    Our grandson chose to come here on our short break in the Lakes. The property is a short walk along the road from the car park, with clear instructions given to get here. The house is just as it was left, with Beatrix's hat on the chair, and shoes under it. It is not a s large a property as some, but it is fascinating. The garden is only small and there is a mobile catering van in a grass area by the garden, but it is not National Trust.

    This is such an enchanting house and garden. The staff are so informed and have a nice way of explaining as much or as little as you want to know whilst leaving you to look, stare, and cogitate on what life must have like in a small dark room at that time - but still charming.

    This small school was a pleasant little trip back into the past. I was completely fascinated by the original desks that date back to 1585. Looking at the carved names and initials made me feel like I was connected to someone from long ago. The documents in the upstairs room gave a great glimpse into local history. It os definitely worth the small price and takes about an hour of your time.

    This museum is simply superb. I went upstairs to the library and made a study of the books on mushrooms. There was an excellent exhibition on Beatrix Potter too. Excellent all round.

    A 'must see' for anyone visiting Ambleside - eclectic, traditional, contemporary, you name it, they seem to have it, and (important to me) friendly staff.
