We stop for a photo opportunity on the shores of Esthwaite Water, where Beatrix Potter penned her famous stories. Next we visit Hill Top*, the home of Beatrix Potter and see the farm and gardens. We continue to the medieval village of Hawkshead with its quaint alleyways. On our way to Coniston Water where we will enjoy a lake cruise, we pass Tarn Hows, a picturesque beauty spot and cross the Yew Tree Valley keeping our eyes open for the local roe deer.
