A thermal pool overlooking the rooftops of the City of Bath and luxury treehouse suites where roaming deer greet you as you wake in the morning.  Where would your perfect proposal take place? Here are our top 10 spa options…

thermae bath spa

Thermae Bath Spa, Bath

Now working exclusively with, Thermae Bath Spa provides one of the most unique and authentic spa experiences that anyone could ask for. It is the rooftop pool however which really has wow factor for romantic moments.  

Visit early in the morning or stay late in the evening for the quietest times of the day and the bubbling bath-like spring waters provide a calming atmosphere offset by awe-inspiring views of the historic Bath skyline. Feel good factor, history and the most spectacular scenery make this a prime position to pop the question.


Chewton Glen, Hampshire

This is an opportunity to make a whole mini break out of proposal plans.  Chewton Glen is known as one of the most luxurious spa hotels in the UK. Offering everything from award-winning dining to exceptional spa facilities and a beautiful location, a proposal can really be set apart with a stay in one of their Treehouse Suites.  

Go to sleep close to the stars and wake in the morning to see deer roaming below in the morning mist, and choose your moment for an unforgettable change to say ‘yes!’

The Coniston Spa infinity pool

The Coniston Spa, North Yorkshire

Surrounded by 1400 acres of rolling Yorkshire Dales countryside, The Coniston Spa  is all about luxury. Spend the weekend roaming the countryside, fully entertained with hiking, off road driving, archery and falconry.  Then watch the sunset from an outdoor infinity hot tub in the spa for the perfect place to propose with a glass of bubbly in hand.

Rockliffe Hall

Rockliffe Hall, County Durham

This five star hotel coupled with its exceptional spa facilities has a reputation for romance.   Impeccable food, beautiful grounds, and an adult only spa area make for a tranquil and welcoming environment.  

Meanwhile, it is the spa garden that offers a totally unique experience. With two outdoor hot pools including an infinity pool, a Jacuzzi, and a lounging area surrounded by landscaped gardens and spectacular views, it is an exceptional place to celebrate starting that new and exciting journey together.

Down Hall

Down Hall Hotel and Spa, Essex

Just 45 minutes from London by car, Down Hall Hotel and Spa is easy to get to but feels a million miles away.  Offering luxury and escapism, the historic property dates back to 1322 and has retained many of its original details including Italianate design, ornate ceilings and an abundance of natural daylight.  

The Eden Spa is a small but perfectly formed space designed purely for pampering (rather than exercise), and the day can be whiled away in nostalgic bliss with a game of croquet in the garden, giant chess and of course afternoon tea.  It is the perfect setting for a proposal.

Stoke Park

Stoke Park, Buckinghamshire

‘There once was a woman from Ealing…’ said the great wordsmith Daniel Cleaver… not striking quite the right tone?  Nonetheless, Bridget Jones’s favourite anti-hero famously spun his poetry in a rowing boat on the lake at this very hotel.  He’s not the only one either. Movies including James Bond and Layer Cake have also had iconic scenes shot in this spectacular location.

Even without that Hollywood heritage however, Stoke Park is a historic and impeccable location fit for a queen. The estate dates as far back as 1066 and the grand property itself goes back, in part, to 1555. It is a place that really does make you feel special and there are a wealth of places around the estate for you to ask that all-important question. Just make sure you go for a good walk to pick your perfect moment!

The Garden Secret Spa at The Ringwood

Ringwood Hall Hotel and Spa, Derbyshire

You can’t really go wrong proposing at Ringwood Hall Hotel and Spa.  The whole place is beautiful both in the historic hotel or the new, botanical inspired spa itself.  However, for wellness lover, the luxurious private couple’s suite gives you the privacy of your very own mini spa - the perfect place to produce that ring.  

The spa is also surrounded by beautiful gardens, and is a generally sensual and romantic space to relax in however. So whatever you choose to do, it’s sure to be as sweet and purely romantic as you could possibly wish.

Tortworth Court, Gloucestershire

A grand country house hotel guaranteed to roll out the red carpet, Tortworth Court is for the person who really wants to plan the details of their proposal.  

The hotel will help you to organise your big moment and make sure that it’s a surprise, whether inside the magnificent gothic building or in the manicured gardens.  Definitely an occasion for upgrading to a suite, here you will find four poster beds and historic grandeur that once played host to the Queen herself.

Hilton Syon Park

Hilton London Syon Park, London

A contemporary hotel in the grounds of the Duke of Northumberland’s historic estate on the outskirts of London, Hilton London Syon Park is surrounded by historic gardens, but is just a stone’s throw from all the entertainment of London.  The result is somewhere that combines quiet time together with the opportunity for plenty of entertainment as well.

When it comes to proposing, everything here is done to exceptional standards and you have lots of choices. Roam the tranquil grounds on foot or on a tandem bike for a suitably scenic spot, or head to the spa which glows by candlelight  for a poolside proposal.

Cliveden, Berkshire

The place where the Duchess of Sussex spent the night before her wedding, Cliveden is just about as grand as a hotel gets.  Everything here is done to exacting standards and it really is fit for royalty. The secret garden has a beautiful pool, which is certainly one place you can propose.  

Alternatively, head to the water garden and to the restored gold and green Chinese pagoda, get lost with each other in the giant maze, or you could hire a boat and head out onto river in one of the most scenic parts of the Thames.
