What is Windermere Like in March?

Although Windermere in March is fairly quiet, it can also be an ideal time of year for a cheap holiday in the Lake District. After all, unlike during the major events of the summer, accommodation is likely to be easier to book at the last minute.

There are fewer crowds, meaning you can truly enjoy the surrounding countryside and feel like you’ve genuinely escaped for the weekend. Also, fewer visitors mean the major attractions aren’t as crowded, plus you still benefit from seeing the Lake District in Spring.

March certainly is a time when the Lake District quite literally springs into life. The scenery is a wash of colour, from the blossom on the trees to the flowers in the fields. Likewise, if you’re visiting a local farm upon your travels, it’s the time of year baby lambs are born for that added cute factor.
