The Tree Cabin
Where? Hebden Bridge
Why? Those who really want to get away from it all need look no further. Perched above an ancient millpond this cosy wood cabin is set within its own private woodland, meaning there's no chance of being disturbed as you enjoy a piping hot alfresco shower or dip in the cool stream.

Why? If you thought Hackfall couldn't possibly get any more magical, then you need to book a stay in its enchanting Georgian folly. This once revered banqueting house has been part of a decades-long restoration project. None of the rooms are connected, so you'll have to step outside to views across the Vale of Mowbray to access the bedroom, but that just adds to the charm of it all.

The BOX BNB
Why? If your other half told you they were whisking you off for a night in a shipping container, you'd probably be tempted to call the men in white coats. Personally, we think you'd be mad to pass up a night in one of these incredible cabins. Featuring high design, floor-to-ceiling windows and a cosy log burner, you'll be wanting to move in.
Riverdale Shepherds Huts
Where? West Tanfield
Why? There's just something ever so romantic about staying in a shepherds hut. Add to that a riverside location with an outdoor bathtub and you have yourself one very swoon-worthy staycation. After dinner in the nearby village, walk back through the wildflower meadow to be greeted by twinkling fairy lights and a warming fire pit.

Where? Ponden Mill
Why? Let your other half live out their cowboy/girl childhood fantasy with a stay in this American-style wagon. Located on the banks of the river Worth in Brontë country, the setting couldn't be any more romantic. You might have to get used to cooking on an open fire, but at least you can enjoy a continental breakfast delivered to your bed every morning while snuggled up in your electric blanket.

Where? Bolton Percy
Why? This 15th century, Grade II listed gatehouse once formed the defensive entrance to the village rectory of Bolton Percy. There's no chance of attack these days as you enjoy a romantic tipple out on the pretty decked area. Just be prepared to fall in love with its historic features and grand, super-king four-poster bed.

The Private Hill
Why? Imagine an evening stargazing across the Vale of York from the comfort of your bijou geodesic dome. Enjoy the quiet and calm of the countryside with all the luxuries of a hotel including an onsite bar and restaurant, an ensuite filled with The White Company toiletries, and a log burner for those chilly, winter nights.
Where? Old Byland
Why? Pass through a wildflower meadow and over a small wooden bridge that lies over a babbling brook to reach your boutique tent. Set in a woodland wilderness within the North York Moors National Park, you'll fall asleep under a blanket of stars and awake to dawn chorus. How's that for romance?

The Low Lodge
Why? Made up of two detached holiday cottages known as The Follies, this unique Grade II listed building was originally built as a ruin in 1825. Located just 3 miles from Filey, it's perfect for taking long romantic walks on the beach before returning to relax in its Gothic-style surroundings.
