The Cranleigh Boutique has announced a record number of marriage proposals over the holiday period, with six couples becoming engaged at the hotel since the bells pealed to welcome in the New Year. The luxury hotel, based in Bowness-on-Windermere, was named the most romantic hotel in the UK and third in the world last February, by travel giant, Trip Advisor. Since then, the hotel has seen a flurry of couples booking a stay with romance in mind and the establishment plays host to more than 100 proposals each year.

Amy-Elle Robinson stayed at the Cranleigh Boutique over the New Year period and was delighted to accept a proposal of marriage from partner, Christian. “The Cranleigh Boutique was recommended to us and we are now recommending it to our friends,” said Amy-Elle. “It was the perfect place for us to relax and escape. The room, particularly the spa bath, made our stay extra special and of course, a proposal topped off the most magical New Year and hotel stay we have ever had.”

The Cranleigh Boutique has drawn comparisons with some of the capital’s finest hotels, with designer bathrooms, mood lighting and luxury furnishings in each of the eighteen modern, individually designed bedrooms. The very private Hideout house opened in April 2013, with a ‘Cinema Wellness Room’ including a super-sized air spa bath for 2, a 65” hidden cinema screen and complimentary cocktail bar just some of the features enjoyed by those staying. Both venues offer an exclusive concierge service.

“We would like to congratulate Amy-Elle and Christian on their engagement and of course, all the couples who became engaged at the Cranleigh Boutique over the New Year,” said owner, Stephen Hargreaves. “We are obviously very much geared towards romance at the hotel, but six marriage proposals over New Year is a record even for us! Both the team and I work extremely hard to create an unique and unforgettable experience at the Cranleigh and this is clearly a contributory factor for those who choose to create their very special and private moments – such as becoming engaged – here.”
