GALLERY: Valentine's Day ideas in romantic Wiltshire

By Jamie Hill - 25 January 2019


With 14 February just around the corner VisitWiltshire has come up with a roster of romantic suggestions to ensure a perfect Valentine’s Day.

What better way to celebrate your love than to organise a romantic weekend break? Wiltshire has a huge selection of quirky options to ensure a truly special stay.

Rest up under Wiltshire’s big skies on a Wiltshire glamping break with Mill Farm Glamping or sleep among the branches in their amazing treehouse.

Cosy up in your own Shepherd’s Hut at Highway Hill, or follow in Dame Judi Dench's footsteps and book into The Beckford Arms (she stayed there when filming Chocolat).

Enjoy uninterrupted riverside views at Troutbeck Guest House, rent your own lodge for exclusive hire on the Bowood estate or experience a luxurious stay at one of Wiltshire’s renowned country house hotels such as Whatley Manor or Lucknam Park.

The Stones Hotel near Salisbury has a selection of Special Valentines offers on Thursday 14, Friday 15 and Saturday 16 February (Pre-booking is essential). You can enjoy Afternoon Tea (including chocolate fondue) with Prosecco or a candlelit and indulgent Dinner Menu. Overnight Packages include afternoon tea, complimentary glass of Prosecco, dinner allowance, overnight stay and breakfast.

Wiltshire is renowned for its restaurants and the perfect destination to choose for a romantic dinner for two.

If you really want to impress, head to Red Lion Free House or Hywel Jones Restaurant at Lucknam Park who have each won a coveted Michelin star.

If you are both seafood fans then Rick Stein’s in Marlborough is the order of the day, or if you like your ingredients incredibly local, then book in to Pythouse Kitchen Garden where the fruit and vegetables are grown in the walled garden and the meat comes from farms a stone’s throw away. 

Vaughan’s Cookery School in Devizes is offering the perfect treat for food-loving couples on Valentine’s Day. Led by Peter Vaughan himself you will cook a beautiful Valentine's meal together and, as well as learning some new dishes, improve your culinary techniques and presentation. Drinks are included in the price.

Those looking for a more action-packed date could head onto the race track at Castle Combe Circuit or test their detective skills at Salisbury Escape Room   or Live Escape Salisbury.

If you’re partner has popped the question and you find yourself looking for a wedding venue, then look no further. Wiltshire makes the perfect setting with an array of venues including Bowood Hotel, Spa and Golf ResortBeechfield House, Casterley Barn or Stourhead
