Retreat to Yorkshire

I spent this last weekend at  Kettlewell, in Yorkshire, with a group of 11 friends who share my interests in knitting, crochet and sewing. We did do some of these things but also spent a lot of time chatting, eating excellent food (I have to have the recipe for lemon pickle and spicy garlic pickle) and even doing some walking.
We stayed in a huge house which can sleep up to 23 people and which had two cookers, two fridges and two dishwashers (we sure did need those dishwashers). The dining room was massive and we were all able to sit and eat around the enormous table.

On Saturday morning I persuaded several people to come walking with me and we walked along the river which runs through Kettlewell and across to Starbotton then back along the ridge on the other side.

On Sunday morning I went for a wander around the village of Kettlewell, which has a river running through it, and its tiny stone church and churchyard.
