Hortus Arts and Crafts in the Lake District

19 June 2023

4 days from £2,795pp

Discover the splendour of the English Lake District, one-time home to William Wordsworth, the Lakeland Poets and Beatrix Potter, on this tour of Arts & Crafts houses and gardens.
  • Overlook Coniston Water from the home of John Ruskin
  • Visit High Moss, as featured in “Small Country Houses”
  • Learn about the preservation of the Lake District
  • View secluded gardens from the lakeside on a private launch

In the early 20th century, the rush of the Manchester mill owners to build weekend homes resulted in a rich mix of Arts & Crafts houses and gardens on the shores of the Cumbrian Lakes, where they combined cutting edge architecture and ornate craft traditions with the dramatic beauty of the English Lake District. Look out on England’s highest mountains as they plunge into deep lakes and watch the shimmer of light on the waters as you enjoy our carefully curated tour.

Please note:
This tour will start at 10:15 at the hotel for those wishing to drive, with a 11:15 pick-up at Lancaster railway station.
