Summer’s here! Come join us for a Summer treat in the Lakes. It’s beautiful; it’s gorgeous; it’s amazing; it’s all that is incredible with respect to pulchritudinous landscapes and wonderful things to see and do. And within Bowness on Windermere itself, where our Bed and Breakfast, Blenheim Lodge, is situated, we have so much of this fantastic beauty for you to enjoy on our doorstep . . . indeed, quite literally from your own B&B room!

I wanted to share some of the loveliness of the Lake District that is closest to us at Blenheim Lodge in this post, and what better way is there to do this than through photographs? Take a look below.
