Why booking a holiday cottage for Valentine’s Day makes the perfect present!

As you look ahead through the calendar, willing a miserably wet January onwards, you will have no doubt already noticed that there’s just a month left until Valentine’s Day.

And if your heart is sinking at the thought of receiving yet another box of average chocolates (to add to the hidden Christmas stash you still haven’t worked your way through) then you might want to drop a few well-placed hints!

Of course, if you’re the one doing the buying, then now might be the time to consider something completely different.

So, step away from the chocs. Leave the petrol station carnations in their faded buckets. And plan ahead to make Valentine’s Day this year one to remember!

Here at Holiday Cottage Compare, we are passionate about matching holidaymakers with their perfect holiday cottage. And fortunately, we have some cracking options for you over the Valentine period, including the following 3 cottages:

The Workshop Badingham Suffolk

The Workshop, Badingham, Suffolk

This converted Victorian stable building has been featured by The Sunday Times, The Guardian, and Conde Nast Traveller – and it’s not hard to see why!

Within easy reach of the Suffolk coast, its chic, stylist and minimalist interior is particularly striking, featuring several pieces by designers such as Eero Saarinen.

Sliding doors look out over a meadow, adding to the interior calm of this cottage. And the bedroom, complete with crisp Egyptian cotton bedding, features a huge circular shower cubicle.

As you would expect, the property is well equipped, with a large flat screen TV, wood burning stove, Sky Freesat, IPod docking station and Wi-Fi.

A 7 night stay in The Workshop costs £451 from 12th February.

Secret Island Yurt in Beckford in Gloucestershire

Secret Island Yurt in Beckford, Gloucestershire

This would make the perfect quirky escape! Set on an island on the edge of lake, you would be amazed to find what is inside this unusual holiday cottage – a mezzanine king-size double bed, kitchen, dining area, sitting area with woodburner-effect gas stove plus a luxury roll-top bath.

Better still, you can access your own private sauna from within the yurt – or perhaps you would prefer to take in the lake views via the private hot tub instead?

And if you are feeling energetic, why not explore the area using either the bikes or boat provided?!

A 7 night stay in Secret Island Yurt costs £534 from 12th February.
