Craving a weekend of fresh air in the countryside? We’ve got just the ticket. Here’s your chance to win a two-night stay for two at the beautiful Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa in Northamptonshire…
Country & Town House have teamed up with country house hotel group, Hand Picked Hotels, to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a leisurely weekend break for two at Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa in Northamptonshire. The prize includes two night’s stay with a seasonal dinner served in the restaurant on the first night and a hearty breakfast both mornings, plus full access to the Spa and Health Club facilities.
Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa in Northamptonshire is located within an impressive 1000 acre estate, reached by a sweeping drive amid endless countryside views that set the scene for pure escapism for a leisurely break. The historic country house hotel dates back to the 1760s and oozes quintessentially British character and romantic charm with cosy log fires, an intimate award-winning restaurant with massive inglenook fireplaces and lots of nooks and crannies to nestle in, as well as a cinema to watch a romantic film or two and an indulgent spa offering facials and massage treatments and an outdoor heated hydrotherapy pool, an indoor pool, a sauna and steam room.
Its seamless blend of heritage architecture and cosy, modern décor make Fawsley a popular haven for romantic break escapees. It’s partly due to its secluded position and pretty private gardens landscaped by Capability Brown for hand-in-hand strolls (wellies and maps provided), but it’s also the hotel’s unique features and friendly service that completes its fairy-tale appeal. Features include the magnificent Tudor Great Hall with its dominant wood panelling and huge stone fireplace, a bar and the 2AA Rosette Cedar Restaurant with its original stone walls and open fires which provide an intimate ambience.
Interior design is sympathetic to its period yet is coupled with contemporary touches, particularly in the 60 bedrooms which include 11 feature rooms and suites. Couples can feel like royalty in the Queen Elizabeth master suite – where she herself once stayed – with its huge wood-carved four posted bed, a relaxing lounge area with fireplace and an ornate bathtub in the room or equally in the more modern Louisa Mary Bowater Suite with its roll top bath and impressive double aspect views that reach for miles.
