Banish the Winter Blues
The Lake District may once have been regarded as a summer destination, but this certainly isn't the case anymore! There's never been a better time to take a well-deserved break in the Lakes - here are just some of the reasons you should!
Wrapping up warm for a walk on a crisp and sunny winter morning
When we're on holiday in winter we think there's nothing nicer than to embrace the cold weather and get out on a brisk and refreshing walk in the company of family and friends. Whether you're a keen walker or a complete hiking novice, there's something in the Lake District for every taste and ability, and if you're not after anything too strenuous you needn't take on mountains to find some really great views!
Picture-postcard views of snow on the hills
If you're a big fan of snow, one of the things we love in the Lake District is that even when it doesn't reach us at lower level, the hills can be covered in a blanket of white and they look beautiful. As winter turns to spring, it can seem quite strange to feel the first warmth of the sunshine, yet still be able to see snow on the tops!
Cosy fires in traditional pubs and tearooms...
After that invigorating walk, what better way to recharge than to sit by a roaring fire in a tearoom or traditional Lakeland pub or tearoom.
Magical sunrises and sunsets
The winter sunrises and sunsets can be spectacular in the Lakes - they're wonderful to see, and great for photographers too! And at this time of year, you don't have to get up all that early to see the sun making its appearance!
