As any parent will know, it can be hard to find time for yourself let alone your other half!
In between playdates, birthday parties and parent’s evenings, getting some quality time with your partner can prove more than a little tricky.
However, scheduling some time together just the two of you can massively help you to reconnect and catch-up with one another. When you’ve (eventually) gotten through the baby stage, getting away on a trip together can become more of a reality.
With that said, here are a few trip ideas for you and your partner to plan for!
It can’t get any more romantic than Paris – right?
With Paris just a train journey away from the coast of England, there’s no excuse as to why you can’t whisk yourself away for a long weekend.
With so much to see and do, including tourist favourites like the Eiffel Tower and The Louvre, you won’t be short on things to do just the two of you.
Stop in a local patisserie, get yourself a table on a quiet cobbled street and tuck into some authentic croissants and coffee. This is the ultimate short-stay break for parents who need a little time to themselves – and who doesn’t!
If you’re looking for something a little more far-flung, jet off to a beach location for some real downtime. Kicking back on a sun lounger with a cocktail in hand is the absolute dream for any parent.
If you’re looking for an even more secluded break, you can book yourself into a private villa, like the ones from Villa Plus. Getting your own villa is the ultimate private retreat so will give you two plenty of time to fully relax away from the crowds.
Maybe you and your partner prefer to be up and about rather than sitting by the pool. In which case, an adventure break will be right up your street. Scandinavia is the ideal spot for getting your thrill-seeker fix with an abundance of activities on offer.
A hike with your partner gives you some rare alone time and working together with your map reading skills will help you to realise why you make such a great team!
If hiking isn’t your thing, why not rent out some bikes for a couple of days cycling? Or, make it a water sports theme and head out windsurfing, kayaking or sailing to name just a few.
If heading abroad simply isn’t an option for you as parents, why not make a romantic staycation your priority?
With so many beautiful spots right here in the UK, you’ll be spoilt for choice on places to go. Any of the national parks, such as the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District would be an excellent choice for couples looking to escape the everyday.
With such stunning scenery, you’ll hardly believe you’re just a few hours from your home. This countryside retreat is great at any time of year. Summer will give you plenty of walking while winter will give you cosy fireside evenings – perfect for parents!
Heading on a holiday as a couple is a perfect way to take some time away from both the kids and the hassles of everyday life as a parent. There are plenty of couple holiday ideas out there, so get researching and put something in the diary!
