It was lovely to get away; I love Ambleside but it's a lot busier than the last time I was there (that's ancient history almost).
Guest house was nice, once you got used to the 'Don't do' notices. We came in late on Friday a little the worse for a drink or two and we 'sushed' each other in our quietest voices (yeah...you know how that is, right?) but I worried all night that we might get told off and 'asked to leave the premises without recompense'.
Anyway...all was well, I just looked knowingly and accusingly at the other -younger- couple at breakfast!
Then, after a yummy Full English
we hit the hills:
We bimbled into Skelwith Bridge and found this fantastic cafe and decided it would be rude not to stop.
Great chimney pots!
Thought it would be a hoot to snap interesting gate fastenings! This is the only one we found after that momentous decision!
An an amazing new bridge over Skelwith Force..wow!
Great iron work
