This is a wonderful time to visit the Lakes

April and early May 2013 is a great time to visit the Lakes.


Here are some of the reasons;

  • The children are all back in school, so the area is quiet.
  • People are feeling the economic pich so the area is quiet
  • Most overseas visitors don't come until the summer, so the area is quiet
  • It's Quiet- that's great for those of you who make it here!
  • The daffodils are still out because it's been so cold
  • The cherry blossom is coming along and will soon look great
  • The azaleas and rhododendrons are just waiting to burst into life

Then there are
  • Great walks from the door
  • Wordsworth's homes nearby to visit, along with Beatrix Potter's (Hill Top) and  John Ruskin's (Brantwood) homes
  • Many cultural events- festivals, theatre, music- there's always something going on
  • And of course the Lakes themselves- boat, sail, row or just admire.

I could go on- I often do......but let's just say- try to fit in a visit to the Lakes. Ideally, visit White Moss House ( owned by Wordsworth) for B & B or Brockstone Holiday Cottage perched above Rydal Water for self catering. We're offering special rates at both places- did I mention that's it's quiet here- that means you can grab a bargain!
