Holker Hall Winter Fair

We went to the Holker Hall winter fair today. It is always a lovely day out. Real fires, lots of coffees cakes and hot chocolates. A food fair, lots of crafts, alpacas, a barbecue tent with lakeland local burgers and sausages. I always spend a fortune and today was no exception. My Christmas shopping has started folks.
We all went. Teen and his exchange partner, other half and mum. It was lovely. What a pity about the appalling freezing cold persistent rain. When will it ever end?
When we got back it was so cold in the house we now have a blazing real fire. It's lovely. Watching the rugby and drinking tea. A nice relaxing Saturday afternoon.

I'm gettin' hungry just reading the menu! That sounds like fun, even if it was cold. I think I'd like rugby much better than football.

Not long till the 11th now. Stay away from the BBQ for awhile!! I know you'll be glad to be well past the whole thing.

Holker Hall is near Grange over Sands isn't it? My parents used to have a caravan there. Bet it was lovely!

Oh I was at Holker Hall this summer! My parents live in Cumbria and I was there on vacation in June and we hit several stately homes. Cumbria is such a beautiful part of the country.
