In between the snow we’ve had in the last week we’ve had a chance to do some redecoration in our 2 holiday cottages in Glenridding, 1 & 2 Helvellyn Cottage. Here are some photos of the cottages, plus some of the cottages in the snow…

We’ve the lounge of 2 Helvellyn Cottage a mini-makeover, painting the fireplace and with a new brighter floor rug.
