Love is in the Air! Our Top Romantic Places to Stay

7 February 2020

This one’s for all you love birds out there! Inspired by the giddy romance that St. Valentine’s Day brings each year, we’ve brought together some of our favourite couples’ retreats, just for you.

Think roaring fireplaces to snuggle in front of, downy beds with crisp sheets (you may even be able to cover them with rose petals if you ask nicely enough!) and indulgent, freestanding bathtubs for two.

Better still, these beautiful boltholes can be enjoyed at just about any time of the year… because why should romance be confined to just one measly day in February?
