Snow/weather conditions this w/end

Hello...Coming up for a couple of nights on Sat 4th til Mon 6th, got a bargain room at Travelodge in penrith on Sat night and then onto Watermill at Ings Sunday night (our dog insisted !).

Planning to go to Hawkshead (Xmas Fair) and Keswick and several spots in between.

Just wondering what the roads are like up there at the moment as we have so much snow and Ice here in North Yorks. Can anyone advise. Also we would normally come straight up the A65 from Skipton anyone aware of any problems on this route?

Cheers in advance

All the main roads are open with no problems except Kirkstone Pass.

Cumbria has very little snow compared to the NE but it is likely to be icy as temperatures are dropping.

Very cold -10C Keswick ar 0700. But warmed up to 1C now

Compared to the NE not much snow, light snow in Keswick at present but forecast is reasonably good.

Probably one of the best places to be in England this weekend if you want minimum snow.!

People dont seem to be having problems on the main routes.
