With just a few days to go until Valentine’s Day many of our cottages are being booked up by couples looking for the perfect romantic getaway. If you’re planning an idyllic escape with your other half this Valentine’s Day then we suggest you keep reading as we share our hints and tips for making your getaway perfect!
Choose the Perfect Location
Britain is beautiful. From the Scottish mountains to the Cornish beaches, it’s got to be said that our little island has a lot going for it! When choosing your dream destination we suggest thinking about what you want to see. If you picture your Valentine’s Day sat under an open sky watching the stars, then consider Snowdonia National Park which was recently granted dark sky status. Or perhaps you would rather see a little more colour? If so then sunsets over Ben Venue are sure to leave you feeling inspired.
With over 6,000 holiday cottages to choose from, here at Sykes Cottages you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to romantic retreats, but to help narrow down your search for the dream cottage we suggest considering those little extras which can take a cottage stay to the next level! For example, our cottages with a home cinema are great for couples who love to watch movies, or how about our cottages with an open fire, ideal for cosying up with you other half? Alternatively you could push the boat out and rent a cottage with a hot tub, a real treat for any couple looking to relax under the stars.
Arrange a Special Day Out
We can think of nothing better than a weekend locked away in a cottage with our partner, but if you do feel like venturing out and about, make sure it’s for something extra special. There is a fantastic selection of days out available in the UK, picking the right one simply depends on what you and your partner like to do. You could spend the evening at one of the UK’s Michelin starred restaurants and dine like royalty, have a high energy day soaring over the Welsh countryside at speeds on 100mph with Zip World Velocity, or simply rent a row boat and glide over the waters in one of the UK’s most romantic cities.
Don’t Forget The Gift!
Whether you go for the classic flowers and chocolates or splash out on expensive jewellery, no Valentine’s Day is complete without a romantic gift. Forgetting your partner’s gift can lead to disaster, so make sure you purchase yours in advance to avoid any upset on the day. To really impress your other half this year, why not treat them to a stay at one of our romantic cottages? We even have a guide to booking a surprise holiday, so when you turn up on Valentine’s Day, your partner is sure to be left speechless.
