Row row row your boat

When we were out with Chris the previous weekend at Allan Bank, she said you must get a rowing boat out on Grasmere. So we did.   If you head out of the village on the Red Bank road you will come across the Faeryland.
A little car park and a very lovely secluded  bay and even an odd Faeryland fairy.  

The one thing that struck me as soon as you enter the car park was the negativity. Big signs stating the following

Do not park here

Do not take pictures unless you’ve purchased something.

Then it continued in the boat!

But despite this, it was lovely seeing the hills from the water. At just one mile long and half a mile wide, Grasmere is one of the smaller lakes of the Lake District.  The lake is heavily associated with the poet William Wordsworth and lies just south of the village of Grasmere.

The boat is £15 per hour and you leave a £20 deposit. So good value overall. Even better when you get rowed around the lake.
