Find Your Perfect Christmas Break in the Lake District

The Lake District is stunning at any time of year, but at Christmas, it’s a truly magical place to be.

Whatever your Christmas style, the Lake District can offer you the perfect break.

Find Your Perfect Christmas Break in the Lake District

The Great Outdoors Christmas

For lovers of the great outdoors, the Lake District is the ideal place to be at this time of the year. From the snow-capped mountain peaks to the serenity and peacefulness of the Lakes themselves, there’s so much to see and do in this truly spectacular winter landscape. Take a walk in a picture postcard wonderland before returning to your hotel for mulled wine and food as wonderful as the scenery.

The Friends and Family Christmas 

There’s not a more perfect place to spend a traditional family Christmas than in the Lake District. There’s so much to see and do, with traditional Christmas markets and magical trips on the Ullswater steamers. Don’t miss Santa’s Express or the chance to take tea with Peter Rabbit and all your other Beatrix Potter favourites. With beautiful Christmas lights to enjoy and fairy-tale castles to visit, why not enjoy owls at moonlight or a climbing challenge at the Kong Adventure Climbing Wall? 

Hotels in the Lake District are renowned for their warm welcome, and there really is nowhere nicer to be on Christmas Eve than gathered around the fireplace in a traditional family-friendly hotel, toasting marshmallows by the fire and enjoying mulled wine as the lights twinkle on the trees outside.

The Getting Away from it all Christmas

If you’re fed up with turkey and find Christmas a bit of a bore, then why not rediscover your love of the Christmas spirit with a proper traditional Christmas where you don’t have to lift a finger?

The Lake District is adorned with traditional decorations, and the aroma of mulled wine lulls you into a feeling of pure relaxation. Enjoy a cosy atmosphere and delicious food, combined with a Cumbrian service at one of the many hotels. You will feel at home from the moment you arrive for Christmas in the Lake District. 

The Someone Special Christmas 

If all you want for Christmas this year is a romantic getaway with that special someone, then the Lake District is the perfect place. In particular, the town of Keswick is the ideal bolthole for a Christmas made for two. Whether you prefer to explore the beauties of the surrounding countryside or shop until you drop in the Boxing Day sales, make your first Christmas together a truly beautiful experience with a break in the Lake District.

Have you ever spent Christmas in the Lake District?

    I visited the Lake District for the first time this summer and it was unforgettable! We explored the area around Keswick, and stayed in a shepherds hut overnight which was just gorgeous! I would love to visit at Christmas time too!

    Omg I love this idea of lake! It’s so beautiful and peaceful. Christmas doesn’t always have to be red and green, I think it’s more like how you spend it!

    I would absolutely love to spend Christmas somewhere like The Lake District. Such a stunning place to be, with some of my favourite climbs. The only down side is the weather; you’d need many many layers. The upside is that you may get a white Christmas.

    Ohh this is a cool idea to spend Christmas. I admire the place and still considering of planning a vacation here but not in the holidays because I need to visit my family.
