Tastes and Tales of the Lakes & Dales

5 Days Half Board by Coach

Combine spectacular sights, the magical tales of Beatrix Potter and local flavours of both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales on this tasty tour. We have included visits to Wensleydale Creamery, Grasmere - home of the Grasmere Gingerbread - and a visit to the World of Beatrix Potter – one of the Lakeland’s most famous inhabitants - bringing her many stories to life. And as an added bonus we have arranged for a selection of special dishes, particularly reminiscent of the Lakes and Dales region, to appear on the hotel menu throughout the week.
