There is something special about a mini-break in wintertime. Arriving at a grand country house hotel set within grounds sparkling with frost; indulging in hearty food or a relaxing spa experience to restore and rejuvenate; pulling on wellies or walking boots to explore pristine and peaceful countryside; snuggling down in front of a roaring, fire – not to mention the ever-present anticipation of snow in the air.
Great Little Breaks, the UK short breaks company, has a wide range of winter escapes to suit every taste, whether it be cosy relaxation, winter walking, afternoon tea indulgence, or snug luxury.
For example, clients can indulge in a two-night B&B stay at Brome Grange Hotel, Brome, Suffolk - a short break that will relax and revive. Enjoy a mini facial and back massage in the Willow Spa, as well as Prosecco and cosy dressing gowns in the room, in the perfect package to unwind and de-stress.
