I recently went to the lake district to celebrate my one year wedding anniversary. I absolutely love it here, especially this time of year when it feels all wintry and cosy and you can wrap up in layers and walk around the quaint little villages. We stayed at the Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa in Windermere which is a traditional, cosy retreat, set on the beautiful lake of Windermere perfect for country adventures and romantic weekend getaways. Not long after arriving at the hotel we decided to have a walk around Windermere, which is full of cute little fashion boutiques and cafes. If you like hot chocolate then I would definitely recommend trying out Choccobar where they serve hot chocolate made with real chocolate, heavenly!
