Days Two to Four: Morecambe
We spend the next three days in Morecambe, with two included excursions to enjoy discovering beautiful countryside and wider Cumbria.
We visit Dalemain an almost 500 year old country house near Penrith, the house hosts various exhibitions displaying Dalemain’s history. We then visit Penrith, a small and picturesque market town where you can explore fine pubs, independent shops and imposing Penrith Castle.
We then visit the stunning Lake District, heading to the pretty town of Bowness on the shores of Lake Windermere. From there we will enjoy the lake on a scenic circular cruise through the many islands and coves of the largest lake in England.
The other day is for you to enjoy at leisure. Morecambe has a number of great attractions, many centered along the promenade which stretches the seafront and views from here both out to sea and back inland are fantastic, with sunsets being particularly spectacular. (B,D)
Time to say goodbye today; we depart after breakfast and make our way to the interchange before returning home. (B)
Hotels in Morecambe are famous for extending a warm and friendly welcome to all travellers. Now you can experience this world-famous hospitality for yourself by staying with us at the Strathmore Hotel Morecambe. Our hotel offers fantastic views over Morecambe Bay and to the Lakeland fells beyond and is an ideal centre for discovering this marvellous area.
Just across the road from the beach and 15 minutes walk from the train station, the Strathmore allows you to do as much or as little as you see fit during your break.
Full Day: Dalemain and Penrith
