The Lakes and lemon curd

Staying at Riverside Tourer Park near Hesket Newmarket, Millhouse in the North of the Lakes. Lovely little site split into two CL’s type areas. The showers / toilets are in garden sheds – literally. Much nicer than it sounds as really well done and cosy. A river running around the site and some nice walks. We managed to walk up the hills from the site – then got a little lost on our way back. Kept coming across fences that we couldn’t quite climb. In the end our various detours took us twice as long to come down as it did to go up.

Recommend the site

The next day the Hesket Newmarket Show was on so we decided on a quick visit before crossing the border. How glad were we ? it was stunning. Quote small showground but plenty of animals on show. A show jumping ring and several demonstrations. The best part was the marquees. It seemed like the whole village had entered every category  Stacks of lemon curd, more cakes than we could count, flowers, vegetables etc. etc. Then a tent full of chickens and things like “5 eggs on a plate” or  “a carrot and 2 beetroot”. Its worth being in the area to visit this show – you can spend a full day easily and eat your body weight in homemade goodies.
