Best Places to Spend Valentine’s Day In the U.K!

Good morning you wonderful people! Hope you are all OK (fingers crossed 🀞🏽) if your not, I hope you feel better soon. This Sunday just gone, we were supposed to have gone to see my sister but unfortunately, my mum and I were quite poorly πŸ˜” My mum was suffering a lot with her back and could barely move, and I had caught a sickness bug (although I’m not sure whether it was actually caused by the pressure in my ear, apparently it can cause nausea and sickness) we’re slowly on the mend, but as we both have poor immune systems it can take us a little longer to get better.

As Valentine’s Day is nine days away, I thought that if you wanted some ideas for where you could spend it, if you didn’t want to stay at home and wanted a weekend getaway, here are a few ideas that might entice you.

Places to Spend Valentine’s Day

Lake District – Cumbria

Lake District.
If you like nature to set the scene, there are few places more beautifully romantic than North West England’s Lake District. Here you can find easy outdoor walks and more rugged climb up hills and mountains that overlook some of Britain’s comeliest views. Try Augill Castle in Kirkby Stephen for a truly unforgettable weekend.

Cliveden House – Buckinghamshire

Cliveden House.
This exquisite Victorian mansion in Taplow has been home to dukes, earls and countesses and the author and socialite, Nancy Astor. It’s now home to one of the UK’s most luxurious health spas, set in stunning gardens and a short stroll away from the woodlands of rural Buckinghamshire. Enjoy a soak in the whirlpool followed by a range of relaxing beauty and massage treatments, before retiring to an exquisitely-furnished period bedroom.

Gretna Green – Dumfries and Galloway

Gretna Green.
Gretna Green is a parish in the southern county of Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, and is situated on the Scottish side of the borders of Scotland and England, defined by the small river Sark, which flows into the estuary of the western contiguous Solway Firth.

St Agnes – Cornwall

St Agnes.
The picturesque village of St Agnes sits on the north coast of Cornwall, a short hop down the coast from Newquay. The coastline here is stunning, and you can enjoy it from afar on a hilltop walk, or up close on one of the four pretty beaches in the area. Foodies will enjoy the fresh, local seafood and seasonal specialties served up at Taste on Vicarage Road, a charming place for a romantic supper.

The Isle of Skye – Inner Hebrides

Portree, Isle of Skye.
Skye, the largest of the Inner Hebrides, is famed for its breathtaking natural beauty. The island is ringed with miles of basalt cliffs, weathered peninsulas and clear, deep blue waters. The landscape here is more ruggedly sublime than prettily picturesque, but somehow all the more romantic for it. Skye is great for active couples – walking and climbing are popular activities here – and wildlife spotters should definitely bring their binoculars and a camera.

Portmeirion – Wales

 Portmeirion Village is now owned by a charitable trust
Portmeirion Village is an amazing weekend destination for anyone seeking a relaxing yet sophisticated surrounding. This beautiful place was built by Welsh architect Clough Williams-Ellis in the middle of the 20th C – purely due to his aspiration to create an ideal village inspired by Italian architecture. Portmeirion is home to two hotels, sandy beaches, a spa, stylish shops, award-winning restaurants, and exotic gardens.

Cambridge

 The prestigious University of Cambridge dates back to 1209
If you’re looking for a weekend escape on which to get lost among gorgeous architecture, that seems untouched for centuries, Cambridge is the place to go. The world-famous university town creates an inspiring and romantic atmosphere, and you can wander around the buildings or pop into historical pubs.

Bath

 Bath is known for its 18th C Georgian architecture
Bath is a perfect place for spa lovers, because of its ancient Roman Baths and modern Thermae Bath Spas, with natural thermal hot springs to bathe in. Even if you aren’t a spa fan, it’s a great city break with gorgeous honey-colored Georgian architecture and excellent restaurants in which to enjoy a glass of wine.

London

 London offers a great number of attractions and most of the museums are free
If you’d like your Valentine’s weekend break to be right in the heart of a busy city, London is hard to beat. The capital has everything to offer even for the most particular: a variety of bars, restaurants, clubs, world-famous museums, shows, and spectacular parks.
So you will definitely have plenty of choices.

Hopefully one of these places takes your interest! Enjoy the rest of your week and I will see you next Wednesday πŸ˜ƒ
