Completing my Bucket List

Go to a chilli festival

So you may, or may not notice by now that I am a massive “Chilli head”.  As far as I’m aware there is only one chilli festival in Scotland yearly, and unfortunately Its always the same day we head off for our September vacation.

I looked into the nearest Chilli festival this year and came across The Lakes Chilli Fest in the north of England, 260 miles away.  So booked a last minute B&B, left at 6am and headed to the Lake District.  Five hours later, 3 driver swaps and coffee breaks we finally arrived at Dalemain Estate.


First stop was for some chilli cupcakes and chocolate coated chillis!11222112_1632835086928533_3388658800434076149_n11752518_1632835050261870_7072794278024177800_n

Then onto some chilli cheese

Then the spices and hot sauces! May have gotten a bit carried away.


After our shopping we stopped for some lunch and churros.

So with full bellies, and empty pockets we left our first (not last) chilli festival.


A few more bottles added to the collection
