A little while back, I wrote about some things to do whilst enjoying a romantic Lake District weekend. Here are some more ideas.

Many people visit the Lake District because of its many waters. We had a newly married couple visiting us recently who were keen to see this lovely area’s waterfalls and lakes; so we arranged a wonderful tour for them using a Blue Badge guide, who took them to little known places that only the locals know. One of these was Watendlath. Photos taken there and at other places show them with arms entwined round each other, with picturesque scenery forming some truly amazing backdrops.

On another occasion, a couple celebrating their anniversary decided to spend time horse-riding together. They stayed four nights with us and travelled to various stables where they enjoyed exhilarating rides on Lakeland’s fells and only beach.

We also play hosts to more adventurous couples, who enjoy engaging in dare-devil activities together such as zip-lining, quad-biking and off-roading, to name a few. The closest place to Blenheim Lodge for zip-lining as part of a tree-top walk is Brockhole (3 miles south). Alternatively, there is GoApe at GrizedaleForest 20 minutes’ south, where guests can also go walking, mountain biking and ride Segway machines.

After all those activities, it must be nice to sit down to a romantic meal a deuxThere are numerous restaurants, bistros, and pubs in Bowness-on-Windermere, where Blenheim Lodge is located, serving food ranging from English pub grub and finer dining to Indian, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, and Thai cuisines. Take a 5-minute walk from our Bed and Breakfast, and guests will be spoilt for choice from about 20-30 eating places.

These shops are about a 2-minute walk downhill from our B&B guest house, Blenheim Lodge. (www.visitcumbria.com/amb/bowness-on-windermere.htm)

Bowness-on-Windermere is a convenient base for visiting the Lake District. Why not stay at peaceful, relaxing Blenheim Lodge for a romantic Lake District break? We would be delighted to welcome you!
