A Beach Holiday on the South Coast
You don’t need to go far to experience the delight of a beach holiday. There are picture perfect beaches to be found in Cornwall, the Isle of Wight, Sussex, Devon, Dorset and so many other places.
Bournemouth’s award-winning beaches are famous for their honey-coloured sand, warm sea water and magnificent cliff line. With plenty to do both on the beaches, pier and in the town, Bournemouth is a fantastic choice for a family holiday.
You can surf, visit the Oceanarium, relax on the beach, hike or enjoy walks through some of the many exquisite gardens.
Stay in one of our Hallmark Hotels in Bournemouth and you’ll get to enjoy a heated outdoor pool, relaxing spa treatments and a blissfully comfortable nights sleep during your fabulous Bournemouth beach holiday.
Try a Literary Getaway in Stratford-Upon-Avon
What could be more poetic than exploring the birthplace of Shakespeare? Stratford-upon-Avon is an indisputably beautiful town full of history and quintessential British charm.
You can stroll down the cobbled streets, discover enchanting boutiques, visit historic houses and museums, enjoy a boat trip along the river Avon or see a renowned play at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
All this, while staying at the equally indisputably beautiful Hallmark Hotel Stratford-upon-Avon The Welcombe. Set in 157 acres of stunning landscaped ground, The Welcombe is a country manor house hotel with a recently renovated spa, exceptional rooms and an 18-hole golf course. In short, the absolute perfect spot for a literature fan’s staycation exploring one of England’s most historic towns.
A Cycling Holiday in the Peak District
One of our favourite regions: the glorious Peak District. A stunning natural landscape that holds so many treasures; from the limestone valleys to the moorland plateaus. This area just keeps on giving.
There are countless walking and cycle trails around the Peaks, so you can discover the area in an active way and have a healthy, feel-good break.
A Best Friend Trip to Chester
There’s nothing better than going on holiday with a group of friends or better still, just your best friend. A time for bonding, having fun, getting active or just mooching around the shops and dining out.
Chester is a fabulous and ancient city that holds so many delights, from the Roman walls, the famous Rows shopping district, the award-winning zoo and an abundance of Roman history heritage sites to explore.
After all the sightseeing, exploring and shopping, head back to our simply gorgeous Hallmark Hotel Chester The Queen where you can sit down to a delicious meal at our beautiful new King’s Grill restaurant. Then time to relax in one of our richly decorated royal-themed rooms; read all about the accommodation at Hallmark Hotel Chester The Queen here.
A Romantic Break in Bedfordshire
This historic county in the south-east is home to many lovely places to discover by car, on foot or by train. Historic country houses, parks, castles and art galleries, to name a few attractions in the area.
Our favourite place for a romantic break in Bedfordshire has to be our splendid Hallmark Hotel Flitwick Manor, a dramatically pretty heritage listed manor house. The bedrooms are elegant, the grounds are gorgeous, and we are secluded yet easy to get to.
With only 19 rooms, the hotel is intimate and exquisitely decorated. You will find antiques, period furniture and four-poster beds, so this Georgian manor is the perfect setting for an intimate break with your beloved.
