May Day in the Lake District

The May Day holiday was not formalised in England until 1978 although it has ancient traditions and may have evolved from the Roman festival celebrating the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. To this day there is a custom of crowning a May Queen who represents the Roman Goddess Flora and the day involves garlands of flowers and dancing either round a maypole or Morris dancing.

May is a lovely time to visit the Lake District with temperatures warming up and less recorded rainfall than over the summer months. There are plenty of activities to choose from as well as spectacular scenery to enjoy. If outdoor pursuits are your interest you can walk, cycle, rock climb or fell run to your heart’s content. The area also offers tempting places to eat and drink from traditional Lakeland pubs to renowned, chic restaurants and microbreweries. If you fancy some culture you can discover more about the famous people who are associated with the area such as William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin. For family fun there are steam railways, bird watching, treetop adventure playgrounds and boat hire for playing at Swallows and Amazons.

We have a range of beautiful, self catering and dog friendly cottages in the Lake District to suit all sizes of parties from a romantic break for two to an extended group of family and friends. All of our cottages are located in the heart of the district so you are never far from the activities that interest you.
