The wedding celebrations are all but complete and it is time to look forward to the long awaited post wedding honeymoon bliss. But if you can’t take leave longer than a few days, are cash strapped or are planning to honeymoon later in the year an international honeymoon may be out of the question. Don’t stress, we’ve found 7 amazing British honeymoon destinations that you’ll love…
1. The Boathouse
The Boathouse at Middleton Hall in Belford, is based in Northumberland – Northeast England’s amazing coastal region. It is a pebble’s throw from the beach and the perfect remote romance destination. If you’re looking to spend your days messing about on the river in the flat-bottomed boat, getting up close and personal to the resident otters before enjoying a BBQ on the deck, then this is perfect for you.

2. The Victoria Inn
Located within the grounds of Holkham Hall. Perfectly placed just a few minutes’ walk from the golden sands of Holkham Beach. But, the main reason to honeymoon here, is for the gorgeous local food – fresh fish from the Norfolk Coast, fruit from a nearby farm, lamb and pork from the estate’s tenant farmers and amazing venison.

3. Ynyshir Hotel
A glorious country-house hotel set in the tranquil Welsh countryside. It’s perfect for recharging your wedding planning batteries with some great sounds of nature and crackling open fires. Ynyshir may be secluded but it’s certainly fit for royalty – I mean, it was after all Queen Victoria’s childhood retreat. This is the perfect mini-moon for those of you who are ‘foodies’ with a Michelin star and impressive menus. See more here: http://ynyshir.co.uk/. Check out their fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor.
4. Lakeside Hotel
Is definitely the British countryside at its best – with amazing views that are simply out of this world, you’ll be left teary eyed and breathless. The Executive Lodge Suite is set away from the main house, has its own garden and is a real get-away-from-it-all option. It also has a private sauna to warm up after a day of fresh air.
