Romantic Cottages Lake District

Romantic Lake District holidays

Famous poets, writers and artists have been falling in love with the beauty of the Lake District for centuries and today it can melt even the most no-nonsense of hearts. Said to be one of the most romantic places in the whole of the world, it’s unsurprising that couples return time and again to our Lake District cottages for 2 for a perfect romantic getaway. Whether you’re celebrating a special date or anniversary, planning on popping ‘the’ question or simply looking for some quality time in the hills, the Lake District makes the ideal destination when planning a romantic scenic break or an action-packed adventure with a loved one.

Adrenalin-fuelled honeymooners and thrill-seeking couples certainly won’t be disappointed after a day of high ropes, nets and exposure on a Via Ferrata course at Honister Slate Mine – just make sure you cling to the ropes and not each other as the adrenalin starts pumping!
Create long lasting memories with an exhilarating afternoon taking on a 4×4 challenge, as offered by Coniston-based Kankku, which takes you off road and off the beaten track and is perfect for daredevil couples.

Sitting on ‘England’s rooftop’, Scarfell Pike, sharing a celebratory Kendal Mint Cake and a flask of tea, or conquering several Wainwright’s together; these are special moments only the Lake District can give you and you’ll be sure to treasure.
And imagine returning to your own secluded Lake District retreat, with superior facilities and luxurious comfort, set amidst idyllic Lakeland scenery.

There’s so many romantic things to do in the Lake District, it’s no wonder it’s a top destination for romantic breaks in the UK and our Lake District cottages for 2 are best placed for you to get the most out your romantic break away.
The Lake District is renowned for its connection with Romantic poets, painters and writers of which the landscape inspired many a famous works.

Romantic poet, William Wordsworth, famously wrote about the daffodils in Grasmere and what could be more romantic than wandering through picture-perfect pastures, strolling through chocolate-box villages and visiting the homes and landmarks painted and described by some of the literary greats, such as John Ruskin, Samuel Coleridge, Arthur Ransome and probably one of the most famous and well know, Beatrix Potter.
And if doing very little is what you’re looking for from a romantic getaway then the Lake District is just the tonic!

Surprise a loved one with a peaceful picnic at ‘Surprise view’ near Ashness bridge, looking down onto Derwentwater, near Keswick in the North Lakes.

Following a romantic meal, watch the setting sun and night sky from your rural retreat or stroll hand-in-hand along the pebbly lakeland shore, resting for a romantic embrace or to photograph the moment on one of the quiet jetties.
To escape the crowds for some blissful seclusion and time on your own, why not take to a boat for a truly intimate way of enjoying the beautiful Lake District scenery.
“. . .there is scarcely anything finer than the view from a boat in the centre of Crummock-water,” wrote Wordsworth.

And a boat ride on the quiet waters of Coniston Water, where you can hire a romantic rowing boat, or indeed a canoe to truly test your companionship, is a must!

For a memorable place to pop ‘the question’ head to the shores of Ennerdale, in the far Western Lakes, where former US President Bill Clinton famously proposed!. Ennerdale is a peaceful lake away from the crowds, perfect to take an intimate stroll, where you can walk full circuit around the lake and will likely only see a handful of people.

Away from the Lakes, for mountain lovers, skim stones by the river at Skelwith Bridge, in the heart of the Lake District just outside Ambleside; enjoy a well-deserved picnic for two and perhaps a wild swim at the serenely still Blea Tarn, overlooked by the awe-inspiring Langdale Pikes; or grab your walking boots and anoraks and explore the classic Lakeland landscape of Troutbeck valley, following in the footsteps of much-loved Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit and Friends.

A champagne balloon flight, giving aerial views of the patchwork countryside below, which can be booked from Windermere and are best at day break, offer a truly magical experience; or a British afternoon tea for two in the world famous Sharrow Bay or a pampering Valentine’s spa treatment.  All are sure ways to impress when booking a romantic break away. Even when the weather is not at its best, the Lake District, with its cosy country pubs and open fires, provides the perfect romantic hideaway.  In bustling Lakeland towns, such as Ambleside and Keswick, you can watch the latest films and enjoy stand-out theatre performances and local music events.

If food is the way to your loved ones heart, you’re sure to impress with a romantic break in Cartmel, in the very South Lakes.  Here you’ll be treated with a range of culinary delights from a Michelin star restaurant, L’Enclume, to the 450 year old Cavendish Arms coaching inn, who serve the award-winning Higginson’s meat. Then there’s world-famous ‘Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding’ as well as Cumbria’s latest microbrewery, Unsworth’s Yard Brewery, to add to the culinary mecca that Cartmel has become.
