Travel: Valentine's getaways

I think I'm not the only one who gets a little bored of the usual Valentine's gifts like heart shaped chocolates, a spa voucher or dinner. They ARE all lovely but if you are into Valentine's day but also want to do something a little different, why not check out some of these quirky getaways suggested by online travel retailer Red Spotted Hanky...These are all based in the UK so you won't have to go far and you can use Red Spotted Hanky to book your train, car or flight there.

WUNDERLUST GYPSY CARAVAN, LAKE DISTRICT


Wunderlust is a family run business in the heart of the Lake District that offers an exclusive adventure holiday. Here you will be able to take the reigns of your very own horse drawn gypsy caravan and meander around the quiet country lanes, staying in specially selected campsites in the picturesque countryside. I love the hippy vibe of this experience!

Prices start at £150 (min two night stay)
