Mistletoe & Markets (based at Grange-over-Sands)





4 DAYS FROM £249


The beautiful Southern Lake District is an area of outstanding natural beauty and home to Scafell Pike (England’s highest mountain) and Wastwater (its deepest lake). Set between the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay the charming Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands offers one of the mildest climates in the North of England – an ideal base from which to enjoy some of the area’s festive Christmas Markets.


Our festively themed ‘Mistletoe and Markets’ break includes a welcome glass of bubbly on arrival at the hotel and three evenings of entertainment.


Our base in Grange-over-Sands is once again the comfortable CUMBRIA GRAND HOTEL which is set in 25 acres of gardens and woodland with many rooms enjoying panoramic views over Morecambe Bay and beyond to the Yorkshire Dales. The hotel dates back to Victorian times and features a restaurant, lounge bar with open fire, tennis courts, snooker table and large ballroom. All of the en suite bedrooms feature tv, hairdryer, telephone and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.




Departing Newark mid morning, we principally utilise the motorway system to travel northwards making an extended break in Skipton for lunch/sightseeing before continuing so to our base at Grange-over-Sands.

Saturday 5th December
Full day tour via Bowness-on-Windermere to the pretty village of Hawkshead for its annual Christmas Fair*. The ancient streets are filled with stalls selling food, crafts, and other gifts and, along with a lantern parade and street performances from circus acts, there is a mini beer festival in the village’s pubs! We return via a visit to the Lakeland Motor Museum where there will be time to browse some of the 30,000 transport related artefacts, local Cumbrian history and period shopping displays before an afternoon cup of tea/coffee and festive mince pie in their picturesque riverside café.

Sunday 6th December
Visit to the Keswick Victorian Fair* and a fantastic opportunity to combine some Christmas shopping with support for local charities.

Traders and other workers will be dressed in Victorian costume, and visitors
are invited to do the same!
