Just because your Dad is off staying in a Boutique Spa Hotel in the Lake District, it doesn’t mean you can’t meet up. Here are 5 ideas for Father’s day in Windermere, alternatively maybe a relaxing father/daughter spa session is needed.
Where to go for a drink?
One of several popular bars near to Aphrodites Lodge is the Albert, in Queen’s Square, just a short walk from Lake Windermere. You can even stop for lunch and enjoy some local produce.
Then there’s the oldest pub in Bowness-on-Windermere at the Hole in T’Wall, serving beer since 1612. The Angel is another good choice, a traditional pub and again only a couple of minutes away from the water’s edge.
If you want to go for cocktails rather than a beer, Windermere has that covered too. There’s the Crafty Baa, the Fizzy Tarte or Cantina. So wherever you want to go for a drink this father’s day in Windermere, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Book a table for dinner
The same can be said for eating out in the Lake District this father’s day. It doesn’t matter if you’re after a spot of pub grub or a fine dining experience. One thing’s for certain though, it’s likely to be a busy weekend so make sure you book a table in advance.
There is a selection of restaurants close to our Windermere Boutique Spa Hotel. Linthwaite House, which has terrace seating overlooking the Lake. Bodega Bar brings a little bit of Spain to the centre of Windermere, while Villa Positano is a great Italian.
As for fine dining, the chances are Michelin Starred The Samling is already fully booked, but it’s worth remembering for next time.
Hire a boat on Lake Windermere
You’ve already booked a spa hotel this father’s day in Windermere, so how do you top that! Well, while your Dad relaxes in his private hot tub why not leave him another surprise. Get ready for an afternoon on Lake Windermere.
There are a number of options when it comes to boat hire on Lake Windermere. From speed boats and yachts to pedalos and kayaks, he can either be king of the waves or a man on an adventure.
Enjoy a River Cruise
Why do the hard work when someone else can do it for you? While being at the helm with the wind in your hair has its place, a relaxing river cruise will give you time to chat and enjoy the scenery.
There are two main options when staying in Windemere. The Lake Windermere River Cruises or taking a ride to Coniston with the Steamboat Gondola.
Watch the World Cup
It’s the group stages of the World Cup, so there’s no chance of the matches going into extra time or those dreaded penalties. As such, you can surely drag your father away from his hot tub for 90 minutes. The big names kick off this weekend, with both Germany and Brazil in action.
