Idyllic and breathtaking in the summer, and equally so in the winter, the Lake District really is the ultimate staycation/minimoon destination for couples tying the knot in 2020 and beyond!
Linthwaite House has put together two great packages – "Pedal & Picnic" and "Row & Recharge" – in cooperation with local Michelin-starred chef Simon Rogan to help guests make the most of this stunning part of the country.
The more energetic newlyweds will want to book the "Pedal & Picnic" so that they can cycle out into the Lake District National Park (England's largest), which gained UNESCO World Heritage list status in 2017. The Lake District includes all the country's highest peaks (reaching close to 1000m), so planning your route is critical dependent on whether you want a leisurely outing or a calorie-burning workout!
This package includes two nights' accommodation, daily full English breakfast, bicycle hire and a delicious picnic prepared by Simon Rogan's award-winning Henrock team; rates start from £690 for two people sharing a Classic Room for two nights.
Those looking for a more laid-back approach to their staycation - of course you are, you're on honeymoon! - might prefer the "Row & Recharge" option, as it means not leaving Linthwaite House. Instead, slow row or simply sit in the hotel's old-fashioned wooden boat, gently lapped by the water, on the hotel's private tarn (small lake) that dates to the early 1900s when it served as the reservoir for the local parish. Set amid the hotel's 14 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, it's now home to a mass of wildlife, including trout, ducks, otters and more.
The this package includes two nights' accommodation, daily full English breakfast, use of the row boat and a delicious picnic prepared by Simon Rogan's award-winning Henrock team (which can either be enjoyed on the boat or set up somewhere else in the garden); rates start from £690 for two people sharing a Classic Room for two nights.
When not riding or rowing, there are plenty of peaceful corners in the grounds for guests to safely socially distance and enjoy some quiet time: there is a boules pitch, a croquet lawn and a large outdoor chess set, as well as pathways through the gardens – where spotting tiger (statues) is an option!
