The Lake District is always a popular holiday destination, famous for its lakes, forests and mountains. We offer a full itinerary of things to see and do. Including a cruise on Lake Windermere from Bowness to Lakeside, before embarking on a steam train at the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway. We visit Dalemain House & Gardens, home to the very special blue poppies. That’s just a few of our days out…
Your comfort is our priority and all travel arrangements have been made with this in mind. Comfort stops will always be planned en route for lunch/refreshments. We will arrive at the hotel in the late afternoon, where your luggage will be taken to your room (unless otherwise specified) and you will have plenty of time to freshen up before the evening meal. Return travel will follow a similar schedule.
