The Lake District is one of the most beautiful and celebrated places in Britain.
Loved by artists and tourists alike – as the leaves in the valleys turn from green to gold, the autumnal colours make it a breath-taking place to visit during the months leading up to Christmas. Taking a boat trip on a crisp autumnal day will mean that the water acts as a mirror, reflecting the bright colours of autumn all around you. An inspirational experience!
The Cumbria Grand is a charming AA 3-Star Victorian Hotel set in 20 acres gardens and woodlands and over-looking Morecambe Bay. All the en-suite bedrooms offer TV, hairdryer, telephone and beverage tray. Dine whilst enjoying the commanding views overlooking the Bay and the adjacent golf course. Delicious dishes are made with fine produce to tempt you at the carvery tables which can be complimented by a selection of fine wines from around the globe.
A warm open fire welcomes you to the comfortable lounge and bar from where to enjoy your entertainment.
First we’ll take a trip through the heart of the Lake District to the ever popular market town of Keswick offering a variety of antique, book and jewellery shops, arty galleries and attractions where there is always something special to be found.
In the afternoon enjoy a 50 minutes boat trip from Keswick – experience the beauty of Derwent water with breath-taking views of the surrounding fells..
Today you’ll enjoy a nostalgic steam train journey that offers beautiful views of the Leven Valley on the historic Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway before boarding a delightful cruise along the Lake Windermere from Lakeside to Bowness on Windermere – this spectacular voyage gives you magnificent views of mountain scenery, secluded bays and the many wooded islands.
