Cumbria, the Lake District is arguably the ultimate location for love. Wordsworth and many more poets and artists agreed and so do the many thousands of couples who can’t wait to experience the romance, the fresh air and landscape this region has to offer.
So Valentine’s weekend is always an extremely busy time of the year for the romantic capital of the UK. Bookings have been in place for a whole year for some places with couples wanting to make sure they will be staying in the perfect place on the most romantic weekend of the year.
With the fells behind and the coast in front, Grange over Sands has it all for long leisurely walks just the two of you. Nearby Cartmel is a must visit for its lovely shops, and lots of fab places for lunch. Drive, cycle, walk or take the train to Cartmel.
In the evening Grange has a choice of restaurants serving some of the famous food available in this part of Cumbria. Now it’s just about finding somewhere to stay and our top pick is Bay Villa, a luxury bed and breakfast on Main Street. All restaurants and amenities can be walked to yet there are views across Morecambe Bay and beyond. But it is inside this very special 3 room B&B that is the real gem and one that is made for a romantic Valentine’s weekend away. Large rooms, luxury bathrooms, even baths with views, breakfast served in the room and complete relaxation and uninterruption.
