Ambleside

Hawkshead

A couple of years ago I visited a small village called Ambleside in Cumbria – Lake District, England’s North Country. Can highly recommend The Homes of Football, a museum with a vast collection of football photography and memorabilia.

Especially remember staying at the The Red Lion Inn nearby, a traditional 15th century Lakeland Inn situated in the beautiful village of Hawkshead. Took a morning walk before breakfast and it was like stepping into the scenes of Emmerdale Farm, so peaceful and calm, typical English countryside with walking trails crossing the shepherd’s land, and only me and the roosters awake this misty morning.

There’s a Beatrix Potter Museum in Hawkshead for those who are interested. 

Nearby villages of Windermere and Grasmere are very nice too.
