First Family Visit

3 January 2011

We had our first family trip to Thorney How today. This was the first time that two of our daughters, Julia and Laurie had had the opportunity to look around and to get to know the house. After the New Year weekend there were no groups booked in so we had access to the whole property and grounds.

We were keen to find out what winter problems there had been – yes a few pipes burst and no rubbish collections. This was also a good opportunity to measure up a few important rooms, mainly those that we intend to use for our personal space.

I also wanted to get a good look around the grounds and to take some more photographs.

This was my favourite view standing on top of the rocky mound called Thorney How looking up and across to Helm Crag in the background beyond the house.

Heading back we stopped off in Ambleside for Cornish pasties and then went to see The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader in 3D at The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal as a family New Year cinema treat.


Last Xmas / New Year in Kentmere

3 January 2011

Christmas Tree at Old Forge Cottage 2010

This will be our last Christmas and New Year at Old Forge Cottage in Kentmere, this has been our family home for the last 15 years since we moved here in 1995.

We were very surprised, yet pleased to sell so quickly. We have loved living here very much and hope that the new owners enjoy it equally as much. As Wainright’s Outlying Fells Guide quote says; from Green Quarter it is “one of the most beautiful views in Lakeland”

See our Hackney & Leigh property details here.

We wish everyone a prosperous and happy new year in 2011.

Happy New Year everyone for 2011


Welcome to the Thorney How Blog

31 December 2010

Hi, this is the start of a new blog initially charting our progress moving from Old Forge Cottage in Kentmere to Thorney How in Grasmere.

Two first steps:

  1. establishing this blog
  2. starting the major task of organising (and rationalising) all of our stuff.

We don’t have a move date yet. But we are expecting this to be early to mid February 2011.

We are the Nuttall family. Taylor, Carolyn and Laurie. Emma and Julia currently live away from home.
