Lovely Traditional B&b
This is a classic B&B that seems to be doing what B&Bs should do best for years. Comfy bed, lots of hot water and a delicious full English breakfast complete with Cumberland sausages and eggs from the owners own hens. The owner is a gem... born & bred in Haskshead, she's full of wise suggestions of what to see and do and has a charming, droll sense of humour.

Wonderful Stay
Ann Tysons House is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Hawkeshead, in the middle of the village down a little street that has retained the feel of the old village. The house it self has very comfortable bedrooms, a great breakfast and a very friendly owner. Take the time to look at some of the facinating photo's hanging in the hall taken by the owners grandfather. We had a great time staying there.

A Cosy, Comfortable Place
It has a nice, homely atmosphere and very substantial breakfasts which are served between 8:30 and 9. It's also a very historical building. I would definitely recommend the place if you want to stay in the area.

Excellent Stay
We selected Ann Tyson from an internet search and we scored a "HOME RUN". This B&B was fantastic, with excellent accomadations, friendly and helpful people to take care of us. They seemed to really care about our pleasure. I only wish they were somewhere in the US, so we could spend some more time togather. Would reccommend this B&B to anyone who enjoys good atmosphere, hearty breakfast, and fantastic scenery.

Comfortable Stay
We had a comfortable stay at Ann Tyson's. The owners were friendly and helpful but

unobtrusive which we found relaxing. The cottages are old full of character. The shower was hot and efficient and breakfast excellent. I have a back problem and worry about sagging mattresses. This bed was firm but comfortable. The room was warm and totally soundproof so we slept well.

Stott Park Bobbin Mill - Newby Bridge - Museum

Stott Park Bobbin Mill - Newby Bridge - Museum

Distance 6.42 miles (10.27 km)
A working mill built in 1835, Stott Park created the wooden bobbins vital to the spinning and weaving industries of Lancashire. Typical of mills across Cumbria, today you can see industry from a bygone age and watch as bobbins are made using the mill's original machinery. Although Stott Park worked continuously until 1971, it remains almost identical to its Victorian appearance of 100 years ago. With its Victorian machinery originally powered by a waterwheel and steam engine, Stott Park used birch, ash and sycamore to make wooden tool handles as well as bobbins. The mass of belts which fill the building still drive the cutting, boring and finishing machines than turn long thin poles into bobbins. You can watch a bobbin being made, and take it home as a souvenir.
