Holiday Highlights


The sheer beauty of the Lake District has inspired poets and artists for centuries, and the area needs little introduction. We feature a variety of interesting excursions, in particular a fantastic 'Mountain Goat' tour taken in small coaches, which reach the parts where others cannot go!


• ‘High Adventure’ Lake District tour

The tour focuses around the Western

Lake District travelling over the Lake

District’s famous mountain passes;

Hardknott and Wrynose, which are

some of the steepest in Great Britain.

• Lake Windermere cruise

Explore the beauty of England’s largest

lake in the heart of the Lake District

• Ullswater, Glenridding and

Kirkstone Pass

• Grange-over-Sands and

Morecambe Bay

Enjoy a gentle seafront stroll at

Grange-over-Sands with spectacular

views over Morecombe Bay


We depart from our local area in the morning for Cumbria,
arriving late afternoon at Riverside Hotel for the next 4 nights
stay with dinner, bed and breakfast.


Today we drive to Bowness, delightfully located on the shores
of Lake Windermere.We have time to look around before we
take the steamer from Bowness Pier for a relaxing sail to the
southern tip of the lake at Lakeside. From here we visit genteel
Grange-over-Sands, with spectacular views over Morecambe Bay.
Enjoy a gentle sea front stroll before we return to the hotel.


Enjoy some free time this morning and this afternoon we ride along
the shore of Ullswater, said to be the most beautiful lake of them all.
We halt awhile in Glenridding before climbing over rugged Kirkstone
Pass, with the lonely pub at the top, and descend to Windermere to
return to the hotel.


High adventure beckons today! The Mountain Goat minibuses take
us where larger coaches cannot go. This wonderful day takes in the
mountain passes of the Western Fells, Wrynose Pass and the desolate
Duddon Valley, and the awe-inspiring Hardknott Pass. See the Roman
fort as we descend into Eskdale for a ride on L’al Ratty - the Ravenglass
and Eskdale Miniature railway, before seeing Wastwater and then
visiting the grounds of Muncaster Castle with its World Owl Trust.
From here we return to the hotel via Coniston Fells and Coniston Water.


We say farewell to the Lakes and begin our journey home.
