Day 1 Morning departure for the journey north to the Lake District and to Grange-over-Sands for a four night stay.
Day 2 Today you will travel by way of Broughton-in-Furness to the tiny village of Hawkshead, with its higgledy-piggledy houses, archways and squares for a coffee stop before continuing to Grasmere at the foot of some spectacular fells with its own lake. Enjoy some free time to explore and have lunch, and make sure you visit Sarah Nelson’s little shop where you can buy Grasmere Gingerbread that is quite simply the best in the world. Continuing onto Keswick, a pretty market town in the Northern Lakes.
Day 3 This morning you will travel to the Lakes Aquarium at Lakeside for a visit before embarking on a boat for a one-way cruise on Windermere to Bowness. On arrival there will be free time to have some lunch and perhaps stroll along the lakeside or shop before visiting the World of Beatrix Potter and meet your favourite characters in a magical setting. Tonight, you will tuck into a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.
Day 4 Today you will visit the Lakeland Farm Visitors Centre, for an authentic farm visitor experience in the Lakes. Watch demonstrations, meet the livestock and visit the café and farm shop on site. The afternoon will be free to look around Grange-over-Sands or relax in the hotel.
