Easter Holidays Breaks in the Lake District

Take a break this Easter in the Lakes with a Lakelovers cottage

Lake District Cottage Holidays in Easter

Easter is a great time to visit the Lake District to get away from it all and is sure to revitalise and uplift. The pastoral valleys are buzzing with new life and the mountains and lakes are fresh with adventure. Whether you’re looking for a last-minute Easter break in the Lakes or have long been planning a return visit, have a look at our hand-picked selection of Lake District Easter cottages available to book now and let the Easter hunt begin.

Spectacular Blooms

There is little that is as welcoming and as typically Spring-like than the cheery faces of brilliantly yellow daffodils and their heady scent lifts the spirit instantly. As does the intoxicating smell of bluebells and wild garlic, which cover the Lake District woodland at this time of year and is a spectacle not to be missed.

A Lake District woodland is a relaxing and rejuvenating place to be during Easter, where you can enjoy a celebration of new life and beginnings. One third of the UK’s bluebells are in Britain and the South Lake District has some particularly excellent spots. Other famous blossom displays not to be missed during an Easter break in the Lake District is the jaw-dropping ‘host of golden daffodils’ at Glencoyne Bay, which greeted William Wordsworth and his sister on a breezy Easter day in 1802, causing such rapture as to inspire one of his most famous poems, ‘Daffodils’.

Smallest Church

Over the Easter celebrations, flowers are brought inside as a symbol of optimism and it is a particularly good time of year to visit some of the UK’s most historically important churches located across the Lake District. You may even be offered a Hot Cross Bun!

The region has some of the oldest churches in the UK and they offer a warm welcome to visitors. Some particularly interesting one’s to visit include the tiny St. Olaf’s, at Wasdale Head, with wooden beams, said to have originated from Viking ships, or the busier St. Oswald’s church in Grasmere, where the gravestones of the Wordsworth family are well visited.

Counting Lambs

Skipping and bleating lambs is one of the most eagerly awaited signs of Spring’s arrival and no place is this more evident that in the pastoral valleys of the Lake District, which are a busy hive of farming activity at this time of year. The 400 acres between Little Langdale and Coniston, which was owned by Beatrix Potter, are a great place to get a flavour of lambing season in the Lake District. Little ones will enjoy having a go at newborn lamb bottle feeding at the all-weather petting farm Old Hall Farm, in Bouth, south Windermere.

Eggtastic Treats

On your Easter self-catering holiday in the Lake District, food is an important part, whether you dine in, or out. There’s nothing better than gathering family or friends around a large dining table to take time over a celebratory meal and drinks. Whether you fancy a laid-back open-plan kitchen and dinner, a traditional farmhouse table or perhaps a more formal dining setting, you’re sure to find something that you’ll like in our collection of Easter self-catering holiday cottages. We have a range of unique cottages equipped for entertaining, whatever your style.

At the centre of many celebrations is the Sunday roast and in the Lake District you will find the very best lamb around. Higginson’s in Grange-over-Sands, South Cumbria, is a highly-recommended butchers. They have a superb online home delivery service too, so wherever you’re staying in the Lake’s you can enjoy award-winning produce in your very own country home from home.

We’d recommend trying regional delicacy Herdwick Hogget, of which Yew Tree Farm, in Coniston and formerly owned by Beatrix Potter, is the best. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall say’s it is “the finest he has ever tasted”. Hogget, in case you’ve not tasted this delicious meat before, is younger than mutton, but older than lamb, and so is nice and tender yet full-flavoured.

Hot Cross Bunnies

Toasted hot cross buns with lots of butter and a fresh pot of coffee, al fresco on your own patio, enjoying the warming April sun or perhaps sharing a piece of fruity Simnel Cake and a pot of tea by the warmth of your wood burner and a game of charades. This is what an Easter break in the Lake District has in store. There are many excellent tea rooms in the Lake’s, perfect for idling away a lazy weekday morning during an Easter getaway. The Jumble Room in Grasmere is a particularly good café popular with foodies, whilst Wilf’s in Staveley, Windermere, is a mecca for cyclists.

The Lake District is home to some of the UK’s top family attractions, including The World of Beatrix Potter, Ulswater ‘Steamers’, GoApe and South Lakes Safari Zoo as well as lots of heritage attractions. They all offer superb school holiday activities, from den building to crafts and storytime, ideal for entertaining little ones and stopping little cute bunnies turning into hot cross bunnies!  However, you can’t beat some home baking, so why not try making Easter Nests with chocolate and shredded wheat and top with some chocolate eggs.

Hilly Egg Hunt

Once you’ve gobbled up your own delicious Easter Nests, take a hop, skip and a jump all over the Lake District in the North of England’s biggest Easter egg hunt. The Peter Rabbit Easter Egg hunt has over 100 limited-edition ceramic eggs to be found in this exciting digital adventure. Or, if you’ve got little ones or grandparents who may not fancy a leap and a bound around the 2,600 square mile Lake District-wide trail, then why not create your own treasure hunt in your holiday cottage garden.

Eggciting Wildlife

Lakelovers Lake District Easter cottages are hand-picked to put you in the heart of the finest scenery in the Lake District.  You’ll have rambles and adventures right from your doorstep. Perhaps you’ll choose a lakeshore apartment or maybe a mountainside bolthole is more your style. Either way, being so close to nature can leave you wanting more.

Head to the viewing platforms at Dodd Wood, Keswick, overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake, to catch sight of the very rare Osprey chicks. The Lake District Wildlife Park, Bassenthwaite, is now the only place in Cumbria where you’ll get to see the Northern Eurasian Lynx, which 300 years ago was indigenous to Cumbria. Muncaster Castle and Gardens, West Lake District, has a superb calendar of events, including their very own Hawk and Owl centre.

Country Eggscape

Candles lit, soothing music on, sinking into a tub of warm water looking out across uninterrupted views of a splendid mountain and lake landscape. For many, this is heaven on earth. When booking your Easter break with Lakelovers add an all-inclusive leisure pass on to your holiday, for exclusive prices to the region’s top luxury leisure facilities. Or, choose from our luxury collection and enjoy extra’s like your very own hot tub, sauna, pizza ovens and lakeside access. Our collection features many superbly renovated Lakeland properties, fitted with state-of-the-art kitchens and sumptuous designer bathrooms. You’ll find statement bathtubs, looking out over private views, bathrooms fitted with smart TVs and contemporary wet rooms. Traditional properties are cosy and beautifully maintained and all Lakelovers holidays include free towels and linen, leaving you with more packing space!

Fast Eggventures

Adrenalin and adventure come’s thick and fast in the Lake District, for those looking for it. There’s Via Ferrata at Honister State Mine and Tree Top nets in Grizedale Forest Park and Brockhole Lake District Visitor Centre, for those looking to challenge your head for heights. If you find peace when careering downhill, around hairpin bends, on some of the best mountain biking trails in the UK, head to Whinlatter Forest, the UK’s only real mountain forest. During Spring, mountainside rivers are full adding to the challenge of gorge scrambling and the rapids are a sure-fire workout for experienced canoeists.

3-5* Luxury

All Lakelovers holiday cottages are VisitEngland rated 3-5 stars, guaranteeing you a special holiday whatever you’re looking for. From the very best locations and most unique properties, to stunningly fitted out properties all delivered with the experience and finesse of the longest-serving Lake District holiday letting agency. Dogs, whether rescuing or a companion on the fells, are an important part of the Lakelovers family and so many of our properties welcome pets, plus pets are free with Lakelovers, so don’t forget your doggy chocolate treats too!

Holiday Traditions

New beginnings and traditions. The first ever mountain summited, and revisited years later. The place where a romantic gesture or question was made. The views you share with loved ones. The place for an annual reunion. Family memories that become traditions. Easter is a time of new beginnings. There are many traditions that start on an Easter holiday in the Lake District and we look forward to welcoming you on yours.
