What a lovely holiday. We did nothing apart from eat and sleep and read and walk and watch DVDs. It was wonderful! Our cottage was in the middle of Gunnerside and we could just walk straight out onto the dales and up into gills and across moor. To be honest, we didn't walk as much as I had hoped - we just kinda collapsed, but it was a good collapse. We watched the whole of the first series of Battlestar Galactipus and I read loads (even more after we found a second hand book sale). When we did walk, it was brilliant and wuthering, and we found all sorts of Tolkein-esque industrial ruins miles up in the hills. It was all rather fine!
