A room with a view is a great way to instantly change your outlook and get some perspective. The windows of our cottages open up to some breathtaking sights. Let us inspire you with a selection of some of the finest outlooks you can enjoy from some of our most beautiful hideaways.
Poetic panoramas in the English Lake District Hallin Bank, near the spectacular Ullswater lake
The Romantic Retreats team know there are few horizons that can match the show-stoppers you find in the Lake District. That is why we live here! The hills have inspired English poet William Wordsworth and writer Arthur Wainwright – we think you will find it hard not to be moved by them too. This view is from Hallin Bank, a romantic farmhouse with magnificent views of Martindale.

Welsh rainbows at Bwthyn y Gilfach, in the beautiful Cwm Pennant Valley
Imagine waking up to this – a rainbow cutting through the clouds and into the beautiful Welsh countryside. Drive up to 50 acres of private grounds in Snowdonia National Park and you can enjoy a week away from it all in a romantic stone cottage with views of Moel Hebog and easy access to beautiful mountains, beaches and attractions that North Wales has to offer.
One of the most photographed views in Britain, in the romantic hills of Dorset
This picturesque view became famous after starring in Ridley Scott’s 1970’s advert for Hovis bread.
This is one of those locations that oozes nostalgia. The setting, Gold Hill, in Shaftesbury, is still called Hovis Hill by the locals. It will take you back to the past. We have the ideal retreat there – check out the charming 16th century Updown Cottage. Click here to view this cottage »
