my lovely partner is treating me to a weekend away before i go back to work. I fancy a romantic break kind of thing with roaring log fires and a big comfy bed so i can catch up on some much needed sleep. any suggestions greatly appreciated, i quite fancy the cotswolds, never been there but it looks so pretty.
two whole nights without a ten week old waking me! i feel quite weak at the knees!!

The Dial House Hotel at Bourton on the Water is nice, not to expensive but make sure you ask for a big room. Not flash but good food and nice ambience. Beautiful gardens too.

btw it's worth taking the all inclusive with dinner price as the menu is pretty expensive.

Hope you have a lovely time wherever you go.

I am looking for a hotel (can't remember the name) that dh & I stayed at a few years ago that had log fire and victorian rolltop bath in the room! Again it wasn't particularly flash but had a good restaurant.

Of course there is always Babington House!
