  5. If you are prepared to go that far then go to The Feathers (Feathers Hotel in Woodstock ) at Woodstock. Blenheim Palace on the doorstep, character and very impressive. I stayed in the suite a couple of years ago as well - fantastic.

    Half decent and that side of town is the South Marston Country club

    South Marston Hotel Swindon - formerly The Nightingale Hotel | Home

    For a bit more money you have the Blunsdon Arms and Cricklade Country club

    Castle Combe and Totworth Court both already mentioned are both really nice but I wouldn't touch the Royal Oak at Bishopstone with a barge pole as it is a pub that does organic food and the beer is arkells which is also known as dishwater.

    All depends if you want something olde worlde or modern and flash really, not to mention what your budget is.
     

  7. Got to be worth it if the sex is up to scratch. If it ain't do a runner and leave her with the bill.
    Happy days!
     
  8. cheers for the suggestions!!
    just ploughing through them now, and hopfully her later as well :)

    she definatlly worth it otherwise I wouldnt bother with the ground work now in the hope she still interested in 6 months time,

    cheers for the help and keep any more ideas coming

    my budget ideal is under £200 for the night but can strech if needed,
    but as i said this is ground work for when i return, so i wont be doing a mortgage for her yet.

    what she surgestted is a nice BnB with a pub attached, so im thinking old and log fire (not in summer I know)
    some where for a nice quite meal to chill with her after her treatment and then a really nice room to ...... well you get the picture
