Kelmarsh Hall

And all things come to an end we breakfasted and headed off! It was raining! So it seems we had the best of the weather!

Mr Quacks is followed on twitter by Kate the Visitor Services & Volunteer Coordinator at Kelmarsh Hall, so as it would be a good stop off point en route we popped into visit and have a stroll around the garden (the house wasn't open it has limited opening times but I will be back!). I like the fact there are tables to take your tea into the garden.

The garden however is lovely ....

Hill Top, Claife Viewing station et al

First stop this morning was Hill Top the home of Beatrix Potter, appropriate in her 150th anniversary.

There are 6 rooms open and it has been left as it was in Potter's day.

We wandered to Esthwaite alas no Osprey! Taking one of the picnics from Claife (nice pies, cheese, chutney, coleslaw, tomatoes and Crisps)
