For that special Easter getaway, the Lake District offers an exciting playground for both adults and children. Spring is in full swing, with daffodils and blue bells in the fields and woods, the trees are green with leaves once more and the weather clement. It’s a lovely time of year to explore one of the most fantastic regions in the British Isles.
Mountains and forests
There are mountains and fells to climb, forests to conquer and lakes to play in, on and around. Picnic on a tranquil lake-shore or high craggy fell top. Take to the water in a hire boat, or perhaps sail leisurely on one of the larger lakes on the National Park’s famous steamboats.
See a waterfall that plunges sixty feet into a rock pool, a mountain ridge as sharp as knife, or drive along a high Winding Mountain pass that rivals any roller coaster ride. Try tree top trekking and forest mountain biking, or simply enjoy a leisurely walk around one of the smaller picturesque waters such as Tarn Hows or Blea Tarn.
Look out for Easter parades and Easter egg hunts for the children at some of the most popular visitor attractions. The National Trust organise at least four of these a year.
Dine out in style at our fine restaurants. From ancient oak beamed pubs, to chic wine bars and bistros, along with four Michelin awarded chef-owned establishments, we have them all in abundance to suit all tastes and budgets.
