Down by Pooley Bridge
After a lengthy drive due to various traffic jams because of all the people like us wanting to go away for the Easter long weekend, we arrived a quaint little B&B which we'd booked over the internet.  The scenery of the farms with grazing sheep and new born lambs, the flowing stream into Ullswater Lake, the fells and hills did a fantastic job of wiping away any thoughts of work and the hussle and bussle of the city.

After putting our luggage in the room, we were offered tea and scones as a refreshment after the long drive.  The owners were very friendly and offered advice on some of the local attractions and explained some of the nearby hikes.  They had lots of brochures which showed the hiking routes of various difficutly.  We decided to leave the sites and hikes for the next few days and just to have a walk around the town.

Being such a small town, it didn't take long to see it all.  We walked down to the lake edge to see a great view of all the hills that surround the lake.  On the way back into the town center we were really surprised at the level noise the sheep were making.  So much so that we just stood there looking across the fields and watching them walking, eating and yelling at each other.  Especially liked all the lambs running around and playing.
