Looking for a romantic break this Valentine’s Day? Then whisk your sweetheart away to luxury hotel Down Hall on the Hertfordshire/Essex border for the perfect country escape. Just 45 minutes from central London and set within 110 acres of stunning grounds, the beautiful country house hotel, complete with a state-of-the-art ESPA spa, has crafted the perfect weekend getaway to ensure romance is in the air.
Pack your bags and escape the city for the Couples Retreat package, priced at £299 for two based on a one-night stay. Spend a leisurely afternoon getting lost in the hotel’s extensive grounds before returning to your room where a chilled bottle of prosecco will be waiting for you. Next, enjoy an intimate candlelit dinner in the hotel’s Grill Room, where a special set menu will be served. Breakfast is also included.
Or, if you’re really looking to impress, book into one of Down Hall’s luxurious suites and arrive in style in a classic car. Once you’re all checked in, you’ll have access to the hotel’s stunning Eden spa, where you and your love will enjoy a thirty-minute treatment each. The Ultimate Couple’s Retreat is priced at £998 per couple for the overnight stay and includes dinner, breakfast and transfers on both days within 25 miles of the hotel.
WINE & DINE
For one night only, the Grill Room will be setting the scene for a suitably romantic evening with a delicious three-course dinner, priced at £49pp for non-residents.
Start with heritage beetroot with burrata, grapefruit and almonds; or smoked salmon mille-feuille with oyster mayonnaise and avocado, followed by mains of poached hake served with broad beans, savoy cabbage, new potatoes and a champagne and caviar sauce; or a rack of lamb with a braised shoulder, mushroom and pea fricassee and dauphinoise potato. End the evening with pure indulgence and choose from chocolate fondant, strawberry mousse, pistachio ice cream, or a sharing apple tart tatin.
Make it a Valentine’s Day to remember at Down Hall.
