The Lake District is ideal for your winter break

The Lake District is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK. During the summer it is packed with tourists taking part in great outdoor activities like fell-walking, hiking, and trekking, but it also has so much to offer in the winter months. Here’s a couple of reasons why it makes for a great winter destination!

It looks even better in the winter

There’s no denying that the Lake District is one of the most beautiful places in the UK, maybe even in Europe, but what makes it really special is that it looks just as great in winter as it does in the summer months. Its striking landscapes, woodlands and of course the lakes look even more stunning under a layer of snow or covered in the oranges and reds of autumn than they do bathed in the mid-summer sun. It makes the area great for amateur photographers, too, whether you’re just snapping on your iPhone or you’re taking some more serious kit with you – you’ll be able to showcase your photography talents for your friends and family when you get back home!

You can relax in the comfort of a great hotel

Lots of people associate the Lake District with outdoor activities, such as golfing, cycling, and walking, and even though these are fantastic days out, they aren’t all that the area has to offer. The Lake District is home to some of the most luxurious hotels in the UK, and at the Borrowdale Gates our 4 star hotel and AA Rosette restaurant can keep you comfortable and occupied throughout your break.
