A Day in the Lake District

26 April 2016

The Lake District has stunning views of its mountains and lakes and, depending on the time of day, you will be able to see how they catch the light and come alive with warm oranges or light yellows.Summer is the best time of the year to see the Lake District at its most verdant.

The meadows and hedgerows are in full bloomand on bright, sunny days you can see the surrounding areas for miles. This world-renowned cultural location is popular with visitors, as it holds a special place in the heart of England.


The wonderful fresh air will invigorate you and help you start your day in the best possible way. Watching the sun rise on the horizon is a stunning experience; the deep orange colours and the pink hues in the sky make for memories that will last you a lifetime.

In Windermere you will find the largest lake in all of England. Its beautiful surroundings are the perfect place for water-related activities like canoeing. You can take a ferry around the lake and have a closer view of the stunning Victorian mansions in Ambleside.


Loughrigg Fell is one of the smallest Wainwright Fells but it provides some of the most panoramic views over the central area of the Lake District. It’s a fairly easy path to walk, as the fell has gentle contours. If you have children, this is a good walk for a tranquil afternoon.

A picnic is the perfect reason for a resting stop to enjoy the lovely weather. You will be able to see the gorgeous landscape from Loughrigg Fell, and fully appreciate the green scenery that the Lake District offers.

Night time is perfect for a cup of tea in a local shop, where you can rest and relax from a possibly tiring, but wonderful day. The cosy cafes in the Lake District have a wide variety of local delicacies you can try, while warming up against the chill of the night.

Grasmere is a village not too far from Loughrigg Fell, located in the centre of the Lake District. It’s named after the adjacent lake and it’s associated with the Lake Poets; William Wordsworth described it as the loveliest place ever found.
