Ready for Romance? BOOK A BREAK AT ONE OF THESE BEAUTIFUL PROPERTIES, WHERE THE PRICE TAGS WON'T GIVE YOU A HEART ATTACK, SAYS SARAH MARSHALL

Article excerpt

THE most romantic day of the year is rapidly approaching, meaning the pressure is on to present your better half with a suitably snugly break. With February 14 falling on a Wednesday, it's justifiable to plan an escape for either weekend - meaning your options are much greater.

Fortunately, there's still good availability at some of the UK's snuggliest and sexiest hotels - with many deals offering a great price.

Featuring fresh-from-the-boat crab and local game, the 2 AA rosette awarded restaurant is superb, and there's a good range of local ales on tap. How much: Superior rooms from PS120-PS129 per night, including breakfast and half a bottle of champagne; hot tub rooms from PS300 per night, with breakfast. | Visit crabandboar.co.uk KINLOCH LODGE, ISLE OF SKYE THIS remote property on the shores of Loch na Dal is regularly voted Scotland's most romantic hotel, and serves exceptional food - worth the journey alone. For Valentine's night itself, the hotel is offering a fivecourse menu with wine for PS99 (saving 30%).

And a 2pm check-in means there's ample time to explore the grounds or soak up sea views (you're never more than 10 miles from a coastline). It's a popular place to inspire romance; last year, 15 marriage proposals were made at the hotel.

How much: Overnight stays from PS50 per night per person (saving 30%) - with nine rooms currently still available for February 14.
