Fine foods and festivitiesthree of our favourite adult activities for a winter weekend in Windermere

The Lake District offers a vast array of activities for families and couples alike. While it is a great place to bring the kids, sometimes we all need a little bit of downtime, too.

So, if it's a bit of R&R you’re after, here are some of our top attractions for a couples retreat in the lakes:

1. Oxley’s Day Spa at Ambleside

Close to your base at the Hawksmoor Guest House is the nearby village of Ambleside overlooking the beautiful Lake Windermere. The popular Oxley’s Day Spa offers bespoke packages which appeal to both men and women. With full day packages offering great value for money, the site includes an outdoor hot tub for those brave enough to venture outside. The half day packages provide the ideal way to relax after a morning of fell walking or bike riding in the lakes.

2. The Brewery Arts Centre

A visit to the Brewery Arts Centre is a great way to end a day of exploring the beautiful nearby town of Kendal. The playhouse site boasts a wonderful atmosphere, converted from the old Vaux Brewery in 1972. Shows range from a vast array of comedy and music to theatre, dance and cinema, with something for everyone.

3. Low Sizergh Barn, Farm Shop, Tea Room and Craft Gallery

The perfect attraction for any budding foodies among you, we find our guests love the Low Sizergh as the ideal pitstop on their way home from the Hawksmoor Guest House. The tea room serves organic and locally sourced food and drink and the farm shop gives you the opportunity to pick up a few of the Lake District's local delicacies to take home with you.
