We are in the midst of experiencing the hottest September on record with dry, above average weather looking to continue further for the next few days. Early autumn is one of the best times of the year to visit the Lake District for a relaxing break after the school summer holidays yet still with some length to the days.
Although the British weather can be unpredictable no matter what time of the year it is, September into early October gives the chance for long days outdoors enjoying the Lake District fells for walking, cycling, sailing and even alternative ways of driving thanks to electric car hire.
Electric car hire but with a different o many, a Renault Twizy. Small, compact, perfect for two and the best way in which to travel along the multitude of mountain passes in the Lake District. These vehicles enable visitors staying in the south and central Lake District to visit the Western Lakes taking in Wrynose and Hardknott Passes. Renault Twizy’s can be hired from the Langdale Hotel and are just the best form of travel over these narrow passes. Head over these historic roads and reach attractions such as La’al Ratty, the miniature steam train which runs from Eskdale to Ravenglass by the sea and western fells. Charging points can be found at Eskdale to top up before returning to the Langdale Valley.
Another great drive and destination in a Langdale hired Twizy is over Kirkstone Pass and to Ullswater where a cruise on one of the Ullswater Steamers can be enjoyed. Another fantastic day out and the views when heading down Kirkstone Pass in the valley are stunning.
Langdale Hotel have a fleet of Twizy’s that can be hired from the hotel reception for just £10 per hour. A valid drivers licence is required to be shown and the rate includes membership of Co-Wheels. For accommodation then this Lake District Hotel has a variety of room choices starting at £125 per room or alternatively rent one of the self catering lodges, cottages or apartments for 3, 4 or 7 nights.
