We like to thank the staff who alerted us of the flooded road near Derwent Lake where we were heading next. She came out in the heavy rain to our car just when we were about to drive off. The Cumbria flood never subsided by end of that day.

Un ostello in mezzo alle valli e a pochi passi dai laghi (il più bello è proprio di fronte). Consigliatissimo per chi sceglie le escursioni a piedi.
