It’s easy to see why so many celebrated literary figures chose to call the Lake District home - this part of the country is simply spectacular. By far the UK’s most popular national park, the Lake District was given UNESCO World Heritage Status in 2017 and its spellbinding landscape of rolling mountains and sprawling lakes is sure to inspire even the most uncreative soul!

Taking a leaf from the books of the area’s most famous residents, we will embark upon a scenic, story-filled tour, paying visits to Beatrix Potter’s 17th century farmhouse known as Hill Top and the nearby art gallery, William Wordsworth’s idyllic Dove Cottage and artist and critic John Ruskin’s Brantwood. Further highlights include the ‘Arts and Crafts’ house of Blackwell and the splendid gardens of Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall, which at this time of year will be donning their autumn mantles.


Tour highlights:

  • The couch upon which Wordsworth lay ‘in vacant or in pensive mood’ at Dove Cottage
  • John Ruskin’s ‘Living Laboratory’ at Brantwood
  • Arts & Crafts style and stunning lake views at Blackwell
  • Beatrix Potter’s original paintings and sketches
  • Autumn colours in the gardens of Sizergh and Levens Hall
