The hotel : Hartford House is set right in the heart of thoroughbred horse country. This luxury boutique hotel offers the ideal romantic retreat, complete with superb cuisine, sumptuous accommodation in just 15 luxury rooms and suites and a host of activities.

The chill factor : Leave the world behind when you arrive at this historic five-star contry hotel, home to romance, luxury, fine dining and spectacular views. take time out to enjoy a walk together, go on a picnic for two, try horse-riding or trout fishing, or indulge yourselves in a selection of treatments at the wellness centre. But whatever you do, have lots of together-time.

Indulge yourself : Regardless of when you visit the couples’ hideaway near Giant’s Castle, you’ll be in paradise. Spring and summer bring daffodils, a profusion of roses and flowering cherries, while autumn and winter offer perfect days and intimate evenings next to roaring log fires.
