Valentines Day Ideas
Weekend Breaks

Valentines Day is all about love, romance and celebrating that special someone in your life. How better to spend that time than with a weekend break where the world revolves around the two of you? England offers so many Valentines Day ideas for couples in locations all the way from the tip right down to the south coast.

Your first option would be to get away from it all on a cosy cottage escape. There are cute cottages nestled into the countryside across England, which you can rent for the perfect romantic break.

Enjoy the delights of open fires, self-catering kitchens, cosy rooms and most importantly, nobody to interrupt you! Stay in a coastguard cottage in Dorset, a rural haven in Somerset or a secluded cottage near the wild Yorkshire moors – the choice is endless.

Alternatively, there are hundreds of luxury hotels in England that offer romantic packages including meals, drinks and access to luxurious spas and health suites. The Hotel Maiyango in Leicester gives couples the chance to concoct their own romance by learning the art of cookery and cocktails. At Alnwick Gardens in Northumberland you can enjoy a treetop candlelit dinner, which you're sure to remember forever. It's the ideal romantic treat for weekend breaks.

For active couples, we have plenty of Valentines Day Ideas for activities that get the adrenalin pumping. Try indoor skydiving at Bodyflight in Bedford, where you can also have a go at England's highest simulated BASE jump.

For winter sports fans, the Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead and the Snowdome in Milton Keynes offer snowboarding and skiing activities. Have a go at whatever makes you smile on your Valentine's Day!

Do you love romantic films? Many award winning movies like Atonement, Pride and Prejudice and Shakespeare in Love were filmed in the beautiful English countryside, and many more like Notting Hill were filmed in England's cities.

Valentine's Day weekend breaks are the perfect time to visit the memorable locations of these films and relive moments such as Mr Darcy proposing to Elizabeth or Julia Roberts telling Hugh Grant that she was 'just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her'.

Stokesay Court, where Atonement was filmed, offers guided tours and makes an ideal setting for a romantic stroll.

Valentine's Day is the perfect time to spoil your loved one and enjoy a well-earned break together. Escape on a weekend away in England and fall in love all over again!
