Romantic Breaks in the Lakes

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. 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. Look 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!

Ennerdale is a peaceful lake away from the crowds, perfect to take an intimate stroll. You can walk full circuit around the lake and will likely only see a handful of people.

In the Mountains

Away from the Lakes, for mountain lovers, skim stones by the river at Skelwith Bridge. It is located in the heart of the Lake District outside Ambleside. Enjoy a well-deserved picnic for two and a wild swim at the serene, still Blea Tarn. The tarn is overlooked by the awe-inspiring Langdale Pikes. Or grab your walking boots and anoraks and explore the classic Lakeland landscape of Troutbeck valley. Follow in the footsteps of much-loved Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit and Friends.

You can book a champagne balloon flight, with aerial views of the patchwork countryside from Windermere. They’re perfect at day break, offering a magical experience. Or try 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.

Food in the Lakes

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, 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.
