It is the perfect time for a quick break in the Lake District or perhaps, even a full week away.
There are some tempting deals to be found at hotels in the Lake District at the moment especially during October and November and even including half term. Not only are the leaves on the trees in full Autumnal amazingness now but the shorter days are now perfect for sitting in front of a real log fire in a hotel bar.
Getting away at this time of year whether for a long weekend or a week holiday, really sets you up for the Winter and of course, Christmas. Time to relax, a chance to unwind and take in the scenery of the Lake District in all its glory. The ability to still walk all day whilst it being cool enough to appreciate a real log fire in one of the traditional Lake District inns.
Food wise, well the Lake District is a fully packed larder at this time of year. Game is plentiful and is found on many menus across the county from pigeon to venison and partridge. Wild mushrooms a perfect partner for game can also be found as well as damsons and autumn Lakeland lamb. Real ales from local breweries are getting darker with more notes of coffee and chocolate and make the ideal aperitif to a game casserole or Cumbrian Tatie Pot!
Onto where to stay and Lake Windermere has it all and the southern tip so easy to access from the M6 motorway, good whatever the weather. All year long enjoy cruises up and down the lake and attractions and adventure on the doorstep. The Newby Bridge Lake Windermere Hotel for accommodation is worth looking out for.
