In The Heart Of The Lakes 2023 - Grand Uk Gold
5 Days | Half Board | by Coach
Grasmere, Ullswater, Lakeside, Coniston Water, Hawes, Keswick, Kendal, Kirkstone Pass
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. Windermere is perhaps the best known of the Lakeland treasures, but there are so many idyllic lakes, winding lanes and peaceful villages it's no wonder that Wordsworth gained so much inspiration here. We have some wonderful scenic tours lined up for you, exploring the very best of this beautiful area and we think you'll love every minute.
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: A full day Lakeland adventure today, so phones and camera’s at the ready! We start with a visit to Bownesson- Windermere, the popular tourist haunt, with its quaint alleyways and lively lakeside quays, before driving along the shores of Windermere to pretty Lakeside. Here there is an opportunity to take an optional ‘steamer’ cruise on Lake Windermere. In the afternoon we visit the shores of Coniston Water, the third largest of the lakes and forever associated with the fateful story of speed ace Donald Campbell.
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 tourist 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.
FULL DAY: This morning we head to Kendal, often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Lakes’. This busy market town has many historical buildings, fascinating craft and curiosity studios and a superb Norman castle. From here we traverse into the Dales to reach the tourist honey pot of Hawes, famous for its Wensleydale Cheese.
