Best outdoor honeymoons in the UK

Where better to cosy up with a loved one for your honeymoon than in a hut under the stars? From Wales to the Lake District, there are plenty of outdoor spots to choose from

1. Wales

Gentlemen keen to impress their new spouse can do little wrong in booking a wintry retreat at Teifi Meadows in Lampeter, west Wales. Set against a backdrop of the Cambrian Mountains, this pretty site offers the Bothy - a converted shepherd's hut. Beautifully decorated with pastel colours and pretty trinkets, the Bothy features a wood-burning stove, shower and a double bed. Not just a romantic spot, it's also a great location for nature lovers too, as you will often spot the famous red kite soaring overhead this gypsy-style cabin.

Stays vary from short breaks to a week's holiday, with prices starting from £100pn. Occasionally there are even out-of-season bargains for just £50pn! All bookings include a complimentary breakfast hamper with home-produced sausages, bacon, eggs and cake.

2. Scotland

Secluded and peaceful, the Loch Tay Highland Lodges are set among some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery in the county of Perthshire. Surrounded by mountains, lochs and rivers, it is a great base for the more exploratory honeymooners. Local activities include fishing for salmon and trout to cook-up for a romantic dinner or enjoying lazy loch-side walks. These woodland cabins have electricity, a kitchen area and beds.

Prices start from £230 for a week's stay.

Feeling adventurous? Why not stay in a wigwam for just £20pn? It's a great alternative to camping with home comforts like a TV, fridge, kettle and microwave included.

3. Cornwall

Looking for a touch of luxury to inject into your honeymoon? The deluxe and stylish camping pods from Cornwall and Atlantic Surf Pods are just a mile from the beaches of Bude, making for a great walking holiday. They are also totally hidden away from the outside world, but don't ignore modern amenities. Each pod features lighting, cooking facilities, a king-size memory foam bed, underfloor heating and a private shower.

Tariffs vary from £75-£95pn; £285-£380 per 3/4 nights; or £525-£665 per week.

4. Cumbria

If romantic strolls and fine dining are your thing, then the Cartmel Lodg-et is the comfy outdoor spot for you. Located just 15 minutes from the village of Cartmel - home of the famous sticky toffee pudding - the site is ideally located for exploring the peaks of the Lake District or simply spending the days in Cartmel. Browse the shops, grab some local delicacies, or even enjoy a candlelit dinner at Michelin-starred L'Enclume. Inside the camping pod, visitors will find a double bed, TV, heating, a kitchen area and bathroom.

Rooms are from £40pn. Book via 01539 534252 or email jamieberrisford@live.com

5. France

France is often considered to be the most romantic country in the world, so why not go a bit further and hop across the Channel for a honeymoon to remember. Domaine du Lieu Dieu (in French), on the border between Picardie and Normandy, is a scenic site within the 70-hectare grounds of a former Cistercian abbey. It's the perfect spot for romantic walks, cycles or even a couple's day of horse-riding. The local countryside offers a diverse landscape of forest, cliffs and beaches and accommodation is offered in shepherd's huts or Yurts.

Prices start from £78pn and both huts and Yurts sleep up to four people.
