Following a successful first visit to The Inn on the Lake in 2016, we are delighted to be returning to this stylish Hotel on Ullswater, surrounded by some of the finest views in the Lakes. While we may be a little late to enjoy the ‘hosts of golden daffodils’, this tour will show you some of the best scenery that Cumbria has to offer.
