I can hardly believe it: time really does fly! Not so long ago, I wrote in my previous post about Takuyah’s return visit to us from Japan during the first May Bank Holiday long weekend. Now, I am writing about the coming Late May Bank Holiday long weekend, which begins on Friday, 23 May 2014.
I do not know what sort of weather the weekend will bring, but if the temperatures over the last week are an indicator, then visitors to the Lake District should enjoy some lovely sunshine. And if anyone is looking for last minute breaks in the heart of the beautiful Lake District National Park, then please do consider a stay in one of our lovely rooms with their fabulous Lake and mountain views. You will be assured of a warm welcome at our 4-star guest house.
Imagine exploring the Lakes: sunlight glistering upon still waters; or silvery waterfalls catching the light as they cascade over steep drops into quick running becks that slip, silverfish-bright amongst mossy rocks and smoothened pebbles. Around you there are open vistas of big blue skies and tranquil lakes. Take a look at stands of lush greenery, carpets of wild flowers that gladden the eye, and towering fells that stand to attention, erect in their protection of this pulchritudinous 2292 square kilometres of scenic landmass.
Explore and discover our picturesque Lake District: breathe deep of the clear Lakeland air; listen to the silence, broken perhaps by birdsong. There is much to engage any visitor to the Lake District. Visit sleepy hamlets, quaint villages, and bustling characterful towns. Taste local brews and try local foods. Ride a gondola; climb a fell; walk The Poet’s Walk. Take in an indoor or outdoor attraction. Go shopping!
Activities abound for the adventurous and not so adventurous at heart: from mountain biking to ghyll scrambling and rock climbing; from four-wheel driving to horse riding on the fells. Perhaps go boating on one of the many lakes or walk a llama. Activities can be as strenuous as one likes, or as sedate as one prefers.
The Lake District National Park offers much and gives much. The beauty of this region is a feast for the eyes, a cornucopia of wonderful fresh produce and foods to the gourmet, and a retreat from the madding crowd to the exhausted. Like many great places, the Lake District delivers to every visitor just what each visitor demands of it. Look, and you will find!
For the visitor who wants a quiet relaxing break, Blenheim Lodge is an ideal choice for a peaceful 4-star retreat where guests can enjoy some tremendous views from their rooms. Our Bed and Breakfast combines the convenience of being a mere 5-minute walk from Bowness centre with all its many amenities, but is just far enough away at our fell top location from the noise of busy streets with its main road traffic, the hustle and bustle of numerous pedestrians, and late night revellers. Walkers will also enjoy the easy access from our front door to the open fell that is Brantfell.
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.’
