Murphy, a pet dog missing for five days on the Lakeland fells, has been found safe and well after its owner hired a private helicopter and a specially trained search dog him.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team searched over five days to try and find Murphy and was eventually found by the helecopter at Fall Crag, below Angle Tarn, near Hartsop.

Owner Lewis Blythe, of Bury St Edmunds had been holidaying in Windermere when Murphy went missing and decided to hire a helicopter at a reported cost of £1,000.

With the first of the Spring Gardening Holidays just over 2 weeks away (May 1st - 6th 2011), we have decided to offer the last few rooms with a 10% discount off the normal rate.

Everywhere is looking lovely - so fresh and green this time of year, with the early rhododendrons and camellias coming into flower already, so for anyone with a love of gardens - this holiday is ideal.

Offering a mixture of talks and trips out to a variety of places including some gardens not normally open to the public, its a great opportunity learn more about the gardens in the local area.

Its been a beautiful sunny weekend, and spring is certainly in the air, with summer not far behind we hope.
The leaves are appearing on the trees and there are plenty of lambs in the fields.
The good weather and holidays has brought lots of people to the area and the hotel is pretty full, so lovely to see so many familiar faces and plenty of new guests as well, hopefully to become familiar faces in the future.
We still have some availability for the coming weeks so please give us a call if you fancy a break.
