Usually, proposing is meant to be 'a man's job' - but tradition allows women to take over the proposal duties on a leap year, specifically on February 29. 

This year, women taking the leap will be able to get a free night at The St Moritz Hotel on the Northern Cornwall coast when popping the question on its grounds.

The 'Take the Leap' special is part of the hotels 'Month of Love celebrations,' where the engaged couples will not only get a free nights' stay on the Cornish coast, but will also be entered into a prize draw to win a honeymoon weekend at the St Moritz Hotel after their big day.

Hotel rooms vary from £199-£315 per night, including a three course dinner, breakfast, a bottle of champagne, chocolates and a surprise 'Love Luxe Box' of adult treats.

If you are planning on proposing to your beau contact the hotel and share your proposal plans and receive your refund upon checking-out (hopefully, with your fiancé in tow).

To share you proposal plans with The St Moritz Hotel contact Daniele or Tom on 01637 852130 or Daniele@excess-energy.co.uk or Tom@excess-energy.co.uk. To book your stay or for more information call 01208 869800 or visit www.stmoritzhotel.co.uk
