The forecasters have been ceaselessly warning us of awful windy weather with torrential rain, but it has not been so bad over here in Bowness-on-Windermere, within the heart of the Lake District National Park. True, the road skirting Grasmere was rather flooded on Monday evening when Hubby drove it and could hardly tell between the A591 and the Lake where it had overflowed, but we have not experienced the same hazards where we live. On Tuesday, we took a day trip out past Ulverston to Barrow-in-Furness and found dry roads everywhere, except for a smattering of raindrops midway. Wednesday dawned bright and clear and remained so, and it looks good outside presently as I write.
So, if it has been the dire forecasts of malevolent weather that have been preventing you from visiting the Lakes, I hope this little local information will help to settle those nerves. At Blenheim Lodge, we are open as usual and can offer Late Availability discounts off our Winter rates. Stay 2 nights and receive 5% off our already low Winter rates. (Actually, it is odd to mention ‘Winter’ because the air is really quite balmy for this time of the year.)
Our January and February offer of 5% discount includes all weekends, except for Valentine’s Day weekend. However, if you were to extend a 2-night stay over Valentine’s Day weekend to 3 or more nights, we would offer an 8% discount of the 3rd and subsequent nights. This offer must be booked directly with us by telephone or email and cannot be combined with other money off promotions.
We have another late availability offer available for midweek breaks. Stay any 3 or more nights and receive 8% discount off our seasonal rates. We are running this midweek Bed and Breakfast deal until 13th April 2014. Again, this offer cannot be combined with other special offers.
Lastly, if you have some work holidays that you need to use up before the end of the financial year, we have a corking deal whereby you could save from £67 up to £150 off a 7-night B&B break. This offer is available year round, and excludes Valentine’s Day weekend and public holiday weekends. However, it can be applied pro rata to the dates surrounding these regular price dates based on a weekly stay, so that you can get the best benefit out of the offer. For instance, stay 7 nights including Valentine’s Day weekend. You get the benefit of the 7-night deal pro rata on the 5 nights outside the weekend, paying only for Valentine’s Day weekend at the regular tariff.
I hope this post has whetted your appetite for visiting the Lake District this Winter. We would love to welcome you to Blenheim Lodge, our AA 4-Star guest house in the heart of the Lake District National Park. The Lake District is beautiful in any season and we are sure you will enjoy it!
