With Easter fast approaching the excitement is building for the first proper holiday of 2017 with spring in full swing.
Whether you have children or not, Easter is time many choose to have a holiday or a short break. The days are now gloriously long and the trees are starting to transform from twiggy sculptures to a luscious green. After a mild winter, the Lake District is looking vibrant and the famous daffodils are still out in an abundance.
Thankfully the Lake District is set and prepared and can provide the perfect solution to any last minute Easter holiday plans. There are indoor and outdoor adventures and attractions all fully open especially in the Windermere and Bowness area. Couple this with a choice of restaurants, bars and cafes, Windermere and Bowness are haunts for foodies too. In Windermere Village enjoy craft beers &ales at the Crafty Bar, head to The Pig for their famous black pudding scotch egg or Homeground Coffee for some seriously good food and coffee. Down to Bowness and you’ll find an array of world food restaurants including the excellent Thai, Mediterranean as well as inns for traditional and local dishes.
For culture then all the large houses and attractions are now fully open including Townend Historic House between Windermere ad Ambleside, Allan Bank and Dove Cottage in nearby Grasmere, Sizergh Castle towards Kendal and just south of Bowness, Blackwell – The Arts & Crafts House.
