It is kind of a last minute idea and thinking about planning to surprise my fiancee with a trip to the lakes for valentines, although due to work/uni commitments will be going up Friday 18th Feb for two nights coming back Sunday. Basically looking for some help on where to stay and where to book. I am completely lost and confused about all the options. I have found golakes.co.uk and that seems to be quite a comprehensive site to find places, is this generally a viewed as a good place to book somewhere?
I am looking for a either a nice hotel or guesthouse/BB type place with a budget of up to £150 for the two nights for both or us. Have no idea about locations, I will have my car so can get around quite easily. In terms of what I am looking for
- nice accommodation to relax in (pleasant rooms of reasonable size or space/things to do at accommodation)
- in terms of activities probably hiring a bike and cycling around, taking strolls
- don't mind too much whether in main town as I have my car to get around if necessary
Any suggestions on what to do for couples are welcome. Can anyone recommend a part of the Lakes to stay in or even a hotel/guesthouse for the budget taking into account what I have mentioned.
