Valentine’s day is fast approaching but if you haven’t already planned what you want to do then here are some of our favourite suggestions. Valentine’s day is a great opportunity to make a little more time for your partner, to take a break from busy lifestyles to spend some quality time together and express how much that person means to you.

Hire Your Own Private Island
Swinton Park offers you complete romantic seclusion in the form of The Island, which is set within 200 acres of heritage parkland and is available to hire by the half-day or full day.
It is a unique and peaceful venue, complete with an octagonal, Georgian summerhouse, which can be transformed into a remarkable setting with flowers, candles and fairy lights. The House has its own open fire and is equipped with rugs and blankets to create a cosy retreat in which to enjoy Champagne with caviar or a gourmet picnic from the Swinton Park kitchens.
