With Valentine's Day just a day away, and everyone in the country getting into the loved-up feeling, we take a look at just why couples should take the time to go on a romantic break. Even if you haven't planned to whisk away your loved one last minute, maybe this blog will help you both realise a romantic break is what you are in need of sometime this year, and our boutique hotel, Cornwall, is the perfect destination.

It is important for couples to spend time together, reconnecting and leaving behind the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and here are six reasons why you should book a romantic getaway now:

Reduce stress and improve health

It is good for the body and mind to take some time out. Studies have proven that people who regularly take holidays or short breaks that allow them to relax have better general health, compared to those who don't. Taking care of your own and your partner's well-being by getting away from the stresses of jobs, busy social life or even the daily routine with your kids is beneficial to both of you. Regular romantic getaways not only help with reducing stress but also help with mental health and women, in particular, are likely to suffer less from depression with a short romantic getaway every so often!

Strengthens relationships

If you and your partner both lead hectic busy lives, a romantic break provides time for just each other. Spending quality time together means you are able to communicate and relax in a fun and new environment, removed from the mundane normal life. A new environment can also create a new perspective on life and the relationship and communication will often improve during and after the holiday.

Renews intimacy

This is an important one, especially if you have children. Spending time with your partner in an intimate setting, with no interruption from anyone else - such as a young, attention seeking child, is a great way to bring life back to the relationship both physically and mentally. Take time to be together in a new setting, and be romantic towards each other, and you will soon become closer and re-ignite the intimacy and passion you had at the beginning of the relationship. A romantic getaway should be what every couple needs.

Increased work performance

It might sound like an odd one, but not being in the office for a few days is a good thing (possibly why everyone celebrates the weekend so much!) It is important that all the technology and contact with work is broken during your holiday, to get the maximum benefit of your relaxing getaway. Getting a good rest with your partner refreshes you and you can return to work with renewed energy, ready to face any obstacles, making your work more productive.

Better relationships with children

Spending a lot of time with children, between school and on the weekends, can be very tiring and stressful. Taking some time out away from the kids allows the parents to slow down, relax and recover, and come back to the daily routine with the children with renewed energy and motivation. A stressed and overworked parent is not fun for you or the kids!


Once you have booked up and planned for your romantic break, the anticipation can be very exciting. A great way to get excited about the planned holiday with your partner is by researching your destination and seeing what you can do when you get there. It gives you something you and your partner can do together, leading up to the holiday and builds up excitement.
