Soft lighting, a warm welcome, luxury furnishings and award-winning food are amongst the features that make some of the UK's pubs-with-rooms such wonderful places to celebrate romantic occasions, including Valentine's Day, with a loved one. From tranquil waterside inns to countryside retreats and community heartlands that buzz with a sense of joy and excitement. From a 17th-century former coaching inn, in a village which was hailed by William Morris as the most beautiful in England, to a 14th-century pub-with-rooms just a short distance from the sea. A 15th-century weaver's cottage to a literary fan's dream - a 16th-century Dorset coaching inn is brimming with atmosphere – so much so that it featured in Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles. Details like old beams, oak panelling and roaring fires, artisan regional and local ingredients including award-winning cheeses and home reared meats. It all comes together with delicious harmony to create the perfect Valentine's Day retreat.
