All year round there is plenty to do and explore in the Lake District. When is comes to national holidays like Easter there are even more events and activities on the table, how do you choose? To help you see the wood from the trees as it were, we have listed a few events happening over the easter break that we think are certainly worth a look…

Brown Robin Nature Reserve Spring Walk

If your passion, and reason for visiting the Lake District this Easter is nature, during your stay with us take a day trip to Grange-Over-Sands. On April 14th, Tony Saunders who is the Honorary Reserve Manager is hosting a guided two mile walk to see the first birds returning to the reserve, including potential sightings of the rare Hawfinch.

Quiz Night at The Sticklebarn

Or if you prefer a good knees up after a long day walking on the fells we’d strongly recommend heading to The Sticklebarn quiz night in the stunning Langdale Valley, the pub is just a short 7mile scenic drive from us here in Ambleside. The quiz is £1 per person to enter and the winning team takes home the kitty. This event is also on April 14th, from 8pm. Go to: for more details.

A host of Daffodils Guided Walk

Are you a fan of William Wordsworth? Then this guided walk on April 19th is not to be missed! The event starts at the picturesque location of Ullswater Information Centre in Glenridding, a 30 minute drive from Ambleside. Walk goers will start by taking the steam train from Glenridding to the famed Aira Force waterfalls and the site of Wordsworth’s golden daffodils. Then the group will take the beautiful, easy level, 3.7mile walk back. Visit: for more information.
