5 Day Coach Holiday

The Lake District is a tourist magnet in northwest England, famous for glassy waters, verdant forests, sky-scraping mountains and picture postcard market towns with traditional inns and local art. It is England’s largest national park, a World Heritage Site and an area of outstanding beauty, as well as being 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, really is where you can wander lonely as a cloud. We explore Keswick, home to nineteenth century Moot Hall, then Cockermouth with its fascinating history wall depicting the town’s past. On another day, we visit Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria’s most popular destination. A special treat will be our Mountain Goat Experience – a spectacular trip taking us off the beaten track and concluding with a ride on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway, and a visit to Muncaster Castle Gardens.

Your Excursions

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. The town also features a fascinating history wall depicting its past.

Bowness-on-Windermere
A morning visit to Bowness-on-Windermere, a sprawling town on the shores of Lake Windermere with a distinctive Victorian influence. It is home to fifteenth century St Martin’s Church with its ancient paintings and stained glass windows. This pretty lakeside resort also features a stretch of the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway, and boat trips can be taken from the pier.

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.
