We travel through 72 miles of unspoilt countryside enjoying the breath-taking scenery. This journey is arguably the most scenic of any English railway as we pass through 14 tunnels and over 20 viaducts including the Ribblehead Viaduct which has 24 arches that stand 104 feet above the moor. We arrive in Carlisle where we will have free time for lunch before we continue our journey to our next hotel in Dumfries.

Visit Dumfries House. Set in 2,000 acres, the stunning estate and 18th-Century Dumfries House is a beautiful stately home with an outstanding collection of 18th Century Furniture, including fine examples of the work of Thomas Chippendale. There is a Coach House Café on site for refreshments to be purchased. During our visit we have time to explore the Estate grounds before taking part in a guided 60-minute tour of the House. This tour presents the highlights of the collection, the history of the house and its owners. After the tour we sit down to afternoon tea.
