Romance isn’t just for Valentine’s Day – because romantic breaks in Suffolk can be enjoyed at any time of the year. Nowadays we all have such busy lives, with work commitments, the kids and everyday life getting in the way, so there rarely seems time to show your loved one how much you really do appreciate them.
The answer to this could be to take a well-deserved weekend or midweek break together. A short vacation away from it all, even for a few days, will enable you both to enjoy some quality time together, making your trip magical.
Here are 6 reasons to spend a romantic break in the beautiful East Anglian countryside at Windmill Lodges near Framlingham. This is a place where you can discover attractive settings, historic towns and villages, and wonderful beaches to wander along, all of which can be visited whenever you want from your holiday lodge.
Getting Away from Everyday Life – Our daily lives are so busy, with little time for relaxation, and however much we try to take the time to enjoy an evening out or a get-together with friends, there never seems to be enough time to appreciate it properly. There will often be something which takes precedence over your best laid plans.
An escape from home, even just a short one, will give you a period away from the usual routine. All our lodges offer luxury beds and linen, with comfortable leather sofas opposite warm, real-effect fires. These extra little pleasures will soon begin to recharge your batteries.
Holidays Close at Hand – Jetting off can seem a great idea, but in reality, the bother of getting there with possible airport delays and other frustrating hassles make it an easier idea to enjoy a romantic retreat closer to home. This will leave you more time for relaxing – without the stresses of travelling too far. A break in the UK can be just as much of a treat as travelling further from home.
Two’s Company – Many couples don’t get the chance to actually spend much time alone together. With the kids at home, even the grown-up ones, there never seems to be a moment to seize any quality time. Taking a break in a romantic lodge will give you the chance to rediscover the joy of each other’s company; with the added extra of peace and quiet in the tranquil location.
Relax in Luxurious Setting – In each lodge there is a lavish hot tub, where you can relax for hours, just soaking away all your troubles. During your down time, while you are enjoying your break, there is plenty of time to explore the surrounding area, where you will find a multitude of activities to discover. Even if the weather is cold, the warm fireside and luxurious lodge will soon help you both to unwind.
Beautiful Countryside and Coast – A break away from it all would not be complete without a walk along the beach hand in hand. The picturesque surroundings of Windmill Lodges are set around a scenic lake if you don’t want to journey too far. If you do decide on a long romantic walk, then Suffolk’s Heritage Coast will quickly banish any stresses and strains.
You may decide to venture further afield, perhaps to take a trip to Dunwich, or Aldeburgh. Both are places with outstanding and unspoilt natural beauty, and offer fun boat trips and places to enjoy private picnics together. There are fascinating old buildings and castles which are only a short drive away, and plenty of chocolate-box villages to wander around. At the end of the day you can come back to your lodge and unwind even more.
Share a Romantic Meal – Sharing a special meal together must be one of the most pleasant experiences; whether going out to a restaurant or eating in front of the welcoming coal-effect fire in the lodge. Romantic breaks in Suffolk offer the chance to visit a wide selection of fine dining restaurants, and in Aldeburgh, just half an hour’s drive away, The Brudenell has 2 AA Rosettes. Here a range of seasonal dishes can be enjoyed alfresco on the sea-facing terrace. There are also many excellent country pubs to choose from in the area surrounding Windmill Lodges.
However, you may decide to cook in the well-equipped kitchen in the lodge. You will find there are plenty of local food shops offering an eclectic mix of fresh food to enjoy. Leo’s Deli in Framlingham is one such place, just minutes away by car, with cheeses, charcuterie, chocolates and more. John Hutton, the butcher in nearby Earl Soham, also has a great selection of fresh meats as well as a deli counter. With so much delicious food to choose from in the area, you will not be disappointed.
