Great way to see the area (ten beautiful lakes) Would never be able to do it all by myself in such a short space of time.

I booked Mountain Goat Tours for a day trip around the Lakes District featuring Beatrix Potter's House. I arrived in Windermere from London on a cold and wet morning, was greeted by the tour guide and as I was the only traveller booked in on that day I had a private tour which was a great bonus. My guide for... More

A group of 6 have just spent a lovely break in Keswick. We are all pensioners, age range 65 to 83, so we needed a day trip to accommodate our aches and pains! Derek collected us promptly for our hotel, and we discussed with him what we wanted from our day out. We had a very informative trip in a... More

We took a tour called "Southern Lakes, Land of the Authors" and were disappointed. Although we did see Rydal Mount, where Wordsworth spent his later years, we barely saw Dove Cottage from the street. This is the main Wordsworth attraction, and the place where he wrote his most important poetry. We never even saw Beatrice Potter's house from afar, being... More

A good tour, many stops for us to take photos, great value and service, but wish we could have more time in Keswick during lunch because the market is fantastic there!

We asked our Hotel Reception to see if we could get on this trip at the last minute and they came up trumps. The mini-bus driver (Peter) greeted us like long lost friends and then proceeded to take us on a fantastic journey around the Lake District to places we would never have found on our own. We were given... More
