Visit Cumbria this Spring, where you can enjoy a cottage break in Windermere, in the heart of the beautiful countryside. As well as all the regular attractions and local points of interest, there are many things about the Lake District in Springtime that make it pretty special.
Stately Homes and Castles
While the likes of Muncaster Castle, Lowther Castle and Levens Hall are popular all year round, they truly come into their own during the spring. After all, the gardeners and groundsman work hard behind the scenes to create spectacular displays for everyone that visits.
In fact, some of the stately homes and castles in the Lake District are still fully operational. With family residencies and corporate hospitality, going hand in hand with tourist season. However, with the change in season you can witness the gardens coming into bloom. With your own hot tub as part of a luxurious cottage break in the Lake District, you will get a glimpse of how the other half live.
Daffodils, Bluebells and Lambs
Among the flower beds, both within the aforementioned gardens and growing wild are two clear signs spring is upon us. That is when the vivid yellow bunches of daffodils come into being, along with the very colour that give bluebells their name.
Then there’s the new born lambs. Whether you’re driving back to your spa cottage in Windermere or catching the train across Cumbria, keep your eyes peeled for baby Herdwick sheep joining the world.
Perfect weather for walks
So while you may have the home comforts of a cottage break in the Lake District, there’s no reason not to head into the country. With an abundance of natural and wonderful scenery on your doorstep, there are a range of walking routes from Windermere.
The weather may be unpredictable, but the cooler air will help during those longer walks. The ground should be easy going too, although always take care underfoot. So while you may still need an extra layer of clothing, you will be rewarded with amazing views across the fells and lakes.
Spring Events in the Lake District
February can be a peaceful time in the Lakes, but come spring a number of events in the Lake District are taking place. Whether it be the Keswick Jazz and Blues Festival, the Keswick Mountain Festival or events even closer to Lake Windermere.
There’s something for everyone in the Lake District this Spring, from touring season for well-known acts to smaller, annual events.
