New Year Made Easy the Lake District Way

Welcome 2016 in with open arms, an abundance of fresh air and the warmest of hospitality by choosing the Lake District to see it in.

The focus by most people of solely New Years Eve night brings pressure on having a good time in those few hours and often the issue of how to get home. Booking a short break is an excellent way to see the New Year in and to make the most of the precious end to the festive period. After all, there’s a free day off or two to take advantage of. Even more so this year as New Years Day, a Bank Holiday, falls on a Friday so a lot of people won’t be back at work Monday January 4. It just shows, it’s always worth seeing which days Christmas and New Year fall on to take maximum advantage!

Windermere and Bowness are both fabulous and fun packed places to see in the New Year. Always plenty to see and do with cruises up and down the lake, walking and lots of lovely places for coffee or a pint of real ale.
