Crag Lea Cottage, Borrowdale

Back in June, when I was still suffering from the dreaded morning sickness, we hired a little cottage called Crag Lea in Borrowdale, near Keswick, in the Lake District. I think the fresh air and getting away from home really helped me feel a bit better although I did have a few days of feeling rough.

The cottage itself was lovely and was perfect for a holiday with our little dog Bella, she loved it there. Borrowdale itself is a small village with a river which Bella loved playing in.

I was still a bit rough while we were there but we managed to go sailing a few times and even do some walking, although I have to admit I straggled behind a bit and normally had to stop about half way up the hills while Mr M and Bella continued to the top!

The cottage itself was lovely and could have slept up to 6 people in the 3 bedrooms although I think it would have been a little crowded with 6 adults. The wood burner in the living room was definitely the highlight though and we made sure we made the most of it while we were there, especially on the cold and wet days.

All in all we loved our time at the cottage, it was the perfect base to explore the Lakes and we would highly recommend it.
