    Crisp spring days

    There is something sort of special about the quiet and crispness of a spring frost. The world is slowly coming to life again, yet winter tries to cling onto the last of its grasp on nature.

    This week we have noticed beautiful crocuses poking their heads through the ground and little lambs snuggled up next to their mums in the bottom of hedges. We're looking to Easter with our special March/April offer where you can get a delicious 3-course dinner when you book 2 nights or more - and from just £125.00 per person.

    In other news we discovered this very talented photographer, Chris Hancock, over on Instagram (how very 21st century of us!) who takes beautiful Lakeland images...so we thought we'd share.

    You can find more of his pictures here
