Lisa's Top Baking Tips

As you may or may not know, Lisa here at the Hideaway is a huge fan of baking and treats all of our guests to delicious afternoon tea every day of their stay.

Her cakes are the best around, baked with love, care and attention and after much cajoling we’ve managed to persuade her to share her best baking secrets with our blog readers- just in time for the GBBO final this evening!

So without further ado, here are Lisa’s top five baking tips:

The Royalty Cinema, A Gem in The Heart of Bowness-on-Windermere

The Royalty Cinema, A Gem in The Heart of Bowness-on-Windermere

On a dark, rainy evening in Windermere there are some lovely things to do. One of them, just down the road in Bowness, is to enjoy an evening at the beautiful and independent Royalty Cinema.

Built in 1926 and opened as the public hall it was originally designed to provide a cinema, theatre and a place to dance for the people of Windermere. It was renamed ‘The Royalty’ in 1930 and has remained as such ever since. In 1955, the building was converted specifically into a cinema, the dressing rooms as they were became the foyer and toilets, the 65 seat circle lounge followed later.

Things To Do On The Infamous Water Of Lake Windermere

Windermere is England’s largest lake and to come here and not feel the lake lapping against your feet or feel the breeze in your hair could easily be perceived as a travesty! It is an incredibly beautiful sight from the shoreline, but from a position on (or in) the lake itself it is even more breathtaking. Views of the mountains, the islands and the bays are spectacular whether you are cruising, swimming or waterskiing.

Windermere’s Literary History

Windermere’s Literary History

The Lake District is an especially inspiring place, a bracing walk around Lake Windermere or across the fells at any time of year can evoke a sense of wonder in even the hardest heart. The list of famous writers who have made the Lakes their home is compelling and evidence of the stimulating environment for those interested in the arts.  The area has become a place of pilgrimage for lovers of literature to experience the same setting as some of Great Britain’s finest and most highly regarded authors.
