Plan The Perfect Valentine Weekend Away

The new holiday booking season is nearly upon us, every year it goes quiet and then on the 27th of December, the booking season takes off with a bang. The first big event in the calendar for next year is Valentines Day which, in 2020, falls on a Friday. It may be a few weeks away, but we can already see a significant level of interest in Valentines breaks for couples. Let’s face it; all we need a break in the middle of winter and tourism has changed significantly so that many properties are now open all year round.

Planning a Valentines weekend this year could be made even more memorable with a little thought and planning. For example, you will probably be advised to book a table at a local restaurant for the evening well in advance. If you are going to a new location, somewhere where you haven’t been before, booking directly with the owner or a local agent, enables you to ask them for recommendations. Tripadvisor is another good place to research with thousands of restaurants and pubs reviewed on a regular basis, and you can start your search here, .

If you don’t want to dine out in the company of others, you can always enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner in your holiday cottage for just the two of you. Just check with the owner’s that candles are permitted. If you don’t want to spend hours cooking, most local supermarkets will provide you with a choice of ready-made meals to order online and have delivered to your holiday home. You can also order Waitrose valentines meals through Ocado.

For that added little touch, why not order a romantic present for your partner to present over dinner. Flowers and jewellery are always the most popular around Valentines day with a range of big brand names that can deliver flowers wherever you are. From Marks and Spencer’s to e-florist, there are a plethora of delivery services that can deliver your romantic gift at your destination.
