Here at the Hawksmoor Guest House, we offer luxury B & B accommodation in the heart of Windermere. We are perfectly positioned for some action-packed, family-friendly cycle and outdoor activity routes, and here are three of our favorite Days Out In The Lake District:
Windermere's west shore
The secret western shore of lake Windermere offers some ideal family cycle routes, around 4 km long. You can access it via the Windermere Car Ferry, and you can also visit the stunning Wray Castle. There are traffic-free bridleways and some routes were recently improved with locally sourced stone.
Grizedale Forest Park
Grizedale Forest Park is a wonderful day out, full of adventure and excitement, with a visitor centre, cafe, and miles of well marked and maintained cycle routes. There is also the Go Ape playground for even the most energetic of little monkeys! Grizedale Forest offers mountain bike orienteering too, for a more challenging activity, with grades ranging from beginners' trails to more difficult uphill climbs.
Whinlatter Forest Park
If wildlife is your family's thing, then visit the Whinlatter Forest Park. This beautiful mountain forest offers the chance to view the magnificent Lake District Wildlife. You will also find plenty of walking and cycle routes, a visitor centre and a cafe.
After a packed day, come back and relax at the Hawksmoor; kick off your muddy boots and store your bike in our secure cycle shed and boot room, then enjoy a wonderful night's sleep before doing it all again the day after!
