The train went only as far as Windemere and from there we took a double-deck bus--lovely ride actually. We were blessed with incredible weather the afternoon we arrived. As soon as were settled in our gorgeous hostel we set out for a hike around Lake Grasmere. The weather was just a good the next day when we set off on a day hike to Helm Tor. Outstanding. Definitely one of the best days of our visit to the UK.
