Top Tips For A Romantic Winter Getaway

Keeping the flames of romance alive in a relationship is something we all strive to do, even if we’ve been together for decades. But doing so at home where there is always “something to do” is easier said than done. That’s why many of us still swear by the romantic getaway.

Now that the winter months are upon us and the nights are getting longer, the time is arguably ideal for a little romance. But if you’re planning a romantic holiday in the next few months, here are a few tips to start those embers burning.

Plan ahead

To avoid last-minute chaos, plan the getaway as far in advance as possible. This means sorting out babysitting for the kids and the pets, booking flights (we know how unpredictable they can be right now) and ensuring that everything is ok at work. You might be able to get a slightly better deal if you leave it to the last minute, but it could also leave you in a world of immense stress.

Pick a peaceful location

There’s nothing wrong with booking a romantic trip to Disneyland if that’s your bag but, let’s be honest, what you really want is to just chill out with a few glasses of wine and the stars. Right? Check out caravans and holiday homes in UK holiday locations like North Wales with lots of beautiful nature.

Go to a fancy restaurant

Not everyone is a born foodie, but we can all appreciate the joys of decadent food. Of course, for you that could mean a greasy burger and a few beers but there is an undeniable “extra something” about Michelin-star dining that makes everything feel so much more elevated and, yes, romantic.

Don’t talk about reality

Talking about something like finance can take you right back to reality so while you might not be able to completely forget about your issues at home, don’t talk about them. Try to shut off from your everyday troubles and just enjoy spending time together.

Hike up a mountain

I'm not joking here. Going for a hike with just the two of you can actually be an incredibly romantic experience, particularly if it ends up in a log cabin with a warm fire. You might even be lucky enough to catch a sunset or a sunrise together and there are few things in life as romantic as that. Just don’t forget to bring the first aid kit.

Plan a surprise!

Your other half might say they hate surprises but that’s probably just because they’ve never had a surprise they genuinely wanted. Try to save at least one major surprise to spring on your beloved towards the end of the getaway and you’ll be returning home from your romantic holiday on a promising note.
