Penrith – 15 February

A great weekend at Steve & Wynn’s – great food, great hospitality and best of all, great company. My outdoor activities were somewhat restricted by having had a tooth extracted the previous day which meant no strenuous exercise for a day or two. So while Pauline headed for the hills with one of the groups of runners I headed off to Penrith for a mooch around.

There is much to enjoy in Penrith which is saved from the excesses of Cumbrian tourism by being on the east side of the M6 and beyond the boundary of the National Park. Book shops abound as do other independent shops including a drapers established in 1742 and specialising in Irish Household and Fancy Linen.
