Valentine’s breaks in the Lake District
The Lake District repeatedly tops polls as the country’s most romantic destination, so wouldn’t you just love to enjoy a Valentine’s break here? Glistening lakes, soaring mountains, and tumbling rivers are waiting to be explored by you and your loved one, by foot, by bike, or by boat. Valentine’s breaks in the Lake District are perfect for heading out into the great outdoors and soaking up some fresh air and spectacular scenery. Don your walking boots and set out from one of our Valentine’s Weekend cottages to enjoy a hand-in-hand stroll around Buttermere, hire a rowing boat on Lake Windermere, or climb to the summit of Friars Crag to admire the view that John Ruskin once described as one of the most beautiful in Europe.
Valentine's Day in the Lake District is also a wonderful time to make the most of the atmospheric pubs, chic restaurants and waterside bistros that are peppered throughout some of the national park’s most charming towns and villages, including Keswick, Ullswater, Grasmere and Bowness-on-Windermere. Stay in one of our romantic cottages in the Lake District and you can visit attractions such as National Trust’s Hill Top – Beatrix Potter’s former home; conquer the Via Ferrata together at Honister Slate Mine or tuck into some sweet, crumbly treats at the famous Grasmere Gingerbread Shop - the possibilities are simply endless. And there’s no better way to end your day than cosying up in the warmth of a crackling wood burner or sinking into the soothing bubbles of a luxurious hot tub, which are just a couple of the indulgent features you might find in our self-catering accommodation for two.
