Going away over Christmas can be a great idea for anyone looking to do something a little bit different over the festive season. While there are many beautiful places that you can go to throughout England, Scotland and Wales, it can be argued that one of the most picturesque places to spend your Christmas and New Year is in the Lake District.

The cottages available in this part of the country are stunning and there are various sizes to suit the needs of your party. This part of the world really is gorgeous at the best of times, but just imagine it at Christmas with a dusting of snow over the fells and nothing but nature for as far as the eye can see, what could be more perfect? You could even go for a morning stroll along the fells before your Christmas Dinner and really work up an appetite! There are so many different places that you can stay in the Lake District such as Kendal, Cartmel, Windermere and many more that you are bound to find the place that has everything that you and your family needs. The lake district is also brilliant if you are taking your four legged friend away with you as there are plenty of wonderful places for dog walking that will help keep all the family busy in the run up to Santa coming.

You don’t have to worry about younger family members getting bored or that there will be nothing to do in the Lake District and Cumbria over Christmas as there are plenty of activities happening all around that you could visit to help get children and adults alike into the Christmas spirit. Around the 20th December, there is the Cartmel Christmas Food Market or the Kendal Christmas Farmers Market that you could take a wander around and about the 21st there are plenty of events such as the Cartmel Choral Society Christmas Concert, a Christmas Party Night at a local hotel or a Christmas Gift and Craft Fair in Kendal to keep you entertained.  Over New Year there are organized walks and parties that you could also go to. These are just some of the events that are available at Christmas time in the Lake District and Cumbria, and a quick Google will help you find details or plenty more events if none of these take your fancy.

Staying in the Lake District and Cumbria over Christmas is bound to give you and your family a Christmas that you will never forget. With stunning views and perfect surroundings, it’s a festive season the whole family will enjoy.
