Good news for those who haven't yet nailed down their plans for Valentine's Day: TripAdvisor have just announced that the most romantic hotel in Europe is right here in the UK.

The picturesque Old Rectory Hotel in Devon scooped the award in the travel website's 2016 Travellers’ Choice Awards, winning the accolade for most romantic hotel in Europe and the second-most romantic hotel in the world.

Nestled in the heart of Exmoor National Park in North Devon, the tiny hotel has just 10 bedrooms, eight of which are in the old rectory itself and two of which occupy the adjacent coach house. 

Each room in the historic building is different and they all have special little touches for added romance, from a king size bed to roll top bath or a balcony overlooking the picturesque gardens.

When they're not sleeping, guests can spot ducks and deer in the hotel's trout pond or wander over to the beautiful coastline which is just 500 yards away.

Plus, the kitchen serves fresh North Coast fish and seafood as well as offering award-winning wines (win) and greens from its very own vegetable garden.

Even better, prices start from just £102 per night, meaning there's a bit of cash left over for some prosecco.
