I wrote a post on my other Blog recently regarding the upcoming Early May Bank Holiday Weekend with links to things to see and do during this period. As usual, various organisations have planned events on top of the usual ongoing attractions and activities. Some of these attractions are linked to historic figures such as Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, whilst others offer fun and informative activities which will enable enthusiastic lovers of the Lakes to understand and enjoy this scenic environment more fully and intimately. There are, of course, just plain fun things to wander into, such as the Cumbria Life Sausage Festival.
The Lakes will be wide open as usual for visitors to explore. Drive, cycle, row, climb, cruise, walk, run: I am sure I have not exhausted the myriad ways in which one can explore the Lake District National Park.
Then, there are the more relaxed ways to enjoy this gorgeous area. Locate a quiet scenic spot where you can soak in the surrounding peace and tranquility as you listen to the call of birds and the shush of whispering leaves. Take a picnic with you and relish a lip-smacking repast on one of the many lake shores or fells whilst listening to the gentle splash of water or marvelling at the tremendous views that surround you.
The amazing scenery of the Lake District National Park is dotted with market towns, picturesque villages and tiny hamlets. Many boast eateries that serve deliciously prepared local produce. How about treating yourself to some of the best produce in England on a plate? Just because it is a Bank Holiday here, it does not mean that places will be closed. On the contrary, the Lake District is a great place for visitors because it thrives on tourism and everything will be open as usual.
Our Bowness Bed and Breakfast will also be open as usual during the May Bank Holiday long weekend. Indeed, Blenheim Lodge is generally open year-round except for a few days around Christmas. As with many other Lakeland towns and villages, Bowness-on-Windermere will of course be open as usual, including all amenities and attractions. And, of course, the Lake District National Park itself is never closed.
Springtime is a wonderful time to visit the Lakes. More often than not, it is warm without being too hot and it is nice to see new life budding in the flora and fauna that surround us. The clocks of course have already sprung forward so there is plenty of daylight to explore and discover even more of our Lakeland countryside. Actually, at Blenheim Lodge, the countryside is literally on our doorstep, whilst Bowness town centre is no more than a 5-minute walk from our door.
