Christmas in the Lakes

Sit by the open fire with a glass of hot punch, listen to live choirs, take a peaceful stroll in the fresh air to spot some wildlife or enjoy a steamer cruise. Find a unique gift and shop in style - just five minutes outside of Keswick you can browse for gifts next to Derwent Water with a view of the Lakeland fells dusted with snow. Here's what a Lake District Christmas has to offer.
