The English aren't famed for their romantic nature - which is odd, seeing that there are so many fantastic romantic hotels amongst the many luxury hotels in England.
From boutique village B & Bs, to tasteful rooms at grand country houses and city hotel suites with evocative glittering views, romantic hotels in England are alive and kicking.
Some are new. But many are very old indeed. For my money, there are few who do old-fashioned romantic as well as the English.
So if you're looking for a place to wine and dine your other half, share an amazing four-poster bed or even pop the question, then you really can't do better than a swoonsome English abode. Where else can you have your own personal butler?
The Portobello was allegedly the site where Johnny Depp and Kate Moss's shared a champagne bath. Need we say more? This legendary Notting Hill boutique hotel has super-sexy rooms with gorgeous, one-of-a-kind bathrooms.
This luxurious country house hotel is just the place for a grand romantic gesture. Suites are lavish, open fires create just the right ambience, there's a wonderful outdoor hot tub and you have the glory of the Lake District just on your doorstep.
It’s a castle, a priory, and a chapel. This romantic bolthole on the outskirts of Whitby is ideally located for the Abbey, the moors, the North Yorkshire Railway, and the best fish & chips.
