One need not be a poet to appreciate the timeless beauty and majesty of the Lake District, much of it virtually unchanged over time and offering the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway.

Foodie Paradise

We are lucky to be spoilt for choice in regards to the food offerings in the Lakes, but you won’t have to travel far to experience top quality dining as all of our hotels and bars have garnered a well-earned reputation. Whether a romantic dinner in our restaurants is what you’re after or a laid back meal in the bar, you can be sure of 5* service and an experience to remember forever.

If the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, you are in luck as unique food shops dot the landscape. The quaint Grasmere Gingerbread Shop, the award-winning Low Sizergh Barn Farm Shop and The 1657 Chocolate House are but a few examples of excellent places to try out.

Romantic Ideas

If you have had your fill of the crowds, head on over to the quieter western shore of Windermere. Pleasant strolls abound, along the shore and beyond, with many beginning from the National Trust-owned mock-Gothic Wray Castle. Pack a picnic as there are plenty of grassy, quiet spots in the area.

Serenade your sweetheart on Windermere, Coniston or Grasmere. Rowing boats can be hired at all of these. If singing isn’t your thing (or rowing for that matter!) hop aboard Windermere or Coniston lake cruises for a relaxing and breathtaking tour of the lake.

Take in a show on the shores of Derwentwater at Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake. Open all year, the theatre boasts a 400-seat main stage and they produce a variety of classic, modern and original plays.

Maybe all that lovey-dovey stuff outlined above is ok for some, but for you maybe love is in the air, quite literally. If love feels less like romantic strolls on the lake shore and more like whizzing through the treetops then you’re in luck. The Lake District has you covered with Go Ape Whinlatter and Go Ape Grizedale.
