We decided at short notice to go to the Lakes for the weekend and this gave me the opportunity to do an epic Life in Northern Towns splurge – seven towns in total. So there are plenty of entries to read in the coming weeks:
As we decided at last minute to go up to the Lakes we struggled to find a hotel that was available for one night, reasonably priced and didn’t look like a dive in a lively location – we got three out of four. So courtesy of Laterooms, we settled on Grange-Over-Sands in the southernmost part of the Lake District overlooking Morecambe Bay.
Anyway the drive up to the Lakes was okay - we hit a traffic jam where the M61 meets the M6, as it seems other people had the same idea to take a trip to the Lakes. We got to Kendal in an hour and fifteen minutes from a sunny, but riot torn Salford.
