Christmas Inspiration at Brockhole
There’s nothing quite like the Lake District at Christmas, twinkly lake shores, snow capped mountains and frost glistening in the winter sun – and that’s just what we can see from the window of our 19th century White House here at Brockhole!
This year, we have really put our Christmas hats on – our café and shop have been visited by some very special elves who have decorated in style with rustic reindeers, crafty garlands and fabulous fairy lights.
Also just as a little Merry Christmas from us we’re offering free parking every Friday in December!

As always our calendar of festive events has something on offer for the whole family this December, from our exclusive Christmas wreath making and lunch on 1st Dec through to a bit of yule tide magic at Astral Circus and back by popular demand, the return of the much loved huskies!
