Love Autumn Love a break in Windermere

The change in season along with the change in colour of the landscape is in full Autumnal swing now.

Autumn is a simply stunning time of the year in the United Kingdom with the Lake District being one of the top locations to witness and take in the beauty that it brings.

But as Autumn comes so too does the cooler air and the more unsettled weather although some may say that is what the Lake District is like all year round! Maybe take a walk up Brant Fell and view Lake Windermere from above? Or Orrest Head, again a lovely little walk with views to die for across the Central Lakes and down Lake Windermere.

The Applegarth Villa Hotel & Restaurant has just the way to warm and brighten guests thi Autumn with a fantastic offer. Book any room or luxury hot tub suite for stays Sunday to Thursday throughout November and receive a free bottle of Prosecco. The hotel’s very popular and year round “Dinner on the Villa” offer will apply for two nights Sunday – Thursday too.

Whether it’s for walking, cycling, attractions, shopping or simply complete relaxation, Windermere makes an excellent choice for those seeking any or all of those requirements from a short break. The Lake District and especially the hot spots in the southern lakes such as Windermere are fully open and ready for guests. Being that but quieter than many other times of the year aids the feeling of relaxation but with the benefit of all the facilities still to enjoy.

The Indulgence Beauty Rooms located within the Damson Dene Hotel in the Lyth Valley have been recently refurbished and offer face & body treatments as well as massages, waxings and manicures. What is also great is the choice of Gentleman’s Treatments as men have finally realised what they’ve been missing out on all these years! The massages are particularly popular with both for male and female guests who have pushed themselves too far enjoying fell walking or the many other outdoor adventure activities in the Lake District.

Located in the beautiful Lyth Valley between Kendal and Bowness, the area offers a tranquil way to enjoy the Lake District and explore a very special region.

The love of the Lake District in Autumn

With Autumn’s late arrival in Cumbria and the Lake District, October is set to be the best time to visit to witness the magnificent colour change of the landscape. It’s starting to cool down but there is still plenty of daylight time. The landscape is turning from green to the fabulous Autumnal colours of burnt oranges, red and yellows and even the fells are joining in with bracken quickly turning to a burnt amber before the eyes.

For a night’s getaway or a weekend break, October is an excellent time, just before winter really kicks in and the clocks go back. And if all these reasons weren’t enough to visit this county alone, hotels are offering some fantastic October and November deals with the Newby Bridge Hotel being no exception.

In the area there is a whole host of things going on before Winter really arrives. Windermere Info lists comprehensively what is going on in and around England’s longest lake. There is everything from art fairs to lake cruises, music events, theatre performances and markets. And lets not forget the great outdoors with adventure and outdoor activities for the whole family, great for the upcoming half term week.

The Newby Bridge Hotel is always a hotel to look out for, for great midweek and off peak deals as well as their special 2 night Autumn offer. Newby Bridge itself located at the southern end of Lake Windermere is an excellent place to visit having lots of indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy. As we all know, things to do indoor are great to know on the doorstep! From the Lakes Aquarium to the new Cliffhanger Rooms, there’s something to do whatever the weather and whatever the age.
