Put the romance into your holiday

One of the advantages of booking independently is that you get to liaise with the cottage owner directly. Many are more than happy to arrange extra special romantic touches so why not consider having flowers, champagne or chocolates (or all three for a real treat!) in the cottage ready for your arrival. If you’re struggling for ideas, here are some suggestions to help you get your romantic break off to an idyllic start.

Romantic holidays don’t need to be exclusive to anniversaries, honeymoons and Valentine’s Day, so why not whisk your loved one off for a surprise romantic break? A pretty thatched cottage in the country where you can snuggle up in front of a roaring fire with a cup of cocoa or a log cabin with a hot tub – perfect for star gazing and enjoying a glass of champagne together.

If you cannot find what you’re looking for here, we also have many other fantastic holiday homes in fairy-tale locations, not included in this section. Feel free to search the rest of the website for your dream cottage or take a look at our romantic destinations for inspiration. We can even recommend some romantic things to do to make your break extra memorable.

Tips: If you’re booking a cottage with a hot tub and want exclusive use and privacy, check whether the facility is shared with anyone else before booking (you may also need to take towels for the hot tub and plastic glasses if you want to enjoy a glass of bubbly whilst soaking!). If the cottage has a fire, find out if fire wood is provided and if not, pick up a bag of dry wood and matches in advance ready for your first night. Why not take a bottle of champagne chilling in the car ready to enjoy as soon as you arrive?
