The Lake District has been crowned Britain’s top destination of choice for a winter staycation.
The region beat out the likes of Devon, the Yorkshire Dales and the Cotswolds in a new study from holiday parks firm Park Leisure.
With scenic walking trails, cosy pubs, charming cottages and plenty of fun indoor attractions and museums, it will come as no surprise to locals why the Lake District eaily fits the bill.
It comes as more than a fifth of Brits are planning a winter break this year, according to the research, with 6.7 million people preferring winter to summer for holidays because it’s quieter without peak season crowds.

Devon and Cornwall took the second and third spots respectively, despite typically being associated with summer holidays due to their beautiful sandy beaches and waterfront attractions, MirrorOnline reports.
However, come winter there’s ample opportunity to explore those awe-inspiring coastal walks and beaches, without having to face the summer crowds.
While two seaside resorts made the top three locations, countryside escapes were still the top choice for Brits, with the Yorkshire Dales, Cotswolds and Scottish Highlands all also proving a hit with holidaymakers.
Meanwhile, cities were also a favourite with London, Edinburgh and York all making the cut – no doubt thanks to their Christmas markets, they’re ideal for those looking for a festive getaway.
