Top 10 rural UK locations for your honeymoon or minimoon

Congratulations! You’ve put a ring on it, the wedding is planned and now it’s time to start thinking about your honeymoon, or minimoon; a post-wedding short break immediately after your big day. In recent years, we’ve seen a huge rise in couples looking to honeymoon or minimoon in the UK, and we can understand why.

Here at Farm Stay, we specialise in rural getaways; whether it’s a cosy B&B, a self-catering cottage or a luxury glamping site – we’ve got it covered! So with that in mind, here are our top 10 locations for your farm based honeymoon or minimoon.

East Trenean Farm, Cornwall

East Trenean Farm is a peaceful South Cornish getaway, where relaxation is guaranteed. The farm is set in 10 acres of beautiful countryside, overlooking ancient woodland and the sea. For your romantic stay, we recommend Linhay, sleeping 2 in a cosy retreat with a private hot tub, super king sized bed and glorious views.


Hop Picker’s Shepherds Hut and Bell Tent, Worcestershire

For a glamping getaway with some added luxury, Hop Picker’s is the ideal choice. The shepherd's hut is tucked away in a woodland corner of the site, with a private hot tub, woodburner for those cosy nights in, and extras like robes and underfloor heating. Oh, and did we mention the onsite swimming pool?

Aston Eyre, Shropshire

At Aston Eyre, you’ll find three beautifully restored 16th Century barns, which sleep two to six guests. For your honeymoon, The Forge is the perfect accommodation. Lovely period features, a hot tub, garden views and a woodburner – as well as the most amazing bath! This place is made for romance.

Hutton John Estate – Highgate Cabins, Cumbria

If an active honeymoon is more up your street, book a stay in the Lake District at the Hutton John Estate. Set in beautiful woodland, but with far reaching views, you are in a real Lakeland haven here. Think wood fired hot tubs and dog-friendly bespoke-built cabins. This location offers a lovely mixture of inside/outside living – and you’re so close to the shores of Ullswater so you can indulge in a spot of walking, cycling or paddleboarding.

Woodpecker Lodge at Ribble Valley Holiday Homes, Lancashire

Woodpecker Lodge is the perfect romantic retreat! A true home from home, this wooden cabin is perched on the edge of a woodland, tucked away behind the onsite spa and pool. Spend your minimoon relaxing, recharging and embracing married life. Revel in the quiet, indulge in a spot of birdwatching and truly get away from it all.

Gorgeous Glamping @ Hoe Grange Holidays, Derbyshire

For the sustainably minded couple, Hoe Grange Holidays offers a lot of eco benefits. The luxurious glamping pods are insulated with natural materials and infra-red heating, plus you can order locally sourced food for a welcome hamper – ideal for your first day as a married couple! In the pods themselves, you’ll find a king size sofa bed, a kitchenette and stunning views, which can also be enjoyed from the wood fired hot tub.

Yurtshire, Yorkshire

Just on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, you’ll find a luxury glamping location – Yurtshire. Choose from Yurtshire Fountains in a meadow setting or Yurtshire Eavestone Lake where you’ll find tree-yurts built on high decks in the woodland. The yurts sleep four guests but are very cosy for the two of you – and you do not compromise on luxury here. The yurts are self-contained, with their own outdoor shower, kitchen, hot tub and seating area – perfect for outdoor living and recharging in style!

Weardale Retreat, County DurhamTruly escape into nature at Weardale Retreat, a shepherd's hut that’s a real sanctuary. In the scenery of the North Pennines, you can head out and explore the countryside, or relax in your own cosy glamping haven. With a woodburner, hot tub,  comfy double bed, BBQ and complimentary slippers and robes, you’ll be treated like royalty here.

The Boathouse at Tomich Holidays, Inverness-shire

To truly escape, head up to the Scottish Highlands and check in to an off-grid, private lochside Boathouse. Here you’ll find a luxurious king sized bed, with spectacular scenery right on your door step, which encourages off-grid living. A wind turbine and solar panels provide electricity but other than taking photos of the surroundings, your phone doesn’t need to disturb you. Cosy up by the woodburner in the evenings, and make the most of the views in your own hot tub – bliss!

Willow Cottage at Wood Farm Cottages, Norfolk

For a seaside honeymoon, check into Willow Cottage at Wood Farm Cottages in North Norfolk. Close to the market town of Holt, and a short drive from the stunning Norfolk coastline, you’ll find a perfect retreat for the two of you. This single storey cottage has plenty of exposed beams and home comforts, plus an open plan living area. You can lock the door and just be the two of you.
