4 Days Away

Enjoying a memorable journey on the Haverthwaite Steam Railway this scenic railway trip travels through the stunning countryside arriving at the edge of Lake Windermere, where we will board our cruise, sailing along the lake is the ideal way to appreciate the beautiful surroundings which have inspired countless authors and poets. Ambleside is a pretty town set on the edge of Lake Windermere, a short walk from the town is the Stock Ghyll Force, a stunning 70 foot waterfall which used to drive the local watermills the only one remaining is the bridge house which is one of the most photographed scenes in the Lake District. Grasmere is the delightful village where Wordsworth made his home, and there are a plethora of tributes to him, buried in St Oswald’s Church the contemplative Wordsworth Daffodil Gardens are a fitting memorial. The tiny higgledy-piggledy village of Hawkshead is the home of The Beatrix Potter Gallery, the offices of her husband, William Heelis, which houses delightful exhibitions of her original drawings and paintings.
