It’s that time of year when thoughts turn to romance on St. Valentine’s Day. For many couples, 14th February is a significant date and presents them with the perfect excuse to take time out for themselves as a twosome, perhaps with a special meal or day out, or even a romantic getaway from the daily hustle and bustle of busy lives. Blenheim Lodge B&B in Bowness on Windermere is of course open year round, where couples can come away for a refreshing escape within the beautiful environs of the Lake District National Park.

For couples who wish to get away from it all and yet be within easy proximity to local amenities, Blenheim Lodge could not be in a better location for just such a break. Quietly perched upon a hidden hill top with the pastures, woodlands, and summit of Brant Fell as a backdrop, Blenheim Lodge is also located next to the pretty Dales Way Footpath which branches off to Brant Fell summit, as well as Post Knott and Biskey Howe, two other local viewpoints within easy walking distance of our bed and breakfast.

Isn’t this inversion over Lake Windermere gorgeous? This is The Dales Way on Brant Fell, the name of the fell on which Blenheim Lodge rests. The front door of our AA 4-Star B&B is located a short 2-minute walk downhill from the foreground of this photo, and one of our bedrooms, The Dalesway, enjoys restful views of this fell.

If you want a quiet and peaceful break, yet require the amenities of a bustling village, our AA 4-star guest house offers just that! Thus, after exploring Brant Fell, why not walk the couple of minutes downhill to enjoy a meal at one of the numerous restaurants, bistros, and pubs within Bowness village centre or on Lake Windermere’s Promenade? Lake Windermere is only 5-10 minutes’ walk from Blenheim Lodge and, indeed, 10 of our bedrooms offer stunning views of England’s largest lake and surrounding fells.

Blenheim Lodge is centrally situated within the Lake District National Park, with easy access to various parts of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Most popular towns, villages and hamlets are approximately between 5-45 minutes’ drive from our guest house. Public transport is also available to guests, or we can, if given enough notice, also arrange door to door private guiding with a local Blue Badge guide.
