One of the most exciting aspects of a new relationship is the joy of being able to enjoy romantic, weekend escapes with someone special. After the demands of the week, there’s nothing better than heading out of town towards the promise of candle-lit suppers; relaxing spa treatments and unhurried strolls through quaint little towns.
While its perfectly possible to enjoy all of the above alone, or with friends, sharing weekend escapes while falling love is a magical experience.
At Attractive Partners, we know our clients value style, sophistication and good old fashioned charm: here are a few romantic, weekend escapes we’re sure you’ll adore:
The Broadway Hotel, Broadway
The Broadway Hotel is located in one of The Cotswolds most beautiful golden stone villages. Broadway itself has a beautiful collection of boutique shops and restaurants. You’ll also find some of the National Trust’s most stunning homes and gardens close by.
With its unpretentious cosiness and immaculate style, you’ll find The Broadway Hotel a great place to relax and unwind after a day of exploring the Cotswolds. Each of the nineteen rooms are named after Gold Cup Winners. Food is served both in the Jockey Bar, and Tattersall’s Brasserie.
Our insiders tip: The church at Snowshill is just a short car journey from the hotel…see if you recognise this stunning location from the opening scenes of the the 2001 romantic comedy, Bridget Jones Diary.
The Swan Hotel, Bibury
The ivy clad Swan Hotel is situated in the unspoilt village of Bibury, overlooking The River Coln.
A weekend escape to Bibury is truly a romantic step back in time: the village is clustered around its Saxon church and retains all of its original charm.
The Swan Hotel was once a row of seventeenth century river cottages – now it offers contemporary luxury against a backdrop of style and comfort. Rich fabrics and four poster beds create an atmosphere of romantic decadence. Award winning food can be enjoyed in The Swan Hotel Gallery Restaurant, and fantastic coffee in the French style Cafe Swan.
The designer and poet, William Morris, once described Bibury as ‘the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds.’…he also said “The true secret of happiness lies in taking an interest in all the details of daily life”…enjoy taking in every detail of this perfect escape.
Our insiders tip: Bibury provided the backdrop for the 2007 romantic fantasy adventure film, Stardust
Carbis Bay Hotel, St Ives
This stunning beachside hotel combines old English elegance with stunning, modern interiors. Each of the forty seven rooms are individually designed, some offering sea views. With an award winning spa and a choice of fantastic dining options, The Carbis Bay Hotel, is one of our all time favourite romantic escapes.
Set within 125 acres, the hotel owns its own 25 acre Blue Flag Beach, and offers a Sunseeker yacht for trips around the bay.
Close by, you’ll find the town of St Ives. Popular with artists and foodies alike, St Ives is bursting with life and creativity all year round.
Insiders tip: The Carbis Bay Hotel has been immortalised by the author Rosamunde Pilcher and appears as The Sands Hotel in her novels ‘The Shell Seekers’ and ‘Winter Solstice’, both published in the UK by Hodder Headline.
