Get Outside this Spring

Spring in the Lake District is a truly magical time. With our unique flora flourishing, lambs leaping, and the sun glistening off Windermere Lake, you’ll see beauty everywhere you turn. So, why not make the most of this Spring when you visit the Lake District; conquer the highest mountains, traverse the deepest lakes, and really experience what the county of Cumbria has to offer.

Home to the Kendal Mint Cake, which accompanied Sir Edmund Hilary during his first successful ascent of Everest, Kendal is a winding town of culture and heritage. Based in the South of the Lake District, it’s the perfect town for a family holiday or for some time for two. And, a self-guided tour is the perfect way to discover the history of this beautiful town.

Follow a downloadable PDF for a 2.5 miles heritage walk, with an optional treasure hunt that aims to uncover the diverse culture, significant people and extraordinary events that influence Kendal to this day. As the tour is self-guided, you can explore at your own pace. Plan a pit-stop in town, grab a coffee to go, or pack a picnic and trek up to the ruins of Kendal Castle. Our reception team are on hand to pick out other must-see spots, hidden gems, and local loves.

Visiting over the Easter weekend? Hop into Sizergh Castle for the Cabury’s Easter Egg Hunt! Families can explore the gardens at Sizergh, discover Springtime flora, and uncover chocolatey treats along the way. Taking place from the 10th April to the 13th, keep the children entertained while you indulge in Sizergh’s home grown produce and delicious coffee.

At Castle Green, we’re surrounded by nature. Perched above Kendal, our landscaped gardens are the perfect place to celebrate Earth Hour. On the 28th March at 8:30pm people around the world will turn off their lights and witness the stars as they illuminate the night sky. Join millions of people as they celebrate the natural world. Step outside with the kids or your loved one and marvel at the universe above.

Alternatively, experience Earth Hour from the comfort of your own private balcony. When you book a Garden Room, you can witness the stars in private, wrapped up warm in a cosy blanket, while sipping on a glass of red. Receive luxury bathrobes and slippers for a proper private viewing.
