Looking to go somewhere special with your loved one? While family holidays are fun and popular, it's important for couples to really get away from it all occasionally, too.

There's nothing more romantic than cosying up in a pretty, secluded cottage right here in the UK, so why not treat your other half to a holiday in one of these delightful hideaways?

Keepers Lodge, nr. Stow-on-the-Wold

This detached Cotswold stone cottage is set amongst tranquil surroundings, with the most picturesque views from every angle.

The beautifully-refurbished cottage lies within the grounds of the owner's Grade II listed home, with full use of the large, heated outdoor swimming pool.

Coxford Barn, Bude

Situated right on the Cornish coast is this idyllic retreat, with exposed beams and stunning views towards the sea.

With the charming fishing villages of Padstow and Tintagel close by, and the popular resort of Bude only nine miles away, there will be plenty of places to explore with your loved one.

Old St Luke's Church, nr. Kikby Stephen

You'll agree that it doesn't get much more romantic than staying in a converted chapel, and this one has been rebuilt sympathetically to ensure all of its original character remains.

Beautifully furnished and ideal for couples who really want to get away from it all, Old St Luke's is also ideally situated for walkers with the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks located within easy driving distance.

Roseland Cottage, Isle of Wight

Dating back to the 18th century, this chocolate-box, thatched holiday cottage is full of charm and character. The open fire is perfect for those chilly autumn evenings, and the flagstone tiles and low beams only add to the warmth.

Think hand-in-hand strolls along leafy lanes this autumn and book one of these fabulously romantic holiday cottages.
