With over half the year already gone, it’s time to start planning for a last minute August bank holiday weekend in Windermere.

Either way, as the nights start to close in it might be your last chance to make the most of an outdoor hot tub.
August Bank Holiday Weekend in Windermere, 2018
There are plenty of things to do this August bank holiday weekend in Windermere. As well as relaxing in an outdoor hot tub, make the most of your time in the Lakes while using your Windermere boutique cottage as a central base.
After all, you will only be a short walk away from Lake Windermere itself. As such a boat ride with Windermere Lake Cruises has to be on your to do list. You can take a scenic trip along the water, stopping off at nearby locations in order to enjoy the countryside.
Walks and hikes across the Cumbrian fells, or alternatively bring a bike with you and cycle along the waters edge. Other popular activities in Windermere include taking in a show at the Old Laundry Theatre, or visiting the World of Beatrix Potter.
As to where you can spend the evening, there’s the Flying Pig, the Crafty Baa, Brookside Inn and the Queens to name but a few. When it comes to dining out, then try Bodega for tapas or San Pietro’s Italian. If it’s music you’re after, Zeffirellis often have a jazz band playing while you eat or the Baha lounge also offer live entertainment.When it comes other activities to enjoy this August Bank Holiday weekend in Windermere, you can always explore the rest of the Lakes. Traditional games take place at the annual Grasmere Sports, including fell running and Cumberland wrestling.
If you fancy putting a bet on the horses, then Carmel Cup Day is on over the August bank holiday. Try your luck and you may soon be sipping the finest champagne back in your Windermere hot tub!
On the bank holiday Monday you could always venture over to nearby Keswick, for their very own country show. The Keswick Agriculture Show features everything you would expect, from sheep dog trials to horticultural and arts and craft stalls.
There’s a similar event in West Cumbria, with the Blackcombe Country Fair. While the home comforts of a Windermere Boutique Cottage may make you feel like a local, there’s a lot more to Cumbrian life than first expected.
