was thinking more countryside and quite village with a couple of pubs but both good ideas thanks

Found some deals on here: http://www.laterooms.com/en/k16296355_manchester-hotels.aspx?q=1_luxury-hotels

...but why not cook her a romantic meal, light some candles, sprinkle some rose petals around, a bit of Barry White and give her a nice back massage (small bottle of almond oil)

mate lives there and to be honest he reckons its full of odd balls!

i was going to suggest Chester too. The holiday inn were doing offers at the one on the outside of Chester whichis a post hotel - 2 for 1 nights or 1 night for just over half price.

Hillbark hotel on the wirral is nice. Beyonce booked the entire place when the european music awards were in liverpool. Its set in nice parklands with a decent pub at the end of the drive

Toxteth, Huyton or Moss Side ftw.

Rich pickings in Blackpool.


Isn't it like Boris' ride and park scheme ?.

Go to Bronte Country; Haworth, Old England Village at its best.

Matlock bath, buxton or bakewell.....no that far from Manchester and all have beautiful scenery and atmospheric pubs to be found.
