Why You'll Want to Come Back to the Lake District Again and Again

A good holiday destination is one you’ll want to go back to again and again – whatever the season. You may think of the Lake District as somewhere that’s best visited in summer, but it’s not too shabby in spring, autumn and winter either. Holiday parks are usually open from March until November and after reading this, you’ll want to be coming back to the Lake District all year round.


Spring is when the Lake District reawakens after the winter and when the holiday parks reopen in March, you’ll really see this region come alive. Nothing will get you into the spring-spirit more than a walk through the beautiful green countryside.

And as you get ready for Easter, so does the World of Beatrix Potter. This popular tourist attraction hosts an annual Cumbria-wide Easter egg hunt which runs until all 100 eggs have been found. They’re hidden all over the Cumbrian countryside so start your search as soon as you arrive!


Summer is when the Lake District truly comes into its own because you can witness the spectacular scenery in all its glory; clear, sunny days definitely make the most impressive photos.

Summer also has the best conditions for walking and the most daylight hours so it’s the best time of year to tackle Scafell Pike. You’ll probably need about 8 hours to get to the summit and back down again so you’ll be glad of that extra light.


With so many caravans for sale within the Lake District, buying your own could be the perfect way to enjoy the region all year round. The Lake District is within two hours of Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds so before the winter sets in you could use your caravan in the Lake District for a few autumnal weekend getaways. The changing colours of the leaves in historic market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is truly stunning in this season.

Winters in the Lake District may be chilly but you can still have a great weekend getaway in November at the end of the holiday park season.

Get in the winter spirit with a brisk walk through the region’s impressive scenery, and then warm up with some tasty food in a cosy pub. The Langdale Valley is at the heart of the Lake District, not far from Grasmere, and if you’re looking for somewhere good to eat, our tip is the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. Their delicious homemade leek and potato soup is just the thing the warm you up on a cold winter’s day.
