Your wedding day may be the most expensive day you will ever have to host and organise. After the dress, suits, food, venue, decorations and cake, it might be tempting to ditch the honeymoon (temporarily of course) to help keep your costs down – but this doesn’t have to be the case. The UK has tons of staycation honeymoon locations to choose from so we’ve pulled together some of the best that you and your other half will love!
- Beachside Staycation
The UK weather can be unpredictable at times but that doesn’t mean you have to abandon the idea of a romantic beach holiday. Cornwall, Norfolk and Devon are known to hold some of the most stunning beaches in Europe and the sunsets are never one to miss! You can fill your days walking along the shore, beachcombing for souvenirs, or even take some surfing lessons. It’s the perfect choice for a relaxing yet active break.
- Woodland hideaways
Your first trip as a married couple should be special and one to remember for years to come. If you’re looking for some alone time, then a romantic woodland hideaway would be perfect for you and your other half to unwind and celebrate the start of married life. It’s the perfect option for winter honeymoons as you can cosy up by the fire in your very own log cabin, tucked away in the depths of the woods.
- Roadtrip bliss
Looking for your staycation honeymoon destination can be overwhelming, as there are tons to choose from – but you shouldn’t limit yourself to just one! You can hire a campervan for a week or two and the whole country can be your oyster. List all the different options you have and plan your route. Traffic is something the UK is known for, so we recommend setting off at non peak times and days where you know the roads will be quiet. If you’re stuck on ideas on where to go, you can always ask your wedding guests for suggestions and pick a few from a hat – a fun way to adventure into the unknown.
- Traditional British cottages
England is a proud owner of some of the most beautiful cottages around the world. Cosy and packed with character, they are the perfect way to unwind next to a roaring fire and take in the English countryside. Visit some of England’s most romantic counties such as Stratford Upon Avon. Shakespeare wrote some of the greatest love stories, and it’s not difficult to see where he got his inspiration from. Visit Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, or the birthplace of Shakespeare himself!
- Follow the footsteps of the Royals
The historic town of Windsor has been in the spotlight in the recent years due to many members of the Royal Family choosing to tie the knot in the iconic Windsor Castle. This picturesque riverside location is the perfect ‘mini moon’ location, and it is clear to see why. Windsor offers stunning and romantic cobbled streets with riverside views to add to its quaint small town charm. Stay at Sir Christopher Wren Hotel & Spa and enjoy everything Windsor has to offer right on your doorstep. Just a stone throw away from Windsor Castle and it’s the only hotel in Windsor situated right on the River Thames.
