Surprise your partner by whisking them away to a romantic retreat. We have plenty of holiday lets around the world that the owners say have that certain je ne sais quoi. They're perfect for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or just because you fancy treating them to something special.
Explore your passionate side on a European city break in Paris, Venice or Rome, or lock yourselves away for a few days in a countryside hideaway in the Cotswolds, Lake District or Scottish Highlands. For a sumptuous backdrop for wooing your loved one, book an exotic beach break in Barbados or Thailand.
Also available to book are grand chateaux, quirky houseboats, lavish penthouse suites and fairy-tale towers. For that extra special touch choose a place with a bubbling hot tub, steamy sauna or mesmerising log fire.

- the property is 500 years old and so we have to work with what we have. There simply isn't room in the kitchen to fit a full sized oven and extraction.
- The bath is described in the cottage description and we do provide a jug so you don't have to do any acrobats in order to wash your hair.
- I am very sorry you found the wood damp, we are always more than happy to sort problems out so you could have popped up and swapped it. The heaters were on thermostats set low, it costs a lot of money to keep them on high and usually this is enough to keep the ambient temperature up.
We are very sorry you felt only to give us a 3 bubble review. Thank you for your comments though.
