Highlights

 

Kendal   |   Bowness on Windermere   |   Derwentwater Boat Ride   |   Grasmere   |   Rydal Mount & Gardens   |   Keswick

 

Day One

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door home pick-up service and join your coach journeying north to Kendal ‘Gateway to the Lakes’ for lunch then onto your hotel in Keswick, time to relax before dinner.

 

Day Two

After breakfast we depart for Bowness on Windermere, travelling through beautiful scenery via Ullswater Lake and over Kirkstone Pass before descending to Lake Windermere.  Bowness is a popular tourist town on the shore of Lake Windermere.  Here we have time at leisure where you could take time to visit the World of Beatrix Potter (admission not included) or perhaps have refreshments in one of the towns many tea rooms.

 

Day Three

This morning we take a 50 minute boat ride on Derwentwater before continuing to Grasmere, famous for its gingerbread and of course it was once the home of the famous poet William Wordsworth.  After time for lunch we make the short journey to visit Rydal Mount and Gardens, home to Wordsworth for 37 years.  Wordsworth was a keen landscape gardener and the 4 acre garden remains very much as he designed it, the house which now belongs to descendants of Wordsworth contains portraits, personal possessions and first editions of the poets work.

 

Day Four

Today is at leisure in Keswick, though only a small town it has a range of shops and service far larger than might be expected.  You can find lots of lovely shops both in the main Market Square as well as every alley and side street.

 

Day Five

This morning we enjoy our last breakfast before departing for home, refreshment stops enroute.
