Hitting up number two is Scotland's capital city - known for it's medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town, as well as shed loads of cute views of the hills and great cafe culture. Basically, go for a cold walk and then make your way around all the hot chocolate shops, yeah?

3.Keswick

Keswick is an English market town in The Late District, so it's the perfect place for taking in beaut views and going for wintery walks. The village dates back to Tudor times, and has some well Instagrammable features, which is always a plus.

4.Harrogate

If you do one thing in Harrogate: Go to Betty's Tea Room. Carl Smith off of Sugarscape HQ and 41st Hottest Lad of 2015 says it does the BEST cake and is great for profile picture opportunities.

5.Oxford

The home of Oxford University, this city unsurprisingly revolves around uni culture - but that's definitely not a bad thing. The medieval centre is INCREDIBLE, the Covered Market is worth a visit and when all else fails, you can grab a punt and go along the river.

6.Windemere

Most Popular

So Windemere is home to the largest natural lake in England, but fun facts aside, it's a cosy and cute little place for a weekend break away from your usual life. Hit up Jackson's bistro and grab an adorable rowing boat across the river if you're feeling faaancy.

7.Chester

Grab a bit of culture at Chester cathedral before stopping off at Brown's for a delish lunch and hitting up the gorge town centre for some shopping. Hire pedal boats on the River Dee and admire the Roman amphitheatre just outside the old city's walls.

8.Windsor

OK so Windsor is absolutely LOVELY, and it's hardly surprising old Queenie spends a lot of time there. Admire the castle from afar, stop off for a high afternoon tea or even take part in a public tour to find out about the history behind the place.

9.Newton Aycliffe

Situated in the country of Durham, Newton Aycliffe is famous for being one of the oldest new towns in the north of England. It's got a great town centre and is just a pop away from loads of super cute day trip ideas.

So there you go, you lot. Where takes your fancy? Where might you take your next stay-cation? Let us know your thoughts over on our twitter or in the comment box below,y'all.
