Lake District Holidays and Discovery - Included Excursions
Lakeland Rails, Sails and Tails (full day)
We head to Haverthwaite where we climb aboard our heritage train on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway for our nostalgic journey. We are transported back to the golden age of steam as we travel through the picturesque Leven Valley to peaceful Lakeside, the southern tip of Lake Windermere.
From here we explore the stunning beauty of Lake Windermere on a leisurely scenic cruise. Sit back and relax as we enjoy magnificent views of mountain scenery, secluded bays and many wooded islands as we cruise England’s largest natural lake.
We disembark in Bowness-on-Windermere, a popular resort and charming enclave on the eastern shores of the lake. We enjoy free time in this bustling town with its craft and gift shops, lakeside cafés and quaint tea rooms. We also enjoy free entry to the enchanting World of Beatrix Potter Attraction where an endearing short film presentation, exhibition and garden bring Beatrix Potter’s celebrated characters to life, complete with sights, smells and sounds of the glorious countryside.
The Kirkstone Pass, Hawkshead and Grasmere (full day)
We travel to Hawkshead via the impressive Kirkstone Pass. As the highest mountain road open to traffic, the views are unsurprisingly spectacular. The pretty, car-free village of Hawkshead is characterised by clusters of whitewashed houses, archways and alleyways, courtyards and squares, once beloved by William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, and offers pleasant inns, tea rooms and gift shops.
Afterwards, we continue on to Grasmere, the picturesque village associated with the poet William Wordsworth, who lived here for 14 years and declared the village as ‘the loveliest spot that man hath ever found.’
Keswick and Cockermouth – £12pp (full day)
Join our optional excursion where we head first to Keswick, a handsome market town that enjoys a lovely location sandwiched between peaceful Derwentwater and Skiddaw, England’s fourth highest mountain. Enjoy the pedestrianised Market Square, browse the unique shops and art galleries, or treat yourself in one of the quaint cafés and restaurants. We continue to Cockermouth, birthplace of William Wordsworth. This thriving market town boasts medieval and Georgian streets beneath castle walls, pretty Georgian shop fronts, small independent shops, a wide selection of interesting antique and gift shops plus cafés and pubs.
