Minimoons are the perfect way to spend quality time with your partner after your special day. There are many destinations all over the UK that have the perfect romantic setting to help couples relax and enjoy each other’s company after their wedding.
With the average cost of a UK wedding now at £25,000¹, newlyweds may be tempted to keep their feet firmly on home ground to manage costs after the big day.
But they don’t have to go without a honeymoon, as a poll2 by last minute cottage provider, Snaptrip, has revealed that British holiday spots can feel just as romantic.
A poll of 1,000 Brits revealed that the Lake District (56%) takes the crown as the place most people would most like to go for a romantic break, followed by Cornwall (37%) and the Cotswolds (26%).
And we’re particularly keen on a romantic setting to get in the mood, with a lakefront or beach setting topping the list of romantic spots:
A lakefront (23%)
A beach (22%)
The countryside (21%)
A mountain (12%)
A city (10%)
So, you have the location and setting down, but what about the getaway itself? Brits revealed the top ten activities or features which make them feel the most romantic:
Romantic walk (47%)
A meal out (46%)
A romantic break (46%)
Log fire (39%)
A thoughtful/personalised gift (27%)
Four poster bed (22%)
A meal in (22%)
Looking closely at what couples think the best aphrodisiacs are whilst on holiday in the UK, it seems men and women have different ideas – over half (53%) of men said a lake view is most likely to inspire romance, while women gave a sunset (48%) the top spot.
Matt Fox, CEO at Snaptrip said: “Getting away from it all and spending quality time after a hectic wedding with your partner is really important. Going away on a romantic break can help create lifelong memories which add to the foundation of any relationship.
“It’s lovely to see British couples embracing the romantic destinations we have here on home soil, as we really are spoilt for choice when it comes to picturesque getaways!”
