As we eagerly await a further easing of lockdown, the Lake District in Summer this year is one we can’t wait to celebrate. Get ready to pack your sun cream and book a spa break at one of our three luxurious spa hotels and your own private hot tub suite.
Things to do in the Lake District
Come rain or shine, there’s always plenty of things to do in the Lake District. Whether that be taking a walk out into the countryside, relaxing under the sun at your hot tub suite or sheltering from the rain at nearby attractions.
After all, the chance to get away is something to relish whatever the weather. By booking a stay at our Aphrodites Spa Hotels, you’ll find yourself staying close to Lake Windermere. Here, guests can stroll down to the jetty for a romantic picnic or take a trip along the water.
Embracing the views as you board the Windermere Lake Cruises, maybe even dive straight in instead for some wild water swimming. As for those slightly more unpredictable days, there are local attractions such as Wray Castle, the Lakes Aquarium or a trip on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway.
What’s on in the Lake District this Summer?
It’s no surprise even at this late stage, several festivals and such like in the Lake District have been forced to cancel due to Covid-19. However, don’t let that put you off, as there are still plenty of things to do in the Lake District this summer.
Cartmel Horse Racing
With test events at Ascot proving successful, horse racing at Cartmel certainly hasn’t fallen at the last hurdle. In fact, both Summer Racing in July and the Cartmel Cup and Finale during August Bank Holiday are very much still in the running.
Taste Cumbria 2021
New for Summer 2021 is the Cockermouth Food Festival’s newest arrival. This time with a sister event taking place at the nearby location of Maryport. The Taste Cumbria event putting a particular focus on the flavours of the sea.
Lake District Summer Music
The international arts and music festival returns for the 1st week of August. Spread out over the course of 7 days, the Lake District Summer Music focuses on small-scale classical music. However, also includes the likes of organised walks and family-friendly story-time.
There’s still time to enjoy a number of summer shows in the Lake District this year. With the likes of the Cartmel Show, Coniston Country Fair and Westmorland Country Show are all currently going ahead as planned. Albeit with one or two additional measures in place to make social distancing run as smoothly as possible if need be.
