Where is the perfect honeymoon destination
you ask? St Lucia? The USA? What about Italy or Santorini in Greece? While
these places are great there’s nothing quite like a honeymoon in the UK. With
beautiful surroundings and diverse landscapes, the UK is the perfect place to
come to celebrate and enjoy your honeymoon.
Some prefer the more relaxing experience
and that’s what you get in the United Kingdom. So much on offer from amazing
landmarks and amenities as well as fantastic nightlife and friendly people.
That’s what makes this place really great.
Let’s find out where to visit on your next
honeymoon short break in the UK.
The Scottish Highlands
The Scottish Highlands are one of the most popular places to visit anywhere in the UK and it’s not really surprising why. With its rugged mountain ranges, scenic castles, solitude, fantastic coastlines and general mythical vibe, you can plan so much and make memories that last a lifetime with your husband or wife.
Of course, there’s the legendary Loch
Ness Monster which is worth a visit (if you can spot her) and other
fantastic outdoor pursuits.
the city of Inverness
From culture and sightseeing to shopping
and nightlife, Inverness is the capital of the Highlands of Scotland and the
gateway to the far North. With lots to do here we suggest taking a day or two
out on your adventure to really sample the life here. With Loch Ness nearby and
the famous Boath House and restaurant (with some of the best food we’ve
tasted), there’s lots to enjoy. We suggest planning ahead weather wise as
Scotland can be really unpredictable. This adds to its allure, the
unpredictability of it all.
Experience Glen Finnan Viaduct
You can’t come on your honeymoon adventure to the Highlands and not visit the Glen Finnan Viaduct. One of the most photographed places in the country and made famous by Harry Potter. It’s a fantastic place to come to get some awesome photos to look back on. Not far from Fort William, make a day of it by visiting both.
Eilean Donan Castle
Located on the Isle of Skye, it’s one of the most famous castles in Scotland. Worth a look and more. We suggest a longer visit to the Isle of Skye. It’s a real treasure in its own right. Add a few days here as part of your overall honeymoon Itinerary.
The Scottish Highlands should seriously be
considered the place to come for your honeymoon. One last tip is wherever
you’re visiting let your hotel or booking agent know that you’re on your
honeymoon and they will usually go above and beyond by leaving little extras in
your room or suite.
The Lake District in the heart of England
Heading further south now to the scenic
Lake District. With its high mountains,
amazing landscapes, quaint villages & cottages along with the well-known
National Park, the Lake District is a honeymooners paradise if you’re looking
to discover and explore your surroundings.
The Lake District has a real romance about it all. With its many lakes where visitors can enjoy unrivalled views on a cruise to enjoying a pint of beer in a traditional pub with the locals – it really is a place to get lost in.
With the Lake District being a UNESCO World
Heritage Site why wouldn’t you to come here to enjoy the best time in your life?
Check out some of the places to visit in this vast region:
Visit the beauty of Ennerdale Water
This is a real secluded romantic spot.
Ennerdale Water is located in the Western lakes. It’s quite a hidden spot so
you’ll need to drive through a significant part of the Lake District to get to
it. This adds to its attraction. It’s a quiet spot even during peak tourist
season so visitors can experience unrivalled views as well as enjoying a glass
of prosecco and a picnic during the warmer summer months.
See Lake Windermere in the Lake District National Park
This is a real fantastic area to visit.
Whether you take a cruise or just explore by the side, Lake Windermere is a treasure
in all of its own. 18 km miles long, it’s the biggest lake in England.
What’s good about here is there are a couple of picturesque towns which should encompass your visit here. With Bowness-on-Windermere near to the Lake and Ambleside which is located at the North end. Great for walks, café’s and more, come here to relax with your loved one.
The Lake and its surrounding towns are
definitely the most popular places to visit in the whole of the Lake
District. So much is to be discovered
here as part of your overall trip here.
Holker Hall & Gardens
Within the Lake District there are several castles, gardens and
country houses to visit but Holker Hall & Gardens is a stand out for
us. Near to the scenic Morecombe Bay,
Holker Hall offers a real romantic setting for visiting couples to explore and
unwind within the lush green countryside landscape as well as experiencing the
classy Holker Hall itself.
The Lake District is one of our favourite
places to visit. It’s even better for honeymooners with so much to explore and
experience in the vast landscape of the Lake District. You can find untouched
lands and places where you can enjoy alone without the hustle and bustle of
The Scenic Cotswolds in South England
Further south again we look to the beautiful Cotswolds. This place is really made for newlyweds and their honeymoon. With excellent spots for food, its attractive mountain views and charming villages; what’s not to love? Added to this, back in 1966 the area was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We suggest taking a day or two out here as
there’s so much to do. With outdoor exploration in hiking and biking to
relaxing in the many eateries in the quaint villages, it’s an area to create
memories and explore.
Here are some of our favourite attractions
in the Cotswolds:
Woodchester Valley Vineyard
This is a fun and different type of
experience for a newlywed couple to try out when visiting the Cotswolds. Winchester
Valley covers three vineyards in the South Cotswolds area. The team here grow
ten different types of grapes here throughout the season.
With tours, tasting and places to stay, we
suggest visiting one of the most popular and widely acclaimed winery’s in the
Kiftsgate Court Garden
With three generations of gardeners looking
after this beautiful area since 1918 it’s a must visit. The gardens at
Kiftsgate have evolved substantially over the years and they’ve become a place
to enjoy a stroll with your loved one as part of your overall trip to the
With several different gardens to visit, a tearoom
and garden shop, you can really lost for hours. A secret gem of the Cotswolds.
Probably the best spa in the Cotswolds is
the C-Side Spa at Cowley Manor. This a place to come and really kick back with
your husband or wife. With two amazing pools; one 17m indoor and 15m outdoor
that are both heated all year round. The area outside comes alive in the summer
months with a bar and sun loungers. For those couples looking to keep up with
their fitness routine while away there is a top class gym onside too. Added to this a full range of treatments are
available in the 4 treatment rooms.
The Cotswold is romance in every sense of
the word. With diverse attractions much like its landscape it’s a one of the
best honeymoon destinations in the United Kingdom.
The Isle of White
The Isle of White is a place where dreams
are made for honeymooners with its unrivalled scenery and endless beach
coastline. With romantic eateries to rival that of those destinations already
mentioned, it ticks all the boxes in a honeymoon should be. Being another area
awarded an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, no wonder it’s become a
favourite for couples.
Let’s now find out where to discover when
Robin Hill Country Park
We all love a theme park and this one is
great for couples with special themed nights which are perfect without the kids
around. Ride and slide your way around
this unique theme park surrounded by 88 acres of scenic countryside and
beautiful green land.
One of the most romantic castles anywhere
in the UK is Carisbrooke. The castle has served various purposes over the
centuries. From a prison to summer residence for the royals. There’s lots to do
here for couples including the Edwardian garden and unrivalled views from the
high castle. Enjoyed a donkey experience and visit the museum to learn more on
the castles history.
This is a unique attraction that offers
couples something different from the other attractions that we’ve mentioned.
Learn about Roman life in Britain with its visitor centre including its
collection of Roman archaeology. Hint: We suggest coming here in the warmer
months to enjoy a lovely picnic for two in its onsite cafe.

more memories and get lost in.
