Christmas in the Lake District
Celebrate Christmas in the Lake District on a festive day out. Discover cosy houses decorated for the season and family trails through frosty winter gardens. Tuck into festive food and drinks, enjoy a refreshing winter walk and pick up special gifts for your loved ones away from the hustle and bustle of the high street.
Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a Victorian Christmas at Townend on Wednesdays throughout December. Step inside this traditional Lakeland farmhouse lit with roaring fires, explore cosy rooms decorated for the season and smell the air of Christmas around you.
A roaring fire, a house decked with greenery, a wintery walk with views of snow topped fells. Take a moment to slow down and appreciate the simple things at Allan Bank. Keep an eye out for the red squirrels running to and from the feeders on the lawn, make a start on those Christmas crafts, help yourself to alcohol-free mulled punch and listen out for live music on selected days. Open Friday – Sunday throughout December.
This year dogs can join in the festive fun at Fell Foot. Treat your pooch to a romp around Fell Foot Park before donning your Christmas jumpers and hats for professional dog photographer Shaun Barr to capture that fun image of you and your dog, to share with friends and family. £10 per group, a high-res image will be emailed to you following the event.
We think winter is the best time to visit Aira Force - the waterfall is at its best after a spate of rain. Wrap up warm, feel the spray and blow away the winter cobwebs as it roars down the 65-foot drop. Spot fir trees decorated by local school children, grab a hot drink to enjoy as you explore or finish your festive adventure with a meal or snack in the tearoom. 13-15 December, 4.30-7pm.
