Well, we are in late summer now and going into early autumn. I can hardly believe it, but I think the weather is actually better now than it was during parts of the so called high summer months this year. At home, Hubby and I now have two boys who are in college and university. I am, of course, anxious that they will work hard and do well in their tertiary education and can only pray – and nag, if I have the mind to!
Meanwhile, at the guest house, we are now entering the third quarter of our year and hope to attract people to stay at our B&B who want to experience autumn in the Lakes. At present, the flora in the Lakes is still very full with foliage and flowering plants are continuing to boast their crowning glories. However, we expect soon to see fall hues on the trees. When this happens, there will be a spectacular panorama of oranges, yellows, reds, greens, purples, and browns to be seen across Lake Windermere from our lake-facing bedrooms windows.
Besides being an excellent base for guests who revel in exploring stunning scenic locations, Blenheim Lodge is also an attractive accommodation option for individuals, couples, friends and families who are looking for a friendly and peaceful B&B to stay. Our hilltop position at the end of a cul-de-sac means that guests will not be disturbed by regular passing traffic or passers-by. Meanwhile the woods and fields at the back of the house offer healthful walking opportunities, with marked footpaths to a number of viewpoints, some of which command 360-degree views.
We have late availability this weekend as well as during the rest of September and the coming autumn months. Prices are keen, with a lake-view en-suite double room starting at £90 per night for bed and breakfast based on double occupancy. En-suite single rooms, also with lake views, are priced at £60 per night for bed and breakfast. We also have special offers available, which you can read about on our website: www.blenheim-lodge.com/special_offers.php. Our offers are updated throughout the year, so do keep the link and take a look whenever you feel you need a reason for visiting the Lakes!
For guests wanting a romantic break this weekend, we have a couple of rooms available, including a four-poster room boasting panoramic Lake Windermere views. Or go for a pretty room with a carved Louis XV bed and bergere daybed and views of the woodlands behind our house. Breathe in the fresh country air and see if you can spot the cows currently residing in the field. I saw one sitting amongst the trees yesterday, looking very sweet and docile.
Remember that if you are celebrating a special occasion and require help with planning something to surprise the lucky individual or individuals, do feel free to ask us for assistance. We are here to help and will do so if we possibly can. Do you want to order a birthday cake, flowers, chocolates, or champagne? Or would you like help with dinner reservations at local restaurants? Or perhaps you would like to book an organised fishing trip with tuition? Only ask; and if we can help make your stay more memorable, we will!
