If you’re planning your honeymoon but don’t have the time, or possibly the budget, for two weeks holiday in a far-flung location, you might want to consider a mini moon.
A mini moon can be every bit as glamorous and luxurious as a longer honeymoon, it is just a question of making sure you get the location right. With a much shorter time away from home, you don’t want to spend more than a day travelling. Your goal is simple – find a super gorgeous place to stay and check-in quickly to enjoy a few days of fun and relaxation.
Mini Moons with Classic British Hotels
At Classic British Hotels you can experience some of the finest 3 and 4 star independent hotels in the UK. Each hotel has its own distinct character, style and local flavour. Their hotels offer superior quality accommodation, award-winning restaurants, spa experiences, health clubs and championship golf courses. Each member of the hotel team at every Classic British hotel is naturally hospitable and genuinely looks forward to welcoming you as a guest.
Here you’ll find 3 of my favourite potential mini moon destinations from Classic British Hotels… I’ve chosen them because they look and sound amazing, and are all situated in beautiful locations! I might need to make a visit soon!
Wyck Hill is a honey-hued 18th Century manor house hotel set in a 50-acre estate with breathtaking views across Windrush Valley. Located in the heart of the Cotswolds, just outside Stow-on-the-Wold, it is ideally placed for exploring the surrounding chocolate-box villages and market towns, such as Bourton-on-the-Water and Moreton-in-Marsh.
The hotel features award-winning dining in a glorious light-filled conservatory, where you can savour fine food and country views, and a cosy library and bar, with a traditional open fire and oak panelled walls.
The spa offers a full Elemis therapy menu, steam room and sauna to help you unwind. Or, sipping champagne, watch the sun go down from your very own private patio in the Mediterranean-style Orangery annex.
Lindeth Howe’s magical hillside setting, surrounded by six acres of mature gardens – gently sloping lawns with pockets of woodland – and commanding stunning views of Lake Windermere to the Cumbrian fells beyond, was a source of inspiration to its previous owner, beloved children’s author, Beatrix Potter. Today, Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel is one of the highest rated 4-star hotels in the Lake District.
The fine dining restaurant at Lindeth Howe enjoys an enviable reputation for delicious food and attentive service and has previously been crowned ‘Lake District Restaurant of the Year’ by Lake District & Lancashire Life Magazine.
In additional to an indoor pool, a sauna, a fitness room and health and beauty treatments, local sightseeing tours of the Lake District, golf, fishing, lake cruises, water sports, horse riding, mountain bike hire and guided walks can all be arranged for you. The honeypot village of Bowness-on-Windermere is within easy walking distance.
Dartington Hall Hotel
Dartington Hall Hotel is on the Dartington Estate – a truly inspiring retreat, set in 1,200 acres of rolling farmland and deer park with Bronze Age walls near the ancient market town of Totnes, in South Devon.
Dartington Hall Hotel offers a wealth of things to do, with walks along the River Dart; 25 acres of Grade II* listed gardens to explore; craft, gift, fashion, food and beauty shops; a cinema in a 14th century barn; and the Haven Spa, with divine Elemis and Spa Find treatments.
The hotel bedrooms are arranged around a magnificent medieval courtyard – two of Henry VIII’s wives called it home for a short spell – and its White Hart pub serves mouth-watering meals, prepared from fresh local produce.
The Dartington Estate hosts over 1,000 events each year including exhibitions, arts festivals, food fairs, opera, films, plus events focussed on wellbeing, happiness and society. Dartington Hall is committed to supporting the arts and positively contributing to society and our planet.
Wherever you decide to go for your mini moon, have a wonderful time!
