Thankfully, there are plenty of picturesque places to pick from. We’ve collected just a few of our favourites. 

Honeymoon vs Mini-moon

When exploring honeymoon ideas in the UK, it’s also worth mentioning a mini-moon. This is a growing trend where married couples go away straight after their wedding for a few days of rest and relaxation. Whereas a honeymoon tends to be a longer trip abroad. Mini-moons are currently very popular in the UK as some couples are waiting until they have a long honeymoon abroad. However, some couples like the idea of a British-based honeymoon to keep things simple and low-key. Which would you and your partner prefer?

Lake District

If you are looking for an alternative mini-moon idea, why not try a walking holiday in the Lake District. No matter the length of your trip, the two of you are bound to have such a special time here. The Lake District, in the north of England, is a great place to go if you and your partner are craving a countryside escape. From mountains and hikes to scenic strolls and cosy cabins, the Lake District has something to offer everyone. Take your trip at your own pace and enjoy nature. 


Or perhaps the two of you are craving some time by the ocean. You may not be able to get to those tropical beaches this year, but you can get pretty close when you visit Cornwall. This South-West county manages to charm practically every visitor. With its breath-taking beaches, soft white sands, and warm weather, you’d be forgiven if you’d felt like you had gone abroad. You can walk by the ocean, watch the sunset, and experience your own little piece of paradise.


If the two of you fancy a city break, then Edinburgh might be just the spot for you. The capital of Scotland is such a captivating city.
