Summer Cruising in the Lake District


Sit back and relax on this cruising break around the simply stunning Lake District! Admire the natural beauty of the sweeping valleys whilst sailing along the glistening lakes and enjoy free time in Kendal, Keswick, Grasmere and Windermere.


Day 1 – We make our way to Kendal. Handsomely built in limestone, Kendal is a traditional market town with a compact centre that offers a wide range of restaurant, cafés and all‐purpose shops.

After some free time, we continue to our hotel where we enjoy a welcome drink before our evening meal.

Day 2 – After breakfast we travel to Keswick, here we have included a boating trip around Lake

Derwentwater. On‐board you can enjoy special views of Skiddaw, England’s fourth highest mountain, Catbells and the ‘Jaws of Borrowdale’. Later, this afternoon we visit the village of Grasmere, made famous by poet William Wordsworth who wrote much of his poetry here.

Day 3 – Today, we have a day at leisure in Carlisle. Perhaps visit the remarkable Carlisle Castle (just a short walk away from the hotel). Originally built in 1092 by William Rufus, the castle is home to over 2000 years of history.

Day 4 – Today we have arranged a Steam Yacht Gondola cruise – an unrivalled sailing experience on

Coniston Water. Originally built in 1859, but now owned by the National Trust the Steam Yacht Gondola is the oldest steam yacht in the North of England. Afterwards, enjoy free time in Lakeside.

Day 5 – We retrace our footsteps back to the East Midlands.
