It's October and it's officially Autumn. The nights are starting to draw in, the days are beginning to get crisper and the Lake District is about to get spooky! If you're planning a visit to the Lakes for the haunting Halloween weekend, there are a huge range of events that are sure to thrill your spooky side. We've carefully hand-selected a few of our favourites...
We're well into the throes of Autumn, enjoying the beautiful colours of our changing Lakeland scenery, but before long it will be time to batten down the hatches for the hardy Winter months ahead.
Throughout which, we're offering a peaceful and relaxing break full of delicious food, roaring fires and cosy rooms for you to enjoy. Nestled below the fells and just a stone's throw away from the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake we're in an idyllic spot to enjoy the frost underfoot, the gorgeous views and the crisp air - all making for a perfect day in the Lake District.
If, like us, you enjoy all things foodie, you'll love this one. For the eighth year running, Taste Cumbria is returning to Cockermouth this September to treat us all to mouthwatering meals and scrumptious puddings. The two day event, organised for the weekend of the 23-24 September, has quickly become Cumbria's biggest and best food festival. What better place to stay for the festival than The Pheasant Inn!?
The new Summer menu has arrived at our family-friendly Bistro and is packed full of delicious, mouth-watering dishes. While our new menu features lots of new additions, we've also kept a hold of some of our most popular dishes including Fish & Chips, Twice-Baked Local Cheese Soufflé and our scrumptious Confit of Duck.
In our recent AA inspection, the great service and hospitality of our staff was praised by the Inspector. In particular, our trainee business manager Steven Hodgson was singled out and we thought we would introduce him to you by asking him a few questions. Steven has been working here as an apprentice since August 2016 when we were looking to give somebody local the opportunity to train to be a manager at The Pheasant Inn. He is passionate about great service and often gets complimented by our hotel and restaurant guests.
Easter will be soon be here with the promise of a long weekend and where better than to recharge your batteries in the beautiful Lake District. The daffodils, which Wordsworth so famously wrote, are in full bloom, the days are lighter and lovely lambs are filling the fields.
Here in the Lake District there are so many things to do this Easter from exhiliarating walks to visiting fascinating historic houses with dramatic tales to tell. Here is our round up of great ways to spend your Easter break in the Lake District and we hope to see you soon.
