10. Hotel 41, London
High back chairs in front of a roaring fire, black and white tiled floors, and splashes of animal prints start to paint a picture of Hotel 41. Even though the rooms at 41 have all the essential facilities, I wouldn’t bank on you watching television and drinking tea all evening!
9. Yorebridge House Hotel, Yorkshire Dales
What makes this hotel so romantic is that the moment you step inside, it feels like a home from home. The surrounding Yorkshire Dales provide the perfect backdrop to the elegant yet contemporary interior.
8. Chewton Glen Treehouse Suites, Hampshire
Peeking out from behind a canopy of forest trees in Hampshire, Chewton Glen Treehouse Suites let you rise above the rat race and escape for a spot of romance. Floor-to-ceiling windows give a fabulous view and open out onto a balcony, where you can relax in a hot tub – perfect for those lovey-dovey moments!
7. Dormy House Hotel, Cotswolds
The picturesque village of Broadway is brimming with romance and is home to Dormy House. Inside the hotel, log fires, panelled walls and phenomenal views are sure to make you starry-eyed. But the real stars here are the ultra-romantic rooms.
6. Combe Thatch Cottage, Devon
If your idea of romance is a chocolate-box village, secluded walled garden and inglenook fireplace, then you’re in luck. Combe Thatch Cottage has all this and more. It’s perfectly formed with loving touches that define all the romantic ideas you can conjure up.
5. Brimstone Hotel, Windermere
You want to get into his/her good books, rekindle an old flame, or simply say “I love you”. Well, at the Brimstone, any reason for romance is a good one. The Spa Suite, with an oversized bath for two, lets you unwind among tree-top scenery.
4. Salthouse Harbour Hotel, Suffolk
If you can take your eyes off each other for just a moment, you can admire stunning harbour views from the Penthouse Suite. Spend the day sailing on a luxury yacht then wine and dine your loved one before retiring to one of the romantic rooms.

In a league of its own, Gilpin Lake House has made its way to the top of our romance chart. And who could deny it such an accolade, with its mind-blowing spa that overlooks a tree-fringed lake, private rowing boat, hot tub, outdoor terrace and rooms with phenomenal views?
