding the ducks and lots of lunches out.

This week… 22-28 June

Family day trip
After a mammoth 9.30 lie in on Saturday morning (both kids had been up quite a lot during the night) we decided to go out for the day. First stop was Castlerigg stone circle, where we had a picnic. Izzy enjoyed racing around the circle, playing hide and seek behind the stones and playing ‘tag’. Then we headed into Keswick to feed the ducks and go for a walk. And of course visit the chocolate shop!
