The new season has started now at Limefitt and more people than ever seem to be plumping for short breaks in the Lakes  this year.

Our lodges are all booking up quickly, especially for the peak periods, but you can still find availability quite easily to slip in a quick break out of season.

Come and enjoy the Lake District in the beautiful spring sunshine ans enjoy sights like this, just 100 yards from Limefitt Park.


Do you want to know what the weather is like at Limefitt Park right now?

If you do then you can visit the web cam at

Happy Christmas!

We look forward to seeing  many of you at Limefitt Park next year!

Always take the weather with you

With the weather being much on people’s minds just now I thought it might be useful to point out an excellent weather site on the web.


It will give you an idea of what weather to expect if you come to stay in Windermere Lodge.

The Lake District on TV again

Did you see the Adventurer’s Guide to Britain featuring the Lake District last week – if you missed it you can check it out here


A short film about Bowness and Windermere

Lakes TV are a company who specialise in making films about, yes, you got it, The Lake District.

Here is an informative short film about the towns of Windermere and Bowness which are only about 3 miles from Otter Lodge

The Best Lake District Video of 2011?

We like videos of the Lake District – so much that we made our own that you can see on our advert at http://www.limefitt.com/troutbeckview.htm. Sometimes though you come across something so surreal that it takes you by surprise.

As I was browsing Twitter this morning @Cumbria_Lakes pointed me towards this wonderful offering from @HerdyUK so I thought I’d share it with you.

Enjoy :-)

Gales in the Lake District

It’s been a gusty day in the North West.

They say there’s no such thing as bad weather in the Lake District, just the wrong clothes, but you’d have had to wrap up well today!

Several roads have been closed including the A591  between Windermere and Ambleside and the A592 south of Troutbeck. We have not had it as bad as Scotland but the weather has been quite severe.

We have had so much rain over the last few days that they have had to open the sluice gates at the southern end of Windermere. The last time this happened was during the Cumbrian floods of 2009.

Ironically on the day we hear that the first wind turbines in the Lake District National Park have just been given planning permission to allow the iconic Kirkstone Pass Inn to keep functioning, the winds today have been to strong for wind turbines around the country!
