Lounging in the Lake District 5 Days 19 – 23 July 2021

YOUR HOTEL Overlooking the pretty River Kent in the heart of Kendal, the Riverside Hotel is perfectly placed for our tour of Cumbria. The bedrooms are comfortable and tastefully furnished; all are en suite and have satellite television, telephone, hairdryer and tea & coffee making facilities.

MONDAY Depart from your home area in the morning for Cumbria, arriving late afternoon at Riverside Hotel.

This morning we make our way to the Cumbrian market town of Kendal, home of the ‘mint cake’. Kendal is home to a fine selection of shopping arcades, boasts two castles, museums, a host of historical buildings and views that would please the most demanding photographer.

WEDNESDAY Today we head for the lakeside, first stopping at Bowness-on-Windermere. Enjoy the beautiful landscapes surrounding you and the views across Lake Windermere during our stop, perhaps visit the Beatrix Potter museum. You will relax over lunchtime here today. We continue to Ambleside, taking in the picturesque town with its wide variety of independent stores, museums and cafes. Later, we return to the hotel taking in magnificent views as we cross through the national park to Kendal.

THURSDAY Today takes us into the North of the Lake District, travelling via Glenridding and Ullswater until we reach Keswick, the capital of the North Lakes area, where we also enjoy lunch. There is plenty to do and see here, perhaps visit the Keswick Museum or visit the Keswick Brewing Company during our stop. We return to the hotel, stopping in Grasmere. This small, but very well-known village is the perfect place to stretch your legs or perhaps enjoy a drink before we continue on.

Friday Sadly we leave after breakfast and begin our journey home.
