The Lake District & Yorkshire Dales

Enjoy a delightful Turkey & Tinsel break based in the Cumbrian town of Grange-Over-Sands, known as “the Gateway to the Lake District”. The advent of the Furness Railway transformed the once small fishing village into a very fashionable and popular Victorian/Edwardian resort set between the Lake District Fells and Morecambe Bay. Many wealthy merchants built their grand houses here and today some of these former private homes are now top quality hotels. Marvellous limestone buildings dominate this picturesque seaside town and its traffic-free promenade, ornamental gardens, duck pond and vantage points for watching the variety of sea birds are just some of its many attractions.


The Cumbria Grand Hotel was built in 1880 and is located just six miles from Lake Windermere. Set in 20 acres of private
gardens and woodlands over-looking Morecambe Bay, guests receive a warm welcome at this charming three star Victorian
hotel. Facilities include the Hazelwood restaurant, lounge, bar, snooker room with full size table whilst outside guests can
enjoy some delightful woodland walks.The hotel has two lifts and all the bedrooms have en-suite bathroom, satellite TV,
direct dial telephone and hospitality tray


Monday: Travel north to Grange-Over-Sands arriving at the hotel mid-afternoon. Settle into your room before enjoying a sherry reception followed by the evening meal and live entertainment.

Tuesday: A leisurely day today with a coach transfer into Grange-over-Sands this morning and an afternoon excursion via
Newby Bridge to Ulverston. Take time here to explore the cobbled streets, speciality shops or pop in for a coffee at one of the friendly cafes. Ulverston is the birthplace of Stan Laurel and is home to the world’s only Laurel and Hardy Museum! A Christmas dinner with all the trimmings will be served this evening followed by mince pies and coffee in the Jacobean Bar.

Wednesday: Today join the coach for a scenic tour travelling along the eastern shores of Lake Windermere and stopping in Bowness on Windermere. Later we continue to Ambleside and travel along the western shores of Coniston Water.

Thursday: A tour of the Yorkshire Dales takes us to visit the small market town of Kirby Lonsdale before we continue on via Ingleton to Skipton which is also a market town and which still retains its farming community atmosphere. We return via Settle, one of the most picturesque towns in Ribblesdale with its narrow streets and views of the 300ft Castleburg Crag which dominates the town. This evening a candle-lit dinner will be followed by bringing in the “New Year” with entertainment!

Friday: After a leisurely breakfast we bid farewell to the hotel and travel to Lancaster, an historic town with a daily market. St.Georges Quay and its Custom House on the River Lune is a reminder that Lancaster was once a busy port handling more cargo tonnage than Liverpool! We depart Lancaster at approx. 14.00hrs and continue homewards.
