Finally here is part two of my Woolfest adventure.
The first couple of pictures are of me in our hotel enjoying a well deserved drink and meal after our long drive (4 1/2 hours) to Cockermouth.
After Woolfest we decided to head down the road to “The Woolclip” Shop in Caldbeck to have a look what they had. Woolclip is actually the shop which helped bring Woolfest to us.
The little village was adorable and I managed to buy some lovely “Russian Dolls” which I was really impressed with the handpainting on them. I will post pics of them in Part Three.
Whilst driving to and from “The Woolclip” we had to go over “The Common”, it was brilliant seeing all the lovely sheep roaming around free and I was so tempted to stop and put one of the little lambs in the boot to bring home and adopt (hubby wasn’t so tempted lol)
On Sunday we decided to head to the Motor Museum and the Country Gardens at Holker Hall in Cartmel and as you can tell the weather was lovely and the gardens were spectacular. You could quite easily be envious of Lord and Lady Cavendish living in the exquisite splendour.
On the way home we decided to stop off at Windermere and had some lovely chips from a chip shop on the main street and even managed to pick up a small birthday gift for my father’s birthday.
By the time we got home we were both worn out and our dogs were really pleased to see us.
To sum up the weekend, we had loads of fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it and will most definitely be going back next year!!!
