Looking for the perfect spot for a romantic weekend away in the UK? Maybe romance isn't for you, but a girls' weekend sounds like something you could definitely get on board with? We've rounded up the 3 most beautiful places in the UK to head to if you're looking a special weekend away - whether that's for Valentine's, Galentine's or just a treat-yoself-entine's...
Because what could be more romantic than strolling hand-in-hand whilst taking in the breath-taking views that only the Lake District can offer?
In fact, in a recent poll for Snaptrip, 56% of Brits surveyed agreed that the Lake District is Britain’s most romantic destination.
Arguably one of the best places to propose in the UK, secluded Ennerdale Water was home to Bill Clinton's proposal to Hillary (albeit not the happiest of endings, but we're sure the proposal was romantic nonetheless!).
Inspired by long walks exploring the lakes, mountains and valleys of the breath-taking Lake District, our Lakes products are beautifully scented with Freshwater Minerals - a fresh, earthy accord with a woody, mineral base.
Soak up the inspiration for the Brontë sisters' world-famous romantic novels with a visit to the wild Yorkshire moors. Or if indoor romance is more your thing, explore the chocolatiers, museums and bars of beautiful York. To really seal the deal, head to the West Window of York Minster - kissing your partner here is said to mean that you will stay together forever. Whilst here, look up at the window to see the heart-shape worked into the tracery, known as the ‘Heart of Yorkshire’.
Inspired by the ‘White Rose of York’, our Yorkshire products are beautifully scented with Yorkshire Rose - a stunning, fresh and soft rose fragrance.
If you're a Bridget-Jones-style hopeless romantic, Cambridge is the place for you, with endless romantic activities to fill the day. For the most romantic things to do in Cambridge, take a scenic walk through the cobbled streets of the city; take the weight off your feet and travel on two wheels with a romantic bike ride, or (my personal favourite), take to the water and punt down the River Cam, spotting the many historic colleges and bridges as you go, all topped off of course with a delicious picnic in The Botanic Gardens.
A rich, subtly sweet scent inspired by memories of homemade blackcurrant jam. Picture warm afternoons on a Cambridgeshire fruit farm, baskets filled with colourful soft fruits, sweet and floral scents filling the air.
Of course romance is all relative - certain locations hold special meaning for all sorts of reasons - from the place you first met, to where you were engaged or the spot you tied the knot. To evoke your fondest memories, explore our full County Collection or, for a truly romantic Valentine's Day gift, bring your love story to life with a bespoke Candle Trio Gift Set.
