Romance in a Campervan; Alternative Valentine’s Day Ideas

Romance might not be top of your agenda right now; sorting out the aftermath of Christmas and the New Year might be higher on your list!  However, with a new year comes new plans, new holidays, and new celebrations for you to get planning.  Valentine’s Day is actually pretty imminent and, we’re here to save you from “no, these weren’t the only bunch of flowers they had left at the petrol station”! Have you ever thought about getting romantic on Valentine’s Day with an amazing mini-break in camper van?

You can take the romance with you in a campervan!

Not Your Typical Valentines Gift

Forget saucy lingerie; frankly it’s often impractical and we’d rather have a store voucher!  Forget bland chocolates, oversized teddy bears, forget comical boxer shorts and boxes of aftershave. You can even forget a dinner date – going on a romantic getaway in a campervan is one of the most special things you could organise to do this February.

Which Campervan will be the Most Romantic?

You can choose from any sort of van to suit the kind of break you want, from locations all over the country.  Love the romance of a fire? Book a camper with a woodburner. Planning to stay in bed all day? A van with a fixed bed like the romantic Cleopatra is ideal. Love climbing, hiking and kayaking? Pick an adventure van like Wanda.

Get up on Dave’s awesome rooftop bed for some stargazing at night.

Where’s the Most Romantic Place to Go?

Do you fancy a midnight walk on a moonlit beach? Would you like to star gaze over mountains? How would you like to head back to a peaceful retreat after exploring a new city? Whatever Valentines ideas you have, we’ve got the perfect campervan for them at Quirky Campers!

I’m biased as my heart belongs to the mountains!  However, I don’t think you could beat a weekend hiking or scrambling in Snowdonia. Get outside just the two of you, work up an appetite then come back to a gorgeously warm van.  Pop a camembert in the oven and snuggle up in a blanket with a view over what you’ve just summited! 

A romantic Valentine’s Day campervan holiday doesn’t have to be at the far-flung corners of the UK; some more central locations offer loads to do (check out our top 10 things to do in Bristol for example). If you are more inclined to get some serious exploring in, then The Lake District or Scotland will certainly deliver a romantic vibe.

Some of our favourite travel and romantic locations are:

  • Fairy pools, Glenbrittle, Isle of Skye

The fairies that live in this magical place grants wishes to people in love…. OK that’s a lie, but it is pretty spectacular!

  • Grasmere, Lake District

Nothing says romance like a hike around one of the most beautiful parts of the entire world.

  • City of Bath

Get an evening pass to the Thermae Spa and chill out in the rooftop hot pool.

  • Durdle Door, Dorset

Play out your inner Khaleesi and Khal Drogo with Dorset’s version of the Azure Window!

  • Literally any Cotswold village!

Take a walk around Batsford Arbotetum in Moreton-in-Marsh.
