Having seen in the New Year, it’s time to think about events in the Lake District for 2019. Enjoying a package break in the Lake District is always exciting. There’s something for everyone and in particular, from festivals to country shows. So why not book a package break in the Lake District and start planning your holiday in Cumbria.

Another of those events in the Lake District not for the faint-hearted is the Windermere Marathon on the 19th May. The gruelling race is worth every step, as you take in the wonderful surroundings of Windermere.

The Great North Swim in Windermere attracts competitors from around the world. The 2019 competition is the weekend of 7th to 9th June. While the shorter swim is great for the novice swimmer, it’s the 10km that has everyone talking.
