Day Five: Friday, September 18 - Troutbeck and Elizabethan Town End Farm
Breakfast: In hotel dining room.

Morning: This morning you will enjoy a walk to Orrest Head and a visit to Holehird Gardens, home of the Lakeland Horticultural Society. Orrest Head is the subject of a chapter in Wainwright’s “The Outlying Fells of Lakeland” and was the first fell he climbed. He describes it as “Our first ascent in Lakeland, our first sight of mountains in tumultuous array across glittering waters, our awakening to beauty” and also as a “fitting final, too, to a life made happy by fellwandering”. On the walk you will follow lanes and winding woodland tracks, culminating in views of the stunning natural beauty of the Lake District. Holehird Gardens cover an impressive 17 acres above Windermere and are reputed to be among the finest in England. The gardens are unique in being maintained entirely by volunteers.

Lunch: At The Mortal Man pub in Troutbeck. An established traditional Lake District Inn since 1689, it resides over the wonderous panoramic views of Lakeland mountains that have captivated many great minds through the centuries. Originally a small ale house built by Isaac Cookson, the Mortal Man’s unusual name comes from a sign painted for the landlord at the time by a famous English painter called Julius Caesar Ibbetson.

Afternoon: Field trip to the village of Troutbeck. Troutbeck can be found between Windermere and Ambleside, just off the Kirkstone Pass. The village of Troutbeck is spread alongside a hillside which runs from Town End to Town Head. Troutbeck is a designated Conservation Area, with a number of buildings which date from the 17th to 19th Centuries. Some of the buildings have retained the original features such a mullioned windows, heavy cylindrical chimneys and a rare example of an exposed spinning gallery can be seen. The church and the former school can be found in the valley; rebuilt in the 18th Century it has an east window created in 1873 by William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones and Ford Madox Brown. Enjoy a guided walk of this lovely village, followed by an excursion to the Elizabethan Town Farm.
