The Lake District is famous for its beauty. Amazing rural landscapes of fells and lakes jostle with quaint hamlet scenes. In the busier villages and towns of the Lake District, visitors take time out to take coffee al fresco and window shop or buy from interesting independent stores and outlets. Plentiful eateries, some housed in typical Lakeland stone buildings, provide opportunities to try local fare.
This weekend, why not come to the Lake District for a relaxing getaway and see some of these beautiful spots for yourself? Imagine romantic promenades along pretty lake shores. Board a ferry and cruise one of Lakeland’s picturesque lakes. Take gentle walks to visit stunning waterfalls. Or trek any one or more of the Lake District’s myriad trails. If you are feeling up to it, why not hike up a Wainwright?
Of course, one of the best ways to get an overview of the Lakes is to hop onto a Lake District tour bus. Local guides know the area inside out and are able to tell you lots about the history of the Lakes, peppered with lively anecdotes. If you wish, you could also do lots of sightseeing on your own. Many guests drive; others take advantage of the Explorer tickets available on the buses that ply the A591 between the South and North Lakes. The more intrepid will even cycle!
Blenheim Lodge has late availability this weekend for Bed and Breakfast. We have rooms for double, twin and triple occupancy. Why not stay with us in our central but quiet location in Bowness-on-Windermere and make our guest house in the Lake District National Park a base for getting about to enjoy this area’s charms? We would be so pleased to welcome you!
