There are few places in the country that exude romance more than the Lake District. Perfectly aligned alongside never ending awe-inspiring nature and a certain air of magic about the place, the Lake District is an endlessly romantic place to get down on one knee and make your loved one jump for joy.

That’s why we've put together this lovely list of some the best proposal spots in the area.

In fact, we really want to help you make your stay in the Lake District extra special and romantic - which is why we offer the chance to upgrade your stay with champagne, roses and chocolates.

So please feel free to take our advice and make your loved one feel extra special on your next visit!



If you’re hoping to propose at the very heart of natural beauty, then you cannot go far wrong with Derwentwater.

This truly natural haven is the perfect spot to take your loved one if you’re hoping to have a private proposal. Derwentwater is a lake in the area and it’s one of the most beautiful too.

Located in Keswick, this romantic destination is a beautiful place for those hoping to take a loved-up walk or enjoy a tasty picnic. You can also hire a boat if you fancy heading out on the water and proposing out there instead!


Kendal Castle

There may not be much of a castle left at this attraction, but there’s enough to immerse yourself in the history and become a part of it with your proposal too.

Why not do something extra unique and hike to the top?

There are some stunning views to behold up here, and the make for the perfect proposal photo too! It'll be a wonderful moment to remember for a long, long time to come. 





If you’re more of a traditionalist, then why not propose to your loved one over a beautiful meal and a bottle of wine? 

In fact, Francine's restaurant in Windermere is the perfect place to do it.

All of the dishes on the menu are presented beautifully and are a fitting tribute to some beautifully cooked seafood - so much so that we’re certain your partner will be impressed.

Then, after you’ve eaten, why not get down and put an even bigger smile on your loved one’s face?


Rydal Hall Gardens

If you like the thought of getting down on one knee amongst some stunning flowers and preened gardens then you won’t go wrong with this proposal spot.

It’s a quiet place and home to a waterfall as well as some truly beautiful natural sights.

There’s also a river close by, and there can also be special events going on depending on what time of year you’re going. One of the most recent was Alice in Wonderland themed!


Treetop Trek

Want to do something a bit unique for your proposal? Perhaps you want to make it a day to remember for a long time to come?

Well, a proposal at Treetop Trek could be the solution. Why not get down on one knee after soaring through the air on a zip wire with your adrenaline pumping?

We’re certain your partner won’t expect this turn of events - and it'll make for a great proposal story for your friends and family too.


Lake Windermere

If you’d like to propose at one of those places you know will be beautiful, then why not head down to Lake Windermere itself? 

This gorgeous tribute to natural beauty is the perfect place to create a picture-perfect moment you’ll remember for a long time to come.

After your loved one has said yes, you can then head out on the water for a relaxing afternoon on one of the many boat trips around - wonderful!
