Let’s face it – after the stress of planning a wedding, finding the time to sort your honeymoon can be a bit of a nightmare. This is made even more difficult when you need to consider passports, who will look after your pets, getting insurance and checking in on time. Instead, more and more UK newlyweds are choosing to mini moon at home, saving money, time and hassle!  Here are some of our favourite places to mini moon…

Mini moon hotspots


Warren Farm, Somerset

If you have children already, one of the biggest nightmares with a honeymoon abroad is to arrange childcare. With a mini moon, you can take them along with you – in fact, it can make your trip even more memorable! Warren Farm in Cheddar is the ultimate place to spend a glamping weekend in their super-stylish yurts. There’s plenty to see and do with animals, amazing walks and Cheddar gorge on your doorstep.

Ston Easton, nr Bath

This mini moon hotspot has it all, starting with a variety of accommodation. We love Ston Easton’s Gardener’s Cottage for a cosy stay, or you can enjoy the beautiful rooms in the main mansion. With croquet on the lawns, golf, billiards and more available to keep you entertained, plus daily afternoon English tea, it’s a civilised place to enjoy your first break as husband and wife.

The White Tower, Scotland

The White Tower of Tayworth Castle in Scotland is a picturesque spot in which to mini moon. This highland haven has lots to do inside and out with amazing en-suite rooms, hot tubs on the roof and shops and bars nearby.

The Hotel Grosvenor, Shaftesbury

If you’re looking for a place to get away from it all, then you need to check out the Hotel Grosvenor in Shaftesbury. Tranquility doesn’t begin to explain the peaceful atmosphere here. The ideal spot to sit back, unwind and get away from it all.

Totworth Court, Gloucestershire

For a really posh weekend away, try Totworth Court in Gloucestershire with its rich, royal history dating back to the 13th century. Forget Westminster Abbey, the Westminster Suite is fit for a newlywed King and Queen, with fourposter beds and large windows overlooking the vast grounds.
