The spectacular scenery of the Lake District combined with its literary connections make this region one of our firm favourites. The beautiful landscapes inspired the poetry of Wordsworth and Coleridge yet is perhaps best known as the home of Beatrix Potter and her furry friends. The artists Turner, Ruskin and Burne-Jones all sought inspiration here too, and if their paintings are anything to go by, we'd say they're pretty good judges. Plenty of fresh air and a literary education - what could be better?

Our guide to holidays in The Lake District

Explore what is arguably England's most beautiful region. Enjoy a private ride on a Victorian steam yacht gondola for fabulous views over the tranquil lakes and enjoy a tasty bite to eat with fabulous dining across the region, from traditional inns to Michelin starred tasting menus.

Our drivers and guides know the best hikes for you to enjoy - including the famous 'coffin walk' where you end at the village of Grasmere to taste a sweet treat of gingerbread. Visit Wordsworth's home or take a tour of a private stately home with an amazing topiary garden and for VIPs, meet with the Lord and Lady of the manor for a private banquet.

Families will love vising Hawkshead, the sleepy village home to Beatrix Potter's gallery. Wander around the museum and see original items belonging to the author along with original artwork. Our top tip - make sure you walk to the local church for a fabulous viewpoint!

We can arrange hiking or cycling experiences, with or without guides as well as luxury hotels for a good night's sleep - we can recommend the ones with fabulous spas to rest weary legs after a day's hiking.
