We live on a beautiful island which boasts a rich landscape, wide array of indigenous wildlife and diverse architecture spanning many centuries that we seldom have any time to notice, and if we do peer out of the car window and glance at the distant hills it is just that; a glance. We don’t sense the sublime quality of the nature all around us because we are used to it. We tell ourselves it is boring – all the same – when it is anything but. The majority of us are guilty of it: the grind of everyday life can leave us slightly unappreciative of what lies on our doorstep and turns us to thoughts of us jetting on a plane – because that must be the only way you could possibly relax and enjoy yourself. Yet, ‘getting away’ is a state of mind and at Warner we are a firm believer of doing as much or as little as you like on holiday. Simply, changing your surroundings need not require any expense on jet fuel, the hassle of currency exchange or the embarrassment of trying (and failing) to brush up on your Spanglish!
Luckily for us all, there are many beautiful and interesting places to explore across the UK, right on your doorstep. For example, Warner’s Cricket St.Thomas is set in the heart of Somerset and Bembridge Coast Hotel has a beautiful sea view, nestled on the Isle of Wight. There is now a wealth of holiday destinations across the country that not only offers the scenic locale, but also provides the extensive range of sports and leisure facilities, perfect for everyone. So, if you’re the active type we’ve got tennis, aqua fit, archery, lovely hill or coastal walks, swimming…all sorts of activities to keep you occupied. But if you prefer life at a more leisurely pace there’s no end of gorgeous gardens, quiet corners, squishy sofas and gentler pursuits such as bowls and croquet to enjoy.
Now is the perfect time of year to take advantage of these retreats too, with autumn sales turning what is always an affordable getaway into an irresistible break which is great value. Guest tell us time after time our shows are comparible to the West End, our Team are so friendly they feel like they visit “a second home” and the food is just delicious that at the end of their holidays it’s happy faces and tummys all round!
The ‘revival of the Great British holiday’ is a now fact, proven by the number of “staycation” locations across the UK. This is echoed by our guests who return time after time to see our new developments and changing entertainment, food and overall experiences. If you’re entertaining the notion of a weekend’s break in one of the many gorgeous destinations our country has to offer then you should jump at the chance to win a half board, 3-night weekend stay at one of a selection of Warner Country and Coastal Hotels and Villages.
