“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Enjoy a boat trip along the river and see the beautiful area of the Lakes District. This is really a beautiful area of England to explore and learn about. You will think it is beautiful like we have.

“Fantastic area to visit”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Had a week in the Lake District staying at Bowness. Lovely town and also visited Ambleside, Coniston, Grasmere, Kendal, Keswick. All were very nice with Grasmere and Keswick being our favourites.

Great area if you like walking or cycling and the outdoors. Usually go abroad and first summer holiday in UK for many years, really enjoyed it and would go back again.

Reviewed July 1, 2014

I've travelled all over in the past but nothing beats the Lake District scenery. Lake Windermere and the surrounding countryside is absolutely stunning. I recommend you visit.

“Stunning Sceenery”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We were so lucky with the weather, sunny and warm. We got a ticket and took the steam train up to the lake, then a 'free4dom of the lake' ticket', allowing us to hop on/hop off. Stopped at the fish and chip shop at Bowness for lunch, very nice piece of haddock. The boats were nice and clean, but very basic. The parking at the railway station was the cheapest in the area, otherwise parking is expensive.
