Sit back, relax and celebrate a great British classic, with our limited winter offer.

There are few things more enjoyable, or rewarding in life, than getting stuck into a brilliant book, which is why Hand Picked Hotels are offering a Novel Winter Escape package, including an overnight stay, three-course seasonal dinner for two, breakfast the following morning and a copy of either Wuthering Heights or The Hound of the Baskervilles.

From just £149, this limited offer also coincides with the bicentenary of Emily Brontë’s birth, and if you are a fan of the nineteenth-century literary family then you might want to stay in Wood Hall Hotel & Spa in Wetherby, which is near to the village of Haworth, West Yorkshire, where the contemporary female writers were raised.

In fact, you can visit their home, which is where you will now find the famous Brontë Parsonage Museum, residence to the Brontë collections – one of the largest and most important in the world. Moreover, it is in the third year of Brontë200, a five-year programme celebrating the bicentenaries of all four sisters, and includes literary events, exhibitions and festivals.

Wood Hall was originally built as a country escape and remains to this day a tranquil getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Boasting a small health club and spa and sat among 100 acres of rolling Yorkshire countryside is really is a great place to curl up with a good book next to a roaring fire. 

Alternatively, if you fancy venturing a little further north to Yarm, then Crathorne Hall Hotel may captivate your imagination. Equally, if ever there was ever an ideal haven to kick your shoes off and relax with a good novel, then this stunning 20th century house set in 15 acres of private grounds on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, is it. 

If you have already ticked Yorkshire off your bucket list and you really want to immerse yourself in the authors who have given birth to the masterpieces of British literature, then venture to Nutfield Priory Hotel & Spa – a unique Victorian mansion house in Surrey with 15 feature rooms all named after writers. If you are planning a romantic weekend away, then the Byron Suite located in the tower and spread over three floors, is perfect.

All you have to do is chose your country house hideaway from our 20 hotels, book no later than the 29 January 2018 and celebrate a great British classic, courtesy of Hand Picked Hotels.
