Love Is In The Air At Macdonald Hotels

26 January 2024

This Valentine's Day, let love blossom with Macdonald Hotels & Resorts.

Searching for the perfect way to spoil that special person? With Cupid on our shoulder, we've curated the sweetest Valentine's experiences at - or nearby - Macdonald's luxurious locations.

Whether you'll find your head in the clouds in Bath, leave your footsteps in the sands of a beautiful Northumberland beach, melt into a couples' massage, or share the delicate candlelit dining of your dreams, make sure this Valentine's Day is one you'll remember forever.

Here's a little lovers' guide full of things to do, just for two.

Walk Hand-In-Hand

Whether it's a sentimental stroll through the charming cobbled streets of the Cotswolds, a romantic wander along the sandy shores of Northumberland's beautiful beaches, or an amorous amble around picture-perfect Chester, find love in every step with that special someone.

Your destination? Perhaps a brief hibernation at The Bear in Woodstock, or to Chester's New Blossoms so you can indulge your appetite with a Valentine's Afternoon Tea. Alternatively, the Linden Tree Pub at Macdonald Linden Hall always offers a cosy table for two - perfect after all that coastal canoodling.

Dine in Style

Food, of course, is the language of love - and our masterful chefs are fluent in serving high-quality, seasonal British cuisine. Whether you'll be savouring a decadent dinner on the evening itself, or a sumptuous supper on the weekend either side, make sure you join us for a truly memorable Valentine's dining experience in some of the most romantic natural settings and cities around the UK.

Does your sweetheart have a sweet tooth? Linger over a Valentine's or Champagne Afternoon Tea with a dreamy selection of sandwiches, scones and fancies, served alongside the very finest teas. Now that's really speaking to us...

Go Up, Up and Away

Elevate your Valentine's experience in a truly unique way! Soar above the historic city of Bath with a hot air balloon ride. Drift gently over the iconic Georgian architecture, the Roman Baths, and the lush countryside surroundings. Both Bath Balloons and Bailey Balloons offer experiences that will truly give you a lift, including romantic trips just for two.

There's no need to come back down to earth - book an accompanying Suite Heart Valentine's Break at Macdonald Bath Spa and arrive back to champagne in your room, rose petals on the bed, tantalising strawberries to dip in luscious chocolate, and a sumptuous meal from our special Valentine's Day menu. You'll even get that all-important late checkout too.

Board The Love Boat

Hello sailor! Feel the love in the Lake District and cruise into your loved one's good books with a blissful boat trip on Ullswater or Windermere. Glide across pristine waters, take in the breathtaking scenery, and let romance rule the waves.

Windermere Lake Cruises and Ullswater Steamers both offer gentle Valentine's Day jaunts, or you could make a splash with a sailing experience for two at Glenridding Sailing Centre. Once you're back on dry land, make sure you push the boat out with a scenic stay at Macdonald Leeming House or Old England - our two laps of luxury in the Lake District.

Soothe Your Senses

Bask in the relaxing and rejuvenating glory of an intimate couples' spa day with your soulmate. Switch off from the outside world as our expert therapists work their magic with indulgent ELEMIS treatments, then drift over to our pool, relaxation room and thermal suite for some tranquil two's company. You could always combine your experience with a sensuous overnight stay, including Valentine's dinner with prosecco, breakfast, and a guilt-free lie-in with late checkout. Carefree, cupidinous contentment, courtesy of Macdonald Hotels - what better way to celebrate?

Let them decide

Still looking for the perfect present? Our monetary and experience gift vouchers are bound to make anyone's Valentine's Day. 

If pampering sounds perfect, treat your partner to one of our many spa vouchers including a tantalising ELEMIS treatment, and let them choose when and where to indulge.

Our selection of hand-picked experience vouchers also cover lavish overnight stays, fabulous fine dining, and even a round or two of golf. But should you still be unable to make up your mind, give your loved one the gift of freedom. Offer a monetary voucher redeemable on their choice of stay or experience, and truly make their dreams come true.

Best of all, you can choose to receive your voucher by post or email. So, should you only buy one at the very last minute, your Valentine will never know...
