We walked from Grasmere past the lake over the hill back through the wood and then called at faeryland for a magical drink - real tea and authentic spiced latte - awesome doesn’t even cover the experience - we will be back!

Stumbled upon this gorgeous spot today whilst out walking. What a perfect spot on a cold but sunny day to sit and have a pot of tea and a clotted cream scone. Scone was to die for and the views were heavenly.
