Adult only hotels in the UK. Whether it's a romantic holiday you're after or a health retreat for total tranquility and feel good factor. Maybe you want to avoid the mad rush even though it's the school holidays, or perhaps you're taking time for yourself while someone else looks after the kids for a night. Family holidays are a treat, but sometimes a hotel break is just for grown ups, and these are some of our top recommended adult-only hotels.

For those seeking luxury and wellbeing in one place, a retreat to the famous eco health spa, The Scarlet, on the cliff tops of Cornwall, is hard to beat. Meanwhile, the tranquil idyll of Tor Cottage on Dartmoor is the perfect place for quiet contemplation, long walks and evenings spent reading a good book.

For something completely unique and different, a visit to Belle Tout Lighthouse in Eastbourne is the experience of a lifetime. The elegant style of The Mash Inn restaurant with rooms is a delightful setting where food is definitely meant to be savoured. And of course, the white sands of St Martin's in the Isles of Scilly are undoubtedly best enjoyed from the stone clad beauty of Karma, with its views across to Teàn Sound and Tresco.
