Spring Is In The Air

Snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses are blooming, the birds are singing and soon the fields will be filled with Spring lambs.  It's the perfect time to take a break and reconnect with nature. You can even stay on a working farm and maybe have the chance to cuddle or feed a lamb.*

*not all of our working farms will offer this experience so please check when booking.

Mothers Day In Keswick

Sunday 31st March is Mothers Day.  What better place to take Mum for the day than Keswick.  She can enjoy a wander around the shops, perhaps a stroll along the lakeshore and then a delicious lunch or afternoon tea.  If the weather is not so good, there are plenty of indoor attractions that she might like too.  You could even treat her to some pampering, now who wouldn't love that.

Take a look at our website to help you plan the perfect Mothers Day.
