I am very lucky to of had the upbringing I did, and something that I will be forever grateful for – is the location I spent a large proportion of my childhood.

The Lake District.

Known across the world for it’s stunning views and spectacular scenery – I thought it was only right I shared a few of my favourite photography spots I have gathered together over the years, with you.

Ullswater

With the second biggest lake in the Lake District, Ullswater is truly stunning – especially during the Autumn and Winter months. I decided to go back there, last month after not visiting for a while and it really didn’t disappoint. The autumnal colours that transferred through the reflections were unreal, and made such a pretty picture.

If you are a keen photographer and looking for a real picturesque view – I would highly recommend taking a trip to Ullswater whether it be during the Summer months with a picnic, or visiting in the Winter – the view will not disappoint and add to your Instagram feed.

Tarn Hows

Tarn hows is located 2 miles northeast of Coniston and 1.5 miles northeast of Hawkshead. Surrounded by beautiful mountainous land and forestry, Tarn Hows features a picturesque tarn that makes a stunning picture during the four seasons of the year.

A short walk surrounding the tarn means that everyone gets the chance to see the incredible views without an issue, making it a popular walk that myself and my family do multiple times during the year with the dogs.

Honey, Spice And All Things Nice

Honey, spice and all things nice.

December. The perfect time to start baking in my eyes.

Christmas time is known for all of the glorious food, a time to indulge, so why not try making these perfect little Christmas biscuits – which in the grand scheme of things – aren’t too bad for you.

To make these biscuits please see the following recipe:

  • 125g of softened butter
  • 250g of flour
  • 1 large beaten egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 125g of sugar

First, you need to gently knead the butter and flour together, to almost form crumbs.

Once this is done, you should add the half teaspoons of spices, teaspoon of honey and sugar and give the mixture a stir so everything is binded together.

After this, add the one beaten egg and stir the mixture until it starts to forma large ball of mixture. This is when you can start rolling out the mixture, and using cutters to make your biscuits.

Find a flat surface and coat in flour, once this is done you can roll out the mixture and begin cutting your biscuits into shapes.

Place onto a baking sheet on a tray, and leave in the oven for around 10 minutes. Depending on your oven this may be a little too long so start checking them every few seconds from the 8 minute mark.

Finish by dusting each of the biscuits with a little icing sugar, and you are finished!

Obviously, you can choose to decorate these biscuits however you wish – with icing or without.
