    INCLUDED EXCURSIONS


    Windermere Lake Cruise
    Cruise on Lake Windermere

    William Wordsworth said, “Windermere ought to be seen both from its shores and from its surface. None of the other Lakes unfold so many fresh beauties to him who sails upon them.” Taking his advice we will be taking the ferry from Bowness to Ambleside which is truly an experience of a lifetime. We'll have some time in Ambleside to enjoy this quaint lakeside town, popular sites include, the Bridge House, St Mary's Church and a huge number of pubs for a town of its size.

    Keswick in the Lake District
    Excursion to Keswick & Grasmere

    We will visit Keswick on the banks of Derwent Water for fantastic views across the lake and great places to enjoy afternoon tea. A great short walk just half a mile out to Friars Crag gives wonderful views of Derwentwater. We also visit Grasmere, home to William Wordsworth for over 14 years, who called it, “the loveliest spot that man hath ever found." For a full experience of Grasmere take a walk around the lake here, which takes just over an hour.
