Visiting the Western Lake District
While staying in Cumbria, how about visiting the Western Lake District? You can always park the car outside your Windermere Boutique Spa Suite, ready for a scenic drive to the Western Lake District.
Walking in the Western Lake District
Once you’ve arrived across the beautiful Cumbrian countryside, it’s time to leave the 4 wheels behind. The drive will be worth every minute, but it will soon be time to get out and stretch those legs.
There are a number of popular walks in the Western Lake District. While you’re soaking in your heated outdoor Windermere hot tub, start planning your route. Good points of reference are the writings of famous fell-walker Arthur Wainwright. In fact his book “Walks from the Ratty” focus on just that, walking in the Western Lake District.
The “Ratty” refers to the Steam Railway at Eskdale. While the train ride itself may be the chance to take some weight off your feet, Eskdale station also provides a central starting point. So why not enjoy walking in the Western Lake District, as you take in the sights. Muncaster Fell and Blea Tarn are a couple of landmarks to look out for along the way.
Not only that, but you can also take in the history of Muncaster Castle with a short 1.5 mile walk from Ravenglass Station. Alternatively how about views out into the Irish Sea, as you stroll along the beaches of Black Combe.
Cycle the Eskdale Trail
If you’re visiting the Western Lake District and thinking of going for a bike ride, you’re in for a treat. Although it may be a bit of a gruelling ride from the comforts of your Windermere Boutique Spa Suite.
Once you have arrived in the Western Lake District, however, cycle the Eskdale Trail. The route rides from Dalegarth to Ravenglass. It will be an 8-mile journey that you won’t forget. Plus once back in your Windermere Boutique Spa Suite, you can reap the benefits of your private hot tub.
Relax in the Western Lake District
Maybe you’re not planning to do anything in the Lake District other than sitting back and enjoy your surroundings. Well, as with many parts of the Lake District there are plenty of wonderful bars and restaurants awaiting your custom.
If however, you’d rather stay away from the crowds and head to the beach, well there’s time for that too. Weather permitting stop off at Silecroft Beach, enjoy a picnic or even an ice-cream. This is a particularly relaxing place to visit in the Western Lake District out of season.
Stay in a Windermere Boutique Spa Suite
With plenty of parking at the Windermere Spa Hotel, you can take the car and reach the Western Lake District in just over an hour. Not only that, but the drive will be an adventure in itself. The beautiful Lake District countryside and amazing views.
