September, October and into November are excellent times to get away for a short break or holiday before the winter finally sets in. And well, Cumbria and the Lake District is quite beautiful at this time of year and still an absolute pleasure to visit.
We may be finally experiencing the back end of the year after such a super September but the Lake District is awash with colour even on a dull day at the moment with the most beautiful oranges, yellows, reds and burnt sienna hues coming from the trees and bracken. Despite the stunning, openness of the Lake District, the other thing this region does so well is cosy.
From cosy cafes to country pubs, quaint B&B’s to self catering retreats with open fires and snugs, the nature of the way of life and properties in the Lake District and Cumbria is autumn and winter heaven. Better still, it’s the time to book and enjoy a great value break too.
A great location to head for, Windermere. A busy and vibrant location at time of the year, the autumn is an excellent time to visit with plenty to see and do. With everything on the doorstep from Lake Windermere just down the road, attractions and a cinema to shops and cafes galore in Windermere Village.
The newly refurbished Windermere Park Bed & Breakfast is a place to look out for to stay. A fine example of Windermere architecture both inside and out, Windermere Park is elegant, has off road parking, a lovely breakfast room and a choice of rooms including a four poster and the Oscar Wilde Suite.
