For those of you who have been wondering how Sir Paul and Heather Mills spent Valentine's day, today's Express has provided us with the answer. The couple spent that particular weekend in a cozy Brockenhurst hotel, in New Forest, Hampshire. Once William the Conqueror's hunting forest, today the New Forest remains Europe's largest surviving area of ancient pasture woodland - a place where wild ponies, deer and cows roam at will and drink from the watersplash at the bottom of the main street on their way to graze in ancient woods which surround the village. Brockenhurst is well known for its diversity of shops, tea rooms, pubs and high quality restaurants, but according to one of his fellow hotel guests, Sir Paul found another way to amuse himself that weekend: "We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw him walk into the lounge. He asked if there were any board games available. The waiter had a look around and all he could find was a box of Snakes and Ladders. You'd think they would have a more imaginative way of spending Valentine's Day."
