The Lake District is one of my favourite places. There are no end of walks and it is so popular with walkers that most restaurants, pubs and cafes are welcoming of hikers and their dogs.
Whatever the weather the Lake District has so much to offer.
We used Ambleside as our base and the photo is where we stopped off for a cup of tea whilst out on a hike in May a couple of years ago. True tranquility and not another soul around.
