Over the years, the Lake District has been the chosen location for many an engagement story, with its picturesque location making it an idyllic backdrop to a proposal scene.
And it seems its beauty wasn’t lost upon former US president Bill Clinton either, as he recently admitted he got down on one knee at Ennerdale Water, one of the most beautiful spots in the Lake District.
While, unfortunately, it took three attempts before Hilary said yes to her future husband, the exquisite scenery of Ennerdale Water – a glacial lake 2.5 miles by 0.75 miles big – would have definitely made the proposal hard to turn down.
Situated in the western part of the Lake District National Park, it is one of the most remote lakes of the area. Due to its high altitude, the water is always still and clear whenever you visit, and is one of the cleanest you can find.
In fact, walkers staying in accommodation in the Lake District who love nothing more than crisp, fresh air should definitely pay a visit to this lake, as it is the only one in the region without a road next to it.
There are 16 lakes in total in the national park, including the famous Lake Windermere, which measures an impressive 10.5 miles long and one mile wide. No visit to the Lake District is complete without coming here, not least because it is the largest natural lake in England.
Or, you could head to Buttermere Lake, a mere 1.5 by 0.75 miles large, where you can experience total seclusion and peacefulness.
Now, if Clinton had proposed here, who knows what Hilary might have said?
