If the words ‘mission impossible’ remind you that you need to buy a Christmas gift for a loved one then fret no more.
Today’s Big Deal on a two night mini-break at Chevin Country Park Hotel & Spa in West Yorkshire could be just the ticket.
With vouchers valid from 2nd January to the end of March, this brilliant offer could make someone very happy when it falls from their card on Christmas morning.
Located above the market town of Otley, Chevin Country Park Hotel is set in 44 acres of unspoiled woodland grounds.
Along with welcoming rooms and excellent restaurants, it offers all the facilities of a great leisure club and a stunning Sonas Spa in which to enjoy massages, wraps and other treats.
Two night mini-break
Available Sunday to Friday, this offer is for two people to enjoy a two consecutive night stay with breakfast in a double or twin room at Chevin Country Park Hotel & Spa.
As comfortable as they are well-appointed, rooms within the hotel offer superb views of the surrounding woodland, and overlook the main lake.
A full Yorkshire breakfast each morning is included in the offer. Awarded an AA Rosette, the Lakeside Restaurant is a welcoming space with a terrace overhanging the lake and a roof balcony for views over the grounds.
As far as is possible, the menus feature local organic produce including Nidderdale lamb, Bedale salmon and mussels from the Yorkshire coast.
In the conservatory bar, a roaring log fire and lake views will make you feel as though you have been transported to a Norwegian woodland retreat while the Garden Lounge has an extensive daytime menu which includes such favourites as beer-battered Whitby haddock, prime Yorkshire beef burgers and grilled, Nidderdale lamb chops.
Use of leisure facilities
As well as a Sonas spa offering a great range of beauty treatments, the hotel has an outdoor walk-in hot tub by the edge of the main lake.
The leisure club has a gym along with a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi which are open to all guests.
There is even an outdoor tennis court with equipment available from hotel reception.
See & do
If the tennis sounds too energetic, guests can also enjoy complimentary coarse fishing in the hotel’s main lake.
It is stocked with carp, roach and other varieties of fish, in particular the elusive Big Bertha, the biggest fish in the lake.
The woodland grounds are great for walks with roe deer, squirrels, badgers and water voles also making their home here.
Chevin Country Park Hotel & Spa has been winning fans on TripAdvisor. This is what a recent guest had to say:
‘Good short break. Just returned from the Chevin Country Park Hotel after a short midweek break. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely receptionist who dealt with us in a friendly and efficient manner. Our room was very nice with television, stereo, tea and coffee making facilities. Food served in the main restaurant was amazing at dinner time and breakfast and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The location of the hotel is ideal for exploring the local area of the Yorkshire dales with Ilkley and Skipton nearby. A good hotel for a break… I would use this hotel again.’
This Big Deal on a two night mini-break would make a superb Christmas present. Who wouldn’t want to start 2014 with a short break?
