5 Day Coach Holiday
The Lake District is a tourist magnet with glassy waters, sky-scraping mountains and pretty as a picture market towns. An area of outstanding beauty, it is England’s largest national park, a World Heritage Site and home to Scafell Pike, its tallest mountain and Wastwater, its deepest lake. The region has long been associated with writers like Beatrix Potter and Wordsworth and, in the words of the great poet, truly is where you can wander lonely as a cloud. Our sightseeing takes in Keswick, Cockermouth and Bowness-on-Windermere. A special treat is our Mountain Goat Experience – a spectacular trip taking us off the beaten track on a route pioneered by the Romans.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

Keswick & Cockermouth
Nestling on the shores of the Derwentwater, the heart of bustling Keswick is its quaint Market Square and 19th century Moot Hall. Perhaps visit the museums or local art and craft galleries or stroll to the lakeshore and hire a rowing boat. We continue to Cockermouth, birthplace of William Wordsworth and home to the townhouse where he was born as well as a fascinating history wall depicting the town’s past.
A morning visit to Bowness-on-Windermere, a pretty lakeside resort where boat trips can be taken from the pier. Afternoon is free in Kendal with its castle and historic buildings.
Mountain Goat Experience
We venture off the beaten track by minibus for a special excursion into the Western Lakes, taking us over the Wrynose and Hardknot passes to Upper Eskdale, Scafell and Scafell Pike. We pause to admire the outstanding views at Wastwater, enjoy a ride on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway and visit Muncaster Castle Gardens.
