  • Ye Olde Bell Proposal Package

    Ye Olde Bell understands that asking your partner to marry you can be a daunting task but it hopes to ease the pressure by offering a special proposal package to create the perfect mood for romance. It starts with an afternoon of total relaxation at Ye Olde Bell’s award winning spa, which features ten bespoke thermal experiences, stunning indoor-outdoor vitality pool, delicious Herb Garden Brasserie and alpine inspired alfresco relaxation areas. 

    In addition to spa access couples will be able to enjoy a 30 minute treatment in the beautiful double treatment room. Options include the indulgent Mini Turkish Ritual Massage and the revitalising Taste of Germaine de Capuccini Mini Facial. Once suitably mellowed couples can check in to their luxury suite, where the Champagne will be chilling, the rose petals will be scattered and a box of luxury handmade chocolates will be waiting. 

    On the evening a delicious three course meal can be served either in the privacy of the suite or in the elegant Restaurant 1650.

    The proposal package is priced at just £435 per couple.
