Tarn Hows

Autumn is beautiful in the English Lake District. In fact, it is probably my favourite season of the year, closely followed by Winter. Are you an Autumn lover? Do you enjoy the whoosh of warm/cool breezes brushing against your cheeks? Do Autumn colours make you go “Wow!”? Shall we, together, number some of the reasons why we love Autumn in the English Lake District?

Reasons for loving Autumn in the English Lake District

  1. Colours, colours, colours! The amazing kaleidoscope of Autumn reds, golds, yellows, browns, oranges and evergreens greet walkers and sightseers alike with cheerful warmth despite the onset of Winter to come.
  2. Walks in scrunchy-leaved woodlands; hikes up scenic fells; lakes and tarns dressed in Autumn glory; rushing rivers wending their way past the intrepid explorer, their powerful watercourses perhaps enhanced by cascading waterfalls loud in decibels: absorb, if you can, all that glory of Nature!
  3. Warm spaces for soothing cold fingertips around welcoming mugs of hot tea, coffee . . . or SOUP! Try a local cafe or friendly pub for heartwarming Cumbrian grub and that delicious slice of cake for dessert. Treat yourself!
  4. Shop for Christmas! There are still many independent shops in the English Lake District, where you might find that unique something for someone special.
  5. Explore, explore, explore! The Lake District National Park has been voted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is more to see than meets the eye. (At Blenheim Lodge, we can help arrange tours to many amazing places to visit with pick up and drop off at our B&B if you prefer not to drive.)

It is so easy to get about from our B&B’s central location in Bowness on Windermere. One of the places we frequent is Rydal Water – only a 20-minute ride from Blenheim Lodge.
