romantic weekend breaks UK

short romantic breaks in the city

With its stunning architecture, scenic walks, museums, and class-leading bars and restaurants, Bath is a cultural hotspot that is perfect for romantic getaways.

You can take advantage of all of this when you stay in a holiday lodge at Bath Mill Lodge Retreat, which is located on the outskirts of the city amidst the tranquil Somerset countryside. From here, you can take the gentle stroll directly into the city centre along the Newton Brook and really make the most of your weekend away.

There are various accommodation options available here. If you are just looking for a romantic one night break, then the Norland Lodge would be ideal. With a convenient kitchenette, comfortable super king size bedding, and a range of entertainment features, this studio lodge is ideal for short stays.

For slightly longer weekend getaways stretching from the Friday or into the Monday, there is a wider range of holiday lodges available all with full self-catering facilities for your consideration.

our iconic beach huts

Beach Cove Coastal Retreat is arguably the romance capital of Britain, having seen a plethora of proposals and honeymoons since opening its doors in 2013.

The reason for this is the idyllic coastal scenery, in a tranquil destination overlooking Hele Bay in Ilfracombe, as well as the intimate beach huts that are available for hire.

These are no ordinary beach huts, being well insulated and equipped with a range of home from home comforts, including full self-catering facilities and entertainment features such as Freeview enabled TVs, and of course complimentary Wi-Fi access for all visitors. Beach Cove tends to be a bit of a hit on Instagram thanks to the picturesque setting, so get sharing if you have an account.

Many of the beach huts are even available with their own private hot tub facilities, so you can sit out and admire the scenery amongst the bubbles regardless of the time of day. A truly romantic backdrop for a weekend away.

romantic hotel breaks

If you’re looking for the perfect romantic getaway in luxurious hotel accommodation, then look no further than the KP.

Our Huxtable Suite provides the ultimate romantic escape, surrounded by beautiful countryside views with private hot tub facilities and luxury furnishings including a king-size four-poster bed, to make your getaway feel extra special.

The suite includes a HD TV with Freeview channels and complimentary Wi-Fi access and all guests are welcome to take advantage of the Nordic Spa and Box Gym so why not book in some spa treatments and relax and unwind with your other half whilst you’re staying with us.

For a romantic meal try our Glasshouse Restaurant which serves up a range of tasty meals to choose from or York City Centre is only a short drive away which offers a range of bars and restaurants and there is plenty to see and experience from museums to theaters or why not indulge in some retail therapy?

hot tub breaks

If you don’t think romantic weekend breaks would be complete without a hot tub, then you’ve got plenty of choice with Darwin Escapes.

Alongside Beach Cove, we also have hot tub equipped accommodation available at a number of other locations across the UK. One of the most popular is Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa in Somerset where you will have access to 5-star facilities and holiday lodge accommodation. All of the lodges here are fully equipped for self-catering, but if you want to have a romantic meal out you could always take advantage of our on-site Kellermans Restaurant. Also available in our on-site complex is the Eden Spa where you can take advantage of a range of couples spa treatments and therapies.

If you prefer being away from it all in a tranquil location, then Mullion Cove Coastal Retreat is the destination for you with its beautiful hot tub equipped lodges. Sit out and enjoy the scenery on the beautiful Lizard Peninsula.

Another option in Devon with slightly more on-site facilities than Mullion is the brand new Hawkchurch Resort & Spa. Alongside the hot tub lodges here, guests will also be given access to the on-site facilities, which includes a Hammam style steam room and sauna. You will also be able to take advantage of the hydrotherapy pool, which is for over 16s only, and designed specifically to help relaxation and reduce muscle tension.
