Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Here is our handy guide to spending Valentine’s weekend in one of the most romantic locations in the UK, Windermere.
Wordsworth and the many other poets that made up the romantic movement undeniably knew their stuff when it came to telling the world in their prose about the Lake District. That was over 200 years ago and the Lake District, and especially Windermere, is still synonymous with romance now. Thousands of couples each year choose the Lake District to propose, for the big day itself, subsequent anniversaries and romantic weekend breaks.
Back to Valentine’s, February 14th and it’s a Sunday in 2016. Windermere is gearing up for this very special weekend. Take a cruise down the lake, a leisurely stroll, a romantic fell walk, browse the luxury gift shops, enjoy a romantic afternoon tea or a drink by a real log fire in one of the country pubs. It’s not hard to understand why romantic couples find Windermere wonderful.
But where to stay is the most crucial decision. Windermere is very lucky to have the widest choice of accommodation in any of the Lake District regions. Some may choose bustling Bowness but we think Valentine’s is the time for quiet, undisturbed opulence. Our tip for where to stay is the 5 star Lindeth Fell Country House. Just a mile from Bowness, a 15 minute walk, this haven and unspoilt hideaway is romance personified. Choose from 12 double rooms in a country house set in its own 7 acre landscaped garden estate with private tarn and the elevated position means Lake Windermere and the surrounding fells are in full view. They have created a special Valentine’s weekend package too, full of fizz, flowers and fabulous food with price starting from £435 per couple.
