Voted as one of the most romantic UK destinations, who wouldn’t want to spend precious time away with their significant other here?

Things to do

Famous for its idyllic lakes, stunning mountains, and countryside views, escape to a peaceful spot with your loved one, or if you’re more adventurous, explore the many hiking routes and take in the picturesque views.

Explore the Lakes…

As we know, love isn’t always smooth sailing, but with the option of a tranquil lake cruise, a relaxing rowing boat experience or even just a picnic on the shores, Lake Windermere offers a calm location to not only appreciate the beautiful natural surroundings, but that special someone.
