The Lake District lies in north-west England and is one of the most beautiful regions in the country, if you like lakes and hills. High hills as seen behind this pretty house which is located on the banks of Grasmere lake. Surrounded by a pretty woodland garden, this sturdy stone-built house has curved sash windows, an extended roofline and a covered verandah. I could see myself sitting on that verandah on a swing seat piled high with cushions, a cat curled up in the sunny spot, a table cluttered with garden magazines, potted plants and coffee cups…
…admiring the view

When I went to Grasmere last year, I though the same thing about sitting watching the peaceful lake. You captured a timeless feel with these, Jude.
Best wishes, Pete. x
It’s a wonderful landscape. So green and lush and I just love those hills. It’s probably not so great in the peak season though when crammed with tourists.
That looks like a very inviting spot indeed, Jude. I could picture myself there too! 🙂
Room for us both I think 🙂
I would love to explore this part of England. I’ve only been to London. So much to see!
Oh, you’d love this area, it really is stunning.
How far is it away from London via car? Would love to explore more than just London someday!
By car I’d estimate 5 hours. By train possibly 3.5
The black and white perspective give a whole new meaning to photographs. We have been spoiled with color but now the B&w are more intriguing. I believe we take our time with them.
I like your daydreaming, Jude. Staying there for a while would be a lovely treat.
Yes, that would do nicely for weekends!
I reckon it would do 😀
Pure bliss, Jude. I would love to visit the Lake District. When I was looking at your dream cottage I was thinking – a mansion 🙂
Just an old Victorian villa I think Paula, but a mansion to you and I 🙂
