Self-catering romantic retreats in the Lakes
Coppermines Lakes Cottages have been busy lavishing a little love and affection on some of their most popular properties
Whether you are looking for somewhere special to celebrate an anniversary, a weekend hideaway for you and your loved one, or maybe even somewhere for that special proposal, a romantic retreat is sure to spark the flames of any romance. Coppermines Lakes Cottages come in a variety of styles, from small and cosy terraced properties, mountain hideaways offering breathtaking views, luxurious farmhouses and modern, design-led apartments. Sumptuous four poster beds, inviting hot tubs and cosy real log fires are just some of the treats guests can expect to find.
Escape to the idyllic Tarn Foot Cottage, a traditional Lakeland farm cottage dating back to the 1700s. Located in the heart of the unspoilt Duddon Valley amongst crags and streams, invigorating walks are available from the front door, and a quaint country pub is just down the road, should be able to tear yourself away from the wood-burning stove. A 3-night weekend break at Tarn Foot starts at £223.
If you and your other half are more at home on top of a mountain than down on the ground, then No.4 Coppermines will fit the bill. Situated in the heart of the scenic Coppermines Valley, this quaint and cosy mountain cottage is perfect for couples seeking adventure. The many footpaths of the valley are available from the front door, and views of the Old Man of Coniston can be seen from the comfort of the double bed (who said you actually had to climb the mountains!). A 3-night weekend break at No.4 Coppermines starts at £230.
If luxury is what you and your partner crave, then all your prayers will be answered by the magnificent Gate House. Home to the famous Lakes artist Alfred Heaton Cooper in the early 20th century, Gate House is an exceptional Lakeland home. Complete with superb views and peaceful situ, this outstanding home makes a perfect base for romantics, offering a luxurious, effortlessly stylish and alluring base. There is a plethora of Lake District delights to explore from the front door too, should you be able to tear yourselves away from this opulent hideaway. A 3-night weekend break at Gate House starts at £870.
Should you be ready to take the next step, The Coppermines Lakes Cottages can also offer an enchanting and unique licensed wedding venue. The Coppermines Mountain Cottages are set amongst bubbling streams, tumbling waterfalls and rugged crags. The Coppermines Valley unfolds in front of the venue, surrounded by the rolling Yewdale Crags and overlooked by The Old Man of Coniston, rising over 800 metres. The cost of hiring the Mountain Cottages for a long weekend (Friday-Monday) varies throughout the year, with prices starting from £2,547 and rising to a maximum of £4,201.00.
