So, whether you’re thinking of popping the question, or just looking to earn some brownie points, here is our list of romance-inspired locations of love.

Love in the Lake District

Love in the Lake District

A romantic getaway for couples that we simply couldn’t leave off the list. The Lake District is a unique embodiment of beauty within the UK’s borders. Gently rolling hills combine with charming villages to create a timeless atmosphere- one that possesses an abundance of romance all year round.

We love to bring our plus ones to Lake Windermere, the country’s largest lake nestled in the heart of this National Park. The incredible views in this area mark the perfect spot for a grand gesture, or for adventurous activity across the water on a cruise or even on a hot air balloon. Sit back and relax as the romance blossoms....

Bathe in Bath

Bathe in Bath

This is the town to relax and rejuvenate with your partner. It's easy to see why Bath consistently punches above its weight with tourists. The town consistently finishing in the top 10 most visited English cities year after year. From the Roman Baths that gave the town its name and made it famous, to the pretty Pulteney Bridge, you’re both spoilt for things to take in and enjoy in this corner of Somerset. With natural hot springs, historical monuments and Georgian architecture, the town is the perfect blend of comfort and culture.

Theatres, museums and art galleries are at what seems like every corner, so neither of you will be stuck for something immerse yourself in. For sheer variety, this one of the UK’s best romantic getaways for couples.

Passion in Portmeirion

Passion in Portmeirion

Portmeirion is a special, special place that has all the ingredients needed for a couple’s escape. Designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975, every care and attention was given over this 50-year period to try and replicate a traditional Italian village. Ambitious architecture combines with stunning Welsh views to bring you both one of the best romantic getaways for couples.

Take each other’s hands at the Central Piazza and marvel at the slopes and arches of the town’s Gothic Pavilion. A simple stroll through its streets throws up all kinds of quirky features and colourful buildings, with one of the most stunning beaches in Wales just a stone’s throw away. Morfa Bychan is no more than a 10-minute drive.

Endearment in Edinburgh

Endearment in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the second most visited place in the UK, higher in the table than cities with a far greater population than its own. It offers an abundance of sights and sounds for couples, with the historic castle being up there as the pick of the bunch. It’s an ideal setting for any romantic gesture at any time of year, this isn’t just a romantic hideaway for Hogmanay!

Quaint streets and charming restaurants are at your disposal when you visit here, with eye catching columns on Princes Street one place we think you’d both love. Grand gestures call for grand locations. Whether you’re planning one or simply feeling energetic, you must climb to the peak of Arthur’s Seat. Here you’ll see a stunning view of the city in all its glory- confirming that it’s one of the best places for a romantic getaway.

Devotion at Durdle Door

Devotion at Durdle Door

We often talk about the best of the British coastline here at Haven, but in terms of romance nothing quite compares to the beauty of Dorset’s Durdle Door. Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, this natural archway is said to have been created 140 million years ago by waves that eroded its middle. There are beautiful vistas both up on the cliffs and down on the beach, making this one of the most picture-perfect natural landmarks in the UK. Stop for a picnic, admire each other and the view, and breathe in the fresh coastal air. If the weather is behaving itself, you could even enjoy an afternoon swimming together in the sea!
