It has been a beautiful day today – just dandy for that gentle stroll along countryside paths for romantic lovebirds. On Lake Windermere, the ferries were sailing as usual, taking people on cruises from point to point around the Lake. Cheerful birdsong accompanied dog walkers as their pets gambolled in the National Trust acres behind our guest house.
With blue skies and still days, what else can one ask for to complement a romantic break? Why, Bed and Breakfast rooms with views of course! Imagine gazing out of your window and seeing the sun rise or set over the waters of Windermere. Or look upwards and out through a velux window, where multiple stars twinkle at you. Perhaps, lie warmly tucked up in bed, listening to owls calling to each other in the woods. In the morning, wake up to sunshine streaming through your windows and tickling your eyelids open.
I think that February is one of my favourite winter months in the Lake District. It is a pity that not many people visit the Lake District during this month as they do miss out on some rather nice weather. Of course the doom and gloom predictions of high rainfall in the Lake District do not help. Unfortunately, people forget that we have our own micro climate in these valleys and mountains, and the weather here is often as lovely as it may be inclement at times.
At Blenheim Lodge we still have some last minute deals for Valentine’s week and weekend. A bed and breakfast stay for two people starts from as little as £88 per night, and includes free access to a private country club. Which reminds me – I ought to advertise this!
The mid-term school holidays are now upon us as well. And we still have vacancies for anyone looking for a break during the school holiday period. Blenheim Lodge provides a comfortable getaway for adults who normally work with kids and want to stay in a quiet place where the peaceful sound of silence is generally a known quality. As for lovebirds out there who are still looking for that little Valentine’s nest to retreat into, do contact us at Blenheim Lodge to check out our bed and breakfast offers. We would be delighted to meet and host you.
Blenheim Lodge . . . panoramic Lake views, peace and tranquillity, nestled against acres of beautiful fields and woodlands, in the heart of the English Lake District National Park.’
