Every four years February is graced with an extra day, 29 instead of 28. Dating back to the 5th or some facts say the 13 (whichever, we’re talking a many, many years ago) century there is the long standing tradition as the 29th of February being the day that women can propose to men. Now we are in what we like to call modern day times, women can and do propose at any time of the year and it is becoming more common. There is still very much a sentimental feeling and that of a very special nature of a woman proposing on a leap year afterall, despite equality etc, only 5% of females pop the big question.
So ladies, why not make 2016 the year to propose. Don’t wait another 4 years, have the best engagement story to tell friends and family and choose the Lake District, the land of romance to ask the question.
A weekend away, luxurious hotels, the Lake District landscape to wander around and a backdrop that will never be forgotten. The Lake District is a place that so many people get engaged, return for honeymoons and anniversaries. Where to propose, the choice of endless in the Lake District. Maybe at the summit of a fell, when cruising down one of the lakes, in one of the award winning restaurants or perhaps in a luxury hotel suite.
The weekend has to be perfect and the accommodation needs to live up to the very special occasion. Brimstone Luxury Lake District Hotel at Langdale is geared up for leap year proposals. Each suite is secluded, private, has private outdoor space, luxury bathing and ultra luxurious fittings throughout. Suites available this leap year start from £275 but our tip is for the Duet Suite complete with two free standing baths for £400 per night including breakfast.
