Plan your romantic getaway to the Lake District

Paris or Venice might spring to mind when you think of romantic holiday destinations, but if you’re thinking of getting away with the one you love, why not visit the Lake District? It’s cheaper, closer and you’ll get brownie points for originality!

Over the years, the Lake District has played host to William Wordsworth, Samuel Coleridge and many other romantic writers, who have been inspired by the natural beauty of this gorgeous part of the world.

Visit in the summer months to make the most of the outdoor activities on offer – hiking, trekking and fell-walking all offer great opportunities to spend some quality time together in a romantic setting. If you’re thinking of popping the question, what better way to do it than on top of a beautiful, windswept hill, looking out over the picturesque Lakes and surrounding countryside?

If you or your significant other has an interest in nature, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife too. Or if you’re both whiskey drinkers, a trip to the Lakes Distillery is sure to go down a treat.

Visit the Lakes during winter time and you’ll still find plenty to do – cosy up to your beau in a traditional pub in front of a roaring log fire, or take a bracing walk in the hills.

If you fancy a romantic getaway to the Lake District, you’ll find top-notch accommodation at Borrowdale Gates four-star hotel, in the heart of Lakeland. As well as beautifully finished rooms and an enviable location, you’ll find an AA Rosette restaurant on site that’s perfect for intimate meals for two!
