Love is in the air: How to create the ultimate Valentine’s getaway
The time of chocolates, roses and romance is fast approaching and what better way to show some love than to create the ultimate valentine’s getaway. Planning a surprise trip may seem daunting but it’ll all be worth it when you see your partners face. If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got you covered with these tips on how to create your own ultimate valentine’s getaway.
The perfect location
It may seem obvious, but the first step is choosing the perfect location. If you don’t fancy jet setting it abroad, there plenty of fantastic UK destinations which will provide you with the ideal romantic break.
Whether you’re all about cosying up in front of the fireplace, or prefer a more action packed weekend away, try pick somewhere you’ll both love. For a private luxury getaway with a coastal feel why not head to the south and stay in Devon holiday cottages from Lyme Bay Holidays. Perfect for relaxing and unwinding together, Devon boasts a variety of top restaurants, endless beaches, a national park and fantastic scenery to explore with your loved one.
Keep it a surprise
There are a few things to consider when you begin planning your getaway in order to keep it a surprise. Firstly, you need to be sure that your partner is free for the dates you have selected, but keeping it close to Valentine’s Day means it’s a pretty safe bet they should be free.
Try to make sure when you book anything for your trip that you don’t leave any internet browsers open with any of the details! Then comes the difficult part of keeping it a secret until the day. It may be easier to surprise your partner with the trip on the day you travel rather than try get them to the destination without them finding out – although if you can do that, more power to you!
Packing for two
When packing for the trip make sure to start with the basics. Check the weather forecast and consider any activities you may take part in and pack accordingly. Most importantly; don’t panic! If you forget anything there will no doubt be a shop you can pick up any essentials from.
If you’re planning on a complete surprise you may need to pack for your partner and become super sneaky. Make sure you do it whilst they are out and don’t pack anything they may need before the trip!
To make your trip extra special why not plan some activities or surprises for your significant other for once you arrive. Asking for flowers and champagne to be waiting at your accommodation, or researching the best spots to see sunset together will be sure to add the extra touch to your Valentines getaway.
If you’re a foodie, why not book a romantic meal at a nearby restaurant, but remember to get this in early as Valentines Day will be sure to book up. Or perhaps if you fancy yourself a chef and you’re accommodation allows, you could always rustle up your partners favourite meal!
Valentine’s is the perfect time to get away as a couple and with careful planning you can create the ultimate getaway for you and your significant other. So why not treat your loved one to more than just a card this February 14th and spend some quality time together, just you two.
