There’s never a bad time for a stay here at the Windermere Suites, but there are some choice times of year to come for a luxury hotel stay – and Spring is one of them! So book now and take some time out for relaxation and discovery in the Lake District.
Our hotel is situated in the heart of Windermere making it the perfect location for our guests to go and explore. Being so close to lake Windermere, a boat trip is perfect: Windermere Lake Cruises have fabulous options from boat tours to hiring your own boat for an hour or two while you witness the beauty of the lakes from on the water.
Top tip: From the far side of the lake you can take in the panoramic views from Claife Viewing Station and visit the café. Enjoy the colours as the Rhododendrons flower along the lake shore.
A common misconception is that all the great walks in the Lake District require hiking boots and hours of effort and are on a par with a Hellvelyn. We’re here to give you an insider’s secret – spectacular views are easily available via much less strenuous routes! Try a “cheat walk” such as Gummer’s How – with easy parking and a well-marked path. The view over several lakes and fells will easily outweigh the effort taken.
Top tip: The summit of Gummer’s How looks right up the length of the Lake and is perfect for Instagram shots (your friends will think you’re seriously impressive hikers).
The Lake District is famed for its gorgeous display of bluebells, and May is the perfect time to view them in the woodland between Grasmere and Rydal Water. Why not venture a little further into The Lakes to Rannerdale where the bluebells flower in the open fields, turning the valley floor a spectacular hue of purpley-blue?
Top tip: Finish the day with locally sourced food at the spectacular Michelin star restaurant: Simon Rogan’s L’Enclume is known for it’s unique and creative dishes. This is an ideal itinerary for a proposal day too – the romance of wild bluebells combines perfectly with a truly memorable dining experience in a beautiful village!
