There’s nothing quite like a beautiful summer sunset and with July being National Share a Sunset Month, this is the perfect time to share a shimmering experience with the whole family.
The UK has plenty of picturesque settings that could provide the perfect backdrop to a memorable sunset and the Lake District is one the most beautiful. Our Family Lake Cruise with Ullswater Steamers provides a great opportunity to marvel at this stunning area of outstanding natural beauty. The experience on the Ullswater Steamer allows for hopping on and off the vessel throughout the day to best enjoy the many stunning panoramic views of Cumbria.
The area around Ullswater is blessed with a number of wildlife trails, outdoor activities and is rich in local history. In fact, one of the steamers was launched in 1877 and claims to be the oldest working passenger vessel in the world. Each boat includes seating, toilet facilities and a bar selling drinks and cold snacks – what could be more ideal for spending a few relaxing hours on the lake?
Having finished exploring, round off the day with a return to the lake to enjoy a stunning sunset, surrounded by Cumbrian hills and glistening water with light dancing across the surface.
For romantic couples, the Lake District has plenty more to offer. Just a short drive from Ullswater is The Howbeck Hotel where a two night boutique stay promises rose petals on the bed and relaxing spa treatments. Couple that with a wonderful lakeside sunset and you really do have it all.
