Hundred House Hotel, England

© Hundred House Hotel

To wallow in unabashed romanticism, take your beloved to the pleasantly potty Hundred House Hotel near Bridgnorth, Shropshire.

This centuries-old building is decorated with wild abandon. Heart–shaped cushions cover creaky antique beds, and velvet-covered swings entwined with ribbons dangle from guestroom ceilings.

There are other endearing features, from carafes of herb-scented shampoo to pillows sprinkled with fresh lavender water, and the gardens hide still more quirky features, including a teddy bears’ picnic.
