    By Jane Anderson, editor, 101 Honeymoons

    A honeymoon in the UK can be a great way to keep down costs, avoid the hassle of flying and explore some of the most beautiful parts of this country. It’s also handy if you are time-poor, cash-rich. Or even if you’re time-poor, cash-poor!

    Here are my suggestions for the best honeymoon destinations and packages in the UK.

    1. Scotland

    Scotland is always a romantic destinations whether you’re enjoying the long days of summer or cosying up beside a fire in winter. Check out this 5-night self-drive luxury Scottish honeymoon where you’ll stay at a five-star hotel in Edinburgh, a lodge on the shores of Loch Ness and a private island off the coast of Argyll. It costs from £885 per person and there is an option to upgrade to a classic car such as a Mini Cooper or Austin Healey.

    2. Wales

    If you want to get away to the countryside you can’t beat these honeymoon hideaways in Wales. You’ll find great-value cottages for two, shepherd’s huts and luxury yurts in the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains, Snowdonia and the Wye Valley.

    3. Lake District

    Gilpin Lake House in the Lake District is truly stunning – a collection of six suites set in 100 acres of private grounds of a Relais & Châteaux hotel, with a lake, indoor swimming pool and a new lakefront spa.

    4. Devon

    One of my favourite seaside hotels is The Cary Arms in Babbacombe Bay, Devon. Known as The Inn on the Beach, it is a chic and sophisticated hotel owned by Peter de Savary and his wife Lana, its spacious rooms offering luxurious Italian bed linen, bespoke fabrics and stylish bathrooms. The new beach hut accommodation and oceanfront spa are great new additions. The gastropub-style food is excellent whether you are dining al fresco on the terraces or inside around a crackling fire.

    5. Cornwall

    I love Gwel an Mor on the north coast of Cornwall which is set in beautiful countryside and has luxury lodges overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Some even have private hot tubs. The hotel also boasts a spa, heated indoor swimming pool and ocean view restaurant.

    6. Rent a cottage

    If you’re looking for a budget honeymoon in the UK, you should consider self-catering. For charming cottages in the English countryside, we recommend Rural Retreats. It has romantic retreats across the country, including the seafront Barnacles in Fowey, Cornwall and the charming thatched Field Cottage in the Cotswolds. It has former lighthouse keepers’ cottages and properties for two costing around £500 to £1,000 for a week.
