Imagine stepping out of your own private hot tub spa suite while visiting Windermere in October this year. After all, we all deserve a little “me time” every now and again. Although within the romantic setting of our Aphrodite Boutique Suites you’ll no doubt want to spend your Autumn staycation with the one you love.
Things to do near Windermere in October
While many guests relish in the chance to take some time out, relaxing in their hot tub without a care in the world, others adore a sense of adventure. As there are many reasons to visit Windermere and the Lake District during October, from country pubs to world-famous attractions.
It may sound a cliché, but there really is something for everyone. It’s no secret that Cumbria is an ideal getaway for bicycle rides through the mountains, long walks over the hills and gentle river cruises on Lake Windermere.
Yet beyond the scenic views, you’ll soon discover another charm of life in the Lake District. While the summer months are great for tourists, Autumn is a time of reflection, to indulge in the finer things in life. Whether that be the mod-cons of your hot tub spa suite or booking a table at a fine-dining restaurant such as Francine’s or the Lamplighter Dining Rooms.
The quieter time of year doesn’t mean the tourist attractions have closed down either. In fact, far from it. Time it right and you could be taking a look around Wray Castle or enjoying a ride on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway without the queues. Even popular child-friendly museums, for example, the World of Beatrix Potter aren’t as busy during half-term week.
What’s the Weather like in October?
It’s safe to say if you’re relying on the Great British weather, then you can never be too sure if it’s going to be rain or sunshine. As we type this there’s what can only be described as a mini-heatwave, which may last a week or could be over in a matter of hours.
However, that said, average temperatures are generally slightly milder as we head into Autumn. Yet, this is met with the added bonus of a change in season. After all, who doesn’t like the sound of freshly fallen leaves crunching beneath their feet?
When it comes to Autumn, the Lakes are a stunning blanket of colour. The trees are a heavenly mixture of reds, auburn, browns and yellows. While the early evening sunsets create an awe-inspiring backdrop to any romantic picnic or even a bag of fish and chips on the way home.
