Catherine shared a series of snaps from their time at Another Place Hotel.
The contemporary retreat can be found on the shores of Ullswater.
In one of the photos, Catherine cradled her bump as she held hands with son Alfie.
A second shot showed the six-year-old swimming in a pool, while another was taken as hubby Tom emerged from a lake.
Catherine also posted one of herself in a patterned swimming costume.
She captioned the post: “Last weekend we fell in love with #thelakedistrict all over again!! It’s always been such a special place for us as a family. We had much needed rest and family time.
“Can’t recommend our hotel enough @anotherplacehotels – so brilliant for families. Not an ad- but praises where due!!
“Amazing service and food, loads of outdoor activities (which we just love!) in the most beautiful setting.”
Catherine added: “I’ve been so busy this year – and very grateful for it! I adore my job. But this was needed and felt so special #familytime #myboys #anotherplace.”
This was needed and felt so special
It didn’t take long for followers to comment, with one fan saying: “You look beautiful, absolutely glowing!”
A second wrote: “Beautiful photos! I love the lake District! You work extremely hard time out is exactly what you need! Glad you had a great time.”
In addition, Helen Flanagan gushed: “Beautiful family.”
When is Catherine due?
The star is expecting her second child – a baby girl – in April next year.
She announced her baby news back in October, saying: “We feel so lucky. When we found out, I just burst into tears.”
However, Catherine was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum (extreme sickness) shortly after finding out.
Speaking to Hello! Magazine, she explained: “It is not like morning sickness as you feel sick all day.
“It is the same thing Kate [Middleton] had, although I have not been as extreme as her. I was put on medication and that has been a godsend as I feel so much better.”
Despite her sickness, Catherine is still managing to work out seven times a week during her pregnancy.
