Jo and I stayed here on our way back from Scotland at the start of September. We strongly recommend it.
It's a beautiful place, rain or shine.
Littletown Farm is a traditional working Lakeland farm offering bed & breakfast accommodation in the beautiful, unspoilt Newlands valley. The bed and breakfast is in the heart of the Lake District national park.
The Farmhouse is in a unique location nestled at the foot of Catbells and was the inspiration behind Beatrix Potters Mrs Tiggy-Winkle stories.
"Once upon a time there was a little girl called Lucie, who lived at a farm called Little-town. She was a good little girl only she was always losing her pocket-handkerchiefs!
One day little Lucie came into the farm-yard crying oh, she did cry so! “I’ve lost my pocket-handkin! Three handkins and a pinny! Have YOU seen them, Tabby Kitten?”"
On the evening we arrived we had a walk in the rain until it went dark (which is why their ponies are not very clear). Then we had a relaxing drink in the bar with the good company of .
Before breakfast (a traditional and very good English breakfast) we had another walk - this time in the bright sunshine.
Jo wasn't seriously thinking of climbing Causey Pike even though she thought it looked fairly easy (Ho. Ho.)
"“Sally Henny-penny, have YOU found three pocket-handkins?”

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
