Let’s not pretend, we are never very busy on the weekend before Christmas – too many festive chores prevent most people getting away, we know. (From the 23rd December to the 2nd January, though, we’re flat out all the way: so, speaking for ourselves, we rather relish the tranquility.)
But the decorations are all up, we are in full Christmas mode and this coming Saturday, we have a number of rooms that are ready and waiting for you to drop out of the turkey race and treat yourself to a little downtime. Enjoy – with your beloved – a 3-course a la carte dinner, a blissful night’s sleep and full English breakfast on Sunday morning. Rates per room (including all the above) start at £199 for a Good House double, rising through £230 for a Better House room and £275 for a Best House or Best Terrace room.
This offer is only available by phoning us on 01394 450205.
We have just one Best Garden room and one Best House room left for the NYE 3-night package. Both rooms have kingsize (6-ft) beds and en-suite bathrooms with a power shower above the full-size bath. Please see Hotel/room details for a fuller description. Please also note that while breakfast and dinner are normally taken at individual tables, to make it a bit more fun, there is a communal table of 6-8 guests for NYE dinner.

Best House double £1,275

If you would like to add Saturday, 3rd January as a nice wind-down day, we are offering NYE guests a 50% discount on the normal B&B rate with dinner to be charged as taken.
To book the 3-night package, please note full, non-refundable payment will be required*. We also apply a discretionary £120 service charge to each final account: this goes to the staff in its entirety and is divided equally among them all, seen or unseen. *If you do have to cancel we will, of course, try to re-sell the package in its entirety or part-entirety and will refund as appropriate. Please note the NYE dinner menu cannot be subject to dietary changes – please see High Days and Holidays for a copy of it.
