If you're after inspiration for a Valentine's Day break, take your cue from this host of slushy films and use cinematic settings for your own happy ending.

Four Weddings and a Funeral:

Four Weddings and a Funeral was filmed in and around the home counties and in parts of Scotland. Visit one of the villages, such as Betchworth in Surrey, for a restful weekend away. Betchworth is a picturesque village on the bank of the River Mole, which contains the ruins of a castle and a beautiful church – the setting for the first wedding in the film.

Bridget Jones’ Diary:

Fancy a countryside minibreak just like Bridget and Daniel? The beautiful estate in the film is Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire. The Stoke Park grounds are spread over 300 acres of parkland, with lakes, monuments and a golf course. The estate's been around for a while, if you're after a historical air; it predates the Domesday Book of 1086.

Shakespeare in Love:

The iconic scene where the Greenwich fireworks display takes place and Viola meets the Queen is set in Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, a stately home built within a large park to the east of Hatfield. This is the place to learn more about Elizabeth I’s life through extensive paintings, furniture, and tapestries. You'll also be able to explore the manicured gardens, dating back to the 17th century, which cover 42 acres.

The Holiday:

If you haven’t got the cash to jet off to America for Valentine’s Day, visit the British half of the film - a small village called Shere in Surrey. Shere is located just outside Guildford and is considered a quintessentially English village, complete with a tea house, pubs and a church dating back to the Norman era. It's surrounded by stunning scenery, making this a great village to relax in after a hearty country walk.

Pride and Prejudice

If you’re a fan of the impressive stately homes featured in the film adaptation of Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, why not pay one a visit? The exterior of Pemberley was filmed at Lyme Park in Cheshire, Rosings was set at Belton House in Lincolnshire, and the exterior of Netherfield Park was filmed in Edgcote Hall in Banbury, Oxfordshire. If you fell in love with the village of Meryton, then head to Lacock in Wiltshire to enjoy the quaint English village vibe for yourself.
