The Lake District is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, pulling in around 18.5 million visitors a year.
However, many tourists choose to visit the area in the summer months, with the Lakes becoming synonymous with summer boat tours, ice cream trips and sunny (sometimes) hillwalking.
Many people, then, miss out on what the Lakes have to offer during the winter months. From Christmas markets to pantomimes, from boutique shopping to festivals, you can do it all within the heart of the Lake District.
Here, we’re going to give you a rundown of the best that the Lakes has to offer around Christmas and New Year.

While a summer wedding is certainly a wonderful thing, many people simply do not consider a winter wedding. They are that little bit less common, but in fact, a winter wedding can be simply magical, as we have seen many times right here at Broadoaks.
To give you a little something to think about as we do head into the colder months, here at 5 reasons you should consider opting for a winter wonderland wedding.
Autumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness; when the world turns red and gold, mornings are crisp and log fires mesmerise. Mulled wine and blazing fires bring welcome warmth to the reception and a firework fountain finale adds extra sparkle and drama to the close of the first day of the rest of your lives together.
If you have recently got engaged, you may be deciding where you’d like to tie the knot right now. Well call us biased, but we think that the Lake District is the perfect place for you and your loved one to say your vows for a whole host of reasons.
