If you’re looking to enjoy a quiet retreat with a loved one, there is nothing better than seeking out a secluded holiday cottage and hunkering down with all the luxuries at hand.

Whether you are after a hot tub or a cute cabin.  Or you fancy giving glamping a go, discover four of our most romantic holiday cottages to stay in anytime of the year.

Try something different with a Shepherd’s Hut

Boasting an open plan kitchen, dining and living area, as well as a double bed and shower room, Moor Skies is a delightful two-person Shepherd's Hut, perfect for couples. 

It is situated on the owner’s grounds on the outskirts on Oxenhope in West Yorkshire, offering far-reaching views of the region’s spectacular rolling hills. What a view to wake up to in the morning!

Moor Skies is the perfect base to explore all this charming village has to offer. Take a browse in the local shops, wander around the 19th century church and enjoy some delicious grub in one of the many picture-perfect pubs. 

And afterwards, take a stroll through the “wild, rugged and barren” countryside; as described by the Bronte sisters in Wuthering Heights. 

Indulge in a little luxury with a hot tub

Located in the grounds of a hotel in Hartland Peninsula, North Devon sits a wonderful studio apartment with a pull-down double bed, kitchen space and sitting area, and separate shower room.

But it is outside that really has the wow factor, boasting a delightful private courtyard with a hot tub for you and your loved one to enjoy some quality time together in. 

When out of the apartment, the local area can be explored by foot. Head to the North York National Park, which offers an array of landscape to discover including cliffs, coves and magnificent coastline. 

Then in the town of Malton, why not seek out its many interesting buildings, including the old Corn Exchange?

And be sure to check out the famous Saturday market, showcasing gifts, interiors, fashion, food and bargains for you to take home with you. 

Get cosy in a self-contained pod

Nesting within the grounds of Old Swarland Hall near the charming village of Swarland, this wonderfully spacious wooden clad pod makes the perfect unique getaway for two.

Inside, there’s a comfortable double bed, an en-suite wet room, and kitchenette area with a breakfast bar. 

The French doors lead out onto the decking and porch area, where you can enjoy breakfast in the sun while taking in the surrounding countryside views.

And with plenty to explore, including quaint Northumberland fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and the historic Hadrian's Wall, there’s so much to see and do before you relax and unwind in your pod when the sun goes down. 

Get closer to nature and go glamping!

There is nothing more romantic than sleeping under the stars, so for a truly amorous getaway, why not give glamping a go?

The Yurt in Beckford, Gloucestershire offers a slow-paced couples break you’ll that you and your partner will love.

Set in a peaceful location by the owner's fishing lake, this open plan holiday home features a double bed, kitchen and dining area, and stunning roll-top bath. 

From the dining spot, you’ll be exposed to the beautiful lake views. And you can even use the owner’s field, hot tub and outdoor swimming pool, should you wish. If you need the perfect place to relax, unwind and switch off, this is it.
