February is the month of love and what better way to feel the love than with a getaway to the Lake District?
The Lakes is arguably the most romantic place in the UK (we certainly think so anyway!) and there are so many things you can do with your other half to celebrate your love together.
If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in a beautiful setting, take a look at our room choices here at Lakes Lodge. While we offer something for everyone, our superior rooms certainly have that special sparkle if you’re looking for somewhere extraordinary to stay.
You can choose from The Bluebird Suite, The Hilltop Suite, The Daffodils Suite and The Ruskin Suite. All feature king size Sealey beds which are manufactured locally to the highest standard, with contemporary décor by local interior designer Sarah Nielsen, a flat screen TV and DVD player and free high speed wi-fi access.
If you’re venturing out and about during your stay in the Lake District, we think the view from Friars Crag is worth taking the trip to Keswick. A favourite of John Ruskin, he once said Keswick was a place almost too beautiful to live in. A stunning setting in any weather, from Friars Crag you can sit on the bench and gaze out across Derwentwater and enjoy one of the most magnificent views in the Lake District.
Of course, there are a number of lovely walking trails and superb spots in the Lakes – in fact, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to spectacular scenery and enjoyable walks. As well as Friars Crag, our other favourite romantic spots include Buttermere, Loweswater, Colwith Falls in Elterwater, Ennerdale Water, and Blea Tarn in the Langdale Valley.
During your trip, you could enjoy a decadent afternoon and treat yourselves to one of the many fabulous locations across the Lakes that do a wonderful afternoon tea. Some of our favourites include Rothay Manor (Ambleside), Sharrow Bay (Ullswater), Gillam’s (Ulverston), Holbeck Ghyll and Linthwaite House (both Windermere).
If you would like a souvenir of your romantic getaway, Love the Lakes is a small chain (with shops in Keswick and Bowness) that sells beautiful Lake District themed gifts. Everything for sale is produced in Cumbria, and you can pick up all sorts of delights, including candles and home fragrance, toiletries such as bath oils and soaps, tasty tipples like local vodka and gin, and gorgeous jewellery and accessories.
