The Lake District is a very special place for so many people. From simply a memorable holiday to a place for popping the big question and honeymoons.
And Windermere is most definitely suited to all of the above and celebrations of all kinds thanks to its central location, lots of lovely hotels and restaurants, the fells and of course, Lake Windermere.
One hotel in Windermere have noticed an increasing amount of guests asking for Champagne in the room for a special occasion, balloons, chocolates, rose petals etc. Applegarth Villa Hotel is an adult only hotel where luxury is paramount and any celebration will be a memorable one. They have created a choice of three packages one for Honeymoon/Mini Mooners, one for engagements and one as a general celebration package for anything from Birthday’s to congratulations. Each package differs slightly to reflect the nature of the stay and balloons are specifically ordered inscribed for that extra personal touch. Also look out for the seasonal Valentines Package.
The beauty of these packages (apart from the treats!) is that they can be added onto any room or suite meaning guests can feel extra special even when staying in one of the Deluxe Rooms which are the most affordable rooms. Even better, the packages provide excellent value for money with significant savings compared to the cost of purchasing each item separately.
Its never been a better time to visit Windermere. The village itself is thriving with more and more delightful cafes and restaurants opening. The Crafty Baa Pub is a must visit for all craft and real ale lovers winning not just awards in the county of Cumbria but nationwide. Head to Bandito Burrito for a mid afternoon snack, full of flavour and plenty of healthy options. A short walk down to Bowness for shopping galore and of course, Windermere Lake Cruises for boat trips to Waterhead for Ambleside and Lakeside.
We can’t forget the fells though and being on the main bus routes through the central Lakes, Windermere is the place for car free travel or just walk from the village itself.
