The Lake District is an area of outstanding beauty with soaring peaks, glassy lakes and charismatic market towns. We take in the best with excursions to Bowness-onWindermere, a sprawling tourist magnet on the shores of Lake Windermere with a distinctive Victorian influence. Charming Grasmere, the onetime home of Wordsworth is where you’ll find the poet’s Dove Cottage whilst quaint Keswickoffers craft galleries and rowing boats for hire. Our base is the welcoming County Hotel, a former coaching inn near the heart of historic Kendal within easy reach of the river. Kendalitself is a delight with attractions such as Abbott Hall Art Gallery, which houses the Museum of Lakeland Life. GOOD COMPANIONSstaying for five days can also look forward to an outing to Hawesto take in the atmosphere on market day before our insight into the thousand-year history of cheese-making as we enjoy a fascinating guided tour and demo at Wensleydale Cheesefollowed by a tasty ploughman’s lunch.
Situated near the heart of historic Kendal within easy reach of the shops and river, this comfortable former coaching inn promises a warm welcome and friendly service. There is a cosy lounge complete with sprung dance floor.
