A magical getaway
Sometimes privacy is key when it comes to a proposal, and that’s where we can help. From our regal Grand Feature Collection to our charming and mediaeval-themed Crown Bedchambers, we’ve got a room to suit all budgets. With room service, views of our scenic gardens and lake, this is the perfect setting for a romantic proposal. And after they’ve said yes, you can enjoy a meal in our serene Garden Room Restaurant, which offers up even more beautiful views alongside mouthwatering cuisine.
A 17th century cylindrical stone tower windmill, located on the outskirts of the village of Chesterton, the Chesterton Windmill is one of the most picturesque sights in Warwickshire. Surrounded by fields of amber rapeseed, this wonderful piece of history stands tall amongst fields and local farms, and is a renowned beauty spot for nearby romantics. The perfect location for a picnic, or even just to sit and admire the view, this is one place where you can really wow your partner when you propose. Not only that, but with the charming village nearby, you can wander past the Cotswold stone cottages as your day comes to an end.
One of the most beautiful places to pop the question is in the midst of the Warwickshire countryside. To truly explore this picturesque area, we’d recommend lacing up your hiking boots and heading off on walk through the quaint villages and past the winding canals. A popular route is the Napton on the Hill, a 7km walk that takes you through the village of Napton and past its charming windmill, which in itself is a perfect spot for proposing. To really up the romance, why not pack some nibbles and a bottle of bubbly – they’ll be sure to say yes.
Anne Hathaway’s Cottage
If you’re planning to propose in Warwickshire, a Shakespeare themed trip would be perfect. After all, he was the mind behind Romeo and Juliet. One place we’d recommend visiting is Shakespeare’s wife’s maiden home, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage. Located in Shottery, a hamlet within the parish of Stratford-upon-Avon, you can explore this 600-year old cottage, as well as its original furniture. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, orchards, and woodland walks, it’s a majestic setting to pop the question.
