There is no better place to escape for a romantic break than beautiful Sidmouth. And, February is the perfect time of year when we all need to relax a bit. It’s cold outside, the festivities are over and Spring hasn’t quite begun. Then, there’s St Valentine’s Day, one of the greatest excuses for cosying up and spending some more time with your loved one.
St Valentine’s Day
There are quite a few myths surrounding the origins of St Valentine and why we celebrate on 14 February. There’s the Roman St. Valentine who died about AD 270, there’s a priest from the fifteenth century who was beheaded for helping Christian couples to marry as well as quite a few other Valentines throughout the years. But, many believe it was Geoffrey Chaucer who ‘invented’ Valentine’s Day, writing about it in his fourteen century poem, ‘Parliament of Fowls’.
Royal York & Faulkner Romantic Break
However it came about, we have chosen this time of year to give our guests the perfect romantic break. Between Friday 7th February and Saturday 29th February*, guests can enjoy sparkling wine and chocolates in their room on arrival. A candlelit four course d’hote dinner in the restaurant, on selected evenings. And, you will enjoy full English breakfast and afternoon tea during your two night stay.
Sidmouth in February
There are plenty of things to do in Sidmouth at this time of year. You can take a stroll along the Esplanade or enjoy some retail therapy in Sidmouth’s individual shops before heading back to the hotel for a light lunch at our adjacent café-bar, Blinis.
