Christmas at Brockhole

Date: 4 Nov 2019 - 1 Jan 2020

There’s nothing quite like the beautiful Lake District at Christmas, sparkly lakeshores, snow-capped mountains and frost glistening in the winter sun. Well, that’s just what we can see whilst looking through the windows of our stunning 19th Century White House and taking a sip from a festive spiced latte! This December really is the perfect time to pay a visit to Brockhole, we’re offering FREE parking for everyone right up to Christmas Eve and not only that, for the first time you can choose your perfect Christmas tree right here (and all proceeds go back into the Lake District National Park!)
