The Lake District doesn't have the best reputation for weather, but this beautiful part of the world really shines during the winter months. You'll find that in addition to the breathtaking scenery on show all year round, the snow-capped hills and mountains add a real other-worldly feel to the area around Windermere.
There's just as much to do here during the cooler months of the year as there is in summer; don't let a chill in the air put you off striking out on the area's beautiful paths, whether you're walking or cycling. It's important that you're careful about checking the weather forecast and choosing less treacherous paths at this time of year, but the pay off is spectacular.
You'll get the same amazing views as during the summer months, but with more rugged beauty and snowy vistas added into the equation.
Chilly weather also makes getting back to your B&B in Windermere even more of a treat - you'll enjoy snuggling up in the warmth more if you've been hiking or walking in the cold.
For a luxury B&B that will make your evenings as enjoyable as your days in the Lake District, check out Hawksmoor Lakeland Guest House. A secure cycling shed and boot room make it the perfect choice for adventurers, and a very cycling friendly hotel, whether it's just for the one stop on your ride or your base for an entire winter getaway.
