Lakes Getaways – Holidays in the English Lake District

Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway.

At Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway  you can travel back in time when you climb aboard the train. A distant memory of bygone years for some and new experience for others, it’s a unique day out for all.

Jump aboard the train at Haverthwaite Station. Enjoy views from your carriage up to Lakeside; the southern tip of Lake Windermere. Then if you fancy, combine the trip with a visit to The Lakes Aquarium or continue your journey aboard a Windermere Steamer to Bowness or Ambleside. The Station welcomes dogs and owners.

Ravenglass & Eskdale

The Ravenglass and Eskdale railway, starts at Ravenglass, the only coastal village in the UNESCO World Heritage site, Lake District National Park. You can travel across the estuary, through the hills, past seven request stops with a 1:40 gradient at times, en route to our final destination some seven miles up the line to Dalegarth for Boot Station. 

Dogs are welcome to travel on the railway (small charge applies) and are also welcome in some of our buildings.
