This week has seen us at Blenheim Lodge welcoming a good number of overseas guests. And all of them have been ever so enchanted by the beauty of the Lakes. For some guests, this has included gazing out the windows from their rooms or settling comfortably into a couple of chairs set out on our porch and contemplating stunning views of Lake Windermere from their vantage points.
Blenheim Lodge is situated on a hilltop and we enjoy some rather amazing views of Lake Windermere and the fells. Our peaceful location, only a 5-minute walk to the hustle and bustle of Bowness town centre and the pier, is conducive to a relaxing break away from the hectic busyness of daily life. Very often, we get guests who come to stay with us because they want to indulge in a little peace and quiet, away from the madding crowd, yet be within a stone’s throw of all local amenities and attractions. Our home is just perfect for this!
Walkers love the Lakes for the numerous fells that they can tackle. Brantfell is the fell that Blenheim Lodge is built on, and our guest house is the one closest to The Dales Way footpath that traverses Brantfell. Indeed, for Dales Way walkers, our guest house is an ideal location for a comfortable break! One of our bedrooms, named after the Dales Way, and called The Dalesway, overlooks the fields and woodlands of Brantfell from which guests may even catch a glimpse of The Dales Way Walk.
There are so many bodies of water in the Lake District, with the deepest one being Wastwater.
The largest is Windermere, at 10.5 miles.
Tarn Hows, one of the prettiest tarns in the Lake District, actually comprises 3 small bodies of water.
Meanwhile, Thirlmere comprises two lakes and is a reservoir, as also is Haweswater. Nonetheless, these manmade lakes do blend very well into the natural Lakeland landscape.
I hope that these photos of Lakeland’s beautiful waters will whet your appetite for visiting the Lakes. And if you are looking for a place to stay, why not come and stay at Blenheim Lodge? You are sure to find a warm welcome here!
