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.

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.
