Whether you're unwinding in an outdoor jacuzzi while looking out onto the serene English countryside, or toasting a special anniversary in your suite after a night out on the town, a romantic night away with your significant other can be one of the best ways to reconnect and remember why you fell in love. The north of England has plenty of luxury retreats for couples looking to spend some quality time together says Dannielle Noonan, who manages the travel blog While I'm Young. Here are her recommendations, perfect for a weekend away with your other half.
Seaham Hall, Seaham
Located near the North East's rugged coastline and rich in romantic literary history, Seaham Hall in County Durham is the ideal place for a spa break with your partner. Lord Byron himself got married in this grand Georgian country house and today, each suite is individually styled with sumptuous furnishings and quirky decor. Couples can indulge in the tranquil spa, enjoy a cosy meal in the Ozone restaurant and take a moonlit stroll in the estate's manicured grounds. Seaham Hall's Garden Suites even have their own hot tubs, so you can look forward to a soak for two.

30 James Street, Liverpool
Jack and Rose's love story is one of the greatest to ever grace our screens, and what better way to pay homage to the tragic lovers than to stay in 30 James Street, whose history is intertwined with that of the Titanic? Immerse yourself in the glamour of past eras with a drink in Liverpool's first rooftop champagne bar, the Carpathia Bar and Restaurant, a nod to the vessel that rescued survivors. There's a luxury spa where you can have a couples massage and each room mirrors the splendour of the RMS Titanic.
