With romance in the planning for 14th February, people are looking for something very personal for an ‘I do’ – so where is original and unique for a romantic proposal? What about a wild and wonderful waterfall?

The four star 2 AA Restaurant Lodore Falls Hotel in Borrowdale, the Lake District has all the credentials needed. Sitting in 40 acres of ground with dramatic fell and lake views against a backdrop of mountains, it overlooks Derwentwater where there is even a launch jetty stopping at end of garden. Best of all, the grounds include the Lodore Falls – the waterfall from which it takes its name, wonderfully wild for proposals.

General Manager Stephen Johnson is a romantic at heart and likes to make proposals even more special. Stephens says “Imagine asking your loved one to marry you with the sound and sight of a waterfall, surrounded by candles and with champagne on ice waiting for you to celebrate. Get down on one knee and the Lodore Falls Hotel and I will ensure it is a moment to recall for eternity.”

And when she said yes, the couple can celebrate a happy future together with a romantic 4 course candlelit dinner and wines in the AA rosette restaurant with white linen, candelabras and fresh flowers. The romantic Lake View bedroom allowing you to wake up to a stunning view before enjoying a celebratory Bucks Fizz breakfast in bed.

Relax in the outdoor hot tub or enjoy the leisure facilities or stroll around the gardens, enjoy the view from the fellside gazebo, or pop to the end of the jetty for a most romantic I love you.

£350 for 2 people on a one night dinner bed and breakfast, add an additional night B&B for £250. Lake View Room subject to availability.
