Luxury Mercedes Coach

From £3,995 / Person
Hike the Dales and Fells of England's green and pleasant land

Explore the English counties that inspired Beatrix Potter and James Herriot.

The Romans introduced Potter’s Peter Rabbit, and Beatrix saved Herriot’s Herdwick sheep. The people, ancient farming methods and the sheer beauty of the Lake District make the region a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Suppose Beatrix Potter, author, farmer and conservationist, saved the Lake District in its current form. In that case, the Yorkshire Dales National Park is synonymous with the veterinary expertise of Herriot and his adventures on the green pastures of the Dales. We will also see the awesome UNESCO World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal.

Both counties are breathtakingly beautiful, with craggy ancient mountains, sublime sheets of water and undulating limestone landscapes carved by many ice ages. Expect to see Geological wonders, waterfalls, caves, thousands of miles of stone walls and a million sheep.

Price: £4,595 GBP for Single Occupancy.
Price: £3,995 GBP Per Person for Double Occupancy.
