New Year Lake District Breaks

New Year Self Catering Cottages Lake District

New Year in the Lake District is about indulgence and celebration and creating lasting memories. Whether this means a large cottage filled with family and friends, laughter, noise and fireworks, or a low-key hideaway in beautiful countryside with cosy local pub and walks, a Lake District cottage holiday lets you celebrate your way. There is nothing quite like the privacy that you get with Lakelovers’ New Year Lake District breaks. Get the family dancing to Auld Lang Syne; laughter rings out to family games; special memories are created as you enjoy the mesmerising Lake District star display at midnight bringing in the New Year; sink into full relaxation mode snuggling up next to a log burner watching a classic movie or Jools Holland’s Hogmanay; and take your time over a leisurely New Year’s Day breakfast, enjoying the rejuvenation of the mountain and lake landscape straight from your cottage.

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 2018 Goals

This year, if you keep one resolution in 2018 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 2018 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.  

Sociable Celebrations

If you’re wanting to soak up the famous warm Lake District hospitality, then head to the bustle of Bowness, Windermere and Ambleside in 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 and 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, Windermere, Coniston, Derwent or Ullswater for unique New Year memories that you and your loved ones will long remember.

Finest 5 Star Cottages

Are you looking for a celebration you’re sure to remember?

We have the largest collection of VisitEngland 5* gold awarded self-catering cottages in the Lakes so you will find a New Year break that is sure to impress. Book with Lakelovers and you’ll find state-of-the-art entertainments systems and hosting spaces, from cinema and large drawing rooms to iPad controlled lighting and heating. Sky TV packages and games consoles like XBoxes and Wii’s all add to the frivolities that are in store with a Lakelovers New Year’s Eve in the Lake District. Hand-built kitchens, kitted out with the finest appliances and extras like wine coolers make celebrating self-catering style a pleasure. And luxurious designer bathrooms with TVs, statement bathtubs, underfloor heating and super-size bedroom suites with Egyptian cotton, sumptuous furnishings and plenty of dressing space all add to the sense of occasion.

New Year’s Toast

As an alternative to celebrating New Year’s eve in your holiday cottage why not raise a New Year’s toast in a champagne bar, Michelin restaurant or bustling country gastro pub.

If you’re new to Lakelovers you’ll be pleased to discover our Lakelovers Recommends offers, where you can make savings on eating out and local attractions leaving more money for the January Sales.

A New Year in the Lake District is about being with loved ones, relaxing and re-charging the batteries after Christmas festivities. And our self-catering cottages give you flexibility and space, in some of the best scenery in the UK, to do just that. Plus, there’s all the added extra’s like hot tubs and spa facilities.
