Mini moons can either be a way of celebrating the most special of day in luxury yet with a short duration enables money saving.
There are two ways at looking at mini moons and perhaps the reasons people choose to do them. A mini moon enables a couple organising a wedding on a budget to experience luxury and enjoy the first few days of married life together yet at a fraction of the cost of a full or more honeymoon.
In other circumstances it can be a way of enjoying the ultimate in quality time together as newlyweds after the big day, not too far away from home and a way in which to gather thoughts after the most special of days.
For many couples now, both a mini moon and full honeymoon are organised and booked, lucky hey! If the bride and groom are lucky enough to be able to afford both then it is an excellent way to enjoy and take in the marriage and the honeymoon to its upmost. Rushing off on a long haul flight for two weeks straight after the biggest day in the couple lives can often be quite a shock. Taking in so much in such a short space of time and not having a chance to sit down and fully take the whole experience in. And so what better place than the Lake District for a mini moon, easily accessible, full of luxurious places to stay and eat yet the absolutely perfect location for romance and to get away from it all. Weddings becoming more involved, larger and in turn, more stressful, it’s no wonder mini moons are on the rise.
A hotel in the Lake District who have seen a huge increase in mini mooners this year is the Applegarth Villa in Windermere. One weekend in August there were three couples staying who were married that very weekend taking the opportunity to relax and unwind and this trend has continued throughout the rest of the year. The Applegarth offers unfussy luxury with superb Lake District views and high quality food with the large plus side of not allowing children enabling complete peace and escapism. All this yet the hotel is a stones throw from the centre of Windermere.
