On this full day tour, we will discover some of the remote valleys on the eastern side of Lake District. From Windermere we overpass the Kirkstone Pass, the highest pass in the Lakes, thereby making our way to Ullswater for a 40 minute cruise to Howtown. Back on the bus we make a short climb with magnificent views into Martindale where we visit the 800 year old St Martin’s Church with its even older yew tree. We also take a look at the much younger church of St Peter’s that is well-known for its stained glass windows. From here we drive along the seashore of Ullswater to Pooley Bridge where you will have time for lunch in the village.

In the afternoon we check out Lowther Castle, earlier home to the Earls of Lonsdale, and look at the ongoing restoration work. Following the peaceful Lowther valley we head south into Mardale where we see Haweswater, the dam and the mountains beyond.

Time to conclude the tour with a short walk to the 12th century Shap Abbey and exploring its impressive remains. Bid adieu to the beautiful landscape and drive back to Windermere.
