Location, location, location
First and foremost, it’s important that you consider the location when choosing the perfect romantic retreat. If you’re surprising your loved one, you might want to consider if they love the peace and quiet of the countryside, the hustle and bustle of a city centre or the salty air of the coast.
For endless stretches of unspoilt countryside with perfect privacy, Hares Form is the perfect cosy cabin for two to enjoy. For those with salty souls Porthminster View offers comfortable luxury with sublime sea views.

Thoughtful features for refined romance
Whether it’s chocolates on the pillow or the impressive heart-shaped brass plumbing at Y Capel, many of our owners go the extra mile when it comes to thoughtful features at their romantic retreats. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, why not get in touch about welcome hampers and personalised treats for your special someone.
A true-showstopper, the outdoor bathtub at the Cargo Cabin is the perfect setting for magical moments. Surrounded by whimsical wildflowers in the summer, the tub is a spectacular spot for stargazing.
Wining & dining during your staycation
You might want to consider if you’ll be indulging in some fine dining during your stay, or if you want to pull out all the stops and create your loved one’s favourite dish. With this in mind, you’ll be needing a well-equipped kitchen like the dreamy facilities at Ewe View. Our owners are often also on hand to provide local recommendations for inspiring and indulgent eateries, with many providing an informative guest book at the property.
Planning to pop the question? Simply treating your partner to a special stay? Why not bring your own essentials to make the moment even more special, such as candles, rose petals or even just a thoughtful gift. Bringing along a surprise gift can turn a blissful break into a romantic staycation with almost no effort at all.
If you are planning on bringing props or wish to arrange a surprise ahead of your arrival, please always confirm with the owners beforehand.
Have you got a picky partner or just want to experience something that little bit ‘different’? Why not head to Arcadia Glamping for a staycation nestled in woodland with a romantic outdoor bath or instead escape to the wonderful wilds of Norfolk with a stay in the truly captivating Spinks Nest Cottage that features a Japanese sunken bath and truly indulgent interiors.
