10 properties for your fairytale break
This thatched cottage in the countryside could have been made for Valentine’s breaks. With rural views, a roll top bathtub and a super king size bed…we honestly can’t think of anywhere else we’d rather cosy up.
This one’s for those of you who like a little luxury with your romance. While away your evenings in the sunken hot tub with the mood lighting on, before heading inside to warm up in front of the log burner. Best of all, the terrace ceiling has twinkling stars…
Set just behind Porthmeor Beach, this quirky Cornish bolthole’s so dreamy it hurts. Think rustic chic and feature walls, a quirky stone finish in the bedroom and a fireplace for those evenings in. Moon Shadow’s one of our favourites, and it’s been designed for chill out time.

Would you look at that view? Perched on a windswept cliff in Cornwall, The Dell’s a beautiful little bolthole with panoramic views out to sea. Just imagine watching the sun set behind the sea from your living area while you sip on a glass of bubbly…now that’s romance.
If you’ve been dreaming of a break spent wandering the Dales hand in hand, this traditional little cottage is the perfect base. With country views every way you look, you’ll step outside and have your pick of trails to wander – and that’s what Yorkshire’s all about.
With its own spa and indoor pool, life at The Una St Ives resort’s about as laidback as you can get. With French doors that lead out to your own decked area and a super king size bed to boot, this one’s for those of you in need of some...
