It looks set to be another gorgeous weekend here in the Lake District, with temperatures reaching the mid 20’s and not a cloud in the sky!
This weekend Sally’s Cottages are on a mini road trip from Keswick to Muncaster, taking in the epic passes of Wrynose and Hardknott and the beautiful Eskdale valley. We are getting up early to make the most of our day, which will culminate by attending the outdoor showing of Dracula hosted by a Penrith based charity.
Eden Arts tour the region with their big screen, hosting outdoor film nights in fabulous locations which have so far included Whinlatter Forest, Sleddale Hall and Lowther Castle.
As you might imagine, this is a very social affair requiring you to bring camping chairs, head torches, drinks and nibbles, as well as a sense of humour and adventure! Oh and not forgetting warm clothes – the sun may have been out for the weekend but I think it will be quite chilly in deepest darkest Muncaster once the sun has gone down.
The castle and its gardens are beautiful to walk round during the day but I suspect that when the sun goes down, things will become rather creepy – secluded shadowy undergrowth and imposing gothic turrets all lending a spooky air to proceedings.
We have lots of fantastic cottages in the lake district that are handily situated for visiting Muncaster Castle. To view details of cottages in the Lake District close to Picnic Cinema events please click here.
