About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children.

You've had some lovely outdoors time and that's magic for re-energising the soul. Thanks for the beautiful photos, you have a gift for bringing what you see to share with other people x


Thank you for sharing that. My grandparents lived in Arnside and my family would visit many times each year. You brought back lots of memories.

Sarah - CraftySorcha

It sounds like you and the little people had a lovely weekend!
Also, you say eejit! I don't often see that in posts from people outside of Ireland, it made me smile! :)


Likewise. A joy to read and see it through your eyes. I had missed so much so will one day hope to make another visit.

Irene Porter

We were in the lake district in July and are sorry to have missed Arnside, but your photos make up for that. We visited your town on the way, what a nice town it is, particularly the walks along the canal. I love the way blogs can lead you to places you might otherwise know nothing about.

Sarah @ FairyFace Designs

Just like the poster above me I picked up on the "eejit" reference too, it made me smile too, I've never heard it away from home. Your few days look wonderful, and the pictures are beautiful.


Oh Lucy, you certainly packed a lot into 2 days! Lovely, lovely post, just like the holidays of our childhood ... you're certainly making lots of memories for your children. I love that ride across the viaduct ... when my son was at Preston University I often made the journey by train because it is such a beautiful one ...

We used to call them 'sugar stealers' too, and have never heard anyone else saying this ... until now!

Hope you found what you were looking for when you googled Piel Island, I know you'll love it!

Enjoy your week

Love Claire xxx

Lovely! The little train REALLY reminds me of the train in 'Spirited Away', an absolutely gorgeous Japanese film - http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/314/3/1/spirited_away_by_t0fuu-d4fs1uh.jpg


Just gorgeous, nothing like being by the sea.

Sounds wonderful! What a lovely train ride and such a pretty little village, gorgeous photos of the coast!


What a beautiful post!
The sea is stunning!
Thank you for sharing those two days.

What a wonderful post. I feel almost as if I was there with you. Photos just beautiful as always. Thank you so much Lucy for sharing with us all. Old family friends came from Barrow-in-Furness and I've never seen photos of that area. They came to Australia on the same ship as my family in 1948. Looks such a beautiful area. I've been back to England three times and seen quite a bit but haven't been anywhere around that part. I came from Gloucester originally and we visited relatives there and several other parts. Just loved it all and would love to come again and see more. Thank you Lucy for sharing I just love your posts.

Hi Lucy, I've really enjoyed reading you blog this morning over a cup of coffee (sadly no lemon cake with it, lol ). Do you know I really enjoy short breaks like that, especially in quiet places. The children seemed to really enjoy themselves too.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the holidays too.
Love Carole from Rossendale xx
ps I made the little bird brooch and I love it , thank you soo much for the pattern xx


This looks like a gorgeous place. Just the sort of place Hubbie, Niblet & I would love. Maybe next year Wales won't be the destination of choice!!


When I was a child and we lived in the UK, every camping holiday ended with the very last of the family funds spent on fish & chips eaten out of lined newspaper (I am old) on a bench nearest to the shop. Lovely memories even after all these many decades. Your photo reminded me of those times.


Wow...your pictures and your posts are always so extrodinarily beautiful! ♥♥♥


Thank you Lucy, I think I look forward to your holidays almost as much as you do! Love the way you spend your time, I always feel as if I've been invited along for a while.


An action-packed short break like that always feel like such good value doesn't it, more like a week than a couple of days. Glorious scenery- that tide is amazing and a tiny bit scary. Love how your snack breaks always include chocolate.

When I was a young girl I used to spend all summer holidays in Portalegre (my home town in Alentejo) at an aunt's house. Nevertheless all the other great memories, one of them is the trip we had to make by train. There was a piece of the railway it was near the Tejo River, with a castle (Almorol Castle) in the middle of the river that was gorgeous and invited us to dream. Your post refreshed my memories, thank you.

Anna-Marie Field

Hi Lucy, Simply Paradise!!!! Have a great week!!!


Part two beats part one ..... lovely Lucy glad you had a great break ... thanks for sharing!! xx Joy xx


It looks such a lovely time! Glad you've had such a nice time - lots more to come!
Hope there isn't too much of a mountain of bunting to come home to! My parcel hit the post last week - your poor postie delivering all the woolly wonders!
Maggie x x x


We live just two stops away from Arnside on the train and my children used to love going there for an ice cream and to watch the tide come in. Glad you told people to watch out for it. It is amazing to watch, but you would not want to be caught up in it. Am looking forward to visiting your town for Yarndale as we moved from Leeds to this side of the Pennines 18 years ago!!!! Your castle was always a favourite too. Thanks for the lovely photos

Carole C

Isn't it wonderful when a two night /day break can leave you as rested and energised as a whole week away ? Lovely pics of the beautiful coast.
Looking forward to your Dorset ones at the end of the month.
Carole xx


another one of your beautiful walks and rides that make me feel as if i had been there. love, love, love the carved stump, and the tide rushing in. wow. thank you for bringing us along, lucy, it does me more good than you'll ever know.
