#Hibernot this half term in Cumbria and the Lake District, it’s still not too late!

There seems to be a fairly good forecast in the weather in Cumbria and the Lake District for today and the through the week. It is half term and dry weather is not always the order of the day, so early in the year and at this time in the winter so it means why waste it?

Understandably there are still a number of places to stay in the Lake District and Cumbria with availability this year, waiting to see what the weather is set to be like is not a bad thing in February. As everyone awakes from the aftermath of Christmas and a month of austerity in January, February and its longer days make for a welcome return to life, out of winter hibernation. At the end of the day, the hash tag #hibernot is featuring very highly on social media and rightly so. Make the most of the school holidays, beneficial of course to children but so too for parents.
