What to expect

You'll kick off your day of exploring at Oxenholme Station where your expert guide will be waiting to whisk you away to the heart of the Lake District. You'll enjoy the scenic surroundings of the Cumbrian Mountains, stop to snap some photos at the tranquil Tam Hows and discover the silver waterfalls and impressive rock scenery of Langdale Valley.

Then, it's time to visit the tiny medieval market town of Hawkshead. With a charming mix of higgledy-piggledy houses and narrow cobbled streets, this pretty village in the heart of the Lake District was beloved by great writers like Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. Your next stop of the day will be Hill Top Farm, the former home of Beatrix Potter and the inspiration for so many of her characters. If you visit during the winter months, you'll see the 'World of Beatrix Potter' interactive exhibition instead as the farm is closed during that time.

After a busy day exploring, it's time to start unwinding. You'll enjoy a cruise on Lake Windermere where you'll be treated to stunning views of mountain scenery, secluded bays and wooded islands before relaxing with an English afternoon cream tea. You'll head to Lindeth Howe Country Hotel, which was once owned by Beatrix Potter herself, and enjoy tea and scones while soaking up the views of the stunning English countryside.
