Many of our luxury holiday cottages may be located in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, but sadly, we cannot guarantee that you won’t have a spot of rain while you are staying with us – especially as Autumn is upon us! As we seem to be having one of the wettest ‘summers’ ever, we thought it would be a good time to think of some things you can do on a rainy day! Hopefully, these suggestions will help you to keep the kids (and the grown-ups) entertained!
#1 – Try a Spot of Baking
On a rainy day, there’s nothing quite as enjoyable as tucking into something delicious with a hot cup of tea or some creamy hot chocolate. Why not try baking something yourselves? Cookies, brownies, cupcakes; the possibilities are endless!
#2 – Visit an Indoor Attraction
There are plenty of things to see and do even when it’s raining. Here are just a few of the best indoor attractions in and around the Lake District:
- The World of Beatrix Potter, Bowness – This is a fantastic place to take the kids, but it will bring back plenty of memories for lots of adults who read the stories of Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddleduck and Mrs Tiggywinkle when they were children!
- Hayes Garden World, Ambleside – As the largest garden centre in Cumbria, Hayes Garden World has plenty to see, and even often runs events throughout the year.
- The Armitt Museum, Ambleside – The museum tells the story of the Lake District, displaying the famous faces associated with the area.
#3 – Watch a Movie
Whether you decide to stay in a watch a movie in the comfort of your luxury holiday cottage or venture out to one of the local cinemas, a movie day is a great way to spend a rainy day.
#4 – Get Crafty
Getting stuck into some arts and crafts can help you and the kids forget about the bad weather outside. It’s a great idea to take supplies with you, ready for a rainy day so you are prepared if you need it.
#5 – Grab Your Waterproofs!
The great thing about the Lake District is that it is a beautiful area come rain or shine. As long as you have the appropriate clothing and footwear, you can still enjoy an active day in the Lakes!
