Brocket Hall, which has the River Lea flowing through the grounds, is offering a ‘Valentine’s Package’ bed and breakfast weekend just after St Valentine’s Day.
The Daily Telegraph has a feature with plenty of Brocket history.
The mansion is now mainly used as a conference centre with occasional film shoots.
The one night with dinner for two costs £425. How about starting a less expensive bed and breakfast for walkers? It would work well as a break between Luton and Hertford.
