Half term is creeping up upon us all but what an excuse and time to visit the Lake District and in particular Windermere.
Everyone has their fingers crossed for a good weather forecast so if you’re thinking of visiting and staying over or just taking a day trip in and around Windermere, Bowness and Lake Windermere then there is plenty to see and do and even if it’s a tad damp.
Brockhole and the Lake District Visitor Centre of course has some great activities planned for the whole family as usual including Winter Wildlife Survival Trail. Full of adventure, face painting, outdoor adventures and storytelling and Treetop Treks also on the same site. Brockhole is equally as good fun indoors or out so great whatever the weather.
Beatrix Potter, another great love of children and families of all ages. Enjoy Easter “Tea with Peter Rabbit” at the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction on Saturday 18th February and Saturday 25th. Cakes and sandwiches supplied along with stories told by “Beatrix Potter” and the chance to explore the World of Beatrix Potter attraction.
And let’s not forget the activity for all ages, abilities and that can be enjoyed for hour or a full day, a Lake District walk. Tips on walking routes and points of interest are always available by the knowledgeable staff at the hotels and B&B’s in and around Lake Windermere. Gummers How is a definite where the short, sharp climb rewards walkers with a stunning view of England’s longest lake.
From places for afternoon, a light lunch through to Sunday carvery’s and evening meals, you’ll lever go hungry in the Lake District and around the Windermere are with a huge choice of places to dine.
Being February and the chance of some wet and cold weather, the hotels around Lake Windermere are the ideal places to stay in. Everything under one roof, many with restaurants as well as bars and some having leisure facilities too. One such recommendation, the Newby Bridge Hotel at the southern end of Lake Windermere and still with views down the lake.
