I mentioned in an earlier blog that my family had booked for Kristian and I to stay at the Gilpin Lodge in the Lake District for my birthday treat. One word ... BLISS! This was our room, a junior suite called 'Troutbeck' which had the most fabulous terrace with spectacular views. From the moment we arrived, we were looked after by all of the wonderful staff and enjoyed a spectacular five course meal and a superb breakfast the following morning. It was a fabulous retreat and was much needed after Spring Fair! I've come back to work this morning feeling refreshed and relaxed.
