Pretty Spring crocuses light up an otherwise dull background of sere leaves.

Look around you, and you will see daffodils pushing up the earth, crocuses colouring the ground, and snowdrops glinting white against Winter’s last gasp. Spring is soon arriving! Days are lengthening and there is even more daylight now to marvel at and enjoy our beautiful land, the Lake District National Park.

Belle Isle single room
Belle Isle is one of our en-suite single rooms with pretty lake and fell views from its windows.

Take advantage of our late availability March Offer. Get 10% off our Winter rates, and put it towards coffee, tea and cakes  . . . and ice creams – yes, it has been warm enough – betwixt all those activities and sightseeing. B&B tariffs, when taking advantage of our -10% March Offer, are our lowest ever over an approximate decade (because we never increase prices by more than 50 pence to a pound each year; and often make no increases at all). A single en-suite room with Lake views, for example is only £57.50 per night including breakfast when someone stays any three or more nights midweek. En-suite double rooms start at £82.80 per night B&B based on the same deal.

This is the view of Lake and fells taken from Belle Isle, our en-suite single room at Blenheim Lodge. You can see the exterior wall encasing the window on the right hand side of the photo. This view can be seen from practically all of our lake-facing bedrooms, with a number of bedrooms boasting even greater overarching views!

So what is there to see and do here during late Winter and early Spring? Well, how about enjoying ferry rides and hopping on and off at various piers to explore those areas? One could take the Windermere ferries, or board one in Ullswater or Coniston. Guests staying with us and sailing aboard a Windermere ferry are able to use our 10% Ferry Ticket Discount Offer on certain trips. Or how about taking in some visitor attractions? These, of course, can range from visiting beautiful gardens, such as Holehird to making tracks for Brantwood, John Ruskin’s former home. Alternatively, be different and perhaps engage in some unusual activities, such as sheep herding aka ‘One Man and His Dog’?

Herd & Stay
Learn to herd sheep with a sheepdog. Guests staying with and booking through us will receive a discounted rate for this fun and unusual activity.

Spring is coming and soon will be fully sprung! Come and enjoy all this loveliness in the Lakes and watch it burgeon into those bright fresh colours of a Lakeland Spring. And, remember, do take advantage of our -10% March Offer!

Daffodils brighten the entrance steps to our front door at Blenheim Lodge Guest House.
