Reading Passage M odule 4

Dear Patrick,

We've decided to stay in a self-catering cottage and we've found a nice one in the Lake District, in
Cumbrian countryside. It's less than two hours' drive from Manchester and just one mile from
Coniston. Coniston is a small village in the heart of the Lake District. The village offers shops, cafés
and pubs, so we can go for a drink in the evening.
It is a perfect place for walking and climbing and activities for all the family. I think it is an ideal
place for the children. The cottage is only ten minutes' walk from a lake and we can hire a boat and
go fishing. I know you lo ve going fishing so you can get some físh for us!

and dishwasher. There is also a barbecue and a big garden área with garden furniture where we can
relax and enjoy the view from the lake and the mountain. We can even eat outside (weather
Now, the cost. It's a bit more expensive than last year's place - £550 for the week. There's room for

details. Looking forward to hearing from you.
