Alternative Things to do in Windermere

Alternative Things to do in Windermere

While there are plenty of obvious places to go in Cumbria, there are lots of alternative things to do in Windermere.

Lakes Aquarium

It wouldn’t be a trip to the Lake District without putting a toe in the water. However, at the Lakes Aquarium you can get up close to some of those water dwellers you may not see out on Lake Windermere.

The Beatrix Potter Museum

Wherever you look you will soon find out about Beatrix Potter’s links to the Lake District. In particular, Windermere, which also went on to inspire the stories of Peter Rabbit. If you’re visiting over the next few days, you may even be able to catch a performance of a musical performed in her honour.

Brockhole Visitor Centre

Although a popular attraction on the banks of Windermere, there’s a wide range of things to see and do. While you may be away in a Spa Suite in Windermere, leaving the family behind, Brockhole holds plenty of events for the younger visitors.

Cumbria Balloons

As for something a little more romantic, you will certainly get away from it all with Cumbria Balloons. Fly high above the Lake Districts in a hot air balloon, a perfect romantic gesture to compliment your time in your Spa Suite in Windermere.

Kankku Off Road Driving

Do you still like the extreme elements of outdoor activities, but want to stay at ground level while keeping your feet dry? Then Kankku Off Road Driving could be for you. 4×4’s are just another way to explore your surroundings.

Glebe Recreation Ground

While away staying in boutique spa suite in Windermere, how about a little bit of light-hearted fun at Glebe Recreation ground. You can challenge your loved one to a game of crazy golf or pitch and putt. Alternatively just relax as you spend time out in the Lake District, maybe take a picnic or just venture off for an afternoon stroll.

Fell Foot Park

While the Windemere Lake Cruises are an obvious way to explore the waters, for alternative things to do in Windermere why not hire your own? Although we’re not talking steamboats here, so you’ll have to do some of the hard work yourself. Grab a rowing boat, drift off into the water before making your way back to your Spa Suite in Windermere.

Surf the Turf

Another of our more unusual alternative things to do in Windermere is Surf the Turf. Imagine surfboarding, zorbing and cycling all in one place. The mountain boarding centre in Windermere will lend you all you need for the activities. Where you’ll certainly be in need of a massage by the end of it!

Staying at the Windermere Tranquil Retreat, you can book in for any of the spa sessions available at Aphrodite’s Lodge. Not only that, but you’ll have access to your own private garden in Windermere and hot tub to help you relax. Why not book your spa suite today.
