It’s no secret - wedding planning is hard work. After months, or sometimes years, of careful planning and preparation, it can feel like your dream day is all over in the blink of an eye. So, in our experience, it pays to have something exciting to look forward to after your wedding day.
Whether that’s opening up all the gorgeous gifts you added to your wedding gift list or heading off together on a lavish, romantic honeymoon... Well, we have good news on both fronts - we’ve recently partnered with Airbnb UK so you can now add Airbnb vouchers to your gift list!
Amounts range from £25 up to £500, so there are gifting options to fit every budget. And you can use them on your honeymoon, minimoon or even to plan a romantic minibreak to mark your first wedding anniversary!
To celebrate this new partnership, we’ve put together a list of our top 10 most romantic places to stay on Airbnb UK… just to give you a few ideas.
What is Airbnb and how does it work?
Airbnb is a property-sharing platform. It’s designed to connect travellers looking for unique and unusual places to stay – UK or abroad – with property owners who have spaces to spare. The whole booking process and all payments are handled online by Airbnb, so you know it’s simple, safe and secure. And the best part is, these cool, quirky stays come with expert local hosts who can point you in the direction of all the best places to visit, eat and drink during your stay.
So, what are you waiting for? ... Let’s get planning!
Romantic Airbnb UK: Southeast England
Secluded Treehouse Retreat

Ever fancied spending the night 20ft up in the trees? How about having your own private treehouse for the night? When it comes to unique places to stay in the UK, this one is way UP there (if you’ll pardon the pun)! Nestling between three ancient oak trees & looking out over uninterrupted countryside views across the North Downs – a designated area of outstanding natural beauty – this Airbnb treehouse in the UK is a real hidden gem.

And while we’re on the subject of quirky places to stay in England, how about a luxury pigsty? … No, really! This unusual Airbnb in Hampshire offers a cosy woodland hideaway with stunning views across a working farm.

Romantic Airbnb UK: Southwest England
The Crow’s Nest
Where: Millbrook, Cornwall

We can’t talk about Airbnb UK breaks without mentioning at least one seaside retreat. And this outstanding Airbnb Cornwall has to offer is the ideal example. Imagine waking up in a super king-size bed and looking out across a stunning ocean panorama as you drink your morning coffee… sounds nice? What if there was also a freestanding cast iron bathtub AND your own private sauna complete with a sea view?... run, don’t walk.
Where: Dittisham, Devon
Price per night: £294
If you’ve ever wanted to escape to the country – Devon in particular - then this could be the place for you! A stunning, self-contained holiday home for two, complete with rolling hills, a cosy wood burner, a vintage record player and a private outdoor cuddle chair overlooking a beautiful babbling brook… this is about as charming as it gets!
You also get access to a shared pool, sauna, games room and grass tennis court. And to top it all off, it’s a dog-friendly Airbnb, so your four-legged friend can enjoy the holiday & excellent local dog walks with you!
Romantic Airbnb UK: Wales
Seren Bach Dome

A luxury, dog-friendly geo-dome complete with log burner, private hot tub and 5m panoramic view across the mountain landscape - unusual weekend breaks in the uk don’t come much more fabulous than this!
Oh, and did we mention, this area holds dark sky reserve status, so you will have a spectacular view of the stars as you sip your bubbly in the hot tub or lounge in bed (yes – you read that right - there’s a cheeky ceiling window)!
Mountain Top Traditional Gypsy Caravan
Where: Machynlleth, Powys
Price per night: £90
Speaking of quirky accommodation, how about staying in your own private gypsy caravan? Parked up in the peaceful Welsh countryside, this gorgeous caravan has been lovingly constructed and renovated on an original 1920s frame.

The Airbnb hosts here really know what they’re doing when it comes to romantic minibreaks – you’ll arrive to a nice bottle & a box of chocolates along with a king-size bed strewn with rose petals… utterly dreamy!
The Mallard At Baywood Cabins
Where: North Yorkshire
