Beautifully smooth and distinctively dark greeny-grey, you can find homewares, from door knobs to cheese boards, plus garden benches and ornaments, or order a custom-made house-name or number. T he worst of the rainfall is usually reserved for the beginning and end of winter, but heavy showers can strike in the Lake District at practically any time of year. Heavy snow is common in midwinter, especially between November and February, when some rural roads become impassable. T he busiest season is between June and August, when prices rocket, car parks are packed and traffic jams are frequent.
Better to visit in the shoulder months: in April and May, when the weather is generally settled and sunny, or in September and October, when the woodlands blaze with autumnal colour. There are also tourist offices in local towns including Windermere, Ambleside and Coniston.

The red squirrel is native to the woodlands of The Lake District and one of the few remaining areas where the animal can still be seen and found. Red squirrels are an endangered species that have been suffering a steady decline in numbers since the grey squirrel arrived in Britain. Although grey squirrels are increasing their population, there are still large numbers of red squirrels found within northern areas of the National Park.
When faced with competition from grey squirrels red squirrels survive best in large numbers in coniferous woodland. Red squirrels need a constant supply of diverse food such as seeds, nuts, berries, cones, buds, shoots, flowers and occasionally insects. The length of a red squirrel is — mm long with a tail of up to mm.
Their tails act as a heat source in the winter to aid their balance and communication. Active during the daytime the squirrels make nests in a tree fork or a hollow.
The nests are made using soft hair, moss and dried grass. Red squirrels are quite elusive and are most likely to be see in Lake District woodland, in particular Whinlatter Forest and Dodd Wood.

Experience the day to day life of William Wordsworth with a visit to Dove Cottage. A few months after visiting the lakes Wordswortrh set up home in the village.
While living at Dove Cottage Wordsworth wrote many of his most loved poems while his sister Dorothy wrote her festinating journal. Whether you see snowdrops in the winter, daffodils and bluebells in the spring, an abundance of wildflowers through the summer and the colour changing of leaves in the autumn, the garden is a beauty spot in all seasons. A place of peace and inspiration Wordsworth would often compose poetry outdoors. The cottage today has been turned into a museum open to visitors giving a vivid impression of what day to day life was like for Wordsworth.
