Take a further look into these 5 things to do in the Lake District on a rainy day:

- Go Indoor Rock Climbing
- Drop into a Local Bar or Café
- Relax in a Spa Hotel in Windermere
Visit a Local Museum in Cumbria
Whether it’s reliving your youth or engaging in a new interest, museums in Cumbria are in abundance. There’s everything from the World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness-on-Windermere to the Derwent Pencil Museum or the home of William Wordsworth.
Discover the Lake District’s Historical Past
There’s the Armitt Library and Museum in Ambleside, Muncaster Castle or the depths of Honister Slate Mines. Alternatively, the stately home of Blackwell Arts and Crafts House or Dove Cottage often have special events on during the holidays.
Go Indoor Rock Climbing
If you’re determined to go exploring whatever the weather, you can do so without having to get wet. After all, why risk climbing on those slippery cliff faces when there are a couple of indoor rock climbing centres on your doorstep.
There’s the Lakeland Climbing Centre in Kendal, as well as the Ambleside Climbing Wall.
Drop into a Local Bar or Café
Alternatively, things to do in the Lake District on a rainy day may amount to only one thing, sheltering from the rain at the last minute. So what better way to get in from the cold and those unexpected showers than stopping for a drink. Whether that be sampling the local ales at a cosy country pub, or grabbing a coffee and some homemade ginger cake.
Relax at a Spa Hotel in Windermere
Sometimes, it doesn’t really matter what is happening in the great outdoors. It could be you never really intended leaving the comfort of your spa suite in the first place!

They include full use of the hotel pool, as well as breakfast by prior arrangement. We also have our very own health and beauty expert, Natalie, available for all your pampering sessions. As such, while enjoying your spa package break in the Lake District, you can treat yourself to several beauty treatments throughout your stay.
