DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – We travel north through the scenic Yorkshire Dales National Park, enjoying the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct and the Wensleydale town of Hawes as we venture to our hotel in Grange-over-Sands.
Day 2 – After breakfast we visit Holker Hall and Gardens for free time. This grand Victorian house is the family home of Lord and Lady Cavendish where you can explore the fine collection of antique furniture and art without the restriction of ropes and barriers. Highlights include the distinguished library, drawing rooms, and dining room. We return to the hotel for the afternoon at leisure.
Day 3 – Following a relaxing morning, we travel to nearby Haverthwaite station for a glorious journey on the historic Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway which runs to the southern tip of Lake Windermere. Here, we will cruise Lake Windermere to Bowness-on-Windermere enjoying fantastic views across the wooded shoreline and distant Lakeland fells. Enjoy a little free time in Bowness-on-Windermere before we head back to the hotel.
Day 4 – Our excursion today will take us to the heart of Coniston Water, the third-largest lake in the Lake District – during the day we will visit Coniston and Hawkshead, two of the most picturesque villages in Britain with free time to explore.
Day 5 – We retrace our footsteps home with comfort stops along the way.
