We were going to write a blog post for November about Bonfire Night events in Strawberry Bank and the Cartmel Fell, Bowness on Windemere & Newby Bridge areas but as we come to post this, local events are either cancelled or in a state of hiatus. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and we’ll keep you updated as we find the latest on these.
Instead, and given the current situation, we thought we’d highlight a few days out and activities, available around the Masons Arms over the winter period. Many can be done as small groups, some are more suited to individuals; all can be enhanced by starting, finishing or including within them a little light refreshment… obviously.
For example, in our October post, we talked about how we welcome dogs and highlighted a few dog friendly walks in the area. If that’s you, then you can still read that article, do the walk and bring your pooch for some post perambulation pampering.
However, as the nights get longer and the days cooler, we thought we’d highlight a few of our favourite winter activities and some that our regular visitors like to do when they visit the Masons Arms too.
Things to do in Strawberry Bank throughout winter
It’s hard to imagine a better place to enjoy all that winter has to offer than the Lake District. We’re truly blessed with things to do here, whatever the season. Enjoying the fells is the obvious go-to and a day’s cycling round Grizedale Forest is a great outdoor option in poor weather.
There’s plenty of winter attractions too. For instance. just up the road is the Lakeland Motor Museum, between Newby Bridge and Haverthwaite. Carry on towards Barrow and, slightly bizarrely for winter, you’ll find the South Lakes Safari Zoo open. Finally, if you like a bit of museumage, check out the Lakeland Arts website, where you’ll find a host of indoor things to do in the Lakes throughout winter.
So, there you go. If you’re lucky enough to find a Halloween or Bonfire Night party near Strawberry Bank, to kick off the early part of the festive season, we’ll be here if you’d like to book a table and make night of it.
If however, the current situation precludes that, then perhaps you’ll think of us and pop in when you’re enjoying the great outdoors and the best that winter has to offer in South Lakeland.
