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!
New Year’s Day is a time of confusion for many of us: we’re still in the period between Christmas merriment and going back to work, we’re not sure what day it is and we might even be feeling a tad on the rough side after what we drank the night before.
However, it doesn’t have to be like that every year and, if you’re staying in the Lake District, New Year’s Day offers you plenty of options when it comes to things to do.
The Lake District is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, pulling in around 18.5 million visitors a year.
However, many tourists choose to visit the area in the summer months, with the Lakes becoming synonymous with summer boat tours, ice cream trips and sunny (sometimes) hillwalking.
Many people, then, miss out on what the Lakes have to offer during the winter months. From Christmas markets to pantomimes, from boutique shopping to festivals, you can do it all within the heart of the Lake District.
Here, we’re going to give you a rundown of the best that the Lakes has to offer around Christmas and New Year.
We know many of our guests come here to escape from the ‘everyday’ and spend quality time together as a couple. With such beautiful surroundings, it seems unthinkable not to visit the Lake District without going on a walk so we’ve listed some walks that take in some breath-taking views but are also easy to follow…an important one as getting lost could spoil the romance!
The Lake District is well known among keen walkers for having breath-taking views, amazing history and utter freedom. It also has loads of potential for dog walkers, and many walkers have their ever faithful friend beside them on a long trek.
