2016 is coming to a close now but after an exceptional, beautiful Indian summer the Lakes and all around them are surrounded by the beautiful warm browns of woods in autumn.
With such a long summer, an autumn holiday in the Lake District is a challenge to fit in – but it’s the best way to experience the season at its most beautiful.
Those warm autumnal colours mesh perfectly with the crisp cool air over the lake, and there may be no sights more stunning than those you see while walking through the woods beside Lake Windermere at this time of year.
A family can use the River Cottage in the Glenburn Hotel grounds as a beautiful self-catering base of operations to come back to at the end of each day out and about on and around Windermere or further afield at one of these great local attractions.
Or, if you prefer, one of our beautiful rooms makes a cosy retreat from which to enjoy watching the weather through the windows or to curl up in after an active day – and then, after a refreshing spa bath, you can visit our restaurant for a delicious, warm, and filling meal to provide fuel for the next day’s adventure.
It won’t be long until winter’s properly here, accompanied by the lighting of the Christmas lights in Windermere, but until then you have a chance to squeeze in a weekend of beautiful autumn sights, sounds, and experiences for you, your loved one, your family, and even friends.
