The beautiful and unique landscape that is made up of powerful mountains, fells and gigantic lakes formed the Lake District many thousands of years ago. Many famous artists have found inspiration from this landscape and quiet, tranquil environment. Some of which include the world famous poet William Wordsworth and the writer Beatrix Potter. Guests of the Ambleside bed and breakfast can follow in their footsteps by visiting local attractions that are dedicated specifically to them or they can simply choose to leave the attractions behind and head for the hills themselves and see where this wonderful inspiration came from.
The Old Vicarage Guest House Ambleside is located in Ambleside and this is right in the middle of the Lake District so is a perfect to use as a base to visit anywhere in Cumbria. There are many Ambleside B&Bs but The Old Vicarage is more than just an Ambleside bed and breakfast, it is a homely and comfortable B&B. It can also boast about the fact that it is the only bed and breakfast in Ambleside with its own swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, guest lounge and extensive terrace. It is a family run B&B that offers a warm welcome and a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Beatrix Potter was taught at home by a governess but this did not dampen her enthusiasm to learn. She was shy and had a reserved personality. She had a real passion for nature. Beatrix and her brother had many animals that they looked after together in their school room. These animals ranged from lizards to birds and mice to snakes. Some of the pets they kept later inspired some of the characters in her books. She taught herself to paint and draw the many beautiful things that she saw around her as she grew up. Her first and exceptionally successful book was The Tale of Peter Rabbit which she wrote in 1893.
