Are you looking for a way to really wow the love of your life? With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect opportunity to start organising a romantic weekend away with that special someone. Valentine’s day is not only the international day of love, it’s a special time for everyone from the newly dating to married couples to have an ideal opportunity to show each other just how much they mean to one another. It’s also the perfect excuse to have a relaxing and romantic weekend away.
But if you’re finding yourself hard pressed for finding the perfect place to spend some much needed time alone together with your loved one, or how to make the time away extra special, continue reading for a few romantic getaway options and ideas that are sure to impress that special someone in your life.
1. Traditional Valentine’s day gifts are still very much in style
Planning a romantic Valentine’s Day weekend away does not mean that you should omit the little things that make our loved ones feel so special. Instead, use traditional Valentine’s Day gifts such as chocolates, flowers, and jewellery, to enhance the romance. You can even take it that extra step buy covering the room in flower petals for that special added touch. Traditional gifts can also serve as the perfect decoy, if you’re planning a surprise Valentine’s Day weekend away.
2. Revisit a familiar location
Have you been scrolling through various holiday spots online but nothing seems to really stand out? Try taking your special someone somewhere that you have already been to and have both enjoyed. Is there a place that holds a special memory for you and your partner, a place that you often reminisce about?
Why reminisce, when you can enjoy it all over again. Whether it’s the place where you spent your first weekend together as a couple, that quaint bed and breakfast with amazing countryside views you found together on that romantic road trip, or even where you spent your honeymoon, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to enjoy it all over again.
3. Relax in a tranquil countryside setting
What better place to enjoy some romantic one-on-one time than in the tranquil surroundings of the countryside. There are several Lake District hotels that are perfectly situated in a romantic countryside setting to help you effortlessly kick your romantic weekend together into high gear. Try to choose a hotel that has plenty of onsite amenities such as fine dining or spa options to reduce the amount of time spent traveling from place to place, and more time relaxing in the bountiful beauty that only a countryside setting can provide.
Here at YCB, we especially love Fishmore Hall and their SPAshell, designed by renowned designers, Spa Creators, a UK based specialist spa design consultancy. The spa has an amazing outdoor Cedar wellness pool and oversized hammock on the decking both overlooking the fields and the Shropshire hills. Sigh! There is ample relaxation space and the outdoor bucket and monsoon drench shower provides a refreshing and revitalising.
Taking a trip to the countryside together will not only provide with you breath taking scenery and fresh air, it will also give you and your partner a whimsical and comforting sense of seclusion that will allow you to forget about all the hustle and bustle of the outside world, so you can focus entirely on one another.
4. Looking to make it official?
For many people who are getting ready to pop the question, Valentine’s Day serves as the perfect atmosphere to ask the one you love, to commit to spending the rest of their lives with you. Getting engaged whilst on a romantic valentine’s day weekend is just about the most romantic way to propose that there is. In most cases your hotel, bed and breakfast, or restaurant staff, will be more than happy to help you make your proposal extra special.
Wishing all of you a safe, happy, and most importantly, romantic, Valentine’s Day!
