Surprise View

Less than a ten minute drive from the Lodore Falls Hotel and Spa is one of the Lake District’s most stunning view points. Take in panoramic views of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite Lake and snap the ultimate candid.

Ashness Bridge

We had seen several photos and posts about Ashness and we just had to visit this beautiful stone built bridge. The views overlooking Borrowdale are incredible, we visited when the sun was low and the Autumn trees and the old stones glowed golden. ☀️🍂 – – #thelakes #lakedistrict #ashnessbridge #naturephotography #nikon #theplacetobe #nikonphotography #travelcouple #landscapephotography #wanderlusting #exploretgeglobe #worldtravel #aroundtheworld #travelingtheworld #neverstopexploring #wanderluster #worldtraveler #backpacking #traveldiary #travelblog #travelphoto #globetrotting #traveladdict #travelphotography #traveller #mytravelgram #lambontherhodes #starttheadventure #girlsthatwander
