Beyond the allure of traditional romantic destinations lies a world of intimate luxury and personalised experiences that set the stage for unforgettable moments. In the realm of modern romance, boutique hotels have emerged as the epitome of exclusivity and charm, offering couples a unique backdrop for one of life's most cherished milestones: the act of getting engaged.

With their distinctive character, impeccable attention to detail and breathtaking locations, boutique hotels have become more than just a place to lay your head, they are a pivotal location for a couple’s journey towards a shared future.

Many hotels are on hand to help you curate your perfect moment and even offer designated packages. Grantley Hall specialise in crafting magical moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.

The hotel says, ‘whether you choose the serene Japanese Gardens, an intimate room, or another special spot, their thoughtfully curated packages are designed to elevate your proposal into an unforgettable experience’.

Take full advantage of the enchanting surroundings of Ripon in Yorkshire and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature with their Garden Afternoon Tea Proposal Package. In the secluded Japanese Garden, you’ll find a bottle of Champagne, seasonal flowers and a special Grantley Hall gift. This will all be followed by a personalised afternoon tea experience as well as your own dedicated events planner to make sure every detail is perfect.

Alternatively, enjoy chocolate covered strawberries with lanterns illuminating the surroundings with customisable upgrades available to make your vision become reality.

If you’re already staying in the hotel, you can elevate your stay with the In-Room Package. Heart-shaped balloons and rose petals adorn the bed, instantly transforming the space into a romantic haven. Celebrate with a toast using the provided Champagne and canapés with the seasonal flowers and special gift adding the finishing touches to your unforgettable moment.

For stunning views over the Loch Ness, Foyers Lodge is your perfect proposal spot. The hotel doesn’t offer specific packages, but they can arrange and array of romantic gestures such as champagne for your arrival or reserving you the table with the best view of the Loch. The intimate setting of the lodge means guests can receive personalised service.

Take full advantage of the garden with an intimate picnic looking across some of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes. The gorgeous nooks and romantic seats throughout the grounds offer you plenty of opportunities to pop the question. 

Anna Low, co-owner of the hotel says they are keen to remain lowkey and individual without offering specific packages. If people want some help setting the scene, they are more than happy to oblige or to offer recommendations of local spots for peace and romantic remoteness.
