Fifty pairs of lovers have the chance to be bound together in love in a special ceremony 1,000 feet beneath the Mendip Hills conducted by the famous Witch of Wookey Hole Caves.

The Wookey Hotel is putting aside 50 bedrooms for Saturday February 16 with love potions and the knot-tying love blessing for a Valentine weekend with a difference.

Each pair of lovers will be given a piece of old rope blessed by the Witch and will go deep into the caves where they will each tie a knot in the rope while the witch casts her love blessing spell.

The weekend includes a complimentary bottle of champagne on arrival, entrance tickets into the Wookey Hole attractions, a unique evening cave tour with the Witch of Wookey and her love potions  and a romantic candlelit meal for two in the Big Top Restaurant followed by an evening of comedy magic with Jack Sparrow. Breakfast in bed will be served on Sunday morning to end the weekend.

The Witch of Wookey said: "Some people might think this is just money for old rope but it is going to be a weekend that the lovers will remember for the rest of their lives with a great deal of fun and laughter.

"I'm planning a romantic tour of the caves with lovers joined together by holding the ropes. Once we get to the magnificent Cathedral Cavern then I'll be asking the lovers to tie the knot while I read the blessing.

"They can then spend the afternoon enjoying the other attractions here, including our magnificent Wookey Hole Circus where they will see performers use the high trapeze and floating silks, keeping guests on the edge of their seats.

"Then it is an evening meal and the witch's potion and they can retire for the night in the hotel where every bedroom has a 22" television screen and WiFi access if they get bored. On Sunday morning everyone will be served breakfast in bed and they keep the rope as a token of their love forever!"

The Witch's blessing will read:

As the witch of Wookey I do proclaim

You bound together in each other's name.

Tie a knot and say the words

"We are linked together like two love birds"

I wish you both a life of love

As romantic as the stars above

I conjure treasure and bring fortune to bear

So you live in happiness with no despair.

And now a kiss and soon you'll see

You have true love…

So mote it be!
