Romantic Walks in the Lake District

This beautiful place can inspire even the most cynical of hearts. Even the place names are romantic, for example there is Darling Fell, near Loweswater, Dovenest Crag, Borrowdale and Hartsop, near Brotherswater, to name but a few. There are no shortages of idyllic little spots and trails along which to traipse and fall in love, all over again.

Take a stroll along the shores of Ennerdale Water. There is something in the air around these parts, it’s also famously the place where Bill Clinton popped the question to Hillary. Who knows, maybe you’ll be making a few proposals of your own, in that exact same spot. Other beautiful walking spots include, High Sweden Bridge above Ambleside, Haystacks fell, above Buttermere and the majestic views from Ashness bridge overlooking Derwentwater.

The village of Boot in the Eskdale Valley, is simply stunning and a perfect beauty spot for a casual stroll. It is one of the more difficult areas of the Lake District to get to, so a car is a requirement. Driving to Boot, allows you to admire the dramatic peaks, including England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, and take photos of the amazing views.

The tiny village of Boot is surrounded by mountains, giving it an almost high-altitude feel. The air is alpine fresh and incredibly invigorating. The quaint hamlet, still manages to have two pubs so you won’t be short of beverage choices, should you want to go inside somewhere and have a breather.

With the sun shining and the horizon extending towards the sea and imposing mountains at every turn, your troubles will melt away as you drink in one of the most beautiful and peaceful locations on the British isles.
