Valentine’s offer celebrating 150th anniversary of Lorna Doone

Fancy taking your Valentine to Exmoor to enjoy its rugged beauty this February?

Book a trip to us and marvel at the same breath-taking scenery that inspired the writer Richard Doddridge Blackmore 150 years ago to create his famous lovers Lorna Doone and John Ridd.

We’re offering a two-night post Valentine’s Day weekend package from £260 per room, with double occupancy.

Guests are invited to arrive on Friday, February 15 for a romantic two-night break here with us on Exmoor. It includes dinner that evening in our award-winning Coleridge Restaurant and handmade chocolates in the bedrooms. Bookings must be through our website for this offer and are subject to availability.

This special package includes a glass of champagne on arrival, a three-course dinner on Friday evening and breakfast on both mornings of your stay. If you wish to book for dinner on Saturday evening, then you can select dishes from our a la carte menu.

For the ultimate in romantic getaways, we also have two luxury four-poster suites priced at £380 for the two-night package for B&B and the three-course dinner on the first evening, plus champagne on arrival and handmade chocolates in the bedrooms.

Exmoor is the perfect location for a romantic getaway. Reserve your room now and treat your loved one to a special weekend of romance and gourmet dining!

There’s plenty to recommend this part of the British Isles if you’re planning a special break. For starters it is home to the lovelorn, fictional heroine Lorna Doone, who was shot on her wedding day by a spurned admirer, and it provided the inspiration for the romantic poet Coleridge. ‘Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor’ by English author Richard Doddridge Blackmore was first published in 1869, so it celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2019.

Plus, Exmoor is one of the few places in the country where you can really see the ‘stars shining bright above you’ due to very little light pollution.

You can cuddle up in front of a log burning stove, sleep in a four-poster bed, dine by candlelight, star gaze, walk hand-in-hand on a sandy beach, take a trip on a steam train and even fly your loved one to the moon with a trip to the lunar landscape of the Valley of Rocks. It’s all here!

But it’s not just the landscape and seascape that’s dreamy, we offer a bit of foodie heaven too with award-winning seasonal dishes made with love.
