I’m a big fan of a little luxury and night somewhere really special always stands out in my memory. We all like to be spoilt around Valentine’s Day and a nice gift of a night away is a present that you can share with your someone special. I have asked the Blue Book to send me some of their best deals and these gorgeous venues are open for a cheeky break all year round so you can be romantic anytime. This is a great way to use up a blue book voucher that you have been gifted in the past. Remember there is no expiry date on a Blue Book Voucher.
