Beatrix Potter - Image and Reality

If you think that Beatrix Potter was just an author, think again. The truth about this remarkable and highly talented lady is revealed in this exhibition. Told through her own words and images using material bequeathed by Beatrix Potter to the Armitt upon her death in 1943, the exhibition tells the story of her extraordinarily life.

A Winter Walk to the Lion and the Lamb

The Lion and the Lamb is one of the most iconic natural features in the Lakes. But is it all it appears to be, or is there more to this famous landmark than meets the eye? We take a closer look.

Holme Fell

Holme Fell, (sometimes spelled Holm Fell) sits beside the main A593 road between Ambleside and Coniston. This wonderful fell, the second lowest 'Wainwright', is not as popular as the other low fells in the district, however, those that take the walk to the top are rewarded with superb views. Our walk finishes by returning via the shore of Yew Tree Tarn, which, unlike most of the tarns in the Lake District, is yet to reach its 100th birthday.

Fancy a walk. Get instructions for a wide range of Lake District Walks here
