Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away so there’s still time to organise something special. A couple of nights away at one of Short Stay Lewes’ luxury bed and breakfasts or studios is a great place to start, whether you want to take time out to relax together, ramble or do a bit of local sightseeing.
If you are looking for something a bit different to celebrate 14 February while you are here, then
The Bluebell Railway is putting on a special Golden Arrow dinner for the most romantic night of the year. You’ll start the evening in the Bessemer Arms, Sheffield Park, with a glass of local Bluebell Vineyard’s rosé sparkling wine and canapes, then climb aboard the train for a three-course dinner followed by coffee and petit fours.
The Golden Arrow Pullman dining train recreates the fabulous Golden Arrow, which once linked London and Paris with the style and panache that made it one of the most glamorous and famous trains in the world. A perfect setting for this intimate evening, the cost of the dinner is £85 a person.
How about setting your hearts racing for Valentine’s Day . . . literally with a day at the races? Plumpton Racecourse has a Monday 13 February race meeting. Spoil your loved one and book the restaurant – a race ticket and three-course meal is £66 per person – or maybe just watch the horses while you cuddle up with a hot chocolate and a panini from one of the stalls.
If dinner at a cosy country pub sounds more like your way of wooing, then The Blacksmith’s Arms in Offham has a special Valentine’s Night dinner lined up. There’s a glass of fizz on arrival followed by shared dishes for the two of you from the menu to rev up the romantic atmosphere.
