Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie enjoyed a romantic date in the English countryside recently.

The couple left their six children - Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - in the care of nannies and checked into the exclusive Coworth Park hotel for some alone time last month.

A source said: ''They had a romantic dinner at the restaurant. It was just the two of them. They ordered red wine and were dressed up a bit, like they wanted to look good for each other.

''After their meal Brad led Angelina to the Dower House, a private two-story, three bedroom cottage on the hotel's grounds. I saw them again the next morning. They looked like they'd just rolled out of bed. It was so cute.''

The couple got engaged earlier this year but they haven't yet set a date for the wedding or made any specific plans and Brad recently admitted choosing the location will be less about picking somewhere meaningful for them and more about finding somewhere that suits both of their busy schedules.

He said: ''We don't have a date yet. I don't know what's going to happen in two weeks never mind the New Year. We're such migratory workers that it'll be a matter of convenience location wise.''
