5 & 8 Days Half Board by Coach
The English Lakeland must surely be one of the best-loved, and most beautiful, regions in the British Isles. Here the sight and sound of water is never far away, adding a magic and serenity that draws visitors back time and time again. Our holiday base is Kendal, often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Lakes’. This ancient market town is the focal point for the area and has many historical buildings, fascinating craft and curiosity studios, a good shopping centre, and a superb Norman castle.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

Full day: Our full day tour takes in the delightful lakeland trio of Bowness, Hawkshead and Lakeside. Our first visit is to Bowness-on-Windermere, the popular tourist haunt, with its quaint alleyways and lively lakeside quays, before making our way to Hawkshead, one of the Lake District’s most picturesque villages. On our way back to Kendal we drop into pretty Lakeside where there is an opportunity to take an optional ‘steamer’ cruise on Lake Windermere.
Full day: Our tour today takes in northern Lakeland, stopping first at the idyllic village of Grasmere, where the poet William Wordsworth lived. Then by the banks of Thirlmere we come to Keswick, a market town set on the shores of Derwentwater, where there is time to explore this lively centre. This afternoon we head for the shores of Ullswater, one of the largest and most beautiful lakes, before ascending Kirkstone Pass with its breathtaking lake and mountain views.
Half day: This morning we head for the ancient town of Kirkby Lonsdale, which grew up as a crossing point for the River Lune and is one of the few Cumbrian towns mentioned in the Doomsday Book.
8 Day Holiday Bonus!
Half day: As an added bonus on 8 day holidays, you’ll also enjoy an extra half day tour. Visit Appleby-in-Westmorland, which lies in a loop of the River Eden in the middle of beautiful Fell Country, where time seems to have stood still.
