A drive down from Edinburgh to the charming town of Keswick in the late evening of August 27th was pleasant with some scenic countryside roads.... until a little bit of distress (on my part) sets in given that we didn't have any accommodation booked for the night and there were one too many 'No Vacancies' displayed on windows of guesthouses.
But a knock on Glendale's front door with Martin's surprised expression and a warm smile greeted our apologetic faces. He graciously showed us a double room on the first floor and we loved it! The little chandelier lighting gave the room a warm and cosy glow and reflected how well-kept the room was. Needless to say, we had a very comfortable night.
Breakfast the next morning was superb with generous portions.. And a chat with Martin and Gilly about places to visit was incredibly helpful. We took a drive to places that they recommended and were absolutely thrilled with it!
We couldn't have expressed our gratitude more towards Martin and Gilly for being gracious hosts.. A definite A++ for service and we will definitely make another visit should we be there the next time... Knocking much earlier of course!
