The Cumbria Grand Hotel

The Cumbria Grand Hotel was built in 1880 and is located just a short drive from the majestic Lake Windermere.  Set in 20 acres of private gardens and woodlands and overlooking Morecambe Bay, a warm welcome awaits.  The hotel boasts 124 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, TV, hairdryer, direct dial telephones and tea/coffee making facilities.

    DAY 1 – We travel northwards heading to the beautiful Lake District and our superb hotel, The Grand at Grange over Sands, arriving late afternoon.
    DAY 2 – Firstly we visit the town of Kendal an excellent shopping venue before taking a scenic drive to Pooley Bridge where we board an Ullswater Steamer for a cruise along the lake to Glenridding.  From here we take another scenic drive across Kirkstone Pass on our way to Grasmere for the afternoon.
    DAY 3 – Just a short drive to the Lakeland Motor Museum which houses a unique collection of exhibits to take you down memory lane.  We then board a train from nearby Haverthwaite to Lakeside to transfer to a boat for a relaxing cruise on Lake Windermere to Bowness where we spend a couple of hours before heading back to the hotel.
    DAY 4 – We visit the enchanting gardens of Muncaster Castle.  Your included entry ticket permits you to visit the Hawk & Owl centre, gardens and the maze.  The gardens offer breathtaking views across Scafell Pike and this beautiful area of the Lake District.  After time here we then board a train at Ravenglas for a beautiful scenic journey to Dalegarth where we have a short time before our return rail journey.
    DAY 5 – Such a shame after such an enthralling holiday we make our way home.
