Best romantic meals out

For a delicious lunch out or Afternoon tea why not try the award-winning Bassenthwaite Lake Station. The cafe is based in a lovingly restored train station and Orient Express train carriage and serves fantastic food from breakfasts to afternoon tea and everything in between. But remember to book in advance as this place sells out early. 

 Wild Strawberry Patisserie and Coffee Shop in the centre of Keswick is another lovely place for lunch and a great pit stop after a morning walk or mooch around the shops.

The Lingholm Kitchen, or The Chalet in Portinscale (just a short distance from Keswick) are other fantastic options for lunch, and the walled garden in the Lingholm estate is beautiful for a wander and don't forget to visit the Alpacas.

Love Pan Asian Cuisine? Then Mizu - Pan Asian Restaurant is for you at Ladore Hotel & Spa, why not add a twilight & dine spa package at The Falls Spa to make the evening that extra bit special.
