The Loveliest Spot for Lakeland Memories

Breathe deeper in magical Lakeland! Lakes, fells, countryside and stunning Cumbrian scenery, with time to pause and make your own discoveries in pretty Lake District towns along the way.

The Loveliest Spot for Lakeland Memories


The Castle Inn Hotel, set in the calming shadow of England’s highest fells

 and overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake,

 is our home from home during our magical Lake District SwanTour,

which takes in impressive scenery from a steamer

on beautiful Lake Ullswater and from the breathtaking Kirkstone Pass,

 the highest road in the Lakes.



We’ll enjoy the grandeur and magical beauty of Holker Hall and Gardens

 as well as Lake Coniston, Ambleside and superbly located Keswick

 on the shores of the Derwentwater,

with time to get acquainted with its charming shops,

galleries and all-important cafés.



Grasmere, described by Wordsworth who lived at the enchanting Dove Cottage,

 as the, “loveliest spot that man hath ever found”, will be another highlight.


Visit the Haverthwaite Steam Railway and travel in style through Leven Valley

 to Lake Windermere before taking a guided tour of the

award winning microbrewery  at the Watermill Inn,

 which serves up traditional real ales with a modern twist!
