It has been a long Winter. At least five months of bare trees trunks, waking up in darkness and your breath ascending into steam clouds above your head. Finally it is April. The sun is out, the thick coats are off and the trees are blossoming.
We all think about throwing open the windows and having a Spring clean. But why not get out into nature, top up on some vitamin D and spring clean the soul? Elterwater is the perfect place to do this. Escape the city, get some fresh air into your lungs and let Winter fall away.
Book your train tickets or pack the hire car and head up north to the Lake District. Here is my Elterwater Mini-Guide with all you need for a springtime escape in the Lakes.
