We drive to Bowness, delightfully
located on the shores of Lake Windermere here
we have time to look around before we catch the
‘steamer’ from Bowness Pier for the relaxing sail
to the southern tip of the lake at Lakeside. From

spectacular views across Morecambe Bay. Enjoy
a gentle sea front stroll and explore before we

the lonely pub at the top and descend to
Windermere and our return to the hotel.

Grasmere village and we take a break so that you
can visit the famous Gingerbread Shop. From
here we continue north over Dunmail Raise, past
Lake Thirlmere, to Keswick where we have time to
explore and obtain a drink and a bite to eat
before we leave in the afternoon and retrace our
steps to the hotel.

journey home.
