Looking for a way to treat your loved one or a memorable way to say, ‘I love you’? Why not spoil your partner with an indulgent and luxurious break to show them how much you care? Valentine’s Day 2013 falls on a Thursday so it’s a great opportunity to whisk your loved one away for a romantic weekend. Reconnect during your romantic getaway and enjoy your time together without any distractions. There couldn’t be a more perfect time to pop that special question than on a romantic Valentine’s weekend.
The good news is that a luxurious romantic weekend doesn’t have to break the bank. For cheap Valentine’s Day breaks in the UK, why not consider a self-catering cottage in one of the UK’s most charming locations? Your own holiday cottage couldn’t be more private or romantic so it’s an ideal spot for quality time together. Choose a cottage with an open fire for a cosy night in or perhaps a cottage with a luxurious four-poster bed is more your thing?
The UK is full of couples-friendly destinations so it can be tricky to choose where to enjoy your perfect romantic break.
Love in the Lakes
Let the undeniably gorgeous landscapes of the Lake District be the backdrop for your love story. In February, the chilly spring weather is the perfect excuse to wrap up warm and stroll hand in hand through the countryside. If it snows, what better excuse than to head back to your cosy cottage and snuggle up in front of the fire? There are plenty of restaurants in the Lakes ideal for a candlelit dinner or why not make the most of the kitchen in your holiday cottage and treat your partner to a delicious homemade meal?
The southwest Georgian city of Bath welcomes tourists in huge numbers to see the Roman ruins but the city is a romantic destination in its own right. Marvel at the honey-coloured Bath stone buildings and fall in love all over again in this magical city. Enjoy a couple’s massage or an evening under the stars at the Thermae Spa for the perfect way to spend a memorable Valentine’s Day. Only a short drive from Bath is the Wiltshire village of Lover, which makes for a romantic day out (even if it is pronounced like “Dover”)!
A Pilgrim’s Trail to Anglesey
Rugged and beautiful in equal measure, you’ll find the Isle of Anglesey just off the tip of North Wales. This island was once the home of Saint Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers. Follow the old pilgrim trail to the ruins of her church on Llanddwyn Island or just enjoy the views of the North Welsh coast. Legend has it that if you leave flowers for Saint Dwynwen, her romance will rub off on you. A romantic stroll along the beach for just the two of you is the perfect prelude to an unforgettable weekend.
Once you’ve booked your Valentine’s getaway, all you need to do is pack the romantic essentials; a bottle of bubbly, candles and a gorgeous bunch of roses to create the perfect mood!
