While the latest Covid-19 restrictions mean your autumn or winter wedding guest list may be a little smaller than you planned for, this doesn’t mean you can’t go big with your honeymoon. Recent events have also made travel overseas a particular challenge for newlyweds.
Yet, with the staycation reigning supreme right now, there’s no better time to embrace the UK’s most romantic places.
Whether you’re looking to enjoy a mini-moon or a full-blown honeymoon, we’re certain you’ll fall in love all over again when holidaying in these dreamy UK-based destinations.
Isle of Skye
Swap plane travel for a ferry ride. Head to the Isle of Skye for your honeymoon. A great destination for couples who love the outdoors, the Isle of Skye offers plenty to see – with hiking and walking routes galore. The Scottish island’s waterfront villages are picture-perfect.
No Isle of Skye itinerary would be complete without a visit to the utterly iconic and simply magical Fairy Pools.
We’ll let Brittney from The Blonde’s Eye View explain more about her experience of the pools during a romantic break to Skye:
“This series of ponds and waterfalls and swimming holes carries a mythical tropical blue color, and flows through the vast Scottish landscape with nary a man-made thing in sight.
The water is so crystal clear it feels like you could scoop up a glass, and it would radiate tropical blue right through the glass.
We held hands and explored, jumped through ponds and pools, walked through the meadow, and shared the feelings of awe from just how special this place was.”
The Lake District offers many stunning and romantic destinations, whether you’re a lover of the outdoors or would like to hole up in a cottage with a log burning fire for the duration of your honeymoon. Windermere is a great choice for those looking to hike its many hills, fells and lovely lakes by day and enjoy an intimate dinner for two come evening.
If exploring picturesque, chocolate box villages is more your thing then you’ll be spoilt for choice in the Cotswolds. The Cotswolds is a stunning part of the UK. Home to quintessential villages, cobbled streets, and the unspoilt countryside. It’s also home to countless pubs, each as snug as the last.
Couples wanting a more active honeymoon should head to the capital. London boasts a long list of attractions, meaning newlyweds will find heaps to occupy them. London may not spring to mind when you think of romance, but it’s a great destination for experiencing something new together and making even more great memories as a couple.
