Lake District Cottages and Short Breaks in May

Short Breaks in May

With two more bank holidays coming up, it’s the ideal time to book a last minute short break in May. So why not stay in a Lake District Cottage with hot tub, where you can also experience the benefits of the nearby Aphrodites Lodge.

With a range of beauty treatments available, you can book in for a full body massage or just a quick facial. The fun doesn’t stop there either, bring your swimming costume and dive into the pool or stay for a light lunch.

As for your Lake District Cottage, the spa comes to you. With an outdoor hot tub in your private garden and other benefits too. There’s even a pair of relaxation beds. So put on some meditation music, dim the lights and drift off for a while as you relax.

What to do in the Lake District in May

If you are planning a last minute break at a Lake District Cottage, then make the most of your cottage break in Windermere. After all, there are a wide range of things to do in the Lake District in May.

As always, Windermere and the surrounding areas are ideal for those long walks in the country. However, the 1st of May you can join an official “May Day Woodland Walk”. Giving you the chance to walk the fells with an official guide.

However, if you’re a bit more of a petrol head then there’s the Cumbria International Motor Show. It takes place at the Westmorland Country Showground near Kendal.

Short Breaks in May come with some exciting times for the Lake District too. There are several annual events that are now a major date on the Cumbrian calendar.

The Cumberland Sausage Festival is now in its 5th year, providing a time to celebrate one of Cumbria’s famous culinary delights.

Music lovers are catered for too, in the civilised Keswick Jazz & Blues Festival. Unlike the larger music festival in the Lake District, Kendal Calling, you can always stay in a Lake District Cottage instead of having to camp.

Then there’s the weekly food markets, as well as larger events such as Taste Ulverston. Where you can taste local produce, supporting farmers and independent traders.
