Down the national park of the Lake District, North of England, there is that small hotel, the Thornleigh that allowed us to stay the Easter Weekend.
After a long ride, we could have a rest in a clean room that had a nice view on the bayside. The only thing that bothered a bit was the noisy sound of the bathroom, and the time it takes to stop after switching off the light.
Nevertheless, the service there is international and friendly. Employees are smiley, always willing to help and patient with older people. They always paid attention to allergies as well.
All the meals were amazing. For Easter, we had and egg Benedict for breakfast, which was so tasty.
During the day, we could enjoy having a walk on a sunny day at the Promenade of Grange Over Sands. The landscape is gorgeous, with a view on Blackpool.
We also went deeper in the National Park to approach the lake. On the way back, we stopped at the Yew Tree Barn, an antique shop where you can walk around just to give a look, or to sit down to have a coffee.
The lake district is definitely a nice hiking area, to enjoy the nature and to take photos. Thornleigh hotel is a nice place to stay, and don’t look at the appearance, it is not only for religious people. My friends and I are not and we did have a pleasant time there.
