Easter activities for the whole family

By Wateredge Inn

Daffodils are blooming, we’re finally (fingers crossed!!) seeing the back of all that snow. It must mean that Easter is on the horizon. The Lake District is the perfect place for a little Easter break, there’s so many activities for the whole family to enjoy.
