WINTER breaks IN THE LAKE DISTRICT & CUMBRIA
The winter months in Cumbria see the county undergo a dramatic change in scenery. The sweeping valleys turn from shades of orange, yellow & gold as winter turns into spring, taking hold of the countryside and making for some truly spectacular views.
Winter in the Lake District is an unmissable time of year. The towns, fells & fields look amazing on a bright, crisp cold sunny day in Cumbria. Then as night falls, experience a cosy cottage or lakeside hotel with log fire and enjoying the magical views from your window.
January is a quiet and peaceful time of year, giving you plenty of space to get out and explore all that Cumbria has to offer whilst enjoying the breathtaking 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.
Springtime in Cumbria sees the county turn all shades of green, red & yellow as the valleys & hills come to life. Daffodils flowering on the shores of Windermere and flower gardens exploding with colour across our country estates. Spring is truly a beautiful time of year to visit.
