For couples, the definition of a romantic getaway varies. Some see it as an opportunity to escape together and strengthen affectionate bonds. Others might see it as an obstacle to escaping each other and would rather strengthen an imaginary noose around their partners' necks. Today's Groupon makes it almost impossible for the latter to be true, with a wonderful getaway for two people at the idyllic Miskin Manor, including:
> Overnight stay in an executive room (for two)
> Full breakfast (for two)
> A bottle of Fine Wine
> Access to some great spa facilities
A hidden jewel in the crown of the Principality, Miskin Manor is nestled in the heart of the Welsh countryside but less than a mile from the M4. The stunning accommodation is set in 22 glorious acres and blessed with a timeless ambience that makes a delightful rural retreat where you can while away the hours in a peaceful and relaxing stay. As you might expect from a country manor, all rooms are individually designed and exude the kind of classy charm that says 'private members club'. Most of the rooms have a view of the gardens and surrounding countryside that will snatch your breath away. In fact, there's a good chance that you'll neither need nor want to leave your chamber....
Miskin Manor has a fascinating history dating back to the 10th Century. The earliest records show that around 1100, Nest, a daughter of the Prince of Glamorgan lived at Miskin. Later, for six generations the house was occupied by the 'Bassets' who sold it to David Williams (also known by the Bardic title of Alaw Goch) in 1847. In the 1920's the Manor saw a great deal of society life and entertained the Prince of Wales (later to become Edward V111) on many occasions. The house was then transformed into a wartime hospital, and following this, into flats.
