Begin Spring in the Lake District

Spring is just around the corner and we’re ready to have some wonderful adventures courtesy of mother-nature. Like you, we are well and truly ready to see those cliche flower buds blooming, lambs leaping, and plenty of sunshine beaming across the Lakeland Fells.

Kicking off the season, the Spring Flower Show will be in full bloom on the 14th March! Opening up at Kirkbie Kendal School, whether you’re a gardener, a florist, or just love plants, you’ll discover rare and exotic leafy friends among the stalls. Nine specialist nurseries will be present, showcasing carefully nurtured plants and flowers which will be judged by a panel before the show opens.

As well as uncovering exotic plants there will be a flurry of locally grown flowers and fauna. An excellent opportunity for visitors and locals alike, entry is only £3 and all funds raised through the various food and drinks stalls will help support the Kirkbie Kendal School PTA.

Mother-nature blesses our area with such beauty, but there’s one Mother who truly deserves celebration...this Mother’s Day (22nd March) spoil the one person who helped you bloom by booking a special gift with Castle Green.

This Mother’s Day there are three very different ways for you to celebrate:

  • Three course meal in Alexander’s
  • Gin and Afternoon Tea in the Greenhouse Restaurant with entertainment by pianist Fred Binley
  • Relaxing treatment in The Green Rooms Spa.

Whatever your Mother’s taste, treat her this Mother’s Day. Book your table by calling 01539 734000.

For something to keep the children entertained, celebrate the Spring Equinox with the National Trust at Sizergh Castle. Beginning 19th March, they’re rolling out plenty of family friendly activities that encourage kids to explore nature.

This includes a guided walk of Sizergh Fell, a 1.5 mile trek where you’ll witness incredible views over Morecambe Bay, uncover important archaeological sites, and experience the thriving life littering Sizergh Fell. For younger children, Sizergh is allowing visitors to join their garden team in feeding the chickens and getting them settled for the evening.

Whatever you do this Spring, do it in the Lake District with Castle Green. Take advantage of our Super Sunday offer and treat your Mother to a truly luxurious evening. Enjoy overnight accommodation, access to our pool, steamroom, and gym, a 3 course dinner in the Castle Green Restaurant of your choosing and a delicious Westmorland breakfast.
