It’s Valentine’s Weekend…….

…..and you late comers, those of you who may have forgotten what weekend it is or those that have suddenly realised they have underestimated what is expected of them for this weekend of love and romance, all is not lost.

coniston-water-west-shoreIt’s not too late to book a Valentine’s weekend away in the Lake District. What could be better than booking a romantic stay in a luxury cottage in the Lake District? A retreat where you can come and go when you please, a complete getaway. If you get a move on now boys, you can even look if a restaurant close by could sqeeze you in for a celebratory meal Friday or Saturday night and perhaps stock up on chocolates, champagne, croisants for the morning and goodies for a picnic hamper. The weather forecast is looking quite favourable for the weekend so a romantic picnic in a secluded spot should be on the cards.

Of course, just about everywhere in the Lake District is desirable but somewhere that really lends itself to Valentine’s is Cartmel. Cartmel is not just home to the famous sticky toffee pudding but it is now firmly on the map for gastronomy in general largely to do with Simon Rogan and L’Enclume but also the many other high quality places to eat and drink due to the abundant supply of the finest local produce. Combine this with its character, charm, cobbled streets and stunning holiday cottages, it’s really worth checking out.
