November is the season for lovers. For the babymooners and honeymooners and just-becausers. For the newly in love and the septuagenarian sages celebrating diamond anniversaries. With winter festivities twinkling on the UK's ever-darkening horizon, and thoughts of great big family gatherings creeping in, thereís important things for couples to do before their calendars fill. The time is nigh to hunker down, to sink into hot tubs beneath starry skies, to go early to bed as the winds howl outside.

From dog-friendly cottages containing lots of little luxuries to hot tub hideaways that hang over secret Cornish beaches, what lovers donít wish for a winter getaway? Farewell busy, hello hygge; here we round up our snuggest love nests in some of the UKís most romantic places for couples to stay.


A Welsh jewel that sits in sweet seclusion on the hills of Snowdonia, Idlewylde is an impossibly romantic cottage for couples. True to its name, this is an idyllic home in the wilds, cobbled together with local slate, antique carved doors, and theatre seats from a 1920's auditorium. In this patchwork palace made for luxury weekend breaks for two, go off on long woodland rambles before spotting peregrine falcons from the bubbling hot tub. Two well-behaved dogs are welcome, so scoop up your fur-babies and off you pop over Angel River.

The Hide

Just a stoneís throw away from Perranporth, named one of the†best†sandy beaches in the UK, The Hide is what happens when contemporary minimalism meets wabi-sabi aesthetics. A tiny house for two with lofty ambitions, this is a place where modern luxury reigns. All the romantic frills are here, from its garden hot tub to its velveteen L-shaped sofa, its huge poured-concrete bathtub to its sloped window box that brings the outside in. Strike a match to the outdoor fire pit for a spot of marshmallow roasting while the dogs have sweet dreams about their Cornish coastal getaway.


Lovers, meet Orlagh; a secluded coastal getaway thatís as romantic as they come. With the fridge already stocked with Prosecco, homemade scones, and Cornish clotted cream, here is the place for a fizzy afternoon tea in bed. A cliff-hanging hot tub and rugged cliff track that winds down to Whitsand Bay's sandy beach make this a UK couplesí getaway to rival any Californian love nest. And should the weather change, stuff the woodburner with kindling and busy yourselves with board games for a loversí Sunday spent indoors.

Sea Sentry

A blink-and-youíll-miss-it tiny house on the coast, Sea Sentry must be amongst the quirkiest places for a British honeymoon. This diddy Devon shack could be lifted from a romcom; with a history that dates back to the Second World War, and a recent television feature on George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, itís considered one of the most unique luxury self-catering homestays in the West Country. Weave your loversí story into the tapestry of this former artistsí studio, becoming a habituť of Shaldon village when the sun shines. Then,†when the clouds burst overhead, batten down the hatches with a front row seat to winter, together.

The Sorting Office

A mid-18th century post office turned luxury thatched cottage, The Sorting Office is a could-be gingerbread house with romantic bones and a modern twist. A secluded getaway where couples can take advantage of lower rates during the winter season, couples on their British babymoon can come here to be calmed by the slow pace of life in Hampshireís New Forest, taking long name-debating walks on narrow country footpaths before lounging by the fireside with homemade mocktails.

Isla Windmill

A whitewashed beacon anointed in tones of blush and mustard, Isla Windmill is made for bolting lovers seeking romance by the crashing sea. A once-neglected flour mill turned luxury dog-friendly cottage, couples can benefit from exclusive smaller group options during the winter season - and no one to share the hot tub with. Follow directions that might be lifted from a storybook, taking the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Footpath to Puffin Island and down to the white stone beach, where brave romantics can strip down to underthings for a cold-water dip in the sea surrounding Walesī largest island.
