Cumbria and Edinburgh Yarn Festival Photos

I am posting photos of the Curioushandmade Country House Retreat and Edinburgh Yarn Festival here separately so the show entry isn't too loaded for those who have slower downloads.

Along the way to the pub



On the grounds of Melmerby were some very large oak trees and stands of snowdrops.

Thank you for posting these! I dream of going to Scotland and to get to do so with a knitting adventure would be so amazing! It truly looks as beautiful and wonderful as I can imagine!

The executive chef here was a genuinely nice person and never made us feel like we were just "business" for him. He was extremely competent and organized. Because of the natural beauty of the lofty spaces, we were able to get away with very minimal decorations.
