28 romantic breaks in the UK and Ireland

Heckfield Place, HampshireFor a gastronomic experience like no otherAs anticipated openings go, this one was a humdinger: stories about the extraordinary restoration of Heckfield Place made the rounds for 10 years before the red-brick Hampshire mansion opened to guests in September 2018. It’s all the more impressive, then, that the 18th-century demesne has wildly exceeded expectations. On site are two restaurants overseen by super-chef Skye Gyngell, who has the run of 300 acres of organic farmland to fuel her menus, and a 67-seater cinema showing new releases three times a week. The owner of the property, American billionaire Gerald Chan, has a passion for 20th-century British art, and many pieces from his private collection are hanging here; keep an eye out for the black-and-white photography by Elsbeth Juda lining the main staircase, and the striking portrait of Virginia Woolf by Marguerite Mary Darbour.
