Has anyone noticed how bright the evenings are now? Somehow, Winter seems to have passed rather quickly into Spring. I do not know whether I am imagining things or not, but I truly think that there were longer and darker evenings and nights in Winters past than this one of 2012/2013.
Looking out of our windows and watching the sun setting over beautiful Lake Windermere and the fells is possibly one of the best ways of relaxing. We had a few walkers to stay with us during the weekend, and they thoroughly enjoyed drinking their mugs of tea whilst gazing out on the calm waters of Windermere as the lake disappeared under the setting sun. What a fantastic way to absorb the peace and quiet of a soporific evening where one can literally hear a pin drop!
Lighter evenings mean that there is more time to explore the Lake District before the gloaming. For some, twilight is a magical time, when scenery and objects take on a backlit glow that throw them into sharp relief so that the world around seems to come even more alive. It is that special moment between darkness and light. Capture an image at the precise moment, and there should be some fantastical photos to admire.
Longer daylight hours in the Lake District is a boon for walkers and climbers alike. For anglers, this too is a wonderful gift as most fishing waters are open from dawn to dusk. Guests at Blenheim Lodge are able to borrow our two fishing permits that cover a number of lakes in the area; and anyone using them can fish until the natural light disappears.
As Winter gives way to Spring, the Lake District is basking under sunny skies and windless days. It is the perfect time for all kinds of activities, such as cruising the lakes of this wondrous National Park; horse riding along its valleys, fells and beaches; visiting historic homes and gardens; working as Keeper of the Day at the zoo; hiking along well-loved paths and climbing peaks; and so on. There is indeed much to enjoy out of doors especially when the weather cooperates.
For visitors who want to take advantage of the lighter evenings and want a nice, clean, and comfortable place to stay, we at Blenheim Lodge are most happy to oblige. Why not take a peek at our rooms on our website, and book B&B accommodation with us? We offer a friendly home from home where peace and comfort reigns, and from which beautiful views of Lake Windermere and mountains abound. Only five minutes’ walk downhill is the bustling town centre of Bowness, with all its amenities and attractions. Enjoy the best of both worlds: take advantage of the quiet tranquillity we offer at Blenheim Lodge whilst staying close to town; but avoid the noise of main road traffic, crowds and late night revellers.
Blenheim Lodge . . . panoramic Lake views, peace and tranquillity, nestled against acres of beautiful fields and woodlands, in the heart of the English Lake District National Park.’
