Romantic Winter Breaks
There is nothing nicer or more festive than cosying up in front of the fire on a wintry weekend getaway, whether in the UK or abroad. A lovely log cabin in a secluded forest is where we would love to spend our Christmas! In the Shoetique.co.uk office we’ve picked the romantic breaks that we’re fantasising about this season!
Finland offers the best of both worlds for a romantic getaway. Enjoy authentic log cabins and blazing fires, or explore the great outdoors with some snow activities! Nothing is more romantic than watching the Northern Lights with your loved one before heading back to your cosy cabin.
For a spectacular view, why not try the Glass Igloos at Hotel Kakslauttanen? These stunning igloos feature 360 degree views of the sky, and are constructed from a highly thermal glass which keeps the inside toasty and prevents the glass from steaming up for a perfect view!
City Break – Bruges, Belgium
Bruges offers all of the opportunities to create romance, with chocolate galore and gorgeous scenic buildings and canal ways for providing the perfect backdrop for your getaway. At night, the streets are floodlit for a romantic glow. Why not treat your loved one to a fabulous meal at the Park Restaurant, the best restaurant in Bruges (according to Trip Advisor).
Something a little different – Cloughton Railway Station, North Yorkshire
If your significant other’s passion is trainspotting, this could be the perfect surprise for Christmas! ‘Oscar’ is a railway carriage, built in 1962 and now permanently stationed at the old Cloughton Railway Station. You can hire out Oscar for the night, for a unique break you’ll never forget! Oscar is set in a secluded location and is a perfect spot for exploring the North East countryside.
