  • I first saw this quaint house in 1980 whilst on a school trip. Finally got back to see it again and still love it. It is a must-see place in the lake district. Owned by the National Trust, it is open most days for people to view.
  • A lovely little house over a river. A must see for any Lakes fan. Hard to believe that 8 people used to live here!
  • It’s a very small house on a bridge. But, if in Ambleside it’s a tourist must see. Although it seems hard to believe, there is sometimes a queue for the photo opportunity on the stairs.
  • An essential part of any first-to-Lake District tourist visit. Now owned by the National Trust and open for viewing most days...a VERY small house, on a bridge!
  • A curious building worth visiting if you're around.
