WINTER IN THE LAKE DISTRICT & CUMBRIA
The Christmas and New Year period in the Lake District is an unmissable time of year. The towns, fells & fields all turn white as the winter season comes to Cumbria. You can experience a truly magical white Christmas in your cosy cottage, tucked up with some mulled wine and enjoying the magical views from your window.
And who says it's impossible to have a good New Year's Eve? Make this New Year one to remember as you bring in 2017 with the dramatic Cumbrian countryside as the back drop to your celebrations on the 31st December.
January is a traditionally quieter time of year giving you plenty of time & space to get out and explore all Cumbria has to offer without the crowds of summer, all whilst taking in the breath-taking winter scenery.
As we roll into February, Cumbria makes for the perfect romantic getaway for a special valentines weekend with your nearest & dearest. A walk up the fells, a cruise on the lake followed by a romantic meal on the shore will provide memories that last a life time, making you want to visit Cumbria time and time again.
