This year it was my first proper Valentine’s with my boyfriend. He had a surprise for me while, I had bought him several presents of including a real Italian leather wallet which was more than 50% off – bargain! And products from Mankind. All I asked for was flowers. In particular my favourite flowers – tulips. However, I wasn’t expecting so many!
He then took me to the surprise which was just half an hour away. It was a hotel and spa break at Macdonald Croxton. I had a feeling it would be something like this as I was instructed to bring my swimsuit, but I was still very excited. There was a pool, sauna and steam room which we tried out when we got there, then we had a fancy meal in the evening. Three course: salmon, steak and chocolate torte. Not forgetting the wine.
On the Sunday morning we had a lovely breakfast before rushing off to our spa appointments as we had over slept. We were both booked in for a back massage. It was so relaxing and then we spent time in the relaxation rooms and then back to the pool and sauna. It was a perfect weekend.
The flowers ended up being in two vases and one drinking glass because there wasn’t enough room. My room not looks like a florists, but I love it. Below I have shared some photographs.
