My wife and I are visiting my parents in South Wales over Christmas. We'll have a new born baby in tow (3 month old).
We're planning on stopping in Birmingham to watch a Premier League game on the 28th December and then drive upto the Lake District early on the 29th. Plan is to stay 3 nights and return back to South Wales on the 1st Jan.
The weather will be what the weather will be and we'll pack accordingly. We're aware the potential exists for poor conditions on the M6 approaching the area.
Anyhow, it's been 20 years since I was last in the area, trip from Uni and we camped near Coniston Water.
Curious on recommendations? Stay 3 nights in one place and do day trips? Or book three separate hotels in different areas. What would be your recommended locations?
Obviously a fair few places will be closed during this time. I checked and Dove Cottage will be open. Hill Top won't be (and I'm not sure about Beatrix Potter World, maybe if the kid was older). I imagine we'll try a few short hikes but with the baby we won't be doing anything more than a mile or two (we're used to 10/15 mile hikes normally). No real expectations, just have a fun break from the parents, see some scenery, drink some good beer and eat some good food.
Thanks for any advice.
