There’s nothing quite like a Lake District winter - there’s the snow-capped hills, the lakes tinged with ice, and plenty of countryside pubs and restaurants to duck into when your toes get cold. The Lake District is traditionally busy during the summer months, with visitors camping or staying in caravan parks around the area - but during the winter, the national park comes into its own.
If you’ve never heard of the term ‘staycation’, allow us to introduce you. A staycation is a holiday which is every bit as exciting as a vacation – except you don’t actually leave the country. Instead, you use your staycation to explore some of the most beautiful areas of your homeland – the Lake District, the Peak District and the Cotswolds are all popular staycation destinations.
If you’ve ever seen the inspirational landscape of the Lake District for yourself, you’ll know that the region (all 912 square miles of it) is truly worth celebrating and preserving. Millions of people visit Cumbria or embark on Lake District holidays ever year, and it’s of national importance and interest that we keep the rolling hills and quaint villages of the area in prime condition.
