In today’s busy schedules, it can be hard to stay show the special person in your life how much you adore them. But a romantic holiday, filled with a romantic atmosphere between you, will soon change all of that.

We’ve put together this list so you can find booking a romantic holiday as easy as possible. Just take a look at some of our useful tips below.

Picking a Destination

Glamping Holidays At Their Finest In Dorset- The Shepard's Angel Hut - Glamping Holidays UK

First of all, you need to pick where you want to go. Of course, you can splash out on a weekend city trip to Europe, but does sitting on a packed aeroplane sound romantic? Instead, why not look for somewhere a little closer to home? The UK has some truly spectacular staycation locations that are simply made for romantic breaks!

If you are looking to spend some quality time together, then why not stay away from the bustling cities and towns and opt for a more secluded break? Locations like Sussex, Cornwall, Pembrokeshire and Shropshire can do just that. You can take a romantic walk by the coast or through the countryside and really connect with each other. Just let the natural surroundings work its magic.

Our top tips:

  • Think about places which mean something to you both.
  • Or, try something new and make ever-lasting memories together that you can share.
  • Try and pick somewhere more secluded away from the busy cities.

Choose Your Accommodation

Hotels and B&B’s are a great option, and they’re sure to tick the usual boxes. But, why not think about something a little more unique and more intimate? Looking for bespoke accommodation that’s designed to cater for romantic breaks instead of the usual options shows that you really want to try something new and have the time to enjoy each other’s company.

Planning Ahead Helps

To make the most of your time together, we suggest planning a few things you’d like to do before you head off. Depending on how long your trip is, it is definitely worth taking a look at things to do locally, places to eat, or nice local markets to buy produce if you’re cooking a romantic meal yourself. By planning a few elements of your trip in advance, you can save yourself some time, leaving you with the chance to enjoy more quality time with each other.

What Will We Need?

Packaging for any type of holiday is a task that not many people revel in, but when it is just the two of you, it can be a little easier than having to pack for the whole family. We suggest taking along a couple of bottles of your favourite wine or some Champagne as well as some of your favourite food if you are choosing a self-catering abode. You can toast your idyllic getaway then. Cheers!

Will We Need Anything Else?

Do a little research before your trip and find out how you can make your holiday more memorable. Think about requesting a special table at a restaurant or visiting the most picturesque places to sit and have a picnic.  Surprise your significant other by including a reference to your time together, if you can. We’ll leave the choice up to you but just think of a gesture that will make the heart melt and the smiles beam.

Connect by Disconnecting

In normal day-to-day life, many people get stuck in having to deal with work during out of work hours. Then there’s social media and all the other distractions too. This can interrupt ‘you time’, so, when you arrive at your destination, take the time to disconnect to help you both connect. So, turn those smartphones off and allow the distractions to disappear as you reconnect.
