The Lake District

Best Lake District Days Out For Couples

21st October 2019

The Lake District is not only one of the most beautiful parts of the country, but also one of the most romantic places too. There’s plenty to do in the local area when you’re visiting and if you’re looking for something romantic to do with your partner, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Of course, if you stay at the Daffodil Hotel, you’ll have a romantic setting to begin your trip, but make sure to get out into the local area and try some of these days out which are ideal for couples.

Lake Windermere

Lake Windermere is one of the best known in the Lake District and when you see the views, you’ll be able to understand why it’s so popular. You can get out onto the water itself with Windermere Lake Cruises, one of the best ways to experience the sights of the Lake and a fantastic day out. You can either take a cruise or hire a rowing boat or motorboat so you can explore the lake yourself.

Hill Top

Hill Top is the former home of the Peter Rabbit author, Beatrix Potter, who bought the home with the proceeds from her first book. The cottage looks just as it did when Beatrix lived in it with her own belongings decorating the home. You can even take a wander through the beautiful gardens which inspired many more of Potter’s stories. Who knows, maybe you’ll find your own inspiration.

Castlerigg Stone Circle

With some spectacular views, you won’t regret going up to Castlerigg Stone Circle, one of the oldest British stone circles, thought to date back to around 3000 BC. You’ll get some amazing views of Helvellyn and High Seat when you’re up here, creating an incredible atmosphere as you take in the breathtaking views.


With a cinema, jazz bar, and restaurant, Zeffirellis provides quite the experience for couples looking for a romantic evening out. You could take in a film after enjoying a meal together, or maybe just enjoy some free live music in the jazz bar with a bottle of something bubbly!

Theatre by the Lake

Take in a show at the Theatre by the Lake set in the beautiful town of Keswick. With the theatre just a short stroll from Derwentwater, you’ll be able to enjoy some fantastic views before you enjoy the show at the theatre. The shows are put on by a resident company of actors with up to nine productions throughout the year, so you’re sure to find something you’ll enjoy.

When you visit the Lake District, you’ll be spoilt for choice with places to go and things to see, especially if you’re looking for something with a touch of romance. Make sure to get out and explore the area yourself and enjoy the incredible natural beauty which fills the Lake District.

You’ll find that the Daffodil Hotel is an excellent place to stay for your romantic getaway as you can choose from a variety of luxurious rooms, as well as enjoy the fantastic facilities such as our onsite spa. Take a look at our availability and book your romantic holiday today.
