Thank you for showing us your lovely weekend away Lucy. You did choose a beautiful place to visit. The breakfast sounds fab, I do enjoy a good breakfast!
I noticed a little while back that National Rail have a years free membership to YHA when a card is bought on line. We thought this would be the ideal time for our family to try out staying with them and even though our rail card doesn't expire for another month I may renew early so we don't miss out on the offer. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Lucy, Thanks for sharing your weekend - I'm so glad you had a good time. It was so pleasant to read. I've often thought about staying in a youth hostel, the one you stayed in looked lovely. I did stay in one once back in the 70's on a school trip. They seem to have vastly improved.

Arnside looks lovely and it's not too far from me, I think it'll have to go on my list of places to visit.
Glad you had a good time, even a short break changes the pattern of life and recharges the batteries.


Hi Lucy, what a great weekend you had and again what fantastic photo's. I must just ask if you could tell me what camera do you use because your photo's are so clear and bright.


Hi Lucy,
What a great weekend you had. Isn't it nice that you can have such a good time in a relatively short time and nearby area: it just feels like a real holiday !! When we were in your country we never stayed in a youth hostel.We sure have to try it one day.


Well, todays post was definitely worth the wait! I stayed at a Youth Hostel Association building when I was with the Girl Guides. It wasn't a patch on the place you stayed at. All we were offered was Kendal Mint Cake! You certainly pick the best places to go. I think you should write a UK travel guide!


ACK! I think I stayed at that youth hostel almost exactly 20 years ago when I was a freewheeling backpacker!! I certainly don't remember any three-course meals, though (other than the ones I would have made for myself in the communal kitchen)!

Thanks for giving me chills! I shall take it as a sign that I must immediately haul my family across the Pond (if only...).
