10 Rainy Day Date Ideas for Your Getaway

When the skies darken and raindrops patter against the window panes, it’s time to transform a dreary day. Embracing the cosy atmosphere, here are ten imaginative and heart-warming rainy day date ideas perfect for a getaway with your special someone in the UK.


Indoor Picnic

There’s an undeniable charm to picnics, even indoors. Lay out a chequered blanket, pack some finger sandwiches, crisps, and a bottle of wine. The ambiance of your living room or dining area, with the gentle pitter-patter of rain outside, will create an intimate setting.

Board Game Tournament

Engage in a friendly battle with a board game tournament. From classic Monopoly to strategic Settlers of Catan, let the competitive spirit soar. Don’t forget to craft a quirky prize for the champion!

Movie Marathon

Rainy days call for the warmth of cuddling under a blanket and enjoying a movie marathon. Whether it’s revisiting nostalgic classics or discovering a new series, let the cinematic escapades transport you to different worlds.

Cooking Competition

Challenge your culinary skills with a cooking competition. Select a recipe or mystery ingredients and let the kitchen creativity flow. Afterward, relish the feast and have a light-hearted judging session.



Indoor Mini-Golf

Who says mini golf is only an outdoor activity? Craft an imaginative indoor course using household items. Navigate through tunnels of cardboard boxes and putters through obstacles of books and cups for a playful mini-golf experience.

Indoor Treasure Hunt

Create an indoor treasure hunt that leads to surprises and hidden treats around the house. This playful activity is bound to spark laughter and excitement as you decode clues and solve riddles together.

Paint and Sip

Unleash your inner artists with an online paint and sip class. Let creativity flow as you dip brushes into vibrant colours, all while sipping on your favourite beverages. Cherish the joy of creating art side by side.


Museum Visit

Venture out for a cultural exploration despite the rain. Spend a day immersed in art and history at a local museum or art gallery. Wander hand in hand through exhibitions, appreciating the beauty of human expression.

Spa Day

Indulge in a luxurious spa day within the comfort of your home. Dim the lights, light scented candles, play soothing music, and take turns pampering each other with massages, facials, and relaxation.

Book Shop or Library Visit

Embrace the rainy ambiance by spending an afternoon at a cosy book shop or library. Explore aisles of books, share recommendations, and eventually, find a snug corner to lose yourselves in captivating stories.

Me and family come here basically every year and it never gets old. The lodges are amazing as well as the caravans, and when camping there is lots of entertainment! A lot of days there is live music, and they offer lots of games. There are two pools (indoor and outdoor) which both include water slides. There is also an arcade, restaurants and shops on site. It’s not a far walk from the beach and has beautiful scenery. Staff are great too. 10/10 would definitely recommend!

Just had 2 weeks here in a silver birch lodge and it's been amazing. The view is gorgeous from the decking area. The lodge it self is spotlessly clean and spacious The hot tub is a great bonus. Very quiet around the lodge area. The site it self is the best I've ever stayed on, everywhere is immaculately spotlessly clean. The outside pool is great fun. The water was warm but we did have alot of sunshine 🌞.We will be booking for next year definitely
