We had another lovely short break with Brenda and Dave at Riverside. It rained quite a bit but the autumn colours were glorious. Once again we were looked after and fed very well and we had one of our favourite rooms, No. 4; although we can understand why someone who is not 5'2" like one of us would have difficulty using the shower in no. 4, the headroom is limited - however, there is a really nice bath which suits the other 6ft member of our party better! We ate twice at Zefferelli's and took advantage of the 2 course meal + cinema ticket for £18 odd, which was good value. We are not vegetarians but the meals at Zefferelli's (and Fellini's) are excellent. Again, can't praise Riverside, Under Loughrigg highly enough; we try to get there twice a year if we can and are always assured of a good welcome.
