Romantic staycations for Valentine’s Day

**This is a guest post 

 Although the UK may not be synonymous with ‘romance’ like that of our French neighbours, there are some amazing places to explore with your significant other. As Valentine’s Day is now less than a week away, here are six lover’s paradises’ to be enjoyed on February 14th. 


Hand-in-hand you can explore the cobbled streets and centuries-old buildings within the heart of York. After a day of strolling around the historic walls, you can rest your achy feet in the hotel’s full-service spa. With tastefully decorated rooms and suites available, you’re sure to have an impossibly luxurious and rejuvenating break. There is also a helicopter pad on the roof, if you really want to arrive in style. 

Bath is known for its natural hot springs, meaning it is the best place to visit for an authentic spa break. Located in the centre of the city, the Gainsborough is steps away from Thermae Bath Spa, so you can really immerse yourself in the luxurious setting. If you do manage to leave your tub, you’ll discover that Bath has a lot more to offer for a love-filled break away from the water.


Is there anything more romantic than being beside the ocean? Dreamy promenades down the sea front, sharing a Mr Whippy whilst narrowly avoiding the ruthless seagulls… there is nothing quite like it. This boutique Brighton hotel is nestled in the quaint narrow cobble-stoned alleyways of The Lanes, the oldest part of the city. Some rooms even have roll top baths in the bedroom, perfect for a valentine’s break.  

Every room in this Georgian townhouse is individually designed and decorated to an impeccable standard, each with a unique, quirky twist. Ideally situated for daily trips to the beaches and a short stroll from the Jubilee art deco lido in Penzance.


Tom’s Cottage is located in the Peak District, within the village of Baslow. Only one mile away is the lavish stately home, Chatsworth House. Once you have finished wandering around the noted art collection – you can don your wellies for a blustery winter walk through the rolling countryside.

This fairytale-esque cottage is located in the centre of the rustic Scottish countryside. The attractions in the local area include Gore Glen Woodland Park, which you can ramble and hike across until your heart is content. The secluded nature of this property will make you feel like the only two people in the world, when in reality you're only around 16 miles away from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh.
