The Lake District’s truly ‘awesome’ scenery makes the region one of our most popular holiday destinations and one to which people return year after year. Unique in England, the area has a character and charm which has attracted visitors for many years and inspired poets, artists and writers for centuries.
This year we are returning to the charming town of Grange over Sands which is a delight to explore. With a long level promenade, public parks, interesting independent shops, superb views over Morecombe Bay and being only 6 miles from Lake Windermere, it’s a great destination for a tour of the Lake District.
This year we have added a wonderful boat trip cruising on Lake Windermere and visit the impressive Levens Hall & Gardens plus we are joined by our excellent local guide for a lakes tour.
After being collected from your local pick up point around 7.30am, we have comfort stops as required. Arriving early evening.
A day at leisure in Grange-over-Sands. Relax around the hotel lounges and grounds and stroll in to town. There is a range of shops and cafes plus a lovely park. If you wish to explore further afield, the train station is close to the hotel.
Great day out today as we are joined by our excellent local guide. Always a popular day covering the highlights of the region with a fascinating commentary on the local history, geology and famous people linked with the Lakes.
DAY 4 – Minor alteration from previously advertised
We start by visiting Levens Hall. This magnificent Elizabethan mansion has been home to the Bagots for over 400 years and contains a marvellous collection of Jacobean furniture and fine paintings with stewards on hand to enhance your visit. The world-famous gardens were laid out in 1694 and contain the oldest topiary in the world! A remarkable sight. Arriving in Bowness for a lunch stop in the town before boarding one of the excellent pleasure boats for a 40 minute cruise to Lakeside. Entrance and lake cruise included.
We head home with comfort stops as required. Arriving back in the local area around 6.00pm.
