As England’s largest National Park, the Lake District really is an inspiring place to visit. Set amongst some of the country’s finest scenery you can enjoy a wide range of attractions and activities from visiting the home of Peter Rabbit and Friends and indulging in the famous Grasmere Gingerbread to climbing majestic mountains and windsurfing on Lake Windermere. There’s lots going on in the Lake District this winter from Christmas markets and ice skating to festive fayres and winter walks.
The New Forest is magical in the winter with the landscape dramatically transforming and all the pubs lighting up their log fires; there’s every reason to get outside and explore! Discover this ancient landscape of woodland, heath, farmland and pretty little villages and get active in the 150 miles of car-free trails either on foot, by bike or on horseback. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen including ponies, deer, and birds of prey and to keep the family amused there are many wonderful attractions including the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, the Longdown Activity Farm and Paultons Park.
For a holiday that’s full of peace and tranquillity, Exmoor National Park fits the bill perfectly.
