Typical British Weather Sees Last Minute Bookings - Lake District

Typical British Weather Sees Last Minute Bookings

With the unpredictable English summer underway, the Days Inn Kendal has noticed an increase in the amount of last minute bookings being made.

Guests are not willing to risk ruining their break with the weather and as a result, they will wait and pay a bit more nearer the time rather than book at a special offer rate that they can’t cancel.

In the first quarter of 2013, it has often been the case that guests check the weather forecast a couple of days before and then go on to book their stay in the Lake District.

The weather is extremely changeable in the Lake District National Park as it is, with milder winters and cooler summers due to the influence of the sea. Camilla Nutter, Manager at the Days Inn Kendal says: “Many tourists to this part of England are aware that the weather here is unpredictable but many are just not willing to take the risk. With snow right up until April this year and experts predicting another unsettled summer, we are expecting last minute bookings to continue to rise.”

It is in fact the Lake District’s climate that has shaped the landscape of fells, valleys and lakes. We should be thankful for the wet weather that gives this National Park its lush green valleys and feeds the lakes and rivers. This unique part of England is beautiful come rain or shine.

If you’re visiting the Lake District this summer, make sure you pack some waterproof clothing as well as extra socks, hats and gloves. Even in July and August it can get cool in the evenings, especially if you’re out on one of the lakes or climbing the mountains.

Book your stay in Kendal hotels with Days Inn UK today and embrace the Great British Summer.
