  • 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!
  • We took the grand tour here, up the sweeping staircase into the great hall, where there is a fantastic view of the river.
  • What can I comment? It is a cute house on top of the bridge. Lol.
  • Very nice spot for a great picture!
  • I visited early as I only wanted to capture the outside without people about as it does get over crowded... there is a paid parking station near by but if you go early just for photos you can park for free before the time you have to pay...
