If you’re thinking about somewhere perfect for you and your loved one to just get away from it all, then you need look no further than the Lake District.
This UNESCO world heritage site is without a doubt one of the most romantic spots in the whole of the UK, and if you need any more persuading, here are just ten reasons why you should book a romantic break and experience it for yourself!
There’s an abundance of romantic walks
One of the nicest things to do with somebody you love is to go for a walk, and the Lake District is one of the best places that you could choose to do so.
There are a great many walks through some of the most picturesque and peaceful landscapes in the country. There’s something for everybody, from gentle lakeside strolls to scaling the tallest peaks, and the Walk Lakes website helpfully rates their routes according to difficulty.
It inspired the poets
The area was much loved by great romantic poets such as William Wordsworth and Samuel Coleridge, and you can visit Dove Cottage which was Wordsworth’s first family home, and the Wordsworth Museum next door. A perfect romantic day out!
You can cruise around Lake Windermere
Lake Windermere is England’s largest lake, and it’s perfect for a romantic day out on the waters. You can choose between a number of different cruises around the lake taking in the stunning views, and even stop off at some of the local attractions along the way!
You can recharge together
If you and your loved one are eager to take some time out from the hustle and bustle of daily life, there is no better place to do so than the Lake District.

You can try something new together
For a bit of an adventure, why not try a new activity together during your romantic break? There is plenty to choose from, with Rookin House offering horse riding, quad biking, fishing, archery, and a great many different fun activities.
If you’re both lovers of the outdoors and somewhat fearless, you could even take on the Via Ferrata at Honister, which uses the original miners track up Fleetwith Pike, and is certainly not for the faint of heart.
Visit some museums
Besides Dove Cottage and the Wordsworth Museum, there are also a great many more wonderful museums to visit in the Lake District.
A fun one to visit as a couple is The Puzzling Place, which is full of puzzles, optical illusions, and many more fascinating and fun things to give your brain a bit of a workout.
Lovers of arts and crafts might enjoy a trip to Blackwell, which puts on exhibitions and displays, as well as events, and even has a tea room.
Head to the theatre
A trip to the theatre is the perfect activity for a romantic evening, and Keswick is home to the Theatre by the Lake. The theatre not only puts on wonderful productions, but is also situated by Derwentwater, and has been hailed as “the most beautifully located and friendly theatre in Britain”, so it’s well worth a visit.

At Broadoaks, we offer romantic packages to make the two of you feel special, which include breakfast in bed, and cream tea in our garden terrace.

It’s cheaper than Paris
When you think about a romantic trip, Paris may be the first destination that pops into most people’s minds.
However although the city of love is a wonderful place to visit, if you are trying to budget you’ll find that the Lake District embodies just as many wonderful romantic qualities.
There is plenty of culture to immerse yourselves in, an abundance of wonderful food, luxurious accommodation, and a romantic history that makes it a wonderful staycation for any couple.
