Graham Hadaway - Tuesday, September 08, 2015

With autumn and winter peaking around the corner and a chill coming off Lake Windermere, you may assume that the tourist season dwindles in the Lake District and nothing happens. Wrong! Below we’ve collected 5 of the best events happening over the next month for our guests to enjoy. Which will you be visiting when you come to stay at one of our three luxurious locations?


Holker Hall Chilli Festival – Saturday 12th-13th September

Set in the extravagant surroundings of nearby Holker Hall, the Chilli Festival sees specialist chilli companies from all over the UK convene on the gardens for a weekend of entertainment, eating, and cookery demonstrations. If you’re feeling extra brave, and have a tongue of steel, there’s even a chilli eating competition for you to enter.

Sky Ride: Ambleside World Heritage Ride To Grasmere – Sunday 13th September

Sky Ride’s have been taking place all over the UK for the past few years in celebration of cycling and community, and this one has been launched to also coincide with the Lake District’s bid to become a World Heritage Site. With a comfortable pace and a distance of 10 miles, this Sky Ride runs from Ambleside to Grasmere via Rydal and allows you to take in the relaxing sights and sounds.

Watch the Waterbird and Enjoy Afternoon Tea at Brockhole – 17th September

An oft-forgotten part of the Lake District’s history was Captain Edward Wakefield - three times mayor of Kendal, Army officer, barrister and landowner – and his attempt to take off from Lake Windermere in Britain’s first hydro-electric plane in 1911.

In a recreation of this historic event, RAF Serviceman Gerry Cooper will be at the controls of a £160,000 replica of the Waterbird hydro-aeroplane, due for take-off from Windermere Motor Boat Racing Club at about 6.45pm. What better place to enjoy the daring flight than from the splendid surroundings of Brockhole, with a delicious Afternoon Tea?

'Abandon Normal Devices' Festival at Grizedale Forest – 18th-20th September

Turning Grizedale Forest into a temporary haven for all manner of creative types – from film makers and artists to philosophers and scientists – Abandon Normal Devices (AND) is aiming to create a space where audiences can experience the forest anew through the creation of new art works at the historical site.


Artworks have been situated throughout the sculpture park and can be discovered via trails and treks which look at everything from the biological resonance in technology to the simulation of nature.
