With stunning landscapes and picture-perfect scenery all around it’s easy to see why the famous authors Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth fell in love with the serenity of the Lake District.
The Lake District
You’ll no doubt do the same on a coach trip to this area of unspoilt natural beauty. A haven for outdoor enthusiasts, the Lake District enjoys a slower pace of life and is defined by its quaint villages, comprised of distinctive slate buildings that are nestled between mountains, crags and shimmering waters.
At the heart of this magical area lies Lake Windermere, England’s largest natural lake on which you can enjoy a gentle boat cruise from the popular tourist towns Bowness and Ambleside. Meanwhile in the picturesque village of Grasmere, set beneath the jagged Lakeland fells, you can browse the many gift shops and pick up some gingerbread from the famous Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread Shop.
trip to The Lakes wouldn’t be the same without a visit to Hill Top Farm at Near Sawrey, the beloved former home of Beatrix Potter which inspired many of her much-loved works, including The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Tom Kitten and The Tale of Jemima Puddleduck.
