- Cosy up on the coast
Head to the coast for a romantic break on the Yorkshire coast, try picturesque Robin’s Hood Bay, popular Scarborough or the old world charm of Whitby. Stroll along the sea front, hand-in-hand, then stake your claim on the beach, for a day of rest and relaxation. Pack the best beach tent possible, so you can make the most of the seaside, stay all day on the beach and watch a romantic sunset or two with your loved one. Stay in a charming cottage with a coastal view; and cuddle up in front of the fire, while you enjoy a romantic meal for two.

Follow in the footsteps of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora McDonald, when you head to the Isle of Skye.
