Lake District 7 Days - Auckland Hotel
There is no better way to end a day exploring the Lake District than to enjoy the views of the Lake District hills across Morecambe Bay as the sun sets over the Bay � one of England�s most memorable sights. The Lake District is England�s largest National Park and has inspired more poetry than any other area of English landscape. Both Wordsworth and Coleridge lived and worked here for a time and every corner provides a new and enticing vista. The scenery is often seen at its best from the water and in this fascinating holiday we have trips on the two largest lakes, Windermere and Ullswater to complement the views across Morecambe Bay.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
