Enjoy a cosy autumnal break with De Vere
As the evenings start to draw in and the leaves begin to fall, there’s nothing better than escaping for a cosy weekend away. To celebrate the new season, De Vere – a collection of historic mansion house estates and distinctive contemporary hotels – has launched an autumn offer of a two-night stay from just £250.00* for a family of four.
The offer includes breakfast on both mornings and a two-course dinner on one evening in the hotel’s restaurant. On arrival, adults will be given a voucher for a complimentary glass of Fitz English sparkling wine, a fruity easy drinking wine produced in a similar way to Prosecco, to enjoy at the hotel’s bar. The package allows up to two children under 12 to stay and dine for free with an accompanying adult.
De Vere’s hotels are located across the UK, from Surrey to Cheshire, on the doorstep of some of the country’s best local attractions and beautiful landscapes to enjoy the abundance of autumnal colours.
Escape to the Cotswolds and stay at De Vere Cotswold Water Park, surrounded by 152 lakes and the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, making it ideal for colourful countryside strolls. Guests can explore the great outdoors with several trails on the hotel’s doorstep, including the Three Villages Walk through three picture perfect villages, or the Cleveland Circuit along the Thames Path.
Visit for festivals such as the renowned Cheltenham Literature Festival in October, or to take a trip to surrounding attractions including Blenheim Palace, which has a whole host of exciting autumn activities from horse trials to Halloween celebrations and firework displays. In the evening guests can warm in The Old Boathouse Restaurant & Bar and indulge in a selection of seasonal dishes.
De Vere Latimer Estate, located in the heart of the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire, has the beautiful 10-mile Chess Valley Walk on its doorstep. Guests can borrow a pair of Hunter wellies so they can get outside whatever the weather to discover a wealth of wildlife, historic buildings, water meadows and nature reserves along the walk through what is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Those who would rather stay cosy indoors can take advantage of the hotel’s pool, sauna and steam room, or for fun with the family, board games can be found in The Library – a secluded spot in which to relax with a drink or indulge in a delicious afternoon tea.
For Downton Abbey fans, De Vere Wokefield Estate is located just 30 minutes from the iconic Highclere Castle – the site of the award-winning television series, which offers guided tours of the film set. Also nearby is Basildon Park, where visitors can embark on the Wild Play trail for beautiful countryside views and play stations along the trail to keep the little ones entertained.
De Vere Tortworth Court is home to a Victorian arboretum, housing over 350 specimens of trees showcasing vibrant autumnal colours of yellow, red and orange. Guests can borrow a pair of Hunter wellies for the duration of their stay and explore the 30 acres of grounds and colour changing trees.
For the more adventurous, the hotel has partnered with Land Rover Experience, Eastnor, to offer guests an adrenaline-fueled stay for an extra price. Guests can enjoy the off-road experience where they will be guided by expert instructors at Land Rover who help to hone off-road driving and obstacle handling skills, navigating challenging terrains with steep inclines, daring descents, muddy slide slops and wild streams.
