With frost crunching underfoot, low winter sun making the moss glow green and waterfalls swollen and spectacular with rainfall, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the beautiful Borrowdale and Buttermere valleys.
In Borrowdale, there are easy-to-follow way-marked trails through
Atlantic oak woodland and along the shore of Derwentwater.
Choose from an amble around Cockshot Wood that starts beside the National Trust’s
lakeside shop (ideal for any final Christmas shopping) or a walk in Great Wood, where

you might spot red squirrels and even roe deer. Great Wood car park is just a mile outside Keswick.
If you fancy a touch of drama, head for Buttermere and experience the exhilarating rush of whitewater hurling itself into space. Sourmilk Gill thunders down almost 400m of steep fellside in one headlong cascade through the trees, making it the longest drop waterfall in the Lake District.
There is a pitched footpath beside Sourmilk Gill leading to Bleaberry Tarn but it’s very steep and the stones can be extremely slippery, so you might prefer to take in the scene from the bridge below as part of a walk around the lake.
Or, you could make for Loweswater and follow the path through Holme Wood to the base of Holme Force or ‘Grey Mare’s Tail’, a series of falls that spout from moss- covered rock arches to form mysterious pools.
