Overview

Book
Rose trellised cottages, ruined castles, sheep pastures, lively pubs, and shop-lined streets: England is every inch the storybook you’ve imagined. With its views of rolling hills blanketed in pastures, deep forest, dramatic mountains, and plunging dales dotted with lakes, it’s no wonder that this landscape inspired such celebrated figures as the painter J.M.W. Turner and writers William Wordsworth, Samuel Coleridge, and Beatrix Potter. You discover an untamed facet of England while crossing Whinlatter Pass, looking up at the surrounding peaks and catching the blue sparkle of Crummock Water and Buttermere Lake in the distance. Walking past the remains of prehistoric settlements in Lake District National Park, you come to the Celtic-era village of Pooley Bridge, home to welcoming pubs replete with traditional drink, food, and hospitality. Beside Aira Force waterfall, listen to your local guides weave stories from the region’s romantic past. From tarns and thwaites, to fireside pints, we provide everything you need to enjoy it all in style.

Highlights

    • The Lake District’s literary legacy comes to life during a tour of William Wordsworth’s Rydal Mount country home.
    • After a delightful afternoon walk along the wooded shores of Lake Derwentwater, ride home aboard a Victorian wood-paneled ferryboat.
    • Enjoy a unique perspective on the region’s past with walks through valleys of ancient slate mines and along paths built by long-forgotten quarrymen.
