Private sightseeing tour of the Lake District
A guided 6 hour tour just £300*
After departing from Windermere Railway Station, our 6 hour guided sightseeing tour will visit the following places in the Lake District:
A drive through Bowness-on-Windermere with some fantastic photo opportunities of stunning Lake District scenery along the way. We will make stops at Adelaide Hill Viewpoint, Gummers How and the viewpoint near Brantfell.
We then make our way to Ambleside, where we will make a brief stop at Waterhead, at the head of Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in England.
Rydal Water is one of the smallest lakes in the Lake District. You will have time to enjoy a visit to Rydal Falls or make your way up the western paths to the spectacular Rydal Cave.
William Wordsworth called Grasmere "The loveliest spot that man hath found" and he lived here at Dove Cottage from 1799 to 1808. This is a beautiful location with peaceful lakeside walks and a historic 13th century church. Grasmere is home to the famous Gingerbread shop.
A spectacular drive through the Langdales takes us to one of the main highlights of the valley for many visitors. Blea Tarn is situated at the head of the Little Langdale valley, in the heart of wild Lakeland, and with the Langdale Pikes as a backdrop.
Passing by Coniston Water we head to Tarn Hows, a very picturesque beauty spot between Coniston and Hawkshead.
This olde worlde village with its narrow cobbled streets and 17th century architecture is an ancient township that has flourished since Norse times. There is also a good selection of tourist shops, cafes and pubs

"Out of sheer luck, we found David available for a private tour on very short notice. The Lake district is a vast place and you do need a knowledgable and obliging guide to really get an idea on how truly great this region is. David Brook is all that and more. You'll get to see the best views , the secret waterfalls and inside stories of the place from a true local of the Lake District."
