Tim was right on time to pick us up. Very pleasant fellow but unfortunately the weather was not pleasant. He somehow managed to take us to every stop, advised us on photo opportunities and had an entertaining banter along the way.

Sadly the weather is something we have no control over and it can be very changeable in the Lakes. Having said that though there is still beauty to be seen even when it rains. Glad you enjoyed the tour.

Beatrix Potter is so much more than her "little books" and we love to explain in depth about her life and visit so many places with associations to her. Gillian will be pleased that you had such a good time with her.

I've been a Brontes fan since 1982, when I first read 'Jane Eyre', when I was 12. Wanted to visit the parsonage, not long after. I turned 50 recently, and thought it was time I did a Brontes pilgrimage. I absolutely loved it. It was...More
