A lovely little house that sits in the middle of Ambleside. Very unusual and well worth a quick peak inside.

Tiny novelty house owned by the NT. Unfortunately not open when I visited Ambleside. In centre of the town.

Bridge house is near the centre of Ambleside and is easily accessible. Just passed the house is a the old water wheel. A reminder of days gone by and good photo back drop.

Had a lovely time in this tiny and unique house. After seeing so many photos of it I just had to see it. The lady there was absolutely fascinating with her stories.

This is in Ambleside High Street, quaint little house with just two rooms, built over the river. We came across it by chance, free admission and worth a look.

This is just one of those places you come across and are absolutely fascinated by. When open you are able to enter into another period of time. You will only be here for a short while as there is not much to see or read...More

This appears to be open at times, but not when we were there but it is really lovely to look at and walk along the stream, you really feel you are in the Lake District here.
