The Lake District makes a perfect choice for a Christmas Break, encapsulating the very tradition of Christmas celebrations in its unspoilt landscapes and idyllic cottages. It gives you the freedom to enjoy Christmas away from modern day distractions and foster a feeling of the importance of family in a relaxed and scenic environment. With all the comforts you're used to at home, our Lakeland cottages make the perfect base to enjoy Christmas like it used to be. At Absolute Escapes, we'll do everything we can to give you the perfect Christmas break, in the perfect Cumbrian cottage.

Wherever you are, Christmas is a magical time of year, a time that can only be made more enjoyable by choosing to take a Christmas break in one of the most spectacular landscapes in the country. Imagine calling into one of the bustling towns of Keswick or Ambleside for last minute presents and locally produced provisions, before returning to a cosy cottage set in the midst of rolling farmland with views over the misty fells. Then, waking on Christmas morning to look over the same view, with white frost clinging to the trees, before opening presents with your loved ones and enjoying your Christmas in tranquillity.

A Lake District break at this special time of year will conjure up images of your perfect winter wonderland, and a perfect place to unwind over the festive season. Our well equipped self-catering cottages have everything required to enjoy a traditional Christmas, while the region boasts many fine restaurants where local and organically produced food and drink is prepared by top chefs.

If you're thinking of getting away over the Christmas period, make sure you spend your Christmas Break in a Lakeland cottage and spirit yourself away to a world of tradition, comfort and scintillating scenery.

We have many cottages available at Christmas and New Year.
