UK Luxury Honeymoon & anniversary Ideas - Countryside City Centre Retreats

We know London is great fun and the Cotswolds is beautiful, but we wanted to give you something a little out of the ordinary. Some hidden gems, new luxury finds and places that make you say wow!

We’ve wrote up a mix from city retreats and country escapes, so there’s something therefore every couple.


The Vatten Hus – canal boat

A brand-new floating penthouse situated in the heart of Manchester. This luxury canal boat has only just launched and looks incredible! It’s hard to believe this beautiful design is on a boat AND can be found city centre! - Who would have thought!


The final product is nothing short of incredible, the cabin is a modern design, the most exquisite floral displays that adorn the boat and create the most impressive entrance. It's perfect for a city getaway, you hire the boat exclusively to yourself!

The Vatten Hus not only is beautiful but spacious too, king size bedrooms, a large open plan kitchen dining that leads to exclusive outdoor seating on the deck, for summer nights under the city lights.



For those who haven’t visit Manchester before it’s the capital of the North and for all the right reasons. The city is steeped in culture, things to do, places to see. Home to lots of beautiful historic architecture, amazing nightlife and incredible restaurants, such as Tattu and The Ivory.


As their team say everything is right on your boat doorstep.. We love it.

Fonab Castle Hotel & spa

Stay within a castle!

Of course suitable anytime of year, but we must say if you’re having a winter wedding followed by a winter moon? Pitlochry is just breathtakingly beautiful in Autumn! Having visited Pitlochry in the colder seasons we can confirm this is the hidden gem of Scotland, the colours of the countryside are spectacular a must for the bucket list.


Fonab Castle is magical, we’re picturing spa treatments and fine dining followed by cosy evenings in by the fire, hot chocolates, winter walks in the countryside.
