Autumn Weekend Breaks in the Lake District

Catch the last of summer’s warmth and the first of the crisp autumn weather this September and October with a weekend break at Abbey House Hotel & Gardens.

Located just below the South Lakes, Abbey House Hotel & Gardens is just a short drive from the heart of the Lake District, one of the finest parts of England to enjoy the blaze of autumn trees.

The 14 acres of private woodland and gardens that surround the hotel put on a spectacular show each autumn, enjoyed during a stroll through the grounds, or simply from your room or suite windows.

Further afield; explore the Lake District National Park with vivid autumn colours perfectly reflected in Lake Windermere and Coniston Water.

Here are just some of Abbey House Hotel & Gardens’ recommendations for beautiful autumn views:

  • Grizedale Forest- just over 30 minutes from Abbey House Hotel & Gardens, Grizedale is truly picturesque in autumn.
  • Whinlatter Forest- this unique mountain forest boasts dramatic views and lies an hour and a half north of Abbey House Hotel & Gardens.
  • High Dam at Lake Windermere- take a walk around the tarn surrounded by larch, pine, oak and birch. High Dam is just a 20-minute drive from the hotel.

At the end of a day spent exploring the fells, woods and waters; enjoy a delightful meal at Oscar’s Restaurant.  Opt for the oak paneled dining area, or the heated dining terrace, which is perfect for drinking in garden views.
