Thanks to two years of uncertainty about travelling abroad, there has been a sharp rise in popularity for the humble staycation and holidaying in the UK has become the top choice for many Brits, whether it’s families, couples, or groups.

Fortunately, the UK offers much to see and do on these small islands, from its sleek cities to its lush rolling countryside and majestic coastline, as well as a profusion of quintessentially British five-star hotels, making it the ideal destination for a lavish ‘mini-moon’.

If you are looking for somewhere close to home to splash out, post-nuptials, check out some of our top picks below to inspire you when researching and booking your luxury honeymoon in the UK.

Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa, Hampshire

One of the dreamiest regions of England, Hampshire edges both the beautiful south coast and the enchanting New Forest, and undoubtedly makes the most of its enviable location.

Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa is an award-winning country house hotel that offers couples peace, tranquillity, and utterly luxurious accommodation with a range of excellent things to see and do, on and off-site.

The cosy and highly romantic Treehouse Hideaway Suites offer more privacy than rooms and suites elsewhere in the hotel. Built on stilts in the canopy high above the grounds, they feature outdoor hot tubs, wood-burning stoves, and floor-to-ceiling windows, plus a daily breakfast hamper delivered to your door.

When it comes to culinary art, the hotel focuses primarily on locally sourced, fresh produce and ingredients, of which most is found in their delightful Kitchen Garden. Check out the James Martin-created cookery classes, which are a fun and different way to experience and enjoy food together too!

Love is in the…

  • Magical sunsets from your secluded Treehouse Hideaway Suite
  • Private couples’ spa treatments 
  • Bespoke cookery courses with skilled guest chefs

Babington House, Somerset

This gorgeous Grade II-listed manor house is considered one of the UK's finest luxury hotels. Part of the exclusive Soho House group, rooms at Babington House are luckily available to book for non-members too.

Situated within 18 acres of stunning Somerset countryside, the hotel is only 30 minutes’ drive from the historic city of Bath – a long-time favourite for romantic getaways.

Babington House affords plenty of beautiful comfy spaces for honeymooning couples to relax and unwind such as The Library and The Study, cosy rooms with open fires to watch TV, read books or enjoy afternoon tea together.

Guests can also wander the vast estate and partake in lots of outdoor activities like tennis, cricket, croquet and bicycle rides, or simply walk together and absorb the surrounding beauty of the English countryside.

The Orangery restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner and acquires most of its produce from the Walled Garden, while the Bar provides a cosy, intimate spot for a daytime cocktail or a nightcap.

Soho Health Club offers guests a gym, saunas, and steam rooms, and Cowshed is the hotel’s gorgeous spa for unwinding and enjoying some relaxing couples’ time. 

Love is in the…

  • Adult-only rooms and suites with freestanding rolltop baths and king-size beds
  • Tranquil indoor and outdoor heated pools
  • Outdoor Bar Terrace where you can lay down a rug and dine together in a picnic-style setting, but with the added bonus of being waited on
