7 Of The Best Reasons To Honeymoon At Home

Have you thought about staying in the UK for your honeymoon?

7 of the best reasons to honeymoon at home

When we think of a honeymoon, we picture sandy beaches, blue skies, and far-flung destinations. But what about having your honeymoon in the UK? These are seven reasons why honeymooning at home could be the best decision you ever make.

1. Be a tourist in your own country

When you live in a place for a long time, you fail to recognise the beauty of it. You see the same parts, but you never explore anywhere new. If you go on a honeymoon in your own country, you can treat the trip like you’re a tourist and admire all the famous landmarks others are queuing up to admire.

2. Bring your dog!

If you and your fiancé have a beloved pooch you’re worried about leaving behind, bring them with you! If you’re travelling by car, you can bring your doggie along and turn it into a trip for the whole family. There are plenty of places to choose from.

3. Save money

You could save yourself a fortune by deciding not to go abroad. Plus, the money that you would’ve spent on your honeymoon, you could now spend on your honeymoon in the UK or even for something extra towards your wedding. Discover how to prioritise your wedding cost here.

4. The coast is beautiful

If you choose to honeymoon somewhere along the coast like St Ives, you’ll be in for a treat. There are beautiful beaches, soft sand and stunning views. In pictures, people might think you’re abroad after all!

5. Explore the big cities

You could turn two mini trips into one by visiting the coast and then checking out the hustle and bustle of a big city. From London to Liverpool and Nottingham to Cardiff, there are so many places for you to explore.

6. Embrace the open road

One of the best bits about staying in the UK is you can utilise your own transport and turn your honeymoon into a road trip. This means you don’t have to stay in one place and makes things a bit more exciting!

7. Try something new

A lot of people go abroad for new experiences, but there are plenty of things you can try out right here in the UK. From white water rafting in Snowdonia, surfing in Cornwall and even dolphin watching in Inverness, definitely make it a part of your trip.


And if you’re thinking about having a minimoon, we’ve found the perfect places to escape to right after the big day here in the UK.



If you love the countryside, The Treehouse at Harptree Court in Somerset will be ideal. You’ll enjoy your own private treetop retreat, that comes with a cosy log burner and wrap-around stargazing deck.


Who said Scotland couldn’t be romantic? Stobo Castle Health Spa stands along the Scottish Borders and it’s pretty perfect in every way. From a four-poster bed to three course dinners and an amazing spa, you won’t want to miss this.


A luxury boutique hotel situated on a bay, with a seaside spa and gastro menu – how does that sound? What about staying in a gorgeous beach hut? Cary Arms & Spa has all of this and more.


The Shangri-La Hotel At The Shard is one of the most sought-after spots in the capital. It has unbeatable views and is in an iconic location. You can enjoy the best of London’s landmarks and your own personal butler keeps your Champagne flute filled.


The Crazy Bear Beaconsfield is not your average hotel. It’s actually a 15th-century coaching inn, where a charming exterior leads into a wonderful collection of luxurious and eclectic interiors.
