Whether it’s romantic ideas for Christmas or a Valentines break toward the end of winter, our hot tub breaks take some beating! After all, spending time with a loved one in the Lake District is somewhat special. Yet, when it comes to those winter months, it may be cold outdoors but you can still go ahead and make a romantic gesture.
Here we take a look at some romantic ideas for the Lake District in Winter:
- Fine-Dining Restaurants
- Local Pubs and Bars
- Festive Markets
- Winter Walks
- Night at the Movies
- Romantic Log Cabins
It doesn’t have to be winter to make the most of an abundance of fancy restaurants for a romantic dinner. However, you’re more likely to find a last-minute table at some of the more exclusive eateries. How about the ever-popular Francine’s or the Michelin Starred Gilpin Spice?
Local Bars and Cosy Pubs
In the heat of summer, the various country pub gardens can become busy, when all you really want to do is have a quiet night out. There are plenty of choices within walking distance to our spa hotels in Windermere. With the likes of the open-fire at the Royal Oak or the award-winning Crafty Baa some personal favourites.
Mulled Wine at a Festive Market
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a festive market! While a couple may be cancelled due to Covid, there’s still the Victorian Fayre in Keswick, Christmas at Brockhole and Holker Hall. Many of which will have a stall serving mulled wine to keep you warm as you take a look around.
Take a Walk Under the Stars
It can get a little chilly at times in the Lake District during winter, so make sure you wrap up warm for those romantic walks. Although you don’t have to venture too far! As an early evening stroll along the shores of Lake Windermere will still be under a star-filled sky on a clear night. Especially when you head away from the main roads and find a nice secluded spot by the water.
Spend the Night at the Movies
The perfect date night on a rainy day, one where you can buy some popcorn and an oversized coke and watch the latest blockbuster. As for something a little different, there’s an old-fashioned Wurlitzer organ at the Royalty Cinema. Alternatively combine a trip to Zeffirellis in Ambleside with a post-film pizza or some live jazz.
Hideaway in a Romantic Log Cabin
If all else fails, there’s always your private spa suite or romantic log cabin. As when you stay with the Aphrodites Group, you can experience a truly romantic spa hotel. One in which you can crack open a bottle of bubbly and lay back in an outdoor hot tub. After which, simply retire to the relaxation room or snuggle up in front of the television.
