How to spend Christmas with the kids

There’s a hint of cinnamon, spice, and everything nice and festive in the air. The Lakeland Fells are coated in a dusting of snow, primary schools are hosting nativities, and mince pies fill the pantry. Christmas in the Lakes is truly like no other, with local talent showcasing their work, craft sessions, and special dinners, there’s plenty to do with the kids.
