We had vowed never to return to the Lake District after counting 80 people on top of Haystacks one summer weekend, but the lure of a family get together with great walking thrown in was just too much. We spent the week in a gorgeous house just near Shap, in spitting distance (though we didn't) of the Lakes. For some of the party it was an introduction to hill walking - though maybe doing Striding Edge on Helvellyn in the snow was not the most sensible walk for a novice. But they enjoyed it and we had a few days of great hills in the snow and with brilliant views in between some nice family time.
Next stop - a quick southerly Munro at the beginning of May when I will take my camera!
