Rugged Coastlines and Vampire Kisses

Book yourself into a cosy beach hut or a book a tipi, curl up by the wood burner and indulge with a Champagne hamper. With over 300 miles of coastline to explore in Cornwall, romantic couples can also drive down to St Ives for some art and culture at the Tate gallery, finished with fish and chips on the beach.

For those who prefer a bit of gothic romance, they can create their own ‘Twilight’ saga in Whitby, Yorkshire. This coastal town was put on the map when it was featured in Bram Stoker’s novel, ‘Dracula’. High on the cliffs sit the ruins of Whitby Abbey, offering a dramatic backdrop to any romantic weekend. For those hoping to find their very own Edward Cullen, where better than St Mary’s graveyard to follow in Dracula’s footsteps? Alternatively, couples can get cosy aboard a steam train for some vintage style romance, allowing them to take in the stunning views of the North Yorkshire Moors.

Star Crossed Lovers

For lovers who really fancy getting off the beaten path, a trip to Galloway Forest Park, in South West Scotland is the perfect getaway. As one of the first Dark Sky Parks in Europe, Galloway Forest offers romantic couples a chance to gaze at the Milkyway together and spot far off galaxies. And during the day the park is home to stunning wildlife, as well as offering adventure activities, such as mountain biking.

Alternatively, couples keen to get away from the bright lights of the city can head to Exmoor National Park, Europe’s first International Dark Sky Reserve. And with the delights of Devon on your doorstep, there will be plenty to do, once the sun comes up.
