BOE Your ultimate guide to valentines day

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city this Valentine’s Day and visit Burley Manor, the Grade-II-listed restaurant and rooms nestled in the heart of the New Forest. With sweeping views of the grounds that overlook its red deer sanctuary, roaring log fires and a relaxing spa to unwind in, this beautiful Manor house has romance sewn up. Oh, and it’s grown-ups only.

As a pre Valentine’s day activity guests can explore their playful side in Burley Manor’s exclusive Tempering Chocolate Masterclass where Salisbury’s master chocolatier and founder of Alexander Chocolate, Alex Seaton will guide guests through an immersive workshop on how to make their very own luxury chocolate bark. Make sure to also book into Burley Manor’s gorgeous dining room and indulge in the Valentine’s Champagne Dinner with its new Mediterranean inspired dishes, before retreating to Burley’s newly decorated cosy bedrooms that feature deep baths, warm panelling to create a relaxing tone and luxurious Hypnos beds for the perfect night’s sleep. Sounds idyllic, although tbh you had us at chocolate bark…
