Romantic weekend getaways in Yorkshire

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, we have put together some of our favourite romantic weekend getaways in Yorkshire. Catch a steam train through the North York Moors, take a romantic stroll in the Yorkshire Dales, or sip champagne in a hot tub under the stars.

Take a look and let us know what you think!

#01 A romantic picnic for two

Romantic Yorkshire Getaways

Picnics have moved on from soggy sandwiches, crisps and cans of fizzy drinks. Pack up a picnic hamper with artisan cheeses, olives, freshly baked bread, smoked salmon and a bottle of prosecco.

Romantic spot for a picnic at Castle Howard

There’s so many scenic spots in Yorkshire to lay down a picnic blanket but our favourite spots include Rievaulx Abbey, Castle Howard and Bolton Abbey.

Where to stay: The Hay Bale for a picnic at Castle Howard

#02 Take a steam train through the North York Moors

Romantic Yorkshire Holiday

There’s something very romantic about a steam train – it’s all very Brief Encounter – and you can’t beat the scenic views of the North York Moors on an NYMR steam train. It’s like a trip back in time with traditional carriages and conductors in period uniforms.  You can travel from Pickering to Whitby or the other way around!

#03 Spot stars in the dark night sky

The lack of light pollution in the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales make them ideal for stargazing. Grab a blanket and snuggle up outside while you look up into the beautiful night sky – it really is mesmerising.

#04 A romantic walk in the Yorkshire countryside

Romantic weekend getaways to Yorkshire

Yorkshire was just made for romantic strolls with two National Parks (in the form of the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors) and a dramatic coastline that’s peppered with traditional fishing villages.

You'll get great views walking up Roseberry Topping

Some of our favourites include a walk up Roseberry Topping which has gorgeous views from the top and Malham Cove / Gordale Scar which was number 3 on ITV’s Britain’s Favourite Walks.

Where to stay: River View at Great Ayton for Roseberry Topping

#05 Sip champagne in a hot tub

Relax with a glass of bubbly in the hot tub.

There’s something particularly indulgent about relaxing in a hot tub – especially with a glass of champagne in your hand! I particularly love a hot tub with a view – you can just feel stresses melting away as you sink into the bubbles. Take a look at our Yorkshire holiday cottages with a hot tub.

The star of the show, a fabulous hot tub which has uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside.

Where to stay: The Pump House in Ilkley

Gorgeous Cottages have a range of holiday cottages that are perfect for romantic weekend getaways to Yorkshire. Whether for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or just a little break in the country, take a look at these romantic Yorkshire cottages.
