Experience an evocative valentines this year in the Lake District

We’re now nearing the end of January and we’re sure we’re not the only people who have suddenly realised Valentine’s Day is extremely close.

No excuses now, most have been paid so it’s the perfect time to get Valentine’s Day sorted for the special person in your life. Falling on a Sunday this year, why not make a weekend of it?

For those who want to be completely undisturbed yet have places to go out to walk, eat and drink on the doorstep then booking a romantic holiday cottage for the weekend is a great idea. In the Lake District many holidays cottages have the perfect combination of being secluded and private yet within walking or a short drive away from excellent places to dine and of course, long, romantic, leisurely walks.
