Spring in the Lake District


Spring in the Lake District– that’s something to look forward to in the depths of winter. A time of snowdrops and daffodils after the darkness of winter.However, before we reach Spring, we can still offer you one last special offer for January 2018.

Some people talk about the January blues, but the days are aready getting a little longer- what’s there to be blue about? By the way, we have just one special offer winter break still available. Stay 4 nights between 17 and 22 January for the price of 3. That’s a special rate of only £330 for four nights. Add up to two extra nights at just £50 per night. Here’s a photo I took on the terrace in January a few years ago.

January on the terrace

 Brockstone Grasmere Cottage has been very busy  this winter, and guests have loved getting out in the day on the fells, then relaxing by the log burning stove in the evening. We’re pretty booked up for the rest of the winter, but we do have some Spring dates left.The next available date is the 6 of March. We have a special offer. You can stay 4 nights from Tuesday 6 March for the price of 3 ( £330)  The cottage is still available between Tuesday  6 March and  Saturday 31 March. We can take a minimum stay of 3 nights until 17 March, but from Saturday 17 March we only take stays of 1 week or more, with changeover day being Saturday.

Spring in the Lake District is snowdrop time.

The first flowers of spring are the snowdrops.

Snowdrops at our Grasmere Cottage

Snowdrops usually appear in the Lake District in February. These pretty little flowers are a sign that Spring is on the way. Snowdrops are not flashy like daffodils. They hide away by hedges. However, the flashes of white and green are so welcome after winter. Well worth looking out for!

Spring in the Lake District is Daffodil time

The Lake District is famous for daffodils. William Wordsworth lived just a few minutes along the lane from Brockstone Grasmere Cottage when he wrote the world’s most famous poem, Daffodils, often known by its first line “I wandered lonely as a cloud”. To find out more about this poem, click through to an article I wrote on Wordsworth’s Daffodils and what lies behind the poem.
