With all the hard work you both do, you deserve a breakaway – a retreat to unwind, breathe deeply, and recharge your batteries. Enjoying time off with your partner is a lovely way to reconnect and spend time in each other’s company. If your partner’s birthday is coming up, or an anniversary, or if you just want to treat your loved one to a beautiful weekend away, then this guide has got you covered. 

Stay tuned in order to execute the perfect time away that you’ll both remember for years to come, and one that’ll remind you just how special their company is.

 Setting The Scene 

Begin browsing online to get an idea of what speaks to you, and which places and destinations look most captivating and attractive. They should be wonderful settings, so think about a calming beach, or rolling and open landscapes, as well as a cottage in the countryside with a roaring log fire, for example. Set the scene, and be as romantic as possible. After all, this is a special weekend away with your other half, so be prepared to indulge yourselves and seek out a slice of luxury. Amberley House Cottage Holidays in rural Sussex offer rustic living, picturesque views of The South Downs, and cosy living that could see the two of you set the scene with walking, hiking, pub lunches, and sunsets overlooking this expansive and undulating part of the country. 



 Think Ahead 

Don’t be complacent and believe that everything will fall into place. Avoid disappointment by booking restaurants in advance, calling ahead to make reservations, and browsing the internet to create a well-planned itinerary so that you’re able to make the most of every second away. Be sure to book transport, accommodation, and activities well in advance. 



 Lose The Technology 

Before getting away, make a concentrated effort to complete any outstanding work you have lingering in your inbox, and make any necessary important business calls. Having to spend time on your phone or laptop while you’re supposed to be having a relaxed weekend away doesn’t exactly communicate passion and romance to your partner.

You should be able to leave your phone at home, and be free of worry so that you can enjoy each other’s company and having fun together. It’s crucial to take time out of your busy lives, redirect your emails to someone else in the office, and turn your phone off. Give it a go -you’ll feel refreshed and enlivened for doing so.



 Surprise Them 

Ensuring they like surprises, keep the weekend plan a secret. Tell them that you’d like to do something that weekend so that they don’t make other plans, but then tell them how you’ve planned a trip away with them on the day after breakfast in bed, for example. If it’s their birthday, then they might have some idea that you’ve got something planned, but they needn’t know the exact itinerary until just before you leave. You could tell them how to pack for the weather, and if you’re thinking of travelling to something rural you might just need to take your wellies, a waterproof jacket, and an umbrella.
