The Forest Side

I don't know where to start with this blog because when we visited The Forest Side last night everything, I mean everything, was perfect.   Within 30 seconds of entering the building and being welcomed by someone in a rather nice tweed jacket, we were ushered into the bar and I was trying to persuade Mr Frivolitea  that the wallpaper would look lovely in our house. (he suitably brought me...

Homeground (again)

Yesterday we arrived in The Lakes, parked up the van and headed straight to Homeground for lunch.  We discovered it last year and fell in love with the place. Particularly because it does really decent coffee which we've never found before here. The other reason is the hash browns. They are quite simply amazing. It's just as well this place is 3 hours away from home otherwise I could end...

Lucia’s, Grasmere

if you're looking for good coffee in Grasmere then Lucia's takeaway is the place to go. We had great flat whites and I had a very tasty sausage roll too.     This place is tiny but they make their own scones and pastry goods. Definitely worth a visit.

Doi Inthanon, Ambleside

Mr Frivolitea and I love Thai food  and this place is so good we've been going every year since it opened in 2000 on our annual trip to the Lakes.  The restaurant is owned and run by husband and wife team Chris and Bursara Knight. The appeal of this place is as much about their love of what they do as it is about the food.  There is nothing more...
