A Lake District winter break is the perfect opportunity to explore the area and take in some of the amazing views that our local landscape has to offer. And even though it’s a little chilly at times, there are plenty of places to warm up and enjoy a seasonal treat after your adventures.
Here are our top five spots for winter warmers in the Lake District:
1. Room service
Our own room service menu is a great option for those of you who enjoy a winter adventure – you can head back to your Suite and choose something tasty to enjoy in the privacy of your room. Add in a bubbly air bath for two and a cosy up on the sofa and your Lake District winter break is close to perfection.
2. The Pig, Windermere
Discover this cosy bar and restaurant specialising in all things pork. The meat is sourced locally and we highly recommend the hog roast, which is cooked daily on the rotisserie. In spite of the name, there are loads of non-pork dishes to tempt you. And we love their ‘skinny champagne’ – bubbles without the calories.
3. The Fizzy Tarte, Windermere
Add a classy Windermere venue to your winter adventure with a visit to The Fizzy Tarte. This stylish cocktail bar in an elegant setting adds a splash of baileys, rum or whisky in your choice of classic or white hot chocolate – what a luxurious way to warm up and indulge yourself.
4. Country Hut, Bowness
Be sure to stop by the Country Hut in Bowness. A cute, wood-panelled café bar that’s ideal for a quick cuppa or hot chocolate. Equally, it’s a lovely place for a more leisurely stop involving cocktails and a cheese and meat platter too!
5. The Albert, Bowness
Two words: Sunday Lunch. Head down to Bowness for one of the best roasts that you’ll find locally.
