10 Fabulous Ideas For A Perfect Valentine’s Trip

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we’re sure the more organised of you have bought that heart shaped chocolate box (if not, please note that Prestat’s chocolates are a fail-safe token of your everlasting love!) and booked a fabulous restaurant for the evening, while the forgetful ones are hurriedly shopping online for anything that arrives just in time. And the rest of us are pretending we don’t care at all that it’s valentine’s Day – oh, it’s the 14th already is it, what a pointless day, who wants to be showered with gifts of flowers and chocolates anyway…

If you are wanting to celebrate Valentine’s Day a little differently this year, then look no further! We have complied a list of fun, romantic, scenic and quirky suggestions and the best part, they are all in Britain.  Don’t worry if you are single this Valentine’s, these places are also great to visit with friends and family.

  1. Gir Lion Lodge at ZSL London Zoo 

London Zoo are hosting 3 special Valentine’s evenings at Gir Lion Lodge, metres away from the majestic Asiation lions, this February. What could be more romantic than a sunset tour of London Zoo, sprinkled in fairy lights, followed by a romantic two course dinner and a night’s stay in one of their luxury lodges.

 

  1. Ackergill Tower Hotel, Scotland

An award winning, 5 star luxury hotel, it’s one of the finest  castle hotels in Scotland. With a 3000 acre estate, breath-taking scenery, a private, unspoilt beach and a range of activities available, the only downside will be having to leave at the end of your stay.

 

  1. The Crystal Maze Challenge – London and Manchester

An absolutely hilarious date for couples looking for something away from the norm. Embark on a maze adventure, using all your abilities physically and mentally to work your way to the end. As part of a team you have to collect as many crystals as possible in order to win time for the one final challenge and beat the Maze.

 

  1. The Chocolate Boutique Hotel, Bournemouth

A chocolate themed hotel – need we say more? Chocolate cocktails, chocolate hampers, chocolate workshops, chocolate fountains, chocolate wine. Enough said.

 

  1. Murder Mystery Break – multiple locations across the UK

Another amazing idea for a fun weekend. Why not dress up for the night and embark on a ‘real life’ murder mystery adventure and crack the clues to reveal the killer. These are hosted all over the UK and most include a 3 course dinner and an overnight stay as well as the exciting murder mystery entertainment.

 

  1. Hot air balloon flight, multiple locations across the UK

Floating through the clouds, 5000 feet over stunning views, sipping on champagne and feasting on chocolates, you’ll struggle to find a more magical experience.

 

  1. Double decker bus in Ceridwen, West Wales

If you fancy a change from the standard hotel stay, then experience a night in a renovated double decker bus overlooking the Welsh valley. Complete with a kitchen, living room and 2 double bedrooms – it’s an amazing, genius use of space.

 

  1. The Dell, Whitsand Bay, Cornwall

An absolutely stunning setting to spend a romantic weekend away in this beautiful retreat just for two. Situated on top of Tregonhawke Cliff in South Cornwall, with 4 miles of sandy beach and dramatic coastline, the surrounding views are perfectly picturesque. An ideal location for lovers of long walks and striking scenery, this is a perfect spot to relax and unwind.

 

  1. G&V Royal Mile Edinburgh

Discover the vibrant, romantic, charming city of Edinburgh whist staying in one of Scotland’s most exclusive hotels, situated in the most perfect, central location on the Royal Mile. Enjoy Michelin star restaurants, Scottish history, cocktail bars, the Old Town, the New Town, inns, culture, landmarks, heritage sites and incredible scenery.

 

  1. The Woodsman’s Treehouse, West Dorset

An incredible example of sustainable craftsmanship and luxury. This beautiful treehouse sits high up in the branches of a veteran oak. It is completely unique, with a window in the floor, looking down to the stream below and a window above the bed, opening to the view above. This paradise is complete with a sauna, hot tub, open air tree-shower and wood fired pizza oven. Surrounded by beauty and tranquillity, this surely is the ultimate retreat.

I can only comment on the service and delivery ( which were both very good ). I have purchased this beautifully boxed hamper as a gift for christmas, so I'm hoping that the contents are as good as the above mentioned. Well packaged and arrived on my suggested date. Thank you.

First time I have used this company. I chose my hamper from their web site but rang to place the order. The firm's operator was extremely helpful, even ringing me back when the phone cut off. The hamper was delivered as it said the next day. As it was a thank you gift I didn't see the hamper but the recipients were delighted with its presentation and contents. I would most certainly recommend this company and would be more than happy to use their services again. Excellent.

I particularly liked the Gluten Free Offering, which seems to be an increasing trend, although in our case and absolute medical requirement - not a lifestyle choice. So, thank you for providing this and the products offered were very appreciated and new to my wife.

My friends were absolutely thrilled when their hamper arrived and described it as "a huge box with classy wrapping and a beautiful navy blue bow, filled with lovely treats." "Exquisite in every way","so professional" and "perfect" were just some of their additional comments. I really want to thank you so much Sam for all your help and suggestions - you made arranging their hamper so easy and a very pleasant experience for me as well - one that I intend to repeat! 5 Stars Plus.

What a wonderful company to deal with. I found the website very easy to use and then put in a telephone order in which I was dealt with in a helpful and polite way by the lady on the phone. The hamper arrived the next day and was very well received. 10/10

After a failed order from Betty's Tea Room to ship to Singapore, I found The British Hamper Company and ordered a hamper for my brother. It arrived 2.5 days later (I ordered it on a Monday afternoon and it was received in Singapore before 11:00 loccal time on Thursday). And best of all, the prices shown included delivery, so there were no nasty surprises when going to the checkout. Very good service and my brother was very happy with his present. Will be using these guys again for orders to international family ( Singapore, Australia, US).

Great service - good value products and quick delivery. The only downside was communications from customer service were lacking as I didn't know when a hamper had been despatched or delivered (although I was given a way to track this with the courier company themselves)

Hamper was ordered for some friends in the United States. I was a bit sceptical about the stated delivery time.....as it looked really quick! The hamper was indeed delivered on the exact date specified and our friends were delighted with the quality of the contents :) Mike T (United Kingdom)

My sister loved the hamper I sent her. I was disappointed though that it did not contain the flapjack biscuits as they are divine. A second fruit cake had been substituted so no loss of items in the contents Thank you

Excellent service. So fast and efficient, my relatives in Canada were delighted with the contents of their hamper and thrilled with the surprise. The tracking service was fascinating to follow, I could picture my hamper as it travelled through all the checkpoints and it arrived 2 days before it's predicted delivery date. Will definitely use this company again.

It is a pity the rating only goes up to 5 stars, the service from the British Hamper Company is worthy of much more. From my first order all the way through to the delivery in Japan, everything was first class. I will be ordering a Christmas hamper soon. Highly recommended, thank you. Mr E. Green.
