Marcus Simmons, iknow-uk's managing director, said: "As well as the romantic names we also found a few quirky ones.
"Names like Argument Cottage, in Guisborough, North Yorkshire, and The Dog House Hotel, in Abingdon Oxfordshire could be a talking point for couples!
"However, to borrow a quote from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet 'What's in a name?' Certainly, putting thought into your accommodation and destination is sure to get you in your loved-one's good books.
"If you're planning to surprise your partner by whisking them away for a romantic getaway in the UK, don't leave it too late.
"Accommodation gets booked up very quickly ahead of Valentine's Day. If you don't, rather than snuggling up together in front of a log fire on February 14 you could find yourself in the dog house at home."
