AUTUMN BREAKS IN THE LAKES

Book from a selection of Autumn Breaks in the Lakes with Lakelovers online today.

Looking forward to fall? Autumn is a time of stillness and reflection in the Lake District and a season that many of our holidaymakers look forward to. From a 2-week cottage holiday during the quiet of school term time, an October half term escape or a romantic long weekend, an autumn break in the Lake District promises relaxation for all.

Autumn Activities

Activities turn to harvest and fruitfulness as summer leaves the Lake District and we welcome autumn, and there’s a bounty of events to include in your Autumn break itinerary. Foraging is popular at this time of year, and we’d recommend Grizedale Forest as mushroom season flourishes.

October is deer rutting season and one of the best places to glimpse the spectacular male deer’s as they lock antlers is the Kentmere Valley. In the north lakes, Whinlatter Forest on Bassenthwaite Lake is a red squirrel reserve and a great place to stay for autumn. A taste test during a tour at the nearby award-winning Lakes Distillery will warm tummies too.

In the south lakes, Blackwell The Arts & Crafts House host a stunning Autumnal Craft Fair and Cartmel Food Market (held every 3rd Friday of the month) has a wealth of autumn offerings over October and November.

Enjoy glorious autumn displays at Brantwood garden & Estate, Sizergh Hall & Gardens, Holker Hall Estate, Tarn Hows and Grasmere’s White Moss Woods.

Join us here on a journey through walks and more events in the South Lakes to enjoy over autumn –  WHAT’S ON IN THE SOUTH LAKES THIS AUTUMN.

Choose a Lake District cottage near Windermere, Derwentwater, Coniston or another favourite lake so you can walk straight from your cottage door to peaceful waters’ edge. Rise early to catch the brilliance of an autumn sunrise over Ullswater, with lake mists lifting or watch the autumn sun setting on Windermere in a blaze of colour.

 

Autumn Weather Watch

Brilliant and bright as the autumn colours can be, this is the Lake District and yes, the weather is variable, so holidaymakers are advised to pack for all weather. The chances are you may enjoy an evening stroll to a local pub or firework display when the temperature will drop, so pack a hat, scarf and gloves as well as warm winter coat, waterproofs and all-terrain boots for a stomp on the fells.

So your autumn adventure can continue regardless of the weather, plan some in-door alternatives. Top attractions in the Lake District for this autumn include; The World of Peter Rabbit, Brockhole on Windermere, Lakes Aquarium, Lakeside to Haverthwaite Railway, the Ruskin Museum, Hill Top, Dove Cottage & The Wordsworth Museum, Theatre by the Lake and Zeffirellis.

Of course, over Halloween there’s spooky fun and scares aplenty across the region. Muncaster Castle, Brockhole on Windermere and Wray Castle put on great family-friendly Halloween events. If you’re heading to the Lakes for Bonfire Night, as well as the large events at the likes of Lowther Castle, Cartmel Racecourse, Kendal Castle, Hayes Garden Centre Ambleside, Windermere RUFC and the huge display at Swinside Inn,  the village firework displays at Hawkshead and Coniston are special too.

An Autumn Cottage Break

Autumn offers holidaymakers a relaxing respite between the hype of summer holidays and festive Christmas breaks. Whether it is because the expectations of an autumn break are less or due to the cocooning effect of the changing autumn landscape, but autumn breaks are deeply relaxing.

Think luxury hot chocolates, spicy pumpkin soup, conker hunting and blackberry apple pie.

Step into your holiday cottage and fall into the comfort and ease of smart entertainment systems, designer fixtures and fittings, private parking and gardens and luxury bedroom and bathroom suites.

Our luxury cottages are the ultimate resting place for a relaxing autumn break. On-site leisure facilities including pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and games room; stylish log burners, luxury hot tubs and heated patios are the ultimate way to unwind this autumn. Look out for the VisitEngland gold award badge when browsing our autumn collection below.

For all shapes and sizes, from four-legged pooches to bum-shuffling babies, there’s so much delight to be had from playing in autumn leaves. We offer short breaks that may suit the family as well as dog friendly cottages (marked with a cute paw print and dog friendly cottages can welcome up to 2 pets – detail is specified on property page).

Don’t just look forward to autumn, fall for it. Book your Autumn break in the Lakes on 015394 88855 or enquiries@lakelovers.co.uk
