THE Farm Womens Club annual weekend break enables members from all over the country to enjoy each others company as well as a fun time – and husbands are invited to come along too.

This year accommodation has been reserved at the Belsfield Hotel, Windermere (Fri, Feb 9 – Sun, Feb 11).

This comfortable country house hotel is situated in the heart of the Lake District overlooking Lake Windermere. The reception rooms have log fires look onto magnificent scenery for those who just want to relax and chat to friends.

For those members who would like to explore the locality, the World of Beatrix Potter exhibition is within walking distance as are the many shops of Bowness.

The weekend programme starts on Friday evening with a drinks reception to enable everyone to meet before dinner. On Saturday morning a visit to the Museum of Lakeland Life and Industry in Kendal has been arranged.

The afternoon is free for you to take advantage of the Belsfield Hotels heated indoor swimming pool, sauna and solarium, to explore the countryside or visit the nearby towns of Ambleside or Grasmere.
