It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the beautiful Lake District is one of the most festive destinations in the UK at Christmas. Crackling log fires, incredible winter scenery and cheery locals who love getting in to the yuletide spirit!
Winter is here, bringing with it shorter days and evenings drawing in from mid afternoon. Not that we mind at the Pheasant - it's an excuse to light the log fires and curl up on our sofas with a hot drink (or a hot toddy!)
Winter at The Pheasant means shorter days and dark evenings. But while your sightseeing hours may be more limited you can enjoy a celestial activity when the sun goes down on a clear night – spectacular star gazing.
From painters and philosophers to poets and authors – the Lake District's natural beauty has inspired many great minds through the ages. Follow in their footsteps at one of the region's creative activities and workshops and craft something special from your time in the Lakes.
