Regardless of the time of year or the occasion, there’s always time for romance. With summer just around the corner – yes, the sun is on it’s way – it’s the perfect moment to get planning a romantic staycation to whisk your partner away to enjoy some treasured memories:
What type of staycation do you want?
There are a multitude of staycations available for couples looking to escape reality and spend a few romantic days together. It’s all a case of figuring out which one would be perfect for you both.
Does camping under the stars sound like your idea of heaven, but you don’t fancy sleeping on a hard floor, in a dusty old sleeping bag you found in the back of your cupboard? Then enjoy the best of both worlds and look towards glamping holidays, so that you can both camp in style and luxury. Roast marsh-mellows on an open fire under a blanket of stars and talk the night away!
Feel like Tarzan or a bird and stay up high in the trees. A big upgrade from the tree houses of your childhood, take in the fantastic views from a completely new vantage point. These wooden homes, hugged by a forest of trees, are plushed out in all the luxury decoration and mod-cons you could possibly need, making for a perfect alternative accommodation option for nature lovers.
Does the idea of the seclusion of a log cabin nestled in amongst the forest, with the added bonus of a hot tub, sound like bliss? It may surprise you that luxury log cabins are not only native to Scandavian countries, there are many cabin options across the UK for you to enjoy (and just as beautiful!). With many striving to live a Hygge lifestyle, getting back to basics, even if its just for a couple of days, is easily achievable on a UK holiday.
Where should you go?
There is no better place than Cornwall, with over 400 beaches, 7 of which have been awarded Blue Flag titles. Wherever you visit in Cornwall you are not far from the rolling tide and the soft sands.
Head to Wales, the world’s capital for adventure; this beautiful corner of the world is a hotspot for all type of adrenaline-fuelled adventures. Fly along one of the fastest zipwires, climb your way up to the summit of mountain peaks, venture down through an old mining cave to bounce on a big trampoline , canoe your way around caves, learn to surf or even whizz your way down peaks on a mountain bike! Whatever gets your heart pumping, you are sure to find it in Wales!
If you’re wanting to know which places in the UK everyone is raving about, according to an article in The Telegraph, we were not surprised to discover that the beautiful counties of Devon, Cornwall and Norfolk have been voted as some of the best places to visit.
What will you be doing on your holiday?
Once you’ve decided on what type of location and accommodation is best suited to you and your partner, it’s best to plan an itinerary of all the things you want to do while on your staycation. Be sure to research the area thoroughly before booking the break to make the most of your time away. It’s always best to look towards the tourism board websites for the county you are interested in going to, as they will be able to outline the best things to do.
