As the days get longer and the bluebells bloom, Northern England becomes one of the region’s most picturesque destinations for couples. The area’s vast natural beauty is most welcoming in the spring, before crowds arrive in droves to commence their summer vacations. In these mellower months, the mountainous uplands are incredibly lush. The North of England contains half of England’s national parks. Take in panoramic views from Scafell Pike, England’s highest peak, across the Wastwater at its base, the country’s deepest lake. No vacation would be complete without a visit to the historic counties of Yorkshire and Manchester, where the spring blooms are at their best. The region will be all yours in springtime, and your pick of accommodations, too. Whether you prefer to cozy up in a stone cottage or make a toast to your love in a luxury yurt, check our list of romantic getaways in Northern England.
