The Lake District is always the ideal place for a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life, and I was fortunate enough to be invited for a relaxing break at Rothay Manor late last year*.
Rothay Manor is a stunning Grade II listed country house boutique hotel, a stone’s throw from Lake Windermere. The hotel is ideally situated for exploring all of the wonders of The Lake District, which is an area I have visited many times over the years and I never tire of the awe inspiring rugged beauty of the landscapes and lakes it is renowned for.
This was the view from the window seat in the living room - what a beautiful vista and I found looking out on this to be very inspiring.
The snacks were elegantly presented and they gave us even more of an appetite for what was to follow.
After our savoury courses, an equally irresistible dessert was presented to us and it seemed almost a pity to eat it since it looked so pretty, however I soon managed to devour it! It is easy to see why Daniel triumphed on Great British Menu and I wish him every success going forward. It was a pleasure to experience his cooking.
