Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and with it falling on a Tuesday this year, those love birds out there can book a romantic break away either the weekend before, the weekend after or both!
The Lake District and Cumbria, sort of officially and most definitely growing in recognition, as being the most romantic county in the UK due to the landscape, the poetry and artist heritage and of course, a plentiful choice of romantic places to stay. In fact, in the recent nationwide Tripadvisor Travellers Choice Awards, 5 Lake District hotels were named in the top 25.
But with such high profile mentions of the Lake District and Cumbria being romantic it is inevitable accommodation over Valentine’s weekend is booking up fast. Everyone has a different idea in terms of the location for a Valentine’s break. Some may have had memorable, past breaks in areas such as Ambleside and Windermere and like the lake activities and the choice of fell walks.
Others may prefer a slightly quieter place to stay and that is where a small town such as Grange over sand fits in just perfectly. Everything is within reach including the honeypot areas of Windermere (the southern head of Lake Windermere is just 7 miles away) and Ambleside yet a far more relaxed and peaceful atmosphere can be enjoyed. Visit Holker Hall and have a walk around the rounds, take a trip to nearby Cartmel, a haven for couples, or walk along the prom and take in the fresh see air with uninterrupted views of Morecambe Bay.
With a choice of places to drink and dine in Grange itself and in nearby Cartmel, whether it’s a formal meal and dressing up or a cosy pub meal, there’s something for everyone. Looking at accommodation and the luxury B&B Bay Villa on Main Street has one room remaining for the Valentine’s weekend, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th with some extra special bits included. The special romantic getaway includes breakfast in your room at a time to suit with the essential Valentine’s extras of Champagne, chocolates and flowers. The price is £300 for the 2 nights and is bookable via http://www.bayvilla.net or by telephoning 015395 36793.
Give the gift of love in the Lake District this Valentine’s!
