There’s been a mass of people talking about ‘the’ places to holiday in the UK. I’m sure we all know someone who’s chosen Cornwall instead of Connecticut or Scotland instead of the Seychelles. Well the same goes for Honeymoons. An increasing amount of people are wising up to the adventures that can be had closer to home – saving a small fortune in the meantime.
Responsible travel is hot off the marks on pointing out some top hot spots for those soon to be newlyweds who are looking for something special while still wanting to save some cash this year.
Here is our top 3 staycation-moon spots;
Organic farm stay in Somerset
This 15th centaury farmhouse offers a gorgeous B&B stay with a great choice of activities to spend those newlywed days together. You can take a course in bread making, falconry, organic gardening or art. If a B&B doesn’t take your fancy you can also take a look at their self catering or camping options.
Luxury B&B in Devon:
If you want to splash out (and why not, you’ve saved heaps on that flight remember?!) then go for a suite. You’ll find a king size 4 poster water bed, a private conservatory and your own private garden with koi pond (sounds swish!). There’s even a hot tub in the woods to use…
And for something totally different, a yurt in the Isle of Wight:
If you’re looking to save cash, reduce your impact on the environment and experience something totally different then this is the honeymoon for you. You’ll be staying in a Mongolian yurt tent or traditional ball tent, eating locally produced food and experiencing a range of activities from waterskiing to tai-chi, depending upon how your mood takes you.
