You’ve spent your time running around like a headless chicken, finding gifts for loved ones, cooking sprouts for what seems like 300 people, pretending to like your in-laws and dealing with screaming kids. Oh, and forgetting to buy batteries.
But once Christmas is over, isn’t it about time you did something for yourselves? The New Year is the perfect time for a romantic break and is often the ideal tonic to a hectic festive period. It doesn’t have to be expensive either – there are plenty of romantic destinations in the UK to be explored that are big on passion but small on price.
So why not enjoy some ‘you time’, book yourself in for a nice weekend away and check out some of the most romantic getaways the UK has to offer in 2014.
Love and luxury in Bath
Quite possibly the most romantic city in the UK, Bath will have you feeling like the lead character in your very own Jane Austen novel as soon as you arrive. Wonderful architecture coupled with the grandeur of Roman design and the relaxing Spa will leave you feeling reinvigorated and ready to face whatever life throws at you on your return to reality.
There are plenty of restaurants for candlelit dinners and a modern side to the city that sees funky cocktail bars and a bustling shopping scene – it really is the ultimate romantic destination. So why not check into one of our Bath hotels and enjoy a few days with your own Mr Darcy?
Famous for its university, Oxford is the perfect balance between city break and rural retreat. Plenty of history surrounds the city and the buildings wouldn’t look out-of-place in a period drama, plus there’s plenty to offer any couple looking for a romantic jaunt.
Walking trails, shopping sprees and fine food will punctuate your visit, so why not take a look at our hotels in Oxford next time you’re planning a trip for two?
What could be more romantic than the chivalry of medieval times? Knights in shining armour, fair maidens and princesses locked away in tall towers may all be things of the past, but you can revisit them on a trip to Warwick.
The castle is one of the finest in the UK and looks like something straight out of a fairytale. If you fancy riding into the sunset on a majestic steed, walking the battlements hand in hand or shouting your love from the high walls – Warwick Castle is for you.
If this sounds like it could be up your street, you could stay in one of our hotels in Leamington Spa and explore the beautiful Warwickshire spa town as well as Warwick’s Castle – a destination that is certainly fit for the king or queen in your life – whatever the time of year.
