In May, we went for a long weekend to stay in a Hobbit Hole (yep, it’s a real thing).
We found it while searching for a glamping holiday. The Hobbit Holes are on a campsite called the Quiet Site, above Ullswater in the Lake District. They are essentially a basic room with heating and lighting and a toilet. It was lovely and cosy.
The Quiet Site was a fantastic place to stay.
On our first day, we boarded an Ullswater Steamer, which took us to the other side of the lake…
… where we went on a short walk in the beautiful surroundings of Hallin Fell.
Ben tested his rock climbing skills…
… and both kids were brave enough to dip their feet in the cold lake water.
We ended the day with a good appetite. Good job we had cooking facilities back at the Hobbit Hole!
Over the next two days, we got lucky with ever better weather, and spent our time taking walks in beautiful countryside and pottering by streams and the lake-side.
We ended the holiday planning our next one!
