The Snug

The Snug

So after a busy summer and kids are back to school I decided I wanted to surprise my partner with something special, something for just the two of us, quality time, peace from the kids, something romantic, something spontaneous. A weekend away would be perfect, and so the mad hunt on the internet began……. I started looking for trains, hotels and restaurants, it soon became rather overwhelming.

Hang on a second this is going to cost me a small fortune! So that’s when I decided to think out of the box, think local, what’s close by so we don’t have to travel too far, think romantic, think within budget, what could be special, maybe quirky, what would Fiona never think of, what could be a one off and let’s face it when are we going to get the chance again.

Then I found scrolling through Lakes Cottage Holidays website the perfect and unusual romantic getaway “The Snug”. Wow I thought to myself when is it you would get the chance at staying here, a quirky, extremely romantic shepherds hut, and it’s only 10 miles away!!

Feeling rather please with myself I booked straightaway.

We booked for two nights. I didn’t tell Fiona until the Friday night and we were staying at the snug Saturday and Sunday evening. I picked Fiona up from work Saturday afternoon and We only had to travel a few miles and literally just took one bag between us, oh and made a quick stop at the Marks and Spencer’s foods at Kingstown just off the M6 and bought a few treats and essential.

We can’t believe this place is literally on our doorstep. And I can honestly say we really did feel hundreds of miles away.

Upon arrival we were so excited and like two big kids we raced to get in the hot tub.

When night time drew in we lit the fire in the shepherds hut, it really felt like a little adventure. I know it sounds cheesy but we actually gazed up at the stars, talked nonsense, made plans, laughed and above all we made special memories.

We’ve stayed all over the world admittedly normally hotels or apartments but this place will take some beating. Total tranquillity, peace and just nice to have us time.

Romantic is an understatement. The hot tub is the cherry on the cake. Will definitely be staying again at this romantic hideaway close to our doorstep.
