There will be time here to explore the village, visit Sarah Nelson’s famous Ginger Bread Shop and the parish church of St. Oswald, where Wordsworth is buried, along with other members of his family. The coach will then continue past Thirlmere to Keswick where we will stop for lunch. You will have the opportunity to visit the Tea Pottery, Cumberland Pencil Museum, Derwentwater and Moot Hall, or explore the shops. The coach will then travel to Pooley Bridge where you can wander around and take in the scenery of the Matterdales and Helvelyn Ranges. The return journey will take you along Ullswater and over the Kirkstone Pass giving you unrivalled views across the southern Lake District.

Easter Sunday

Visit a local Church to join the morning service. Lunch will served at the hotel followed by afternoon activities

Easter Monday

Excursion to Skipton Castle, Market and Canal.

Skipton Castle is one of the most complete and well preserved medieval castles in England.

Fully roofed and with an enchanting early Tudor courtyard the stout towers of the gatehouse only hint at the splendour which is revealed as the visitor enters the castle grounds.

Facing the gatehouse there is a large tower, originally the watchtower - the most important feature of the castle's defences. To its left is the present entrance to the inner core of the stronghold. After the castle why not visit the market as Skipton Market is unique in the way it operates. Its history dates back to medieval times, when a Royal Charter from King John granted consent to 'The Lord of the Honour' of Skipton Castle to hold a fair on Skipton High Street.  If you don’t fancy the market then how about a stroll along the canal
