This is a fabulous NT property on a bank just above Grasmere.
It has been partially restored with other areas being left alone to show how the house would have been.
There are lovely walks in the grounds and you are encouraged to picnic there. Inside there are lots of themed rooms and it is very hands on. It is perfect for children (young and young at heart!) as there are no don't touch signs. There is an art room, a games room and a typewriter room to name a few.
There is a recently opened cafe where you can help yourselves to free tea and coffee (donations welcome) and buy yummy homemade cakes and the like.
They encourage you to sit in the rooms with a cuppa reading or just enjoying the views over the Lake.
There is a fee for non NT members and there is no parking (except for blue badge holders).
All in all it us a fabulous place to while away a few hours in all kinds of weather.
