With a name like The Love Shack, how could we not include it in our collection of our favourite romantic retreats in the Lake District? Tucked away in between the trees on a slope on the side of Lake Windermere, this little bolthole packs a punch. Owners Karen & Adam have reimagined the concept of a woodland cabin and the result is an architectural mini masterpiece. No wonder it won the coveted RIBA award in 2011.
It makes a perfect Lake District romantic cottage for couples as it’s set on the quiet side of Lake Windermere, great for walks off the beaten path, relaxing and unwinding and simply soaking up those views.
