Spring is here and it’s time to come out of hibernation and enjoy a relaxing break away. With so much uncertainty around trips abroad it’s time to think about booking one of the fabulous destinations here in the UK. With our fantastic venue contacts why not let us take the stress away of booking that much needed staycation this year! From Monday 12th April 2021 you will be able to venture out and stay away from home in self-contained accommodation and we’ve already got some amazing ideas for you:

Alexander Hotels. The Gatehouse at Alexander House. A unique experience, The Gatehouse, a two-bedroom private residence in the grounds of Alexander House is the perfect crossover between boutique hotel and holiday cottage. You can tuck yourselves away and enjoy the West Sussex countryside without disturbance – or, call on the Hotel Concierge for breakfast hampers, takeaway suppers from the Main House or even a cocktail delivery. And guess what? You can even book into Utopia Spa from April 12th too. A spa break before May 17th? Yes, it’s possible – if you’re quick! The two-bedroom Gatehouse has a gorgeous open plan kitchen, living and dining space, soaked in natural light courtesy of the orangery-style conservatory, with a secluded patio for BBQs and lounging. The styling and finish is everything you would expect from Alexander House, with Temple Spa bathroom amenities, AHC-specification pillows, Hypnos mattresses and more. From horse-riding to vineyard tours, pizza nights in to fine-dining evenings out (with the little ones entertained!), they’ve got plenty of ideas to make the most of your stay.

The Courtyard and The Gardener’s Cottage at Barnett Hill. Swap your four-walls for theirs, plus gorgeous gardens, stunning location in Surrey Hills cycle country – etc. You can snap up a room in The Gardener’s Cottage or one in The Courtyard to make your great escape prior to the full reopening of the hotel on May 17th.
