A Lakeland winter brings out the best in the Lake District landscape. The onset of cold weather does see fewer people exploring the hills and mountains but this is when the mix of winter walks and warm Lakeland pubs and inns come into their own. From the comfort of your cottage, Lakeland Inn or country house hotel watch the weather transform the mountains and lakes into a winter wonderland.
If you simply want to experience the peace and tranquillity of the Lakes in winter there are lots of low level walks which meander through woodlands, along lake shores and beneath impressive snow topped summits. These offer a flavour of this magical season and there is something for all abilities. Just wrap up warm, check the weather before setting off and make sure you have a map and a Lakeland pub at the end of your winter adventure.
