Birthday Treat in Cumbria *~*

Two years ago for my birthday we stayed for a few days in Cumbria, we had a wonderful break in the autumn sunshine....
Crummock Water, Buttermere
View from our room...
We stayed at the Bridge Hotel Buttermere..
We went for a long walks...
We visited Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's cumbrian farmhouse, where she wrote her Peter Rabbit and Co stories, now a museum displaying her life and works...
My Lovely Fin bought me this wonderful Beatrix Potter Journal...
It really is a very special book with lots of flaps and letters to open, I treasure it greatly...
Views from the house to Near Sawery
We then drove to Coniston for afternoon tea at Yew Tree Farm It is where Miss Potter was filmed... Cosy fires and beautiful damson jam!! It was very nice. They now run a B&B but not sure if they still open the tearoom
All very special and wonderful memories xx................ No. 3 7 11 19 Photos from Google images.
