If you thought holiday time was over once the children were back at school, think again. We can't promise sub-tropical temperatures, but there's plenty going on around our B & B in Windermere to make the autumn a perfect time of year to visit.
Not only can it be quieter without the summer crowds, but the autumn colours are truly spectacular in this part of the world and it's a great time of year to be out and about, walking and cycling.
When you stay at our bed and breakfast Windermere is just on the doorstep, and, for a small town, it punches well above its weight.
For example, there are regular lunchtime concerts locally where you can enjoy a feast of light music played on a 1927 Wurlitzer Organ.
Another nostalgic option on November 1 is a showing of the 1925 classic Phantom of the Opera, with musical accompaniment from the Wurlitzer Organ.
If that doesn't appeal, there are also informal "walk and talk" sessions focused on edible mushrooms, which take place in Windermere's gorgeous deciduous woodland. You could find yourself learning more about safely identifying, collecting and cooking all kinds of fungi.
Not only that, but there's an arts season of drama, film and music on at the Old Laundry Theatre until December, and an arts and crafts show of The Glasgow Style 1890-1930. This runs at The Arts and Crafts House, Bowness, until New Year's Eve.
So whether you're looking for a Lake District cycle friendly hotel in Windermere this autumn, or need a base for endless cultural excursions, the Hawksmoor Lakeland Guest House is perfectly placed.
