Where to spend Christmas in the Lake District?
Windermere Lake Cruises
Taking a cruise on Lake Windermere is wonderful any time of year. The Santa Specials may have already sold out, but if you’ve booked a romantic spa break in Windermere, that may be a good thing.
Lakeside & Haverthwaite Steam Railway
Although the steam season is officially over for the year, there’s still time for one last journey. This weekend there’s a Santa Special train ride too. Although, just like the Windermere Lake Cruises a trip on the railway is a wonderful day all year round.
Blackwell Arts and Craft House
If you really want to get into the festive spirit, Christmas in the Lake District comes alive at the Blackwell Arts and Craft House. Although this is one the adults can appreciate as part of their package break in the Lake District. While you’re there, you can pick up some last minute Christmas presents.
Enjoy a night down the pub!
There are plenty of choices where to go for a pint near your Windermere Spa Suite. The Crafty Baa has recently been awarded the prestigious AA Award for Best Pub in England. Let alone best pub in the Lake District! Although that’s not to say it hasn’t some strong competition.
The Drunken Dark in Ambleside is ideal for a pub lunch following a walk around Tarn Howe. Then there’s always the Tower Bank Arms, playing homage to Beatrix Potter. Alternatively, crack open a bottle of bubbly and celebrate Christmas in the Lake District in style.
Beauty Treatments in Windermere
While you’re on a package break in the Lake District, book into the Aphrodite’s Treatment Rooms. Ready for some pampering at the hands of Natalie, our resident therapist. Where you can enjoy one of the best massages in Windermere, or learn some new techniques in time for Christmas.
Package Breaks in the Lake District
Book yourself a last-minute package break in Windermere with Aphrodite’s Lodge. Alternatively stay at a Windermere Boutique Spa Suite, as part of the main hotel. If you’re not going away until the new year, no need to worry – the Winter Pamper Package is available until March 2019!
