10 Alternative Things to do this Easter in Windermere

If you’ve booked our Windermere Boutique Cottage or are checking into the Aphrodite’s Lodge main hotel, you may still be after some holiday ideas. We’ve suggested 10 Alternative Things to do this Easter in Windermere.

Windermere Lake Cruises

The largest body of water in the Lake District is only a stone’s throw away from your spa retreat, putting you in an ideal location. You can take a gentle stroll down to the water, before sitting back and taking in the scenery.

Lake District Walks

If you’re after something a little more energetic then there are plenty of walking routes and hiking trails. They range from short walks from Coniston Waters, to challenging climbs across the fells and hills of Cumbria. Join a pre-arranged walking tour or download an app online.

Visit Peter Rabbit

The World of Beatrix Potter attraction in Bowness-on-Windermere is popular all year round. Particularly over the Easter period with the huge Easter Egg Hunt on the 4th April. That still gives you the actual bank holiday weekend to stop off and meet the fluffy bunny or maybe a bit of afternoon tea.

Join an Easter egg hunt

We lead on to all things chocolate. In particular Cadbury’s, who bring their nationwide Easter egg hunt to several locations in the Lakes. If you don’t fancy challenging other chocolate lovers, you can always arrange your own at the Windermere Boutique Cottage. Take a soak in your private hot tub and enjoy a taste of luxury.

Brockhole on Windermere

If you are looking for things to keep the little ones entertained, then there are lots of activities available at Brockhole on Windermere. Everything from face painting to a trek across the hilltops.

Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway

You can get away from it all with a ticket for the steam railway. Board your train at Windermere for a scenic journey along the coast. Take a look out the window as the countryside passes you by.

Lakeland Motor Museum

It’s always good to have a back-up plan in case the weather takes a turn for the worse. At the Lakeland Motor Museum in Backbarrow, there’s a huge collection of classic cars, vans and motorbikes.

Book a table for dinner

In the evening don’t forget to book a table for dinner. The restaurant at Aphrodite’s is available to anyone staying at the main hotel, spa retreats or Windermere cottage.

Enjoy beauty and holistic treatments

Even when you choose the boutique cottage, you still get full use of the hotel spa facilities. Treat yourself to a massage or one of the many beauty treatments available.

Stay in!

Alternatively you may not even want to leave the comfort of your own room. Relax in your pa suite and hot tub or settle down in the cinema room with your favourite movie.

If you haven’t decided on what to do this Easter, why not book a boutique cottage in Windermere, with your own hot tub and private garden.
