Easter is a great time to visit the Lake District. It’s a time for daffodils and new born lambs. It’s a time to shrug off the winter blues and look forward to the spring with all its new growth. Take some time out this Easter and book yourself in to one of our pet friendly cottages here in the Lake District.

If you are visiting the Lake District this Easter, you may be lucky enough to see the high fells covered in snow. The view of the white capped mountains against a clear blue sky is uplifting and certainly makes you feel alive.

It has been sometime since we had new born lambs at Melbecks. But there are lambs already out in the neighbouring fields. From their first stumbling steps to their energetic pogo’ing, they immediately find affection in all that see them. We do have plans to re-establish a flock of sheep at Melbecks, so watch this space.

When you are visiting the Lake District this Easter, look out for all the activities and attractions that are available. One of our favourites is Muncaster Castle near Ravenglass which usually organises special events. Mirehouse, Bassenthwaite is popular with our nephews and nieces – the adults can enjoy the gardens against the dramatic back drop of Skiddaw, whilst the children explore the adventure play ground and woodland trails.

If you aren’t able to stay in one of our pet friendly cottages this Easter, then why not plan a visit to the Lake District later in the year. Details of our cottages can be found at https://melbecks.com. All of our cottages are now let on a Friday to Friday basis. Subject to availability, we offer short breaks if your holiday start date is within the next three weeks. Our minimum short break is 3-nights, but you can choose any three nights of the week.
