If you’re looking for a little romance, why not head out of town for a short break at one of Marriott’s luxurious country hotels? Whether you’re celebrating a special anniversary, want to unwind with a few rounds of golf or need to indulge with some serious pampering, one of our romantic weekend breaks will be just the ticket.
Fall in love once more
There’s no getting away from it, these days we all seem to be working harder and longer. And that leaves less time for nurturing the special relationships in our lives. So, why not get out your planner right now and book one of our romantic weekend breaks and start to redress the balance a little? A spacious and serene luxury guest room with designer duvet, super-soft pillows and all the mod cons, fine dining with discrete and friendly service to boot and acres of countryside views to take in on strolls around the grounds are all just an hour or so away. Many of our properties offer special hotel deals at weekends too. Stay two nights and you can often get the third free or take advantage of an Escape package which includes sumptuous three-course dinner and chilled champagne on arrival. And once you’re arrived and started to unwind, why not enjoy a round of golf or a relaxing massage?
Ease that tension
What better to way to slow down and spend some quality two-time than to relax in one of our luxury spa resorts?

The indoor pool complex also houses sauna, steam room and whirlpool bath. There are 10,000 acres of parkland and lakes to wander in the vicinity of the hotel too. Or else try the stately elegance of Breadsall Priory on the doorstep of the lovely Peak District. The Priory Retreat spa here offers all manner of treatments including Decléor Facials, Indian Head Massages and Aroma Body Cocoons. And don’t think for a moment all this pampering is just for her either – gentlemen’s manicures, pedicures, facials and energising massages are all on the menu too.
Pitch up… and chill out
For many people, golf breaks are the perfect way to de-stress. Focus on the game, forget about the office, enjoy the scenery along the way. If pitching onto the green is your way to put the worries about pitching to the board out of your mind for the weekend, then Marriott’s brace or beautiful country golf hotels in the UK should do the trick. The St Pierre Hotel and Country Club is a gorgeous 14th century manor house, located among the verdant hills of South Wales. Two 18-hole courses await, both featuring wonderful vistas across Welsh countryside. The famous Rolls of Monmouth golf club is also easy to reach from here. Or else try the Forest of Arden Hotel and Country Club with its two top-notch courses, the Aylesford Resort and the Arden Championship – a range of golf packages are available here which include course fees. Golf pros are available for lessons too, so you can brush up your handicap if, despite all that relaxing, you still feel the need for a bit of a challenge.
