Ten Lakes Spectacular tour covers Ten Lakes, three mountain passes and an extended lake cruise from the mountains to moorland on Ullswater - "Queen of the English Lakes", a beautiful waterfall, Castlerigg Stone Circle and the ancient township of Keswick for lunch. Certainly the most comprehensive, popular and satisfying tour in the Lake District, visiting central, north, north-west and north-east parts of Cumbria with so many stops for photographs and short walks.

Your short break also includes the Beatrix Potter's Lakeland and Wordsworth Tour. A visit to Hilltop farm is the highlight of this tour but lovers of Beatrix Potter know that her world extended throughout the Lake District, from Sawrey, Hawkshead, Tarn Hows and Yewdale in the south to Derwentwater and Newlands in the north and the head of the Troutbeck Valley in the east.

The tour also visits location used in the making of the "Miss Potter" movie staring Rene Zellweger. Likewise William Wordsworth traveled extensively throughout the Lake District and this tour is especially designed to visit particular places that can be associated with the areas two most famous literary figures. All will be explained during this wonderful 14 lakes and tarns tour with stops for photographs and short walks.
