Why choose the Lake District for your Winter Break?
Winter in Cumbria sees the county undergo a spectacular change in scenery; frost carpets the ground and the trees become bare. With snow on the fell tops the Lake District glistens positively during this time of year. Enjoy the roaring fires in local pubs and hearty feasts prepared in the numerous restaurants. The winter time is great to visit, especially if you want to avoid the crowds.
Places to visit in the Lake District
A visit to the north of the National Park is sure to capture the beauty of winter, with the lakes in Ullswater and Derwentwater providing a glistening layer of ice and the rugged climb of Scafell Pike offering a rewarding challenge.
