13th June 03 - Sharrow Bay, Ullswater and Holehird Gardens

The gas man cometh...so we couldn't leave until late. So we booked lunch at the Sharrow Bay Hotel on Ullswater. Fantastic (as usual). Must be THE BEST food in the world.
Then we visited Holehird Gardens which is just outside Bowness. Wonderful. can't understand why we haven't visited before. And I bought some primulas for my bog garden. They were dividing them and sold me a whole bag full!

The fantastic view of Ullswater from your table at Sharrow Bay. Heaven!
