It is almost 10 pm as I write this post. Looking out of the lounge windows, I can see a sky, still blue, albeit darkish. The evenings are getting so much lighter now as Summer draws near. For visitors to the Lake District, our light evenings are a blessing indeed: there is more time to roam this lovely National Park and to absorb its magnificent beauty.
Most visitors coming to the Lakes enjoy driving around Lakeland’s little and large country roads, stopping now and again to explore tiny villages or visit historic homes, gardens, and other attractions.
Other visitors find our lighter evenings conducive to a more mundane mode of transport, that is, Shank’s pony. Often, these visitors may be found wandering beautiful wooded countryside, contentedly taking in the tranquility of these lovely settings.
Yet others will find the challenge of climbing mountains hard to resist, especially when there is so much daylight to light them along the way. Reaching high fell plateaus and summits must surely be an achievement indeed!
Lighter Cumbrian evenings also provide more opportunities for taking advantage of Lakeland’s water-based activities, such as boating and fishing.
At Blenheim Lodge, we can book our guests with a local skipper who takes people out for dinner, lunch, and cheese and wine tours. Theoretically, if the skies are clear, guests can go out for dinner or cheese and wine sails in bright daylight, and return some hours later to Blenheim Lodge, having also gazed at a great canopy of stars overhead on their return cruise.
Blenheim Lodge is known for the stunning Lake and fell views which may be seen from our bedrooms.
With more daylight hours, it means that guests can enjoy these views for the greater part of the day even now in mid-Spring, and especially when Summer comes upon us. Come share our lighter Cumbrian evenings while they last!
