Top 7 reasons to visit the Lakes this Spring
It is official; Spring is here, which means beautiful daffodils, cute little lambs, blue skies and lighter evenings – don’t forget to put your clocks forward this Sunday, you’ll lose an hour in bed but we think it’s a fair swap to enjoy longer days. Take a look at the below 7 reasons to visit the Lakes this Spring.
See Spring in all its glory
Join us for the Ullswater Daff Fest, a series of events around the Ullswater Valley that enables everyone, both young and old, to delight in daffodils just as our local literary greats once did. (28th March – 17th April)
Get out on the lake
Step out of the Lodore Falls Hotel and on to the jetty, where you can catch the launch for a trip around Derwentwater. Or for the more adventurous, why not hire a rowing boat when you get to Keswick!
Go Herdwick spotting
At night stay in one the Herdwick rooms at the Inn on the Square, with our favourite sheep above the bed, then in the day go in search of them on the surrounding fells!
Exploring our 6 Lakes and 7 valleys around Keswick
The Skiddaw Hotel is located in the heart of Keswick, the perfect base to explore our lakes; Derwentwater, Bassenthwaite Lake, Buttermere, Crummock Water, Loweswater and Thirlmere and valleys; Borrowdale, Buttermere, Newlands, Derwent, St John’s in the Vale and back of Skiddaw.
May for Magnolia
Relax in the conservatory and gardens at the Borrowdale Hotel and view our magnificent 151 year old Magnolia tree blooming. It’s a sight not to be missed!
Enjoy some spectacular views
Located in the centre of Keswick, the Kings Arms is perfect for meeting up with friends and climbing Walla Crag or one of the nearby fells and mountains.
Visit a castle
Explore the historic ruins of Penrith Castle, the fantastic ruins of nearby Brougham Castle and the impressive Lowther Castle and Gardens all within 5 miles of the George Hotel.
