Our Top Five Romantic Great Little Breaks
Posted on January 30, 2017 by Sabina
Whether your idea of romance is a stroll in the countryside or a sunset cocktail over one of the world’s greatest cities, the United Kingdom isn’t short of romantic spots. Here are our favourites.
Osborne, Isle Of Wight
“It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot”. Said by Queen Victoria herself after visiting Osborne for the first time. She fell in love with the beautiful gardens, stunning private beach and delightful blooming wildflower meadow. Osborne House was a haven for the Queen and her beloved Prince Albert. Are we surprised? It’s just as enchanting today.
Combine this with a stay at Luccombe Manor, one of the island’s finest hotels, oozing with Victorian charm.
Smart, edgy and bursting with multicultural vibes. If you're seeking the ultimate city break, London is always a winner. The diversity of this buzzing heartland is perhaps its star quality.
The Shard’s viewing platform is a magnificent way to soak up some atmosphere with your amore. Or perhaps take a stroll up the infamous Parliament Hill to watch the sun go down over this sprawling city.
Peak District, Derbyshire
Escape to the wildly romantic Peak District for a rural sojourn. Known for being the stomping ground of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre, this hearty hinterland is breathtaking.
Make sure you spend a day at the stunning stately home of Chatsworth House, the historic seat of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and setting of many famous love stories.
Isle of Sky, Scotland
Undulant and unspoilt, the rugged scenery of Skye is some of Scotland’s most captivating. The island’s hub is Portree, a picturesque town of colourful harbour buildings and a good base for those looking to explore the island. Keen wild swimmers should head for the enchanting Fairy Pools near Glen Brittle – a memorable spot for taking the plunge.
And whisky fans mustn’t leave without a trip to the Talisker Distillery, where you can warm those cockles with a tasting tour.
A place filled with wild flower meadows, mussle covered rocks, and beautiful views adored by the locals of Truro. We've recently been transported back in time thanks to the new TV show, Poldark!
Sit back and enjoy a delightful coastal break at The Lugger Hotel in the heart of famous Cornwall and discover one of the UK's most popular Botanical Gardens with tickets to the Lost Gardens of Heligan included.
