Beautiful Lake District country house hotel, Lindeth Howe, in Bowness-on-Windermere, has come up with an innovative approach to Valentine's Day, encouraging romantic suitors to dive into their partners’ childhoods, to potentially treat them to a love-fuelled weekend or dinner that proves they’ve put some thought into their wooing.

Lindeth Howe is inviting the loved-up to pop the question, ‘Did you love Beatrix Potter stories when you were a child?’ If the answer is ‘yes’, all they need do is give the hotel a call and assess availability for Valentine’s weekend, knowing it can provide something very special.

This is because the hotel is in a unique position of being able to not only create a romantic mood against a stunning backdrop of nature and views of England’s biggest lake, but also deliver some Beatrix Potter enchantment.

Lindeth Howe was once owned by the children’s author and has letters and photos that mark that fact. It is also the property from which she wrote and illustrated two of her famous Tales – The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes and The Tale of Pigling Bland.

With this, six acres of gardens, and indoor pool and all the attractions of the Lake District on the doorstep, Lindeth Howe’s Valentine’s break is an almost irresistible proposal for a partner who loved their Potter. Accommodation is in a superior, beautifully decorated room within the 4-star hotel, champagne, flowers and chocolates are provided and there is dinner, on both evenings, plus a hearty Cumbrian breakfast, served in the 2AA rosette dining room.

The Valentine’s night dinner menu begins with an amuse bouche, followed by dishes including local delicacies such as smoked Carmel Valley duck breast and Cumbrian beef fillet, along with romantic touches such as an oyster beignet served with seared sea trout.

The Valentine’s package costs £436 for a two-night stay for two. The charming Beatrix Potter nuances come for free. Head to
