You know how much I love lists - well, today I have a list for my romantic readers who are looking for the best places to getaway for a weekend of passion and sex. The Times newspaper recently issued a shortlist of Britain's sexiest hotel rooms - ''from intimate boudoirs in boutique hotels to child-free havens with outdoor hot tubs''

Here's my top ten, in no particular order:-

'The Playroom' at Babington House, Frome, Somerset (£580, other rooms from £176) -

'Karma Sutra Room', The Bath Arms, Longleat, Wiltshire (£145, other rooms from £89) -

'Corfu Suite', Blakes Hotel, London (£765, other rooms from £225) -

'Red Four Poster Room', The Bull Hotel, Bridport, Dorset (£165, other rooms from £100) -

'South Wing Room', Charlton House, Shepton Mallet, Somerset (£200, other rooms from £95) -

'Sycamore Loft Suite', Chewton Glen, New Milton, Hampshire (£1000, other rooms from £325) -

'Room 15', Velvet, Manchester (£95, other rooms from £95)

'Inner Sanctum', The Witchery by the Castle, Edinburgh (£325) -

'Room 19', The Scarlet, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall (£270, other rooms from £190) -

'Seamus Heaney Suite' The Merchant Hotel, Belfast, Co Antrim (£225, other rooms from £140) -

One hotel that is not on The Times list is the Queens Hotel, Cheltenham. Their Queen Anne room below is a particularly romantic room for me and my wife and I try to book this room on every visit to the Cotswold town.
