Romantic Cottage Breaks

Romantic Cottages for Valentines Breaks

Want to shake the January blues off and have something special to look forward to?  Valentines Day is fast approaching, and the 14th of February will be here soon.  If you are lucky enough to be loved up and to have someone special in your life then why not celebrate the fact with a romantic weekend away or a romantic cottage break.

Romantic breaks can be really appealing when love is new and you want to share special moments with that special person.  There’s nothing quite like being whisked away as a treat to make you feel special and desired.  If you are looking for a romantic retreat do try to sound out your partner and figure out what they like.  Some girls or guys just love rural retreats and are happy to stay anywhere so long as it is comfortable and there are plenty of walks and pleasant scenery around.  Others meanwhile only find 5 star self catering accommodation appealing and simply won’t be in the mood for romantic frollics unless the very best accommodation has been booked.

Budget of course comes in to the equation but if your partner is someone who likes the luxury things in life do try to find the very best that your money can find.  Pay attention to small important things like does the property have good romantic lighting?  Is there a real open fire or a cosy woodburner which many find romantic?  Does the bedroom in particular look romantic?  Planning ahead and taking champagne, wine, flowers and chocolates can all help when it comes to getting the right feel.  Knowing your partner is key to getting things right and ensuring that your romantic cottage break goes without a hitch.

If you have a big budget then really an oasis of choice is open to you.  Four poster beds, cottages with sea views, unusual self catering, cottages with hot tubs, cottages with spas even and 5 star accommodation are all attractive options.  Again there is no substitute for remembering the small important things like champagne and even romantic underwear if your budget stretches to it.

Location is another factor to consider when it comes to romantic breaks away.  If you are taking a short break of only a few nights or a couple of nights remember you probably don’t want to be driving too far so somewhere within a 2 hour drive of your home may be a helpful guide.  Bear in mind whether your partner loves being by the sea, city breaks or time in the country.  Wherever you decide to go, always take time to do your research and make sure that it all feels right before booking so that you can be secure in the knowledge that things should go as planned for that all important romantic break away.
