Take a Romantic Break for Two in England!

Is there anywhere more romantic than Europe? With country estates, crumbling castles, and royal palaces there are few better places in the world to spend a romantic week away with the one you love. If you’ve decided you just need to escape, why not consider one of these top romantic UK breaks for two.

The Lake District

The Lake District, in the North West of England, is an outdoor lover’s paradise. With over 2000 miles of walking and cycling trails to explore, as well as 12 of England’s largest lakes, there is no better place to rewind and relax. Spend your days taking long walks through the English countryside together, and your evenings curled up together in front of a roaring fire in a romantic Lake District holiday cottage. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?


If a city break for two is more your style than the city of York in the North East of England is the place for you. Your time in York will be filled with fascinating history, strolls along the beautiful River Ouse, and leisurely meals at any of the city’s top eateries. A trip to York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to York Minster, one of the world’s most magnificent Gothic cathedrals. Make sure to get a picture of you and your honey under the ‘Heart of Yorkshire’!

St. Ives

Take to the surf and the sand on a romantic break in St. Ives, Cornwall, repeatedly voted the Best UK Seaside Town in the British Travel Awards. This stretch of the Cornish coast is blessed with some of the best weather in the UK, so you can spend as much time as you would like stretched out on the golden sand beaches, or in the water learning to surf. St. Ives is also well known for its artistic heritage and is home to a wealth of talented artists and crafts people.

If you are looking for cozy accommodation for two in any of the most romantic locations in England make sure to visit Sykes Cottages, the UK's leading independent cottage rental agency. With thousands of cottages located throughout the UK and Ireland Sykes Cottages are sure to have the perfect cottage for your romantic break.
