We drive north to Cumbria for our 4-night stay.


Today we head for Longtown and drive along Liddesdale as we make our way to picturesque Kielder Water and Forest Park. We take a break at the visitor centre before continuing to Bellingham and Hexham, dominated by the Abbey overlooking the market square. This afternoon we return along the path of Hadrian's Wall which stretches some 76 miles from the Tyne to the Solway.


This morning we start our first train journey of the day in Carlisle. The line follows the Cumbrian coastline through Maryport and Whitehaven, with the stunning sea views staying with us to Ravenglass. Here we join the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway - L'al Ratty steam train from the coast to the foothills of England's highest mountains. Seven miles of steam in the Lake District National Park.


We travel into the Yorkshire Dales to Kirkby Lonsdale, where we find the weekly market in full swing. Then we travel on past the immense Ribblehead Viaduct, through charming Horton-in-Ribblesdale to Settle.
In the afternoon we take in the most spectacular train journey on a main line railway in the whole of England - the famous Settle to Carlisle line. Towering viaducts, bridges, long deep tunnels and lovingly kept station gardens all help to make this one of the best loved lines in the country. We travel along the whole line through majestic scenery to Carlisle.


After breakfast we leave and begin our homeward journey.
