With Valentine’s Day almost upon us, the thoughts of all lovebirds up and down the country are turning to ways they can celebrate such a big occasion with their significant other better than ever before. Last year, lockdown restrictions meant we weren’t able toast February 14th away from our houses so why not opt to do something extra special this time around and surprise the love of your life with a romantic break?
There are loads of fun and relaxing options on these shores to choose from, but act fast – the Feast of Saint Valentine is fast approaching and you don’t have long to get your plans sorted!
What could be more romantic than getting away to a secluded location and dipping into a steaming hot tub, with your other half to one side and a glass of champers on the other? Hot tub breaks have soared in popularity over recent years and a number of types of accommodation now offer one as part of your stay – we think it’s the perfect way to treat the one you love this Valentine’s Day and turn the heat up in more ways than one!
A candle lot dinner for two - it’s the classic Valentine’s Day celebration isn’t it? Couples across the globe can always be found sharing a bottle of red over a feast of food, and traditionalists out there wouldn’t have it any other way. If this sounds like a bit of you, why not add some extra spice to your evening and book tickets to the theatre for you and your companion? It’s a great way to include increased excitement on what’s sure to be a night to savour.
The more outdoorsy amongst us see rocking up at a local campsite and pitching up a tent as the perfect idea of a relaxing weekend away, but to some people’s surprise, even that can be a great way to turn up the romance. Glamping is another UK break option that has grown in popularity rapidly over recent times and, as the name suggests, it’s essentially camping, but way more glamourous. So choose a location, grab the marshmallows and light the fire both literally and figuratively as you enjoy a classy break with your life partner.
If the great outdoors doesn’t quite sound like your thing, a relaxing spa break certainly will be. You can really kick back and relax in style, with a swim, sauna or steam room session and a dip in the jacuzzi followed by a huge range of spa treatments to help you destress from daily life. Many spa hotels also offer packages with dinner included, meaning you can finish your night having a bite to eat and your favourite tipple for the perfect end to a truly romantic hideaway.
