Breaks for Valentine’s Day


Cottage breaks to celebrate Valentine's are popular with couples and whisking your partner away at this time of year can be a big romantic gesture.  Going away and enjoying some quality couple’s time together is the perfect way to mark the most romantic holiday of the year. Whether it’s a secluded bolthole nestled deep in the countryside, a picturesque hideaway up in the mountains or a cosy retreat within the grounds of a stately country home, the options are diverse and plentiful. What a lot of couples do is book three-night stays: they arrive the day before Valentine’s Day, so they can wake up on the day itself in their cottage and spend a couple of days enjoying each other’s company. The advantage of renting a high quality cottage for two is that you get to enjoy complete privacy; you have the freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want. There’s no staff or other guests getting in the way; it’s simply you and your loved one making special memories together.

Romantic breaks year round

When booking a romantic break, you don’t have to limit yourself to set dates or occasions. It’s not about the time of year or even the place - it’s all about you and your partner having quality time together and taking home lots of worthwhile memories.

Weigh up the different experiences you can have going away at different times of year. For example, if you go away in winter, you could end up snuggled up by the fire together watching the snow falling outside; opt for a summer getaway and you could pass your time enjoying some leisurely countryside walks together. No matter what time of year it is, there are plenty of options to consider, even if there’s nothing particular to celebrate and you just want to get away and have some alone time together.

Why not be spontaneous? If you’ve got nothing on this weekend, why not be impulsive and go away together for a short luxury cottage break? Sometimes, it’s breaks that are booked last-minute that end up being the most enjoyable and worthwhile. Having said that, you can still have a wonderful time on a cottage holiday if you book months in advance and you often get the best choice of accommodation when you book well in advance. It’s all about that quality time together and a luxury holiday cottage is a top choice of accommodation for that.
