Spring sights in the Lake District

Spring is one of the best times to visit the Lake District, whether you're a local or its your first visit to Cumbria, you're in for a treat. Nature is starting to rear its head after a long winter and we can tell you where to go see some of the most picturesque sights.

Bluebells in Staveley

Our native British bluebells are some of the most iconic and beautiful spring flowers to see, especially when they sprawl across rich woodland. Dorothy Farrer's Wood just along the road towards Kentmere is where you'll find a carpet of bluebells and wild garlic in the spring.

Daffodils in Grasmere

The Wordsworth Daffodil Garden in the centre of Grasmere provides a perfect opportunity to see displays of several thousand daffodils. The garden was created in 2003 as a community project in order to raise funds to support local causes. Around 10,000 daffodil bulbs were planted, and in addition, members of the public were invited to purchase slate stones engraved with their names that were then used to create paths in the garden. Entrance to the garden is free.

Herdwick lambs in Langdale

Our favourite sheep, the humble Herdwick which is native to the fells of the Lake District, have some of the cutest offspring. The lambs are born with fully black wool and are certainly a hardy bunch as they have to be able to withstand often harsh Cumbrian weather conditions. You can park in Langdale Valley and walk along the valley floor spotting
