From a la carte dining, catering in your cottage to wondering down to a friendly local pub, the welcome and hospitality that the Lake District offers is the very best and will have you smiling during your whole stay.
Short Break 2019 Goals
This year, if you keep one resolution in 2019 make sure it is to include lots of relaxation. Short breaks are a great way to get a much-needed dose of R&R, without the cost and time implications of a longer holiday. Making regular short breaks part of your 2019 goals will bring so many benefits. The excitement and motivation of having something booked is a superb incentive for keeping to resolutions! You can also book attractions and activities in advance, benefiting from reduced rates. Regular breaks, rather than a single excursion, also gives you an excuse to pack in more R&R activities, of which the Lake District is brimming. Perhaps it’s time to make a list of 2018 Lake District activity goals. We’d include some of the following: beach horse riding, bagging some Wainwrights, wild swimming, stand-up paddle boarding, trying a zip-wire, learning some bush-craft skills, ghyll scrambling and landscape painting. What would be on your list?
New Year Retreat
If you’re staying that bit longer, perhaps for Christmas and New Year, then a Lake District log cabin could be just the tonic to the chaos that December can bring. What better than slowing down to the peaceful rhythms of the sights and sounds of wildlife right on your doorstep from a log cabin holiday. In winter, without the bright lights of 24 hour urban cities, nights in the Lake District are made for cosying up next to a log burner. The muffled quiet of the snow-capped landscape slows busy minds whilst the fresh air nourishes. Lake District woodlands, enjoyed straight from your log cabin, are magical and inspiring places in Winter and will ease away any stresses and strains.
Perhaps you’re looking to enjoy a low-key celebration of 2018 followed by a week of rest and recuperation. Choose a cottage with a hot tub and enjoy the restorative benefits of a hot soak amidst stunning mountain scenery.
Perhaps a secluded location like Troutbeck, Cartmel or Lakeside, where you can spend the days walking the fells and evenings curled up next to a log burner or open fire is what you’re looking for.
The peace and tranquillity of the Lakes at New Year makes the region a particularly good break for pets. Fireworks and loud parties are not for most pets, who would often prefer a midnight countryside walk or evening of calm. Look out for the paw symbol when browsing our New Year Lake District Breaks and rest at easy knowing that pets stay free with Lakelovers.
If you’re wanting to soak up the famous warm Lake District hospitality, then head to the bustle of the south Lakes or Keswick in the north. We have the very finest large cottages in these popular New Year spots that are suitable for the very best celebrations.
Impress friends and family with an architect-designed holiday home. Or wow with million-dollar views and state-of-the-art accommodation. In Keswick, join the midnight countdown as friends and families get together in the market square outside the town clock to countdown the New Year. Or, in the south Lakes head to Windermere’s jetty on the Bowness promenade. As midnight approaches, take in the fireworks and celebratory atmosphere.
Why not join in the New Year jovialities aboard a steamer on one of the Lake District’s great lakes? Choose Windermere, Coniston, Derwent or Ullswater for unique New Year memories that you and your loved ones will long remember.
