With Christmas behind us, push through any January blues and look forward to a relaxing break away with your loved one this Valentines day. Love is all around us and what better way to celebrate than with some quality time together enjoying fresh sea air and new experiences. If you are stuck for what to do on valentines day, we have a selection of cottages available for short breaks in Devon this February, from our romantic ‘just for two’ cottages to hidden gems in the countryside. Whilst we would love to welcome everyone this Valentines, we understand some may be looking for valentines day ideas at home, either way we hope our suggestions provide some romantic date ideas.
Get Amongst Nature
Enjoy the healing powers of nature, wrap up warm and get outdoors whether that is on a bike ride, walk or cold-water swim. We have an amazing selection of walks on our doorstep here in East Devon, weather that’s enjoying the UNESCO world heritage site of the Jurassic Coast from the South West Coast Path, or looking out for signs of spring and new life along the East Devon Way. Why not pack a flask & packed lunch and dine al-fresco in the great outdoors?
Enjoy a Spa Treatment
Nothing says romantic like a couple’s spa trip, indulge in a well-deserved massage or sauna session at a local spa. We are lucky in Devon with many lovely hotels opening up their spa’s for private bookings, the Sidmouth Harbour Hotel, Aspara & Devoncourt hotel in Exmouth are well worth a visit.
Feast at a Romantic Dinner
Special dinners are a key component of any romantic break, whether that is cooking from the comfort of your own holiday home or treating yourselves to a meal out. We have an amazing selection of restaurants in East Devon, many of which specialise in fresh local produce. We’ve listed some of our favourites below, however our friendly team are always on hand with more recommendations:
