Carefree in the Countryside

Cricket St Thomas

Warner Leisure Hotels owns 13 unique countryside properties throughout the UK which are designed exclusively for adults. From the likes of Bembridge Coast and Sinah Warren Hotels on the South Coast to the striking Thoresby Hall in Nottinghamshire and Nidd Hall Hotel in Yorkshire, a tranquil break is never more than a couple of hours drive away wherever you are based in the country.

Perhaps the most notable of Warner Leisure Hotel’s portfolio is their Grade II-listed Cricket St Thomas Hotel Somerset. The 19th-century property is set in the heart of Somerset’s cider country and is noted for its glorious mature trees, lakes and gardens. It was here during the 1970’s that the popular BBC comedy To the Manor Born was filmed.

Thoresby Hall Hotel

Thoresby Hall Hotel & Spa in Nottinghamshire in all about indulgence. Situated on the edge of Sherwood Forest, this hotel is the perfect place to explore the locality or simply put your feet up and relax. The in-house spa features a Sanarium, Hamman Steamroom, Aromatherapy Cave and Rhassoul. Thoresby will also play host to a one off ‘ Strictly Come Dancing Experience‘ on may 13, when Anton du Beke and Erin Boag from the TV series pop in to show off their moves.

Holme Lacy House is another of Warner’s Grade I listed properties and here on the Welsh-English border you can discover the beautiful country of Herefordshire or head to the Welsh Hills. This hotel, 15 miles from the City

of Hereford, combines 18th century elegance with 21st century modernity. From its two AA rosette awarded restaurant, The Orchard, to its indoor leisure facilities, guests are guaranteed luxury.

If it is coast rather than countryside that floats your boat, then how about a trip to Gunton Hall Village in Suffolk? The hotel is set in 50 acres of woodland just a short walk to the East Anglia shore. The seaside town of Southwold, the sunken Saxon port of Dunwich and the cathedral city of Norwich are all within easy reach of Gunton, which also has its own indoor bowls centre.
