The penultimate month is upon us! The clocks have turned back, we’re adjusting to the reality that 6pm bears resemblance to 10pm and what seems to have been a lengthy decent to Christmas has suddenly gained momentum, leaving us to ask the question - mid-November, how did you get here so fast?  The calendar is filling up with festive gatherings and before you can look up and appreciate the final leaves begrudgingly fall, it seems there isn’t another weekend free before the big ‘C’- day itself…

To savour those last few weekends of freedom before the Christmas rush, I have collated 10 of our most magical luxury getaways for two. So go on, squeeze in one last indulgent weekend with your loved one and take a moment to reflect on what 2016 meant to you.



Escape to Libertine; A wonderfully secluded and stylish retreat for couples, sublimely positioned amidst a peaceful milieu of pretty woodland and within easy reach of Cornwall's finest beaches. This south-facing hideaway hunkers down below acres of woodland allowing couples to immerse themselves in all that nature has to offer and stroll hand in hand as they unravel the beauty hidden in all the nooks and crannies of Libertine’s Beatrix Potter-like location.



Escape the winter cold with a heart-warming holiday at this Bahamas-inspired beach hut in east Cornwall, idyllically positioned on the edge of Freathy cliff. With the tropical-themed interior and ocean backdrop, whatever the weather, Islander's beachside location, steaming hot tub and retro panache provide a luxury self-catering homestay to rival those in the tropics - but if you are braving the winter surf, don’t forget your 5mm wetsuit – it’s not really the Bahamas!



Castaway is for the toughened souls amongst you. Tucked away on the south shores of Loch Broom, scamper down the beach from this magical dwelling and dip your toes in the cool waters of the glassy loch after relishing an exhilarating climb up the iconic Munros of Scotland. Castaway promises couples a unique getaway experience like no other… and the hot tub will be the perfect place to sit and chink glasses to the end of 2016.



There’s nothing quite like storm watching from the steaming hot tub, sipping on a flute of Cornish fizz and feeling the salt spray on your face. Blissfully set on Freathy cliff in 'Cornwall's forgotten corner', Daydreamer is as seaside chic as they come. Once you’ve braved the outdoors, curl up together and watch the waves crash in from the comfort of your cliff top retreat.

The Limit


With one hut for sleeping and pillow talk, the other for cooking and cavorting; The Limit offers a truly unique escape for you and your loved one. This quirky 1930's luxury beach hut’s unique position hidden within the sand dunes makes it perfect for romantic winter weekends away. 

The Little Charcuterie 


This dreamy abode sits in the sleepy village of Marhamchurch near Bude in North Cornwall. What better way for lovebirds to relax than by gazing out towards the coast from the suspended daybed with a flute of champagne in hand? A wonderful spot to sit and plot your luxury travel adventures for yeah ahead.

The Ink


Perched above the turquoise waters of Trevaunance Cove in St Agnes, The Ink will relax and calm you with its inky, lagoon theme. Let a pre-Christmas sense of tranquillity wash over you while you plan the final festivities of 2016.  



Embrace the vibrancy of Cornish sunsets and the warmth of flickering flames from the open fireplace at this luxury self-catering homestay in Trebudannon near Watergate Bay. Somerby boasts uninterrupted views across the verdant North Cornish countryside with pastoral panoramas to stir the soul. 



Tickety-Boo is a cosy rustic style cabin in the heart of the countryside, allowing you to plot your new year’s resolutions whilst enjoying a modern country couples retreat. The light and soothing interiors, toasty underfloor heating and woollen throws in abundance will make the perfect nest for two. Observe the tranquillity of the landscape and embrace your restorative retreat with rest and reflection before the giltz and glam of new year’s celebrations.

Two Bare Feet


Just 25 minutes from Newquay airport, book a flight for two and bask in the luxury of this New Zealand inspired love nest near Holywell Bay on the Cornish coast. This is the winter of the staycation and there is a slice of paradise ready and awaiting your arrival right here in the UK.
