Booking a surprise Valentine’s getaway?

There’s nothing quite as romantic as booking a surprise holiday for your partner, although considerable amounts of organisation and effort need to go into keeping it a surprise. All too often, hours of planning can be thwarted by oblivious holiday companies leaving ill-timed voicemails on your house phone and sending indiscreet letters through the post. This year, why not breathe easy and book your romantic break with Sykes? We have been booking romantic getaways for over 25 years and are a dab hand at making sure your surprise goes smoothly.  On first contacting us, let us know that you’re planning a surprise and from there you’ll be able to dictate how and when we contact you, ensuring that the cat isn’t inadvertently let out of the bag. We’ll do everything in our power to ensure that your romantic gesture goes to plan.

What makes a romantic cottage?

Many of our cottages have those indulgent touches that will make your getaway extra special. For a romantic holiday you won’t forget, we suggest booking a holiday cottage with a hot tub. Bring along a bottle of champagne and then just sit back and relax in the luxurious comfort of a hot tub with your loved one. Our cottages with hot tubs are extremely popular so do book quickly to avoid being disappointed! Another romantic feature that always goes down a treat is an open fire. There’s nothing more relaxing than spending an evening in front of the crackling flames cuddled up with your partner. So why not book one of our fantastic cottages with an open fire and let the sparks fly! Other features that you might want to consider when choosing your romantic cottage include large, comfy sofas, roll-top baths, four poster beds and beautiful scenery.  For the romantically challenged amongst you who are still desperate to impress, our highly trained holiday advisors will be able to assist in choosing the perfect romantic cottage to make your other half go weak at the knees.

The last thing you need to consider is what you’re going to do on your romantic getaway! Many of our cottages are situated within spectacular surroundings, close to the coast or in the midst of rolling countryside. Why not make the most of the Great British landscape and head out for a ramble with your loved one? The fresh February air will blow away the cobwebs and is the perfect antidote for getting rid of any work-related stress that you may have struggled to leave at home. After a long day of walking, you can make full use of your kitchen by whipping up a romantic meal for two. Our cottages are fully equipped with all the amenities you’ll need to produce a gourmet meal for your other half, so you can spend an indulgent evening enjoying the privacy of your own romantic retreat with good food and good wine. What could be better than that?
