Now that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to plan a spontaneous romantic break with your partner. Spending quality time together is an important part of a relationship and for couples who don’t have a lot of time for a week or two away abroad, a short romantic staycation is the way forward.
With a UK destination, there’s no need to organise flights, rental cars or even take time off work. Squeeze in a mini-break over a weekend and still get the chance to indulge in quiet time away from busy schedules and make new memories together. We’ve listed the top five romantic UK staycation options for couples looking to get away this Valentine’s Day.
Cornish sunsets and oceans are amazing to experience all year round. It’s an incredibly romantic place to enjoy with your partner in February and without summer crowds, you can enjoy the stunning seafront, fresh seafood and dog-friendly beaches, with a little more privacy. Cornwall is warmer and milder than other parts of England due to sitting at the edge of the Gulf Stream which brings in the warm Caribbean air, so you might even get some early hints of Spring weather! Although it may be a little cold to go swimming in Cornish waters this month, you could always hire wetsuits and go for a couples’ surfing lesson – the waves are fantastic this time of the year and it would certainly be a bonding experience to remember.
Brighton is the perfect choice for a mix of nature and nightlife. Park your motorhome at a nearby campsite and head to one of Brighton’s many restaurants for a stylish backdrop to your romantic date right by the seafront. Brighton Pier is also known for its entertainment, with rides and slides for thrill-seekers – there won’t be a boring moment! Or you could raise your heartbeats by doing some cycling or walking across the shoreline and get in touch with nature. Enjoy the mini-Taj Mahal, Brighton’s Royal Pavilion or check out vintage shops and revel in the friendly and fun Brighton atmosphere without breaking the bank.
For those who prefer a quieter experience, The Cotswolds is the epitome of rural England. There are plenty of motorhome parks tucked away, many of which are pet-friendly so you can always take your four-legged friend with you to enjoy long country walks among the idyllic meadows and rivers. With your partner, you could visit the many traditional English pubs, go for afternoon tea and soak up a little history at the medieval castles and abbeys. For a picturesque and peaceful weekend away, the Cotswolds is the perfect choice.
The Lake District is a slice of heaven known for its wildlife, history, culture and breath-taking views. If you and your partner are up for a challenge, you might choose to hike to Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England at 978 metres. But whether you are beginners or seasoned hikers, there are trails to suit all levels of expertise. The Lake District is a treat for all seasons, holidaying in February just means fewer crowds and more space to enjoy the scenery at your own pace. This paradise for walkers is surrounded by rolling hills, meandering lakes, unspoilt countryside, and dreamy villages – what’s not to love!
For an elegant city filled with beautiful Georgian Classicism architecture, open green spaces, and relaxing, natural thermal hot springs, choose to holiday in Bath. Not only is Bath bursting with beautiful and unique places to eat and drink, but it is also home to a variety of museums, galleries, and theatres. If you’re after a true mixture of city and countryside, with a big dose of cultre, Bath is the ideal choice.
