Brathay Residential

Class: Buzzard Year: 2017 - 2018

Fantastic first day on the Brathay Residential in the Lake District, sat in acres of beautiful scenery next to Lake Windermere.  After a minor hiccup where the bus could not access the road to get us to Hilltop, we headed straight for Brathay and were able to begin activities after a picnic lunch.  There was no easing into things and the children and staff were soon out on Windermere in kayaks, canoe rafts and other rafts followed by jumping of the jetty into the lake if you wished! After getting dry and then unpacking, everyone enjoyed spaghetti Bolognese and garlic bread followed by apple crumble and cream for our dinner. As the weather has turned a little bit sour, we are chilling in the common room playing games, table tennis and watching Russia versus Egypt in the World Cup. Next up tomorrow is ghyll scrambling, rock climbing and much more.
