Like a lot of other people, we decided not to tackle Hardknott Pass etc. ourselves and booked a last minute tour. We got Rob as our driver and wow, what a great experience. For one thing, he's been driving these roads all his life and just made the whole thing worry-free, even on the passes. He had lots of interesting information about everything from the distinctive 'belted' cattle we saw to the Roman history of the place. We stopped at Muncaster Castle, somewhere we probably wouldn't have been aware of on our own, and had a lovely time, especially during the Birds of Prey show. We made plenty of stops to take pictures and to drink in the spectacular views. And as others have said, my husband and I could just sit back and enjoy instead of worrying about the challenging drive.
