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. So whether you want to stuff your face with chocolate, visit some of the local sights, or tromp up a big hill there’s an activity to suit every fancy and every age.
