Oxenholme, Lake District and Beatrix Potter
Admire the spectacular views of Lake Windermere, as you make your way through the narrow country lanes that criss-cross this scenic landscape. We stop for a photo opportunity on the shores of Esthwaite Water, where Beatrix Potter penned her famous stories. Next we visit Hill Top*, the home of Beatrix Potter and see the farm and gardens. We continue to the medieval village of Hawkshead with its quaint alleyways. On our way to Coniston Water where we will enjoy a lake cruise, we pass Tarn Hows, a picturesque beauty spot and cross the Yew Tree Valley keeping our eyes open for the local roe deer. On our return to Windermere we have a photo stop at Yew Tree Farm which was the setting for the film, Miss Potter.

Cream Tea at Lindeth Howe - Home of Beatrix Potter
We will have a delicious cream tea in this classic Lakeland country house hotel in Bowness set in 6 acres of its own private garden. It was the home of the Potter family and where Beatrix Potter stayed. Your guide will then escort you back to the train station for your return journey back to London leaving Oxenholme at 18:29 arriving at 21:24.
