Any Cumbria business in any way connected to the tourism industry will be hoping for a bumper Easter. An early Easter can often mean a quieter one in terms of trade yet with the length and breadth of the country experiencing a truly horrid winter, it will hopefully mean people will choose to getaway for a holiday or just a weekend break.
Of course, the trend the tourism industry has been experiencing in recent years has been that of last minute and late bookings. It’s a fact of life now for this industry with all forms of travel from a night away to full holidays being booked in this way. Guests want the very best prices and feel last minute bookings are the best way to achieve this. The unpredictability of the weather has also contributed to the late booking trend.
For anyone in two minds as to whether or not to make their way up to “The Lakes” then JUST DO IT! The place is looking stunning with snow still on the some of the tops, exceedingly dry underfoot due to the amazing weather we’ve had here in the past three weeks and daffodils to be seen at every glance.
There are some amazing deals being offered by hotels, b&b’s and self catering accommodation providers in the county so it really is a great time to visit. The following tourism operators all have super deals for Easter:
Lakeland Cottage Company – 25% discount on all remaining Easter weeks, weekend and mid week breaks.
Applegarth Villa Hotel – Free dinner for 2 offer when booking double room B&B. (excludes Bank Holiday weekend).
