Taking place this weekend is the Gosforth Show, held at the fairground just outside the village where we have several lovely self catering cottages. This is a traditional agricultural show with displays and judging of sheep, cattle and horses. Also on show will be local handicrafts and horticulture, vintage machinery and trade stands. My particular favourites are the competitive sheep shearing and the terrier racing!
Also on this weekend is the Art & Craft Fair at Brockhole, near Windermere. The visitor centre is huge with lots to see inside and out and there is free entry. Over the weekend there will be demonstrations, hands on experience and items for sale. You are bound to come away with something truly unique.
Brockhole is set in stunning grounds so there is plenty to look at if you are not an arty sort. The gardens stretch to the shores of Windermere and indoors you will find ever-changing displays and information about the area.
Check our late availability for self catering cottages available this weekend for short breaks and week-long stays.
