For lovers of Beatrix Potter and her world famous children’s stories and for those interested in William Wordsworth this is a scenic tour exploring the literary associations of southern Lakeland. Visiting eight lakes including the exquisite Tarn Hows. we visit many places, houses and farms that are associated with Beatrix Potter including her famous Hill Top farm; the very first farm belonging to Beatrix which can still be seen just as it was when she lived there. We see where William Wordsworth and his family are buried in the Churchyard in Grasmere Village, right next door to the Gingerbread Shop which is a must for many passengers, also a look at Dove Cottage where Wordsworth was living when he wrote his most famous poem ‘The Daffodils’. All of this, in the short space of a morning, after which we return to Windermere via Rydal Water and Ambleside with a look at the Little Bridge House.
For those catching a train we drop them at Windermere train station and we return everyone else to their hotel B & B etc. By far one of the best ‘value for money’ half day tours in the Lake District and if you are only in the Lake District for a short stay this definitely should not be missed.
