Lake District Delights Itinerary
Sunday We depart Cornwall in the morning and travel to Cumbria, arriving in time to settle in before dinner.
Monday This morning we make our way to the market town of Kendal, home to the famous ‘mint cake’ and a host of historical buildings and views. In the afternoon, we travel to Sizergh Castle, a beautiful medieval house, with rich gardens and estate.
Tuesday Today we head for the lakeside, first stopping at Bowness-on-Windermere to enjoy the beautiful landscapes surrounding Lake Windermere during our stop. There is time to relax and perhaps visit the Beatrix Potter museum before we continue to Ambleside, taking in the picturesque town with its wide variety of independent stores, museums and cafes. Later in the afternoon, we return via Coniston Water.
