Travel: Bodmin Moor
A self-catering break needn't mean romance-crushing chores. At five-star cottage complex The Green near rugged, granite-y Bodmin Moor, you'll barely lift a finger – other than for an in-house manicure.
Check in Pick from five cottages set on 15 lush acres. Couple-sized No 1 has the modern, open-plan look we love, plus perks such as underfloor heating, power shower and iPod docking station.
Easy pleasures A bottle of chilled Champagne ordered for your arrival sets the tone. Pre-book beauty treatments, too, so you can look fresh and tousled rather than windswept!
Trips for two It's all about recharging your batteries – you've a lake and woodland for secluded strolls and Bodmin Moor for dramatic, shawl-wrapped walks.
Love bites Supplement dinners at smart dining pub The Manor House Inn with a menu of gourmet ready meals. Or hire a private chef for a night!
What it costs A three-night short break costs from £230 for two; a week costs from £310. Call 01579-362253 or visit premiercottages.co.uk
