A Lake District Winter Break by Ullswater

The header photo of this blog shows Ullswater in the summer time. I took it myself three or four years ago during an beautiful week with my wife on a campsite by the lakeside near Pooley Bridge.  January and February are not, of course, the months for camping holidays unless you’re really into toughing it, but that does not mean you have to give up on Ullswater’s possibilities.

During January and February 2011 (except for Valentine’s weekend) Macdonald Hotels have a special offer of  B&B at only £39 per person per night at the Leeming House.  What’s more, if you want to book for dinner also, DBB will be only £49.

This 200-year-old country house is set in more than 20 acres of gardens and woodland on the shore of Ullswater and  has great views over the lake, and yet is only about fifteen minutes drive from the M6. So it’s easily accessible and, just in case you insist on combining business with pleasure, there’s wireless internet available during your stay so you’re not shut off from the wider world.

For all the details, terms and conditions, and to book, click here or on any of  the links in the body of this post.  Don’t delay.  The offer closes on Monday, 20th December.

Oh, and by the way, although I’ve focused here on Ullswater and the Leeming House, when you click through to the Macdonald Hotels site you’ll see that the same offer is available at many other locations around the country.
