AS LOCKDOWN decreases one of the Lake District's most popular attractions has been able to reopen.

Windermere's Brockhole was given the green light to reopen after months of lockdown.

Sam Mason, General Manager of Brockhole on Windermere said: “Following three months of glorious sunshine when we were closed, it was typical that Brockhole opened again this weekend to rain and wind, but we were still absolutely delighted to welcome back visitors to our beautiful 30 acre site here on the shores of Windermere, whatever the weather.

“Our huge free adventure playground was open and was reasonably busy and our cafes did steady business all weekend.

“We have all really missed being here and welcoming our visitors from around the world.

"Windermere Lake Cruises are yet to re-introduce their regular service to Brockhole, although they are still offering other round trips."

Brockhole was able to reopen Saturday July 4.
