Nationwide International in the Isle of Man have Euro accounts.

I opened one as a savings account to take advantage of  times when exchange rates are good to save and pay off my mortgage in the future at a time that suits me.

I do not have faith in the Spanish banks following some bad experiences.

The account pays interest but the downside would be fees and limits on outgoing payments. Check them out.

All major UK Banks have 'International' bolt ons that offer Euro accounts - they are mostly expensive to operate. Barclays do a no fuss euro account but you must have a Sterling account with them to apply

If you've you've got an HSBC account you can open a euro account with them.  There's no monthly fees and you get a decent rate when you transfer money between your sterling and euro accounts and vice versa.  You don't get a debit card though but you can withdraw euros from your euro account at the branch without any charges.
