Home » Destinations » First Signs of Spring Hit the Peak District


After the total freeze that most of Britain has seen over the last few weeks, which has included parts of the sea on the south coast freezing, and rivers icing over in some places, visitors and residents alike are being given a new hope. The ice and snow has been thawing and, though we’re definitely not out of the woods yet as far as winter is concerned, there is definitely a glimmer of spring in the distance.

The Peak District, and those living in Peak District cottages, have put up with some of the worst conditions, with temperatures reaching as low as 21 degrees Celsius in places. It’s no wonder that they’re some of the most relieved to see the thaw setting in, as schools and business all shut due to the freezing and treacherous conditions.

This is all good news to tourists too, as though the snow-covered landscape was definitely beautiful, the Peak District during the Spring is even better, as the picture accompanying this post shows. If you’re thinking of taking a Peak District holiday soon, then try to book a time when all of the new flowers have just emerged and you can safely forget about winter. Frozen rivers and seas can all be forgotten about as you look out the window of your warm cottage onto a landscape that’s bursting into life.

Of course, if you can wait a little longer you can enjoy the warm summer sunshine, but discussing the benefits of that is another post for another day.
