Best hotels for autumn breaks

07 October 2016

Missing summer already? Perhaps it's time to treat yourself to a trip that will put that spring back in your step...

Of course, as we slide into autumn, Christmas creeps ever closer so it makes sense to save our pennies and choose an alluring English destination rather than splashing the cash on a trip to the continent.

Fortunately, our partner Warner Leisure Hotels offers a range of accommodation options that are ideal for admiring the flaming colours of the season. Here are a few of our favourites:

Nidd Hall Hotel

Nidd Hall Hotel, North Yorkshire

Who needs the countryside when you have 45 acres of award-winning gardens to enjoy? This is just one of the treats guests at this historic hotel can expect. Others include The Terrace, an award-winning restaurant where you can indulge in the grandiose, oak-panelled dining room; an indoor, heated swimming pool; and unparalleled access to the heather-strewn moors of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Bodelwydden Castle

Bodelwydden Castle, North Wales

For a truly memorable getaway, stay in this magnificent Grade II listed Victorian property on the rugged coastline of North Wales. The impressive stone turrets will bring to mind times long past despite the modern conveniences housed within such as nightly live entertainment and a superb range of leisure facilities. Stroll the award-winning gardens, visit the National Portrait Gallery or discover the Marble Church, nestled in the valley below.

Cricket St. Thomas Hotel

Cricket St. Thomas Hotel, Somerset

Stay in this classic English country house, just a 25-minute drive from the wild beauty of Jurassic Coast, and experience life as a lord or lady of leisure. Wander the new garden walks - a half or full mile ramble through 160 acres of stunning gardens - looking out for shy deer as you go, or engage in a sophisticate game of boules, croquet or disc golf to while away the days.
