We can’t get overly how beautifully this four-storey windmill has been decorated – the luxurious king-size bed, double-ended bath in the walk-in wet room and large rustic kitchen make it ideal for a unique getaway with your new hubby!

York Place in Edinburgh
If you’re looking for a romantic city break rather than a cottage in the middle of nowhere, then what better choice than elegant Edinburgh? This incredible Georgian apartment gives you the perfect base to explore the city from – but it’s so comfortable that you might spending all your time in bed anyway!
This newly-renovated flat has all the mod cons as well as period charm – just check out the huge kitchen diner, spa-like wet room and airy living room with flat screen TV. Set in the heart of New Town, everything you need for a city break is just a stone’s throw away, including the famous castle.

Beach House in Cornwall
If you’re bringing the kids along for your family minimoon, then you’ll need a two-bed Air BnB. We think this fabulous beach house more than fits the bill, and it sits right on the beachfront in stunning St Austell, Cornwall. In fact, it’s so well designed, that it’s been featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces!
As well as its breathtaking sea views, this property also boasts a hot tub (perfect for sitting in with a glass of bubbly while the sun goes down), a log burner for the cooler nights, and a huge master bedroom with glam Heritage bathtub. There’s no need for a car to get around either, as within 5 minutes’ walking distance you’ll find shops, restaurants, bars, pubs, ice cream shops, antiques shops, craft shops and the port.

Crows Hermitage in Dublin
For a romantic Irish minimoon, check out this amazing converted stone barn in Garristown, Dublin. Set in the quiet village of Ardcath, Crows Hermitage is a great base to explore Dublin and the East Coast of Ireland from. The Boyne Valley, Newgrange heritage site and the Hill of Tara are within 20 minutes drive, as are the beaches of Bettystown and Gormanston – or you can just head to the village pub, which is three minutes walk away.
We can totally understand why you wouldn’t want to leave this cozy barn in the first place – since its conversion in 2008, it’s seen plenty of honeymooning couples thanks to its rustic yet romantic feel. It would make a great Winter break too, thanks to the wood burner and plenty of snuggly blankets.

Farm Apartment in Bath
For the perfect medium between country retreat and city break, this quirky yet cool apartment in Corsham near Bath is ideal! It’s set within quiet country farmland, but is only a short drive from the beautiful city of Bath, which is well worth a visit for its relaxing rooftop spa, elegant historic buildings and excellent restaurants.
The apartment itself has a fabulous Scandi-cool feel to it, and is light and airy while still retaining the coziness of an English farmhouse. There’s even a quaint farm shop on the premises so you can stock up on homegrown goodies, and relax in front of the log burner with a homecooked meal. Bliss.
