FIVE OF THE SEXIEST PLACES TO STAY

Back to Inspirations
Escape the boredom of your own bedroom at home and head for some sexier accommodation. The perfect time to forget about work, kids, pets, in-laws and spend some quality time with your other half. From four poster beds to sea views, here are the five I would chose, which will hopefully get the pulse racing… Even if it is only for the scrummy breakfast provided!
Heythrop Park Resort

Right in the heart of a 21st-century spa resort and more than 400 acres of beautiful countryside is this 18th-century house featuring some very special bedrooms with four-poster beds and romantic elegance. The public areas of the hotel take you into an age of authentic historic splendour: sitting surrounded by powder-blue decor and massed candelabras, you could be forgiven for thinking you are in Versailles rather than Oxfordshire. And if you're overcome by the excitement of it all, there are pampering relaxations on offer in the nearby spa.

Lumley Castle Hotel

This 600-year-old castle can make you feel like a king or queen. Its opulent four-posters and the rich reds, purples and golds of the furnishings are seductively sumptuous in a right royal style. The King James Suite, with its 20ft-high Queen Anne bed is out of this world. But along with the historical elegance, the rooms have all the mod cons you could desire: they really do have the lot, including flat screens and free wi-fi. And outside, you are surrounded by beautiful parkland. The place is made for romance.

Highcliffe House

Originally a 19th-century summer retreat, this elegant clifftop house has breathtaking sea views, across the Bristol Channel to South Wales. The rooms are beautifully atmospheric and redolent of Victorian romance, with pastel shades, floral designs and crisp, white bed linen. Large, fluffy white towels and robes add to the feeling of indulgent luxury. The house is on the edge of wildly irresistible Exmoor, haunt of great poets such as Wordsworth and Shelley, and the setting for the classic passionate tale of Lorna Doone. Romance definitely fills the air here.
