Easter in the Lakes

The long Easter break is almost upon us, and if you've got little ones, then chances are you'll be looking for ways to fill the time. We know you love having them around over the holidays, but with all that energy it can be difficult to find enough activities to fill the days!

Fortunately, the UK is a fabulous place to spend an action-packed long weekend. The Lake District is one of the most breathtaking parts of the country and offers so many opportunities for outdoor adventures. Here's what we think you should get up to over the break.

On the water

With Windermere on your doorstep, there's really no excuse to not get your life jacket on and venture on to the water. From sailing to kayaking and windsurfing, there's something for everyone. Whether you're a total beginner or a seasoned pro, we definitely suggest you spend some time on the infamous Windermere.

Rock climbing

Climbing, particularly with such fantastic scenery, is great fun for all ages. Total Adventure [http://www.total-adventure.co.uk/activities/rock-climbing/] offer climbing sessions, as well as trickier walks that include scrambling.


The cycling routes on offer around Windermere are second to none. Cycle by the lake shore to Wray Castle or rent a bike and head along the Beatrix Potter trail towards the author's former home.

We think it's safe to say that after a day in the Lake District, the kids will be well and truly worn out! If you're looking for a Lake District B&B to act as your Easter base, then get in touch with the accommodating team at the Hawksmoor Hotel to book your stay.
