Stranded in style

If you’re stranded in the UK this week, or – quite sensibly – are changing your holiday plans to something a little more local, you may wish to consider this spate of new openings and offers among your list of luxury options.

The south-eastern English countryside is always a great place to visit during the spring, when flowers bloom and days are filled with hazy sunshine. Elite Hotels is offering an exclusive two-for-one deal on every night booked at one of their luxury country mansions. For a quintessentially-English experience, head to Luton Hoo Hotel Golf & Spa, where The Queen famously spent her honeymoon, or book a stay at the Tylney Hall Hotel (pictured), which is fantastically located in the secluded Hampshire countryside. Visit for more information.

If you’re in London and in need of some serious relaxation in London, rescue is at hand in the form of Shoreditch House’s brand-new Cowshed spa. The gorgeous treatment centre – which opens for the first time this month at the stylish private members club – offers the latest botanical therapies in country-home surroundings. A perfect end to a long weekend, the spa has recently added the ‘Morning After’ package to its treatments menu: eat fresh pastries, drink coffee and enjoy an express facial that fakes a full night’s sleep for an affordable ?32. To book an appointment, call 0207 749 4531 (

Finally, if you’re feeling peckish, be sure to book a table at The Dorchester this Friday: the renowned hotel restaurant is putting on a mouth-watering special menu to celebrate St Georges Day. Expect classic British fare like pressed terrine of Cornish lobster, Angus beef and Yorkshire puddings and a seasonal rump of roasted lamb. Meals cost just ?55 per person. Visit for more details.
