As couples frantically try to think of original ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2012, Holgates, the award-winning holiday park company in Cumbria, is offering the ideal romantic rendezvous come 14 February.
Loved-up couples seeking a truly unique Valentine celebration can indulge in some uninterrupted peace and serenity with Holgates’ Romantic Pod Retreat at its scenic Bay View site located in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside.
Boasting a stunning secluded setting and dreamy sea views, couples seeking solitude this February can while away the hours together with indulgent picnics and hand-in-hand picturesque strolls along the many surrounding footpaths.
More adventurous couples can venture in to the nearby Lake District for a day of fell walking, water sports or to experience the region’s many events and attractions, before retiring to their cosy pod for a night snuggling under the stars.
The pretty wooden ‘glamping’ pods put the glamour back into camping. Built in Ullswater in the Lake District, each pod is individually handcrafted and comes complete with lighting, power point and heating. Each pod is also fully insulated with lamb’s wool which ensures a toasty night whatever the weather.
Not forgetting the more traditional Valentine’s Day treats, couples can indulge in delicious candlelit dinners, set in the recently launched Bay View restaurant. Boasting full height oak-beamed ceilings, a comforting wood burning stove and natural stone walls, the restaurant’s bistro-style ambience is the perfect place to enjoy a mouthwatering meal made from the finest local produce.
For couples needing to top-up on the all-essential fizz or late-night nibbles, the Bay View site also holds its own on site shop, ensuring guests have everything to hand for an easy escape.
Holgates offers peaceful holiday parks for caravans, motorhomes and tents in Cumbria and Lancashire. The family run company currently boasts the best campsite in the UK at its flagship Silverdale site which was awarded the top title of ‘England and Overall AA Campsite of the Year 2011’ in the AA Campsite of the Year Awards, beating off fierce competition from thousands of sites across England, Scotland and Wales earlier this year.
The Bay View Romantic Pod Retreat costs from just £40 per night and can sleep up to six people.
