WINTER BREAKS IN THE LAKE DISTRICT, CUMBRIA

Winter in Cumbria sees the county undergo a beautiful change in scenery. The sweeping valleys turn to shades of orange, yellow and gold as autumn begins to take hold of the countryside, making for some truly spectacular views.

Christmas and New Year in the Lake District is an unmissable time of year. Experience a truly magical winter break in a cosy cottage or perhaps a lakeside hotel with a roaring log fire and glass of mulled wine as you take in the magical views around you. Start 2019 in style and see in the New Year here in Cumbria!

As we head into January, this traditionally quieter time of year gives you the perfect opportunity to get out and about exploring the breathtaking winter scenery or even to try your hand at a new activity. There are action packed days out available all year round so make a new year's resolution to try something new, get out there and explore all that Cumbria has to offer.

February makes for the perfect romantic getaway for a special valentine’s weekend with your loved one. A leisurely fell walk followed by a cruise across a lake and to finish, a romantic meal - your Valentine’s break will provide memories to last forever.
