Top 5 Romantic Things to Do in Yorkshire


If you’re looking to escape on a romantic break within the UK, look no further than the beautiful county of Yorkshire. From the rich history of York city centre to the rugged outdoor beauty of the Moors, Yorkshire has everything to offer. It is a break with a difference.

Make it Romantic Dusk Til Dawn

Spend some time wandering around the cobbled streets and quirky shops of the city centre, gaze at the wonder of York Minster Abbey and enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner at one of the many fantastic restaurants based within the city walls. To truly experience the magic of York, treat that special someone to a moonlit river cruise along the Ouse, taking in the stunning architecture, beautifully lit as the sun goes down. Soak up the lively atmosphere as York comes to life with its busy social scene and maybe hop off the boat to visit your favourite bar.

Head to the Countryside with a Picnic

You could enjoy a romantic walk into some of Yorkshire’s most rugged countryside. If perhaps you don’t fancy taking on the Yorkshire Moors or fells, stay in town and head to the riverside gardens. With their immaculately tended flower beds, manicured lawns and the river as a backdrop, the gardens make the perfect spot for a romantic picnic on warmer days.

Don the Glad Rags and Bet on Your Favourite Horse

Alternatively you could put on your best clothes and spend a day at the races. Pretend to study the form while you really spend the morning people watching and enjoy a delicious lunch before you pick your winners. Sip champagne on the lawn, have a flutter on your favourite runner and soak up the excitement as you cheer your horse on to the finishing post.

Hit the Coast for Sunset

Don’t miss the unique beauty of Yorkshire’s coastline, by heading out for a day at the beach. Whether you choose a remote little fishing village or a traditional seaside resort Yorkshire has it all. Spend an afternoon feeling the white sand between your toes and playing Frisbee on the beach before taking a stroll along magnificent rocky cliffs. And as the day comes to an end, treat yourselves to some traditional fish and chips and find your favourite spot to watch the sun go down together.

Splash Out on a Spa Day

Of course, if relaxation is more your thing, treat that special someone to an indulgent spa day. Unwind with a couples’ massage, rejuvenate with an energising treatment or just simply enjoy each other’s company in the pool, sauna or Jacuzzi. And with so many fantastic Spas and wellness centres in and around York, it won’t be hard to find the perfect setting for you.

To make your stay extra special, think about finding the perfect Yorkshire base with the help of Sykes Cottages. Imagine spending the day exploring the area before heading home to a cosy cottage in the countryside. Enjoying a home cooked meal by a roaring fire, or spending a warm evening in the garden with a glass of wine. As the experts in rental cottages, Sykes can easily help find you the best romantic cottages for hire.

All you have to do is invite that special someone to join you.
