The Best Places to Pop the Question in the UK!


Are you planning a proposal? There’s no need to blow your budget on a trip abroad when we have so many beautiful & romantic destinations right here in the UK! Forget the clichés of Paris or Rome & pop the question during a romantic staycation that you’ll both remember forever. Here are a few of our top destinations:

The Lake District

England’s largest National Park attracts millions of tourists every year, for a whole variety of reasons. Of course, there are the lakes, but you’ll also find majestic mountains & even a sandy coastline. If you’re the kind of couple who likes to get your adrenaline pumping then you’ll be in heaven here, with everything from wakeboarding to mountain biking available. If you’d prefer to just chill out, why not take a cruise and admire the scenery while you sit back and relax? Whether you do it at the top of Scafell Pike, in the middle of Lake Windermere or on the balcony of your hotel room, the Lake District can certainly provide a suitably breathtaking backdrop for your proposal.

Beaumont House, Windermere, Cumbria
  
Pembrokeshire

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path spans 186 miles of varied coastal scenery. There are rugged clifftops & hidden coves to discover, and award-winning golden beaches to relax on. There are over 200 circular walks you can set out on, so plan a route, pack a picnic & pop the question with a stunning coastal backdrop! If the weather isn’t on your side, then there are plenty of days out which are suitably romantic! Pembrokeshire has many majestic castles & ancient sites, each with their own rich history. If you get caught in the rain it’s not the end of the world, enjoy a ‘cwtch’ by the fire & you’ll have warmed up in no time!

The Scottish Highlands

With a reputation across the world for their mystery & romance, the Scottish Highlands are somehow even more magnificent in person! The striking, rugged landscape brings with it a vast array of wildlife. Now you may not spot the Loch Ness monster, but if you’re lucky you could see anything from Scottish wildcats & red deer to grey seals or bottlenose dolphins! For animal lovers, there is surely nothing better than seeing animals in their natural habitat & it’s something you’ll never forget. When the sun sets, you may be surprised at how much there still is to see! Scotland has some of Europe’s largest areas of Dark Skies, so on a clear night you could get down on one knee with distant planets, galaxies & even shooting stars as company.

Breakfasts Around the UK & Ireland


Breakfasts Around the UK & Ireland

 
““When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh.”
(Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne)

We all know that breakfast is allegedly the most important meal of the day, but how many of us are guilty of either grabbing something on the go, or skipping it altogether? It’s a different matter on holiday, when after a lie in you can start your day with a veritable feast! Take the opportunity to dine like a local, and tuck into different regional breakfasts when you travel.


While some prefer to start their day with a lighter option, for others you just can’t beat a fry up! The full English may be the best known, but across the UK & Ireland a cooked breakfast will vary in its ingredients. Of course, there are always other options available & local specialities to start your day in a healthier way.

Thornhill Hotel, Teignmouth, Devon

A traditional Full Irish breakfast or Ulster Fry will usually feature both black & white pudding, which despite the misleading name are definitely not a type of dessert! A slice or two of soda bread for ‘sopping up’ is very popular. Potatoes are a must, traditionally the leftovers from the previous night’s dinner, made into a hash or bubble & squeak, or even a potato farl.

Bridge View B&B, Kilkenny City, Co Kilkenny

Scottish breakfasts are just not complete without lorne or ‘square sausage’ and a potato scone or two! Haggis & black pudding are often found as well, although not to everyone’s taste. Fish is a popular breakfast choice, with kippers or Arbroath Smokies (smoked haddock) sprinkled with salt & pepper. For some, you just can’t beat a bowl of porridge – but true Scottish porridge will always be served with salt, not sugar!

Trigony House Hotel, Thornhill, Dumfries & Galloway

The Welsh breakfast is probably the closest to a full English, but with a few key differences. Welsh cockles and laverbread (a seaweed purée mixed with oatmeal and fried) are very popular, as is smoked sea trout. The crucial thing about a Welsh breakfast is the use of local ingredients, and often washed down with a cup of Welsh tea.

Llangoed Hall, Llyswen, Wye Valley, Powys

As cooked breakfasts have grown in popularity, you’ll often find they’re served throughout the day. So don’t worry if your bed was just too comfortable to get out of in time, just grab one for lunch (or even dinner) instead!

Hotels Available offers a wide range of hotels and guest accommodation in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland & Ireland. Whether you are looking for an overnight stop for your business trip or you are looking to have a short break for the weekend we are the accommodation website to find it on.
