Our top romantic breaks

Kirsty Fensome 02 February 2018

An anniversary, a birthday, or just a surprise gesture – a romantic break doesn’t need an occasion but it is something that is always welcome. At The Little Domain, we specialise in romantic breaks with many of our small cottages perfectly suited for such an event.

However you’d like to spend a couple’s break, our wide range of holidays cater for every imaginable need and requirement. Whether you’re looking for stunning views across the sea or countryside, outstanding facilities such as hot tubs or warming log fires, or just a simple bolthole in which to enjoy each other’s company, you will find it with us.


A romantic coastal retreat is the perfect way to recharge your batteries, as you enjoy bracing walks along the meandering coastline, and stop off to sample local delicacies in cafes, bars, and restaurants. With a clear schedule, you’ll soon be able prioritise enjoying well-earned quality time together and let your mind settle on the things that really matter. Enjoy extraordinary views over the horizon and create lasting memories in our extra-special coastal locations, such as the idyllic St Ives in Cornwall, where you can wander down cobbled lanes, explore quaint shops, and indulge with a candlelit meal in one of the many fantastic restaurants. St Ives Hideaway is just a 15-minute wander from the centre of the town; the detached, contemporary property boasts pretty decor and homely touches to offer a delightful home from home that you'll find hard to leave behind.


Similarly, a holiday in the heart of the rural countryside offers a great base for a romantic escape. Discover naturally beautiful locations, encompassing features such as rolling hills and trickling streams. Woodland walks can truly make you feel as if you are the only people in the vicinity, and oftentimes you are, as you’ll be afforded seclusion and tranquillity. With several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty available to explore in the UK, you won’t be short of unique countryside locations to explore. A stay in Yorkshire ensures a peaceful escape to enjoy both each others company, and the glorious surroundings. Winsbury Farm Cottage is delightfully secluded and surrounded by farm animals, with superb views across the rolling hills of the countryside, making it an ideal destination for a rural retreat.

Dog friendly

Some of our romantic breaks are also built with an extra member in mind, as we know that four-legged friends like to come along too. Take the stress and anxiety away from organising a kennel by booking one of our dog friendly properties, located across the whole of the UK. For an array of walks and stunning scenery to enjoy along the way, you and your canine companion will love a stay in the Brecon Beacons, where we have a range of cosy and romantic cottages to choose from, many of which are dog friendly. Rowan Cottage is a particularly beautiful hideaway, ideally placed for exploring the National Park and wonderfully unique for a memorable holiday.

Last minute

If time is of the essence, then a weekend or short break might be exactly what you need. Our holidays are available from three days for a fleeting break to a week-long stay for extended trips so you can choose the length of holiday that is best for you. No matter how long you are looking to get away for, you can plan the perfect romantic holiday with us. We have a range of cottages that have late availability, so be sure to check our last minute cottages page for deals and offers.

Hot tubs

Sometimes a touch of luxury is well-deserved, and definitely needed, which is why we have a whole array of cottages with hot tubs perfect for that indulgent break away to choose from. Scotland has breath-taking views and a culture all of its own, and the superb Rascarrel Bay lodges are in a prime position to not only enjoy the scenery, but to see it from your very own hot tub on the balcony. It's a special location with that added touch, ideal for that special occasion.

Whatever the reason, and however you would like to spend it, we can help you find the perfect romantic cottage within our collection of small cottages to rent in magnificent locations.
