After a lot of back and forth, Dan and I finally settled on a destination and booked our flights for our spring honeymoon! We had always planned on taking it in April or May once it warmed up but before the busy summer travel season. Going somewhere neither of us had been was a top priority–and while I have been to London, it was a decade ago and Danny's never been, so we'll spend 2-3 days there before venturing off on the wrong side of the road toward Edinburgh with as many detours as possible along the way.
We've been watching a lot of Downton Abbey, Harry Potter, Outlander, Game of Thrones (which let's be honest, Westeros is practically the UK), and most recently The Crown... so it'll be kind of amazing to visit some of the beautiful, romantic destinations we've loved on screen. Staying in cozy B&Bs, taking long hikes, going horseback riding, drinking too much wine and beer at moody corner pubs, strolling charming streets... all via a road trip which is our favorite MO. We're excited!
The must-see stops shown above include the Cotswolds, Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey), the Peak District, Edinburgh, and exploring some of the highlands in Scotland. I'd REALLY love to sepdn one night at the Farmhouse in Oxfordshire because it looks bananas. But we'd love any and all recommendations if you've explored the English or Scottish countryside! We're off at the end of April and only have a week and a half!
