I have wanted to visit Woolfest for sometime but we are usually in Scotland this week so I have not been able to visit, so this year since we were not in Scotland we decided to go. This is their 11th year.

From where we live it is about a 3 hour journey so we decided to come up to Penrith yesterday and stayed overnight in a loverly B&B, then off to Woolfest this morning taking only 40 mins to get there my Hubby dropped me off, he went off to Senhouse museum at Maryport.
I have been to Yarndale in Skipton the last 2 years so I knew what to expect, this was a lot bigger and there were more animals to see.

I think these Angora rabbits are ready for a trim.

These Alpaca's were really cute they were very small.

Hardwick sheep.

Valis Blacknose Sheep.

Teeswater Sheep.

Ronaldsay Ram.
Members of the The Wool Clip organise Woolfest they are a Cumbrian cooperative of fibre artists, they had an exhibition of their work,

This is our B&B tonight it has it's own Roman well in their entrance hall this excited Hubby as he is into the Romans as we are off to Roman Vindolanda Fort and Museum tomorrow.

The sat nav took use round in circles  and down many country roads, so we feel lost.

We had a great bar meal here forgot to take a picture of dessert had the ice cream rasberry surprise 4 scoops of ice cream, raspberries, meringue and loads of cream!!
