When we were away
We have been back from Ambleside ( we had excellent weather) a week now so it is time high time for a post on the holiday.We managed to enjoy the surrounding countryside by walking-
This is Stock Ghyl Force in Ambleside.
High Sweden Bridge- an old pack horse bridge.
We also visited interesting places none more so than Blackwell- a house designed inside and out by M H Baillie Scott.He is probably my favourite Arts and Crafts architect and designer.
We also found splendid places to eat like Blackwell's above and Chesters , Skelwith Bridge below-
Chesters has an outside eating area perched just above the river and is a great place to think,read,write or daydream as well as enjoy generous portions of cake and fantastic home cooked pizzas. here is a link to them-
All in all a great holiday was had by the whole family.
