Broadrayne Farm Cottages, Grasmere...

What comes to mind when you think about spring time in the Lake District? Rolling green hills, lots of lambs and cosy stone cottages to retreat to after a day in the fells? That sounds like a Lake District spring to us!
Broadrayne Farm

1. See the famous Herdwick Sheep

In Grasmere, an idyllic village in the heart of the Lake District at the bottom of the valley lies Broadrayne Farm, a 17th Century cluster of buildings which have been stunningly converted for visitors to enjoy. But the four and five-star cottages, with log fires, private garden areas, WiFi and parking aren’t what steals the spring here…

The land around the cottages is still very much farm land – as well as spectacular views in all directions, visitors to Broadrayne will also see the spectacular sights of lambs in spring. The grey-faced sheep you can see round the farm are famous Lakeland Herdwicks and these fields are saved specifically for those ewes having twins!

With chickens and runner ducks making Broadryane Farm home too, guests can treat themselves at breakfast to fresh hen and duck eggs from their neighbours.

2. Attempt ‘Britain’s Favourite Walk’

As named by ITV earlier this year, Helvellyn is not for the faint hearted. Ascent is usually either attempted from the east of the peak via a long, gentle climb beginning in the Thirlmere Valley, straight from the door of Broadrayne Farm, or a more difficult climb is from the western side of the peak at Glenridding.

Did you know … it is thought William Wordsworth climbed it when he was 70 years old!

If Helvellyn isn’t for you – 4 other Lake District walks made the top 10!

3. Witness Wordsworth’s world-renowned daffodils

Everyone remembers the line ‘I wandered lonely as a cloud’ from school don’t they? But did you know the daffodils in William Wordsworth’s famous poem are the very flowers here in the Lake District. St. Oswald’s Church in the heart of Grasmere is were William Wordsworth and his wife Mary lay to rest. Nestling between the church and the River Rothay you will find Wordsworth’s Daffodil Garden, which come alive in the spring with the abundance of daffodils.
