Escape to Down Hall for a luxurious Valentine’s Staycation

Looking for a romantic break this Valentine’s Day? Then whisk your sweetheart away to luxury hotel Down Hall on the Hertfordshire/Essex border for the perfect country escape. Just 45 minutes from central London and set within 110 acres of stunning grounds, the beautiful country house hotel, complete with a state-of-the-art ESPA spa, has crafted the perfect weekend getaway to ensure romance is in the air.


Pack your bags and escape the city for the Couples Retreat package, priced at £299 for two based on a one-night stay. Spend a leisurely afternoon getting lost in the hotel’s extensive grounds before returning to your room where a chilled bottle of prosecco will be waiting for you. Next, enjoy an intimate candlelit dinner in the hotel’s Grill Room, where a special set menu will be served. Breakfast is also included.

Or, if you’re really looking to impress, book into one of Down Hall’s luxurious suites and arrive in style in a classic car. Once you’re all checked in, you’ll have access to the hotel’s stunning Eden spa, where you and your love will enjoy a thirty-minute treatment each. The Ultimate Couple’s Retreat is priced at £998 per couple for the overnight stay and includes dinner, breakfast and transfers on both days within 25 miles of the hotel.


For one night only, the Grill Room will be setting the scene for a suitably romantic evening with a delicious three-course dinner, priced at £49pp for non-residents.

Start with heritage beetroot with burrata, grapefruit and almonds; or smoked salmon mille-feuille with oyster mayonnaise and avocado, followed by mains of poached hake served with broad beans, savoy cabbage, new potatoes and a champagne and caviar sauce; or a rack of lamb with a braised shoulder, mushroom and pea fricassee and dauphinoise potato. End the evening with pure indulgence and choose from chocolate fondant, strawberry mousse, pistachio ice cream, or a sharing apple tart tatin.

Make it a Valentine’s Day to remember at Down Hall.
