We will leave early morning and travel to Grange-Over-Sands for a 4 night stay with comfort stops en route.
After breakfast, we will take a trip through the heart of the Lake District to the ever popular town of Keswick, before continuing to England's most beautiful lake, Ullswater, for a cruise on a steamer from Pooley Bridge. (Due to the Historic nature of the boats, wheelchair access will not always be possible).
Today we will enjoy a one-way steam train journey through the beautiful Leven Valley on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, before boarding a delightful cruise along Lake Windermere from Lakeside to Bowness-on-Windermere. Spend the rest of the afternoon in Windermere to enjoy and explore.
After a leisurely breakfast, it will be full steam ahead to the Western Lakes for a nostalgic trip back in time on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway. Enjoy a return trip on Lakelands oldest and longest railway to the foot of England's highest mountains. (Although most trains are scheduled to be operated by steam engines, diesels are also operated and may replace steam at short notice for operational reasons).
Like all great adventures, they must come to an end, so sadly we depart for home with comfort stops en route.
