The shores of Ennerdale Water
Ennerdale is the most westerly of the Lakes but this lesser explored and scenic destination is certainly worth a short visit. The lake is around two and a half miles long and much of the land is owned by the Forestry commission. The water of the lake is exceptionally clear, making it a natural gem. It is also famous spot for proposals as Bill Clinton apparently proposed to Hillary Clinton here.
A home to the Lake District’s finest walks, Windermere has to top the list for a romantic gateway. Offering some of the world’s best scenery, Windermere can be best explored on a romantic cruise. If you really want to soak up the stunning views just sit back and relax on-board one of the vintage boats or instead opt for the hop on and hop-off boat. You can also hire a self-drive open boat to make it a more intimate affair. This Lake tour can get you some brilliant sunrise photos if the weather is right.
Book into a Windermere Spa Suite and make your trip extra special. See, the Lake District has it all!
