Take A Gentle Stroll Into Autumn & Visit Keswick The Lake District

The summer holidays have drawn to a close and the kids are all headed back to school but the good news is that the Autumn months are perfect for a trip to Keswick.

Although it is a little cooler in the mornings and evenings, it is not as busy and we often get lovely weather during September and October so it's just perfect walking, shopping or just about anything else.
