My partner and I stayed in the Hideout House, courtesy of the hotel, after I won a competition of theirs on Twitter.

Hubby sprung a surprise break on me for our 20th anniversary. This is the perfect romantic hotel! 10/10. Plush, stylish room, champagne on ice, 'Huggie' teddy bear on the bed, mood lighting in the bathroom, underfloor heating and a flatscreen tv at the end of the hydro bath! All kinds of extras can be requested, like chocolates and rose petals.....
