It’s really not a hardship let’s face it to head down to Lake Windermere at any time of the year let alone a Bank Holiday weekend when the lake shore will be full of life in so many ways.
If you’ve not decided where to go this May Bank Holiday weekend then whatever the weather forecast, Lake Windermere is the place to head to. If the sun is shining and with the daffodils still blooming and even better all the beautiful bluebells popping up. Perfect for couples and for a romantic weekend escape, May Bank Holiday is ideal not being attached to a school holiday.
If you’re in the Bowness area then it really is worth watching the sailing races that start around this time of the year on Lake Windermere.
