A Mother’s Dream #2. Week 21
For a Birthday treat to myself, we visited a place I have been wanting to visit for ages. Lowther Castle in Penrith.
The weather man said it was going to be sunny, so off we went… into the mist and rain! Lovely! I had a shudder go down my spine on the way there because we drove through Shap. The only time and last time I drove to Shap was to start my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Expedition!
The rain did clear up (sort of) but we thought we would start the trip with a hot chocolate in the cafe. It was Quinn’s first ever hot chocolate. She didn’t like it! But did eat all the cream and marshmallows off the top before declaring this!
There is an amazing adventure playground in the grounds of the castle, but Quinn and Ellis were just on the small side to enjoy it all. They did however love the little adventure pathway to get to the playground.
Lowther Castle have a fantastic website which you can check out here.
