Its far cry from the tourist-clad, car invaded land of summer where people in their thousands flock to the iconic Cumbrian landscape to lap up the sunshine and vast waters.
Winter here brings something magical, with the promise of snow making the landscape even more tempting. Theres always place to park the car, and theres always a seat in the pub; not to mention scaling the countries most iconic mountains without another human in site. The more adventurous among us seek of the snow covered slopes for winter climbing and a spot of skiing. Perhaps the unforgiving winter world that the Lake District transforms into during its colder months is even more spectacular when dusted with snow, bringing out the true nature and intensity of its wild, cold landscape.
The extensive untouched mountainsides and deep waters are also home to plenty of wildlife. Be you an avid wildlife photographer or merely out to spot your first bird of prey, take to the hills and see what you can find.
Jaw dropping images of the towering mountains reflecting into the glassy lake waters would have you questioning where you are in the world. Isolated within England’s most beautiful, unique landscapes, why would you want a winter break anywhere else?
