Here the piccures from Mum and TNP’s trip for his birthday. They went to a very nice little luxury hotel called the Holbeck Ghyll and they didn’t even take me. Also I heard that the people in the next door room tooked their dog. Mum says I wouldn’t have liked to have gone and been left in the room while they ate dinner, but I think I should have beed the judge of that!
It beed a place just up a hill from lake Windermere, one of our biggest lakes here in the lake district. I has never beed to this one cos Mum says it be too touristy and crowded. Mum said words like pretty and traditional and stuff like that. Pawsonally I think the furnishings looked very comfy for a little dog to rest his head… hm.
They went mostly cos TNP really likes his food. I think he learned that from me. He likes to experience ‘fine dining’ and so he has been to a couple of restaurants which has won a thing called a michelin star, which means they cook very well but also you get good service and a good ‘ambience’ which different to an ambulance and so not something to worry about. Mum says I would not appreciate the care and time the chefs take to make the food, and she probably right. I doesn’t even eat mine cooked most of the time.
Me not being able to go aside I think Mum and TNP had a really nice time. TNP’s mouth waters whenever he thinks of the food and Mum had a ‘to die for’ (literally if we furs ate it hehe) nice chocolate dessert. Mum especially likes the waiter people who is all very nice to you and do things like help you choose your wine and put your napkin in your lap and tell you all about the food on your plate. She say it pretty much like stepping back in time and experiencing what being in the upper class be like when people had servants to tend to their every whim. She should try being a dog for a day huh!
Ok, now for piccures. First, the place. They not really in any order and I think you will be able to tells the ones that TNP tooked to the ones that Mum did. BOL!
Can you believe that sneaky cat! Mum and TNP went after work so had to get in their room and get ready for dinner quick. You is not allowed to wear jeans or t-shirts or trainers, so I suprised they let them in. hehe! You sit in one lounge to order your food and have canape’s and a drink, then you go through for dinner and then you go to a different lounge for coffee or tea and some petit fours. Mum just loves looking at all the little details that they took such care over ‘back then’ like the door handle bits and windows… she also tooked a piccure of in one of the lounges there be drawings of dogs, and they had little plaques saying they was by the ‘proprieter’ when he be 16. Guess that why it allows dogs huh?
Here some pics of the food, not good piccures, cos Mum just tooked a little camera.
TNP had lots of kinds of mushrooms on his beef dinner and he picked out two baby ones for Mum cos he knows she likes mini things, like the little mini doggies she makes.
The next day they went round Windermere and met some swans! They also went in a little sweet shop and Mum bought some fudge. I got a little of that.
The drive home! Back to me! They both had a very good time!
