Lake District Christmas Gifts – Great Reductions

by David Murray on 8 December 2011

in Books, DVDs, Jigsaws

Here are three special gift suggestions with substantial price reductions. These, and other items on the Amazon.co.uk site, will either save you money or enable you to buy something better than expected with what you intended to spend.

Houses of The Lake District is a new, beautifully produced volume that will delight any lover of the Lake District. From Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall to Blackwell, Dove Cottage and Hutton-in-the-Forest the special buildings among the Cumbrian mountains and fells are pictured and described.

Christopher Holliday and Clive Boursnell (author and photographer respectively) are to be congratulated on filling an important gap in the recent literature of the region. The houses themselves, along often with the families that built and have lived in them, are shown against the wonderful setting of this most beautiful corner of England.

And just look at the price saving on Amazon – 31% off!

Wainwright Walks, Series One & Two [DVD boxed set] with Julia Bradbury. These are no longer new, but retain their interest over the years. Whether or not you saw the original broadcasts these programmes will give hours of pleasure.

£13.99, or there’s a special deal offering this along with Julia’s Coast to Coast and Railway walks.

This Lake District Jigsaw Puzzle is just one of many available on the Amazon site. Assembling these beautiful scenes will give hours of enjoyment, especially on dark winter evenings, wetting the appetite for Lake District walks in the Spring and Summer – or if you’re the hardy type (and properly equipped!) even in the winter months.
