7 DAYS | 17th September 2017
Just 28 miles off the southwest tip of Britain, lies the small, beautiful archipelago of the Isles of Scilly … a charismatic destination with unique charm and warmth: with mile after mile of white sandy beaches, acres of natural landscape to explore, a rich and fascinating history. The skies seem bigger here, the horizons further away, and the landscape broader. It all feels quite intimate and oldfashioned, as if you’ve stumbled upon an idyllic film set from a bygone era. Let the concerns of everyday life drift away on the falling tide. This is the stuff that holiday memories are made of: beautiful surroundings, a gentler pace of life, quiet conversation and nature’s soundtrack.
Beatrix Potter & The Lakes
Staying at The Netherwood Hotel
5 DAYS | 25th September 2017
The Lake District is often referred to as England’s greatest beauty spot with its craggy hill tops, mountain tarns, glittering lakes and stunning countryside. Awash with things to do, many people visit for the region’s literary connections; among the many writers who found inspiration here are William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and of course Beatrix Potter, a lifelong lover of the Lakes.
