Last-minute Easter UK breaksPosted on: 28 March 2013 by Gareth Hargreaves
Treat yourself or the family to a cracking good weekend away this Easter
From bargain countryside elegance to chocolate and pudding indulgence or family fun, there's an Easter UK break to suit every taste.
Grab a country house bargain
De Vere Venues are a new alternative low-cost accommodation. Business event specialists during the week, these venues are now available for a weekend getaway, from £39 per room per night, based on 2 people sharing a double or twin room on a Friday or Saturday night. Venues include Victorian Cheadle House, close to Manchester and the city's shops, entertainment and vibrant night scene, or Sunningdale Park, set in over 65 acres of landscaped gardens and natural woodland, close to Ascot Racecourse.
From £69 per room per night you can choose locations such as Devonport House in London. Steeped in naval history and regimented grandeur, Devonport House is situated on the World Heritage site at Greenwich. It's within London's travel zone 2, outside the congestion charge zone, and makes an ideal base for the capital with its many theatres, restaurants, museums and attractions.
There are other venues around the UK. The price includes brunch on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays, served until 12 noon. Children age 0-14 stay free when sharing an adult's room. A supplement applies for children taking brunch.
Wrap yourself up in chocolate
Enjoy all the 'feel good' benefits of chocolate without putting on a single extra calorie this Easter with a self-indulgent chocolate wrap spa treatment at Savill Court Hotel, Surrey. The Jacobean style mansion, set in 22 acres of parkland adjoining Windsor Great Park, is offering 75 minutes of relaxing chocolate bliss, plus use of the Savill Spa and dinner plus B&B from £167 per person per night for a weekend break.
Cocoa induces the production of endorphins in the body which are capable of activating the natural process of fat elimination. The chocolate wrap releases 'happiness molecules', stimulates the senses, releases tension and produces a sense of well being. It might even help you loose some weight. But it's strictly no tasting as you lay smothered in the beautiful smelling chocolate!
Celebrate Easter on an Island
Celebrate Easter this year at The Grand Jersey, one of the island's oldest and finest hotels. A 3 night break includes breakfast, dinner on both nights and afternoon tea on arrival. Relax, unwind and be pampered with two Albert Roux inspired restaurants, and a champagne lounge for you to indulge in. Entertainment will be provided on Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Sunday.
A 3 night stay costs from £126.66 per night available from 25th March – 7th April 2013. The offer is based on double occupancy - single person supplements are available.
Treat yourself to a sweet break by the lakes
Lake District Hotels are offering a choice of 2 or 3 night stays for their Easter breaks, on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. Prices range from £142 per person for three nights at the Kings Arms Hotel in Keswick through to £244 per person for three nights at the Inn on the Lake Hotel on Lake Ullswater and £252 per person for three nights at the Lodore Falls Hotel on Lake Derwentwater.
Those who have eaten their fill of chocolate can still enjoy something sweet as the Lakeland Pudding Society celebrates the great British tradition of the homemade pudding, from Spotted Dick to Jam Roly Poly, at the Lodore Falls Hotel on the second Thursday of each month. The night includes pre-dinner drinks, a light 3-course dinner, wine and eight freshly prepared puddings, plus a glass of dessert wine for those who manage them all, followed by coffee.
Enjoy family fun, sand & sea
The Saunton Sands Hotel near Braunton has an Easter Programme including children's entertainment which includes a live band and disco, football and other sporty activities, a quiz and an Easter Egg race.
As Easter is falling exceptionally early this year, in most cases outside the county school holidays, there's a special one-off tariff. The package including dinner, room and breakfast cost from £87 per person. The children's tariff when sharing the room is free, you only need to pay for the meals.
Take a break In Brum
For any family wanting a weekend get away in the city the Birmingham Marriott Hotel is family friendly. Guests enjoy full use of the leisure facilities, including a well-equipped fitness centre, pool and full-service spa, with plenty of activities for the children. The stylish West12 Bar and Restaurant with its contemporary British cuisine offers a full menu for children so they too can experience this fine British cuisine.
If you don't want to leave your pooch at home, boutique hotel Malmaison can accommodate your four-legged friend. For families that prefer serviced apartments, The Spires is within sight of the canal side cafes of the Mailbox and an ideal starting point to explore the city's canal network, either on foot or by bike.
