Romantic breaks in spring
Spring’s warmer days and longer evenings are perfect for whisking your loved one away on a romantic weekend break for two. Stroll hand-in-hand through Bristol’s tree-lined avenues and handsome Georgian squares or pack a picnic hamper and head for the Lake District’s impossibly romantic shimmering waters. Spend a weekend country break unwinding in the quiet intimacy of a country spa hotel or book a glamping weekend in a luxury tepee – just you and your partner, a crackling fire, a packet of marshmallows and the black velvet expanse of England’s star-studded skies. Love is truly in the air this spring.
Put a spring in your step with a tete-a-tete in a country house hotel, share a walk with heart-stopping views and chill out in a relaxing spa.
