Holidays are great, but a couple’s getaway doesn’t have to last for weeks. Arguably, romantic short breaks are healthier for relationships. With less stress in planning and finances, you can take more short trips more often. Romantic breaks consistently breathe life into relationships by building distinct, fond memories, so having more breaks means more distinct memories which leads to a more solid foundation for the relationship. So yes, while you could go out to a new restaurant or check out the new play at the theatre this weekend, why not step it up a notch and take a romantic weekend break in the countryside instead?
Couples’ trips neither have to be long nor far away. Romance does not solely exist on the beach. A quick weekend trip to another European city can be spontaneous, exciting and a gorgeous setting for a romantic break. Paris and Venice are the obvious choices, but both can be stressful, both in getting there and being there. You don’t need to cross the border to find something completely new, though. There are so many precious English inns in all the pastoral countrysides of the UK that are just a short drive away. Sleep in king-sized four-poster beds, canopied and draped in velvets and tulle, and wake up to rolling green hills and a homey warm breakfast - whenever it is that you two get out of bed, that is. It is the weekend, after all, and why shouldn’t romantic one be spent in bed?
If you want to be more active in your romantic breaks, enjoy a nature walk and spend the night camping under stars. If you’re not the rugged type but want nature with all of your creature comforts, consider glamping – glamourous camping. Stay in eco-farms, decked out canvas tents, yurts, caravans, ships, and more unique settings that are complete with electricity, mattresses and sometimes even WiFi. Campsites and glampsites are located all across the UK and Europe, ready to provide you and your loved one a change in scenery with their gorgeous sites.
