5 Reasons to Spend Christmas in the Lake District

Christmas is a magical time of year, and here at Windermere Marina Village, we think that there is nowhere better to spend it than the Lake District. While Windermere is beautiful all year round, there is something particularly special about the festive season.

Here are just a few of the reasons why you should stay in our luxury self-catering accommodation in the Lake District December around the festive season.

1 – Dreaming of a White Christmas

We’re dreaming of a white Christmas, and when you’re visiting Windermere, you’re likely to see some snow, even if it is from afar!

Windermere is surrounded by hills, crags, howes and fells, many of which will get a generous dusting of snow at this time of year, making for a fantastic view. Lake Windermere is a great place to go to enjoy the festive views – just make sure to wrap up warm!

2 – Warm and Cosy Accommodation

What can be better than relaxing on the sofa in a warm and cosy cottage in the winter? All of our apartments look out over the marina, giving you a great wintery view while you’re sat in the warmth of your luxury apartment or cottage.

Kitted out with everything you may need, you’ll feel right at home at Windermere Marina Village over the festive period.

If you’re hoping to enjoy Christmas with the whole family, we have apartments that sleep up to 10 people, so you can surround yourself with the ones you love.

3 – Festive Food

One of the best things about Windermere is the many fantastic pubs and restaurants in the area. Of course, you can find delicious local food all year round, but at Christmas time, you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of festive treats.

Check out our recent blog about eating and drinking in Windermere for some ideas on where to visit, or simply go out and explore the town – you’re never far from a great eatery in Windermere!

4 – A Tranquil Setting

If you’re hoping to get away from the hustle and bustle at Christmas time, you’ll be able to find a tranquil and relaxing setting in Windermere. Of course, you can head into the village to experience the excitement of Christmas, but Windermere and the Lake District also offer plenty of opportunities to get some peace and quiet.

Whether you take a walk or a trip out onto the lake, you can find that tranquillity you’re looking for at Christmas.

5 – Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

We’ve already mentioned the delicious delicacies you can enjoy in Windermere, but you’ll also find plenty of places to enjoy a little festive tipple!

You can visit the onsite Boathouse Bar & Restaurant or explore the local area to find an establishment that suits your mood.

Take a look at our recent blog, ‘A Lake District Beer Guide’ to find out more about the wonderful local brews you could enjoy while you’re in the area.
