I’m pleased to announce that 20 of my Lake District Framed prints are now on display in Wilf’s Cafe next to William Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage in Grasmere. A brand new range of square Lake District Landscapes are on display along with some old favourites. If you are heading to the Lakes in 2013 please drop in. There is ample parking on site and being right next door to Dove Cottage there’s plenty to do. Great food is also available from the friendly staff in Wilf’s.

As regular followers of my website will have guessed by now Buttermere is one of, if not my favourite location in the lake District. It’s natural beauty is by far in excess of everything else the Lakes has to offer in my view. I’m not sure why when I think about this remotely, but every time I visit it hits you right away, I’ve concluded it’s the scale, for such a small area along the Lake you feel penned in by the fells surrounding Buttermere.
Coniston Old Man is probably one of the most famous Lake District fells. It dominates the South Lakes and the picturesque village of Coniston.
Visible from all around the South Lakes Coniston Old Man and it’s close neighbours provide a decent collection of interesting fells that make Coniston such a good base for walkers.
Loughrigg Fell is situated in the center of the Lake District on the southern shore of Grasmere with Loughrigg Tarn to the East and Rydal Water to the West. Loughrigg Fell is a relatively low lying fell but given it stands alone you get a decent view in all directions from the Summit.
The Western Lake District is one of the most naturally beautiful parts of the Lakes in my view. Its quieter and less touristy than Keswick, Ambleside and Grasmere. Buttermere and Wasdale are the main villages in these areas and great bases for several magnificent walks in this area.
Blencathra is a fine fell in the North of the Lake District, a large rolling mass that looks smooth and friendly from most angles. Sharp Edge is a relatively short ridge that joins the eastern side the Blencathra’s summit with Scales Tarn below. You get a brief glimpse of sharp edge from the A66 at the foot of Blencathra.
