Thousands of people visit the English Lake District because of its beautiful landscape of lakes and mountains. On a hot summer day, what better way is there to cool down than to head towards those self-same waters in hopes of catching lakeshore breezes or cooling sprays? Here are some lovely places to visit in the Lakes where one can enjoy both scenery and the activities to be found there, at the same time taking advantage of the chance to cool off during these hot summer days.
Fish the many waters of the Lake District. Blenheim Lodge offers two FREE fishing permits for the use of our guests on a first come first served basis.
Take advantage of an empty lake for an early morning row, and enjoy those soft summer breezes.
Catch the wind in your sails on Windermere, and thrill to the speeds you make!
Get wet and happy ghyll scrambling in Lakeland’s many becks and water courses.
Take gentle lakeside strolls as refreshing evening breezes cool the air.
Even our faithful friends need to cool down in this summer heat!
Tread shaded glades with pretty tinkly rills away from the heat and glare of bright sunlight.
Gaze upon spectacular waterfalls where droplets of spray cool down the surroundings.
Lastly, if you are brave enough, remove your footwear and wiggle your toes in that cold, cold water. I promise you that that part of your anatomy will certainly feel the chill!
