Who is St. Valentine?

Valentine’s Day gets its name from the famous, Saint Valentine. No one is exactly certain who he was but the most popular story is that St Valentine was a priest from Rome in the third century AD.

During his priesthood, the Roman emperor, Claudius, had banned marriage because he thought married men became bad soldiers. This wasn’t something St Valentine agreed with and so he broke the rules and arranged marriages in secret.

When the emperor found out, Valentine was thrown in jail and sentenced to death. During his time in prison, Valentine fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and on 14th February, when Valentine was taken to be killed, he sent the jailer’s daughter a love letter signed “from your Valentine”.

Now, this story could well be a myth, but we’re all for the romance here at the Feversham Arms and with this in mind, we decided to put together an incredible Valentine’s Day package for you and a loved one to enjoy from as little as £400 per room.

Guests are invited to escape reality in our romantic haven at Feversham Arms. On arrival, you will be welcomed with half a bottle of champagne and chocolates in your room to enjoy at your leisure.

The package includes a 45-minute spa treatment in our award winning Verbena Spa. Choose one of our relaxing facial, massage, manicure or pedicure that all use the top-quality Temple Spa products. Those that want to make their treatment a little more romantic can request our double treatment room and enjoy your treatments together. You will also have full use of the spa facilities, which includes our popular outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi, for the duration of your stay. .

It doesn’t stop there, after spending the afternoon in our relaxing spa, guests are then invited down to our Weathervane restaurant to enjoy a three-course meal. You can choose from our Seasonal Market Menu or update to the a la Carte or tasting menu for something a little bit special.

After a relaxing night’s sleep, you will wake up to a hearty Yorkshire breakfast before heading out to see what Helmsley has to offer. There is plenty to do in the market town and we would recommend exploring the area on a romantic walk looking in the shops or even head out a little bit further and delving into the North York Moors.

Because Valentine’s falls mid-week this year we’re offering you the opportunity to experience our special package on both the weekend before and after Valentine’s Day, as well as the special day itself.

This is an ideal package for those who really want to treat their other half this year. So sit back, relax and enjoy this romantic getaway with your loved one.
