How to find the best romantic retreat for your break

Romantic Cottages

Let us guide you to finding the perfect romantic cottage for you. Do your research, find out what your partner likes and would appreciate.  Once you have this information, plan your trip down to the last detail so that you have everything you need.

People find different things make them feel amorous.  For some, a castle is their ideal for a romantic self catering break.  Whereas others may find a cosy cottage for two with a log burner or hot tub more inspiring.  Others still dream of a rural retreat away from it all.  Luxury accommodation can be particularly good for loved up cottage breaks but it does very much depend on personal tastes.  Whichever type of romantic holiday home you opt for, it's important that you both feel free and easy to enjoy your break to the maximum. 

There are some sure ways that help with creating the right mood for romance.  These include candles or low level lighting which always help to create a good atmosphere for relighting your passion.  Flowers and rose petals are other favourites for creating the right atmosphere.  Champagne and chocolates too never go amiss.

Booking a special break away to rekindle that passion is a perfect opportunity to treat that special someone in your life and show them that you care.

If you just adore cottages with beautiful furnishings and know that kind of property would appeal to your loved one, why not take a look at cottages with beautiful interiors?

Booking a romantic break somewhere a little out of the ordinary has the advantage of making a break away really memorable and feel really special.  Take a look at some unusual self catering for ideas of somewhere a little bit different for a romantic cottage getaway.

If you need some inspiration to find the right cottage for you, browse through the details of the romantic retreats below and remember that it is never too late, there will be a last minute romantic cottage for you as well.
