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. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home.

I to have spent many happy times at Malham as I was born in the village of Langcliffe which is just down the road,done a lot of walking and drinking......

PHWOAR!!!! (Is that how you spell it??) You certainly have some SCENERY up there, Lucy! Norfolk is lovely but we have gentle undulations, not great swooping hill like that. Of course my Other Half is from Even Further Up North, in Northumberland, and we both miss the grand scenery to be found up there. On the whole we are happy here, but sometimes ...sometimes ....

Sounds just the kind of outing we would love - especially winding up in the pub for lunch. Great photos, thank you for the trip!

Someone painted a picture of that gorge but it was not a conventional work of art, it was an angry picture with slashes of paint. Apparently it caused a sensation in the period of was done. I have seen it on TV, probably on a documentary.

I went to Malham on a geographical thingey when I was at school. Also cycled around there.

Your photos are beautiful. That's one of my favourite parts of the country.

I received my Yarndale bag too.


What a beautiful place to visit, you are so lucky to live near to it. reminded me a little of cheddar gorge in places. Lovely photos, you will never forget these days with your little ones


Un paisaje impresionante , lleno de belleza. Una preciosa excursión. Saludos desde España.


It all looks very fairytale-ish (if that wasn't a word before it is now). Beautiful, just beautiful!


Ahh, I remember traipsing around in nature with a pair of half-reluctant youngsters, and they're some of our best family memories. Life is sweet. Quite a stunning landscape you've got there, too! 'Course the best part, to me, is the pub afterwards. :)


Spectacular photography, Lucy! I could smell the damp greens, feel the mizzle and enjoy your young ones playing. Thanks for always taking us along with you.

Hi Lucy.. what a neat place to visit! The water looks refreshing.. do people swim under that waterfall in the summer? All the mossy-ness and waterfalls remind me of here in Oregon! I invite you to pop over to my blog and see some photos I put up yesterday of our Mt. Hood.. we were in it's foothills and were very close to it.. pretty! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Oh, the landscape seems to be so fatal like from the historical novel!
Our family (three boys: 10, 8 and 4 years, my husband and me) loves the Prosiecka valley in the Slowakia. We hope to walk it all along this summer, as yearly.
Best wishes from the Czech republic!


Beautiful! We are trying to have "outside time" each weekend too, but I'm afraid I'm one of the worst whiners! I'd rather be holed up in my house with a book or my yarn. So, I have to paste a smile on my face and try to pus the wee ones out the door.

We have land- about 40 acres- owned by my Husband's family, and we very much like to tramp around on it. We are building what I call a "summer porch" there- a place to hang out, have a meal, build a campfire, that sort of thing.


such a beautiful place, and so very much like the landscape up here. I am a faithful reader of your blog, but alas very lazy to comment.
best wishes from Iceland


Beautiful post and what a lovely adventure! Sounds like an amazing, memorable day.


What a lovely outing! Please adopt me!! LOL


Just lovely. I was planning a trip back from France and wanted to stay in your part of the world, but in the end it worked out (for various reasons) that we need to stay in London which is a *great shame* as I was really looking forward to it. Ah, well. Never mind - I have the names now of some splendid places to visit when I do get there. Thank you.


That stick racing game? My children did it too--we call it Pooh sticks.


Sounds like a wonderful day, such stunning scenery, I love to read about your adventure out and about in the countryside. :0)

Thank You, Lucy, for sharing such lovely photos and taking us on your journys out and about. It really does seem to be so beautiful in your part of the country. There was a time that I loved just outside Yellowstone Park (mentioned above by Nancy) and the joy of being out in that kind of area is indescribable. Your children will remember, and be glad.


This Anglophile stuck in South Carolina (a nice place itself but not England) loves the feeling of wandering around with you and your family. Thank you!


You have so many places to visit. Enjoy your time with children, they grow up so fast. Then you have to wait for grandbabies, and don't have quite the same engery as now. Would love to come see your country and visit your studio. Time to get ready for golfing, have a great day.


Just wonderfull places! I would like visit there too.

Such a beautiful place! I am so interested in those stories of fairies at Janets Foss. I will have to Google that!


Soooo very beautiful and green, that colour green is something I miss in Western Australia, our greens get sunburnt so very quickly.
The 3 months that I spent in England were April to early July, I remember seeing the glorious green grass, leaving the path to walk on it and being very surprised at how soft and spongy it was underfoot.
Happy exploring
