If you’re lucky enough to be spending some time in the Lake District this summer, then don’t forget to pack the sandwiches. Here at Aphrodite’s Lodge, we’ve selected some of the Best Windermere Picnic Spots:
The Beaches of Buttermere
How does a romantic picnic by the lakes sound? The secluded beaches of Buttermere don’t come much more special than this. The perfect BBQ spot in the Lake District, one with views that are hard to beat.
Fell Foot Park near Newby Bridge
Venture further south from your Windermere spa suite and you can head towards Fell Foot Park. Here you will find an angelic picnic spot near Newby Bridge. The park itself is within easy reach as it sits alongside Lake Windermere.
Once the grounds of a Victorian House, the family home was knocked down in 1907, with plans to rebuild it eventually abandoned. Instead leaving acres of Cumbrian countryside to be enjoyed by the public.
Brockhole on Windermere
Not just one of the best picnic spots in Windermere, Brockhole is also a giant outdoor adventure playground. Only you don’t have to be a child to appreciate it. If however you are meeting up with family, there’s plenty to keep everyone occupied. So after you’ve had your lunch, enjoy the many attractions.
If you fancy trying your hand at clay pigeon shooting, swinging from tree to tree or simply a scenic walk, Brockhole has it all. You can hire a boat, try your hand at archery or hire a bike for a ride across the countryside. Alternatively, the gardens and grounds are still large enough to get away from it all and enjoy a picnic in Windermere.
The Views from Orrest Head
When you’ve walked across the fells of the Lake District, you will have earned that dip in your spa suite hot tub. Then, of course, there are the other spa facilities available at Aphrodite’s Lodge. As for the best Windermere picnic spots, you’re not far from Orrest Head so it would make sense to make the most of your surroundings!
Walking and Eating at Gummer’s How
Another great location for a walk in the Lake District is Gummer’s How. On a clear day not only can you look over Bowness-on-Windermere but you can see Morecambe Bay in the distance too. With plenty of local produce available at nearby shops and markets, you can certainly make your picnic something special.
Alternatively, you can always enjoy a ride on the Windermere Lake Cruises. Take full advantage of the journey through the lakes and travel with a packed lunch.
Book a spa suite with hot tub at Aphrodites Lodge, where you will have the beautiful Lake Windermere on your doorstep. The perfect location for any picnic.
