Top tips for a more romantic UK holiday

When you travel with your partner, your thoughts are obviously going to turn to romance. Even if your holiday is all about the adventure, you’re going to want to spend a little time on the romance side of things as well.

There’s no finer way to get the spark back in a relationship than a well-timed and perfect break from the world so that you can focus on each other. Knowing how to plan the perfect romantic getaway is the key.

If you’re heading off on an adventure together and you’re worried about getting the right romantic tone, then here are some of the best ideas for bringing the romance and showing your partner just how much you love them.

Romantic dinner

Dress up

If there’s one holiday where you absolutely must pack your best dress or most striking suit, then it’s when you’re on a romantic break away. You’re going to want to look your best as much as possible. Pack your favourite shoes and accessories, and make sure that you pack the clothes that your partner likes too. There’s nothing quite like seeing the love of your life lounging around in their favourite t-shirt and jeans, but be prepared for posh date nights in fancy and romantic restaurants as well.

Get the adrenaline pumping

There’s a reason why horror movies and roller coasters are popular options for dates. The adrenaline boosts your need for comfort, and it can even make you want more physical contact. Try something new and exciting, and the more that it gets your adrenaline racing the better. Hot air balloon rides, bungee jumps, or paragliding might not be for everyone, but finding the right exciting activity could bring you closer together.

Recipes for love

If you are a dab hand in the kitchen, then you should definitely take the time to prepare some meals together. Make sure that your holiday accommodations have a self-catering option and cooking facilities, like the beautiful holiday cottages on the South Downs. Head to the local suppliers and get some fresh, quality food that you can prepare and cook together. Get a good bottle of wine to accompany your food and think about the washing up tomorrow.

Put away your phone

It can be hard to turn your phone off, but you’re going to want to focus your attention on your partner. If you’re staring at Facebook instead of gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes, then you’re not doing romance right. Ditch the phones, and take a camera if you’re set on taking some memorable pics together. Have set times to do a social media and email check, and you’ll be less worried about what’s happening in the world, and more focused on the romance and what’s happening between the two of you.

Going away together can make or break a relationship. Follow my simple tips to make sure that you do all that you can in advance so that your romantic break is as love-filled and relaxing as possible. Get the romance right, and your relationship could end up being stronger than ever.
