Sometimes you want a no expenses spared getaway with all the trimmings, but sometimes you simply want to escape for a little peace, quiet and quality time by yourself or with a friend or loved one.
As we look forward to the gradual return of freedom of movement and fewer limitations on travel, allowing us to visit our favourite hotel destinations once again, we all have different wants and needs when it comes to our wellbeing.
The healing powers of peace and quiet or alternatively, time spent putting the world to rights with a friend or loved one, really can’t be estimated. Neither, in our opinion, can the indulgent bliss of spoiling ourselves, and the people we care about, completely rotten. Spend time roaming in the hotel gardens that have come into bloom during these sunny weeks and months, tuck into a sumptuous brunch or lunch together, giggle over gin and tonics, sample the mocktail menu without time constraints, or enjoy afternoon tea as you flick through the pages of a magazine.
With that in mind, we have created a collection of hotel breaks that maximise the use of some of our favourite experiences for those who want to fill their day with life’s great pleasures. Walk amongst English vineyards, read that book you couldn’t get into while the kids kept asking questions, eat a meal that you haven’t had to prepare for yourself, drink a glass of wine in the middle of the day or doze in the opulent surroundings of a magnificent country house hotel. However you want to spend your break, this is your chance to simply escape for a while.
