We all know that receiving flowers makes you feel wonderful, but buying flowers is the tricky bit especially at Valentine’s day. We’ve grown the finest David Austin and scented English garden roses, herbs and seasonal foliage to create hand-tied natural bouquets that look like they have just been picked from the garden. In fact every stem has been freshly picked from our sustainable and Fairtrade rose paddocks where we lovingly hand nurture every bloom and leaf with the highest regard for wildlife and the environment. The Real Flower Company are award-winning English flower farmers and florists.

Backes & Strauss has welcomed the Miss Victoria timepieces to the intrinsically feminine Victoria collection, a series which vows eternal love by the interlocking heart motif of Backes & Strauss’ 19th century jewellery. The Miss Victoria collection brings a renewed fresh and youthful elegance to the Victoria timepiece family. Whilst being inspired by the effervescent spirit of youth, the Miss Victoria simultaneously exudes a distinguished grace for a noble young lady.

As a horological jewel, the Miss Victoria Red Rose reflects the delicacy of youth; a time as precious as a diamond. The natural beauty of the mother-of-pearl dial, complimented by scintillating diamonds and rubies set in an 18k white or rose gold case, paves the way for the Miss Victoria Red Rose to blossom into a princess.Romance Package: including a one night stay with champagne and chocolate on arrival and in-room breakfast for two on the next day.
