Bovey Castle in Devon


Located in the gorgeous Dartmoor National Park, Bovey Castle is not the oldest castle in England, but it definitely is one of it’s finest. Built in the early 20th Century by the son of Viscount William Henry Smith of WHSmith fame, this property is an exquisite example of turn of the century architecture mixed with traditional English aristocracy. Over the next century Bovey Castle became a military hospital, a railway hotel, and now, in it’s present state, a state-of-the-art manor house.

You and your fine lady will enjoy the incredible amenities Bovey Castle has to offer. Be waited on hand and foot in your Grand Stateroom which is meticulously decorated and includes a private balcony, lounge and dining area. After you have rolled around in the Egyptian cotton sheets, you can enjoy each other’s company at The Edwardian Grill over a locally sourced menu and exceptionally fine wine.

Ruthin Castle in Wales


Ruthin Castle dates back to 1277 and is believed to be a favourite of King Arthur himself because of its mention in Arthurian legend. Many monarchs pranced the halls of Ruthin Castle, and used it as a royal residence until the 1900’s when it became a private hospital and then was converted to the hotel you can visit today.

There are few places in the world where you can take an elite female companion for a real princess holiday, but Ruthin Castle offers affluent members of society unrivalled hospitality and comfort rarely found elsewhere. The Suites of the castle are decorated in true extravagant fashion, and no expense has been spared creating an atmosphere that makes you feel like the King himself.

Lumley Castle in Durham


For over 600 years, Lumley Castle has been a landmark of the Durham region. The property was built by a famous soldier of the time, Sir Ralph Lumley, who unfortunately met his demise by execution after trying to overthrow King Henry IV. The Lumley’s occupied Lumley Castle for the next five hundred years with the property finally getting bought by a hotel group in the mid 1970’s.

Lumley Castle is a truly special place for those looking for romance and hoping to practice some chivalrous moves. The Suites feature lavish four poster beds, with a jacuzzi en-suite to relax together in Edwardian style. Flowers and champagne await guests and the main suite was the former castle chapel itself. Lumley Castle will provide a sensual backdrop for the man who likes to keep it classy and the woman who loves being pampered.
