Lake Windermere

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationLake Windermere is England's largest lake at 10.5 miles long, and at its deepest point is 219 feet. It is also the most popular part of the world renowned Lake District, as part of the South Lakes, surrounded by mountain peaks and picture book villages.

The village of Bowness-on-Windermere lies on the shore of England’s largest lake. Ferries run from here across Lake Windermere, while the traditional stone cottages, lakefront pubs, and lively fishing harbour tempt travellers to linger a little longer. The village is also home to the charming World of Beatrix Potter which brings Peter Rabbit and his friends to life in three dimensions, and discovers the writer's links to the area's conservation.

Kendal & Yorkshire Dales to Hawes

This is a fabulous day out, taking in two of the Lake District's most famous and loved market towns.

We start with Kendal, which by its own admission is no ordinary market town. Its streets are alive with vibrant events, quality shopping and a thriving arts and culture scene and it is full of historic character, Kendal hosts a web of interweaving alleyways and cobbled yards, whilst the ruins of medieval Kendal castle stand on Castle Hill, with great views over the town. Just wander and you'll discover for yourself why Kendal is so popular!

From Kendal we enjoy a sweeping drive through stunning landscapes on our way to the magical little market town of Hawes, set high upon a hill and enjoying stunning views. One of its biggest claims to fame is that it home to the world famous Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese and set amidst breath-taking scenery it's no surprise Hawes is one of the honeypot tourist attractions of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The name Hawes means a 'pass between mountains' and it stands between the stunning Buttertubs and Fleet Moss. If you fancy it, you can also discover the 18th Century water-powered cotton spinning Gayle Mill. Converted to sawmill and electricity generation with original working Victorian turbines, lineshafting and woodworking machinery.

The Northern Lakes - Grasmere, Ullswater & Kirkstone Pass

This is a stunning day out as you explore the beautiful northern Lakes. On this trip you will visit two stunning locations and travel through the highest pass, the Kirkstone Pass, which will afford you spectacular views across dramatic countryside. 

Lake Ullswater is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery to its south, softening to the gentle hills of the north. The lake is the second largest in England at seven and a half miles long, but is less than a mile across. It is also the third deepest English lake at 250 feet deep, so don't fall in! Grasmere nestles at the foot of some spectacular fells and has its own lake, whilst the village has many shops, pubs and cafes. You can also visit Wordsworth's grave in the churchyard and buy the legendary Grasmere Gingerbread.
