• The daffodils are in full bloom, lambs are skipping around the fields and the sun is starting to shine a little brighter - that’s right, spring has officially sprung in the Lakes.

    While of course, the Lake District is beautiful in all seasons, in spring it really starts to come into its own following the fresh winter.

    Here are our top three picks of spring activities that are right on our doorstep, here at The Regent Hotel.

    Explore Brockhole’s Mawson Gardens
    You can sign up for a guided tour around Brockhole’s Mawson Gardens on 29 March and get an insight into Brockhole’s history, plants and seasonal highlights, followed by afternoon tea in the café - all for just £9.95 including afternoon tea! (Booking advised).

    Minibeast Magic with Silverband
    The perfect event to keep your little ones entertained on 11 April at Brockhole on Windermere. Find out how Milly the Mombassa train millipede defends herself, see the scorpions that change colour and meet the bearded dragon who eats his lunch in front of children! Sessions at 11am, 12 noon, 1.30pm and 2.30pm. Prices are £5 child, £2 adult, book here.

    Walk in the footsteps of Wordsworth
    On 13 May, you can sign up for a joint World Heritage themed walk in partnership with Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum. You’ll take the steamer from Glenridding to the legendary Aira Force waterfalls and return along the lake shore - discovering why this spectacular landscape deserves to become a World Heritage Site in 2017. Find out more about this event here.

    Of course, one of the best parts of spring is to simply enjoy the milder temperatures and the lighter evenings. Taking a stroll around the Lake District and enjoying the blossoming flowers and the lovely wildlife is special enough in itself. You’ll also be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding somewhere to eat and drink, as we have a number of superb restaurants and cafés right on our doorstep - including our very own popular restaurant.

    Contact us here for more information about our springtime deals and enjoy your stay in the lovely Lake District.

    Guest review

    A guest recently wrote us a thank you note and was happy for us to share it with our lovely blog readers... a little insider look into a night spent at The Regent...

     

    "Hello,

    I wanted to write to tell you how wonderful my recent stay with you was. I enjoyed every moment. Your whole team are absolutely lovely - so friendly and welcoming.

    I arrived and was welcomed by the lovely team on reception and shown to my room, a cosy but large twin bedroom in the courtyard - simply stunning.

    At dinner I feasted on your Cumbrian sharing platter, (not to myself… but it was even too much for two of us!) fantastic portions and a true capture of the beautiful produce available across Cumbria - truly impressed. I then had the pork cutlet. Well… yummy yummy again! Accompanied with a delicious bubble and squeak, roast carrots, spinach and a superb apple puree - I was in a foodie heaven.

    I had the best nights sleep I think i’ve ever had in a hotel and awoke to the stunning sunshine and blue skies of the Lake District. Breakfast was something else. (I had the eggs benedict with salmon - my favourite - one of the best i’ve had). Lovely coffee and LOVELY staff!

    So thank you. I had a truly wonderful stay. So many lovely personal touches. I’ll definitely be back!"

     

    Thanks for reading! If you're looking to enter 'foodie heaven' book a table or your room with us! :)

    Supporting Manna House...

    You may remember a little while ago we donated a very special prize to the Manna House auction evening. A superb evening which raised vital funds for a very worthy cause.

    Well our prize offering was something a little different. Our superb chef Mark, offered to cook a three course dinner in the winners home.

    The winners Dave and Pam have written to us to let us know how it went!

     

    "We just thought you would like to know how our night went with Mark. We had a brilliant time.

    The food was excellent - ham hock terrine, followed by duck three ways and then an absolutely divine chocolate souffle. I don't know if I have ever described food as devine but the chocolate souffle was!

    Mark worked so well in our kitchen and everything was served so profssionally. We, and our friends, could hardly believe what we had bought at the Manna House auction could bring us such enjoyment.

    We are planning a return visit to the Regent and out friends are planning their first.

    Thanks for everything,

    Pam and Dave."

     

    We would like to thank Pam and Dave for their kind words and for helping us support such a fantastic cause!

  • Here at the Regent, we thought we’d start off a New Year of blogs by telling you a little bit more about our team, and who better to start with than the first people you meet through the door… Our fantastic Reception Team!

    We had a couple of new additions to the Reception Team last year, with Catalina and Alex both joining us! Catalina joined us back in January last year, after her wanderlust brought her all the way from Romania! She likes to start the day off with a run by the Lake, so she’s full of life to welcome all our lovely guests. Both Catalina and her partner work at the Regent, and have both signed up for Front of House/Restaurant and Bar courses at Kendal College so they can help better your experience when you stay with us. To relax, Catalina likes to hike around the Lake District and loves taking pictures for her eco-fashion blog!

    Our second recent member of the Reception Team is Alex, having joined us in July of 2016. Alex is also from Romania and enjoys spending his time hiking in the Fells, often riding his bike, admiring the scenery. Travelling, discovering new cultures and meeting new people are amongst Alex’s favourite things to do, having also joined the local Amateur Dramatic Society and ‘The Friends of The Lake District’.

    Our Reception Team are always keen to help. If you ever have any questions or simply want to know what you could be getting up to in the Lakes, you can contact them here.
