Although it feels like the festive period has only just abated, the end of January is fast approaching and we can begin to feel love in the air with St Valentine’s day just around the corner.
The halfway point in February marks that special day when we shower our better halves with some thoroughly deserved tokens of our affection, so they know just how much they mean to us. Although the origins of this day of love aren’t exactly clear, it is thought that it can trace its start to the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, which is written about as early as 44BC! With such a long and tender history of celebrating the adoration of our partners and so many tokens of affection to choose from, we thought we could give you some ideas for a gift that would be worthy of a modern-day Romeo or Juliet.
Romantic Breaks on the North Cornish Coast
Now I may be biased, but, there aren’t many places I’d rather be wrapped in my partner’s arms, holed up in a cosy pub, looking out onto a beautiful beach or surrounded by luxury, than North Cornwall. If you want to get away from it all and enjoy the company of your favourite person in the world without too many distractions you can’t really get much better than Bude and the surrounding area.
A romantic break is a great option for a gift as you and your partner can always benefit from some extra quality time together. A little rest and recuperation, and some alone time to enjoy each other’s company can be just what Aphrodite ordered. At Wooda Farm, we have a great selection of accommodation for all budgets and group sizes (if you’re forced into bringing the kids!), situated on one of the prettiest stretches of coastline the UK has to offer. We have bookings available all year round in our sumptuous lodges and cosy holiday cottages perfect for a luxurious gift to properly treat your loved one, even if you can’t make it on Valentine’s day itself.
This year Valentine’s day coincides with a half-term holiday so many of you might not be able to plan your perfect present to correspond to the day of love. Thankfully, here at Wooda farm, we offer Gift Vouchers that are available from our website and come to you in a beautifully presented envelope with enough space for you to write an ode to your adored that would make Byron blush. These vouchers come in any denomination and are redeemable for 12 months after your purchase, perfect if you aren’t sure when you might have time to get away.
