DAY TWO

We take the scenic route past Lake Windermere, Thirlmere Reservoir then Bassenthwaite Lake to the Lakes Distiller where a tour and tasting of their own whisky, gin or vodka awaits.  Depart for time at leisure in Keswick which is surrounded by some of the area’s highest and most beautiful peaks.

 

DAY THREE

A leisurely morning beginning with a short heritage rail journey from Haverthwaite to Lakeside.  No visit to the Lake District would be complete without a cruise and it is from here you will sail across Lake Windermere to Bowness.  After disembarking explore this popular holiday village at leisure, there are cafes, restaurants, shops and places to visit such as the World of Beatrix Potter attraction.
