It’s a date!

It is undeniable; the beauty of the Cotswolds simply lends itself to romance. Whether it’s an anniversary, a birthday, or you just fancy treating your better half, we’ve got a few tips on planning an unforgettable date night in the Cotswolds.

How about treating your date with a scrumptious afternoon tea in Cheltenham?

But what next…?

Outdoor cinema

Jaws at Sandford Parks Lido

18th September 2016

 Ok, so Jaws is not the most romantic film in the world… but sitting out by Sandford Lido’s gorgeously retro 1930s pool by the light of the setting sun, snuggled under a blanket with a glass of bubbly, watching a cult classic with the person you love sounds pretty perfect right? And this is no picnic blankets on a cold floor affair, the Lido will be providing a choice of comfy seating options for you to choose from including deckchairs, directors’ chairs, cushions or bean bags to cuddle up on. The perfect way to see out a September evening. (Fingers crossed for a balmy evening!)

Let’s get Classical

Tetbury Music Festival

29th September-2nd October 2016

There’s nothing like classical music for making you doe-eyed and ready for romance. So why not drop by the beautiful Cotswolds town of Tetbury for a night of gentle classical music? Particularly inspiring will be the concert featuring The Choir of the Age of Enlightenment, which will explore the theme of love through sacred song.

The Literature of Love

The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival

7th-16th October 2016

With appearances from famous faces such as Ian McEwan; children’s perennial favourite Jacqueline Wilson; healthy eating guru Deliciously Ella; BBC’s darling Clare Balding; funny man Alan Carr; and astronaut Chris Hadfield, The Cheltenham Literature festival has something for everyone. But for a romantic literary date, perhaps try A Little, Aloud With Love. This unique event is an interactive reading of the eponymous collection of tales of loves found and lost. A truly romantic and interesting event for all the literary lovebirds out there.

After all of that romance, you’ll be sure to have worked up a healthy appetite! Finish off the evening in Lords of the Manor’s very own Michelin-starred restaurant. Whether you choose from the a la carte menu, or our 5 course tasting menu, Head Chef Richard Picard-Edwards is sure to whip up a fanciful feast to wow and satisfy. As Lords is the only hotel with a Michelin star restaurant in the Cotswolds, why go anywhere else?

To top off date night, spoil your loved one with a night in the finest luxury hotel in the Cotswolds. Book your stay at Lords here, or call us today on 01451 820243.
