Located in Cobham, Surrey, Woodlands Park Hotel is an ideal choice for those seeking a rural escape with easy access from London. This 57 bedroom hotel offers a range of Executive and Family bedrooms and suites and is set in beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens close to the Surrey Hills. The Surrey Hills is a nationally protected landscape of rolling chalk downs, flower rich grasslands, acid heaths and ancient woodlands that provides some of the best walking in Southern England. Guests can build up their appetite and choose from two excellent dining experiences during the week or over Easter weekend, the wood-panelled Oak Fine Dining Restaurant or a more contemporary Brasserie. The spring offer is available from £159 per room per night.
For a warm and welcoming hotel, look no further than Crathorne Hall Hotel, Yarm, North Yorkshire. With a two AA rosette restaurant set in a dining room overlooking the lawns and surrounding 15 acres of grounds, the food is a highlight of every visit to Crathorne Hall and on Easter Sunday, 8 April, the hotel is hosting a special gourmet evening with a sumptuous five-course meal from £70 per person. For those seeking a more active stay, why not enjoy walking the North York Moors? With over 1,400 miles (almost 2,300 km) of paths and tracks to choose from, this wonderful corner of North Yorkshire is overflowing with opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding. The spring offer is available from £149 per person. If it is a more relaxing weekend you are looking for this spring, then the Norton House Hotel and Spa, Edinburgh is ideal.
Built in 1840, Norton House Hotel & Spa was always intended as a country retreat and now it is home to one of Scotland’s top spas and finest restaurants, Ushers. Whilst the rustic Trossachs, arguably one of the most scenic areas of Scotland and great for walkers, is about an hour away from the hotel, Edinburgh Zoo is nearby for the family and the historic city of Edinburgh is just 20 minutes away by car. The spring offer is available from £139 per room per night.
