Review of Bridge House

Bridge House
Ranked #7 of 50 things to do in Ambleside
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Pictures alone do not do justice to appreciating this little place; you need to see it; and there is a good teashop selling legendary apple pie and other good things just 30 yards away. An endearing image of Ambleside, than crowded shops and pubs!

I rate this 'average' simply because it is so small. However it is probably one of the most photographed buildings in Ambleside and certainly the smallest, with several different suggestions for its original purpose. Thisquaint little house that sits astride the small river is also a good NT information point

Quirky and unusual little house built over a river, not a great deal to see but is well worth a look if you're in the area and nice photo op

If you want to see this house and you`re visiting by car, park in the car park nearby, which for a change is a Pay and Display.......don`t pay for an hour, just leave the car on the hazard lights, take a photo and that`s it....it`s a 5 minute visit......but cute :-)

This is many peoples lasting memory of Ambleside. A small house on a bridge. Quaint but difficult to get over excited.
