29th January 2013The undiscovered lakes: Wastwater in winter

 Wastwater in winter

Perhaps Wastwater isn’t quite undiscovered, but it always amazes me how many people have visited the Lake District and not made time to admire it.


15th January 2013Hidden gem: The Santon Bridge Gift Shop and Woodlands Cafe

The Santon Bridge Gift Shop and Woodlands Cafe

Back in 1954, passers-by bought hot drinks served from a flask at the bottom of a garden in Santon Bridge – a small village just west of Wastwater and the breathtaking Wasdale Valley.
Now, on the same spot, you’ll find the much-loved Santon Bridge Gift Shop – a treasure trove of local art, local treats, walking socks to designer crafts, OS maps to candles and cakes…the list goes on. It’s funny how, as you explore the shop,you can imagine the array of items being added to the range over the years.
