Itinerary

Description

Some of England’s finest scenery forms the backdrop on this charming short break, as we combine the shimmering waters of the Lake District with the gently rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales. We enjoy the stunning countryside and magnificent landscapes from different perspectives, from a picturesque journey on the heritage Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway to relaxing cruises on Lake Windermere and the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. This is the perfect chance to step back in time and enjoy the enduring appeal of these beautiful regions.

Coach Itinerary

Day 1
From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to our hotel, arriving in time for dinner and the first of two nights’ stay.

Day 2
We head to Haverthwaite where we take a step back in time as we climb aboard our heritage steam train on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway for a nostalgic journey through the picturesque Leven Valley to Lakeside at the southern tip of Lake Windermere.

From here we explore the beauty of Lake Windermere on a scenic cruise. We enjoy magnificent views of mountain scenery, secluded bays and many wooded islands as we cruise England’s largest lake. We disembark in Bowness-on-Windermere, a charming enclave on the eastern shores of the lake, where we enjoy free time in this bustling town with its craft and gift shops, lakeside cafés and tea rooms. We return to the hotel for dinner and our second night’s stay.


Please note: some rail and boat journeys may operate in reverse order. The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway reserves the right to substitute the steam locomotive with an alternative diesel-powered locomotive without notice or refund.

Day 3
After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head to the historic town of Skipton. Known as the Gateway to the Dales, Skipton also has a grand medieval castle as its centrepiece. Either before or after time at leisure to explore the town, we embark on a narrow boat cruise of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. As we gently cruise through the beautiful Yorkshire scenery, a hilarious recorded commentary by award-winning comedian Dave Spikey (of Phoenix Nights fame) tells us more about Skipton and the canal’s fascinating history. Food and drink is also available to purchase on board. We rejoin the coach in the afternoon for the journey home.
