Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Muncaster Castle, Ravenglass CA18 1RQ England

After the train ride we travel south along the coast and make our way to historic Muncaster Castle where entrance to the castle grounds is free.This is the jewel in the crown of Western Lakeland. It’s location, above the River Esk affords stunning views of the valley and Sca Fell.Here we stop for lunch and enjoy the fabulous gardens. Indeed John Ruskin decribed the scene as “the gatewayto heaven” The World Owl Trust is here and there is the opportunity to view some of the rarest and most exotic species of owls. Most afternoons on the castle lawns the owls and other birds of prey are displayed in flight and the work of the trust is explained.

We take our lunch here in Creeping Kate's Cafe in the old stable yard.

If you wish to enter the castle itself then you will see furniture of great antiquity and collections of rare porcelain and silver and the loveliest tapestries. Be careful here the tapestry room is haunted and some people say they can sense an “eerie presence” so do not go alone!!!

Our return back to Windermere takes us over Corney Fell with views of the Irish Sea and if clear the Isle of Man. We end our tour with a comfort stop and a stroll along the northern shores of Coniston Water. A Magical end to an enthralling day.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
