The first signs of Spring are a warm welcome, wherever you are in the world. As the cold, winter frost disappears and the first daffodils rear their heads, it truly feels like a time for new beginnings. For a Spring getaway, there’s no better place than the Lake District, and there are four wonderful reasons why you should ‘spring’ to the Lakes during this beautiful season.
1. The World in Bloom
Spring brings with it the emergence of new life, new flowers, new blossoms. In the Lake District, you are so emerged in nature that you will experience all of this wonder, with breathtaking scenery and wildlife at every turn. Experience a burst of colour as vibrant yellow daffodils, beautiful bluebells and lush greens are emphasised by the soft Spring sun.
2. Enjoy Longer Days
With the lighter evenings rolling in you can enjoy longer days during the Spring. This means more time for gentle strolls, adventurous hikes, relaxing in pub gardens and visiting quaint village shops. When the sun eventually does die down, you’ll be sure to witness glorious sunsets the cast the Lakes into a memorising glow that you will never forget.
3. Delicious Seasonal Food
The Lake District offers many fantastic restaurants and luxury pubs for visitors. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat and plenty come with the perfect view to accompany you. Chefs in the area are proud to use local, seasonal produce, so you can be sure to enjoy freshly cooked meals with seasonal flavours cooked to the highest standards.
4. Take to the Lake
If you’re visiting the Lakes you may wish to actually take to the waters. Visit Bowness Bay Marina, where you can rent a boat and spend a day exploring the scenery from a new perspective. Just don’t forget to stop for ice cream! A perfect Springtime activity.
