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.

After a delicious full breakfast we start by visiting nearby 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. Continuing to the lakeside town of Bowness with free time here and a chance to grab some lunch. In the afternoon we have also included a cruise on Lake Windermere with one of the excellent pleasure boats. A memorable day out! Entrance and lake cruise included.
