A deep recession and lack of time are forcing newlyweds to consider other options when it comes to honeymoons, and the latest trend gaining popularity appears to be the mini-moon: a short break somewhere close to home where you can spend some real quality time together.

If a mini-moon sounds just what you're looking for, head to The Feversham Arms & Verbena Spa in Helmsley, North Yorkshire for a luxurious short break. Feversham's 'Mini-Mooners Package' includes two night's accommodation in a beautiful room or suite with Champagne and truffles upon arrival plus a Yorkshire breakfast in bed each morning. Relax and unwind in the Verbena Spa's heated outdoor pool and soothing hot tub, or why not go for the ultimate pampering experience with an intimate Elemis back, neck and shoulder massage in the romantic, candle-lit double treatment room?

Prices start at an affordable £550 per couple for two nights, which you could compare with the average £3,860 that couples spend on their honeymoon. For an extra supplement you can also hire your own vintage car to take a tour of the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors.
