Valentine’s Breaks in the Lakes

So often voted as one of the most romantic locations in the UK to visit, the Lake District this year is set to continue the trend.

With Wordsworth and the Romantic Poets in the mid to late 1800’s taking huge inspiration from the Lake District with its overall beauty, lakes, tarns, rivers, hills and wildlife, what bigger confirmation is there. Now it is a place for many an engagement, a proposal on the summit of a fell, in a lovely restaurant, on a cruise on Lake Windermere. It is a place for the dream wedding or honeymoon too.

So as Valentine’s Day approaches, the Lake District is the perfect place for a romantic break. Enjoy romantic strolls, head up one of many fells, take photo memories to treasure forever, take a cruise or hire a boat.

Valentine’s day is a Friday this year, 2020 so there is no excuse not to book a loving break in the Lakes. In and around Lake Windermere is ideal being easy to access from the M6, having the beautiful Lake Windermere to enjoy walking around or cruising down and a choice of hotels and things to do.

At a time when it is “just the two of you” then Newby Bridge at the southern end of Lake Windermere is great location. Just a short walk to Lakeside Pier for Windermere Lake Cruises, just 15 minutes from junction 36 of the M6 yet far more peaceful than Bowness or Ambleside.

The Newby Bridge Hotel has a special Valentine’s break offer for rooms including breakfast on Friday, Saturday or Sunday starting from £78. A special Valentine’s menu is also be served at just £31.95 per person with a choice of tantalising dishes. To book visit
