Easter Sunday Walk in the Lakes

As hinted in a previous post, Easter Sunday we set off to the other side of the county for a walk and some food. As I said previously, this was a treat both for us and the dogs, a full day out, long walk, different part of the Lake District and some good nosh for us.

We couldn’t have asked for a better day, wall to wall sunshine and even though it was chilly, that is just the perfect combination for walking in my eyes. We decided on doing Wetherlam as we’d both never done it before having always done Coniston Old Man or the Langdale Pikes when going over this way previously.

It also seemed a good idea to stay away from those more popular fells being Easter Sunday and all. The dogs absolutely loved it and it was Cam’s first proper fell walk which showed as by the end, he was shattered. He’d probably done a little too much as between him and Mac, they will have clocked up at least twice as many miles as Mike and I!

Getting back to the car and we had a thought about trying Langdale way for dinner but we remembered about Sarah recommending a place at Far Sawrey so we decided to head over to it. My good friend and fellow Border Collie owner Sarah said the Cuckoo Brow Inn was well worth trying out and it was dog friendly. I can confirm, it was well worth going. The dogs were treated within an inch of their lives both in terms of food treats and strokes! We were too with the food. I had hot pot (how can anyone resist red cabbage) and Mike had fish and chips. We were all really impressed and especially in terms of it being so dog friendly.
