How to enjoy your extra day on us

Looking for a reason to take a winter break or ideas on how to spend your time whilst away. We've put together a selection of ideas on how you could spend your days.

Enjoy a lazy Sunday lunch
There is nothing better than taking your time on a Sunday and just enjoying a relaxing day with a delicious traditional Sunday roast.

Visit a Christmas market and get in the festive mood
With festive markets and fairs taking place around the country, find one close to your hotel and browse the stalls, sample festive treats and enjoy a mug of mulled wine or cider.

Enjoy a bottle of wine by the fire
There is something romantic and entrancing about spending quality time together beside a relaxing fire with a bottle of your favourite wine. Enjoy with your partner, friends or family.

Take to the Ice
Ice skating rinks tend to pop up over the winter period in cities and at attractions, so why not search one out and put on your skates for a bit of fun.

Order room service
Nothing is more relaxing than just chilling out at a hotel, book an upgraded room or suite and you might never want to leave. Order room service and watch movies from the comfort of your room. You can even order easily from your phone on our Countrywide Hotels App - search for it in your app store.

Go stargazing at night
Winter nights are the best for stargazing as they are often crisp and clear. Wrap up warm, take a blanket and find a place under the stars to enjoy the magic.

Take a horse riding trek
With beautiful winter days ahead, book a ride at a local stable and you will discover amazing scenery from a different perspective.

Enjoy a hot chocolate
Head outdoors with some blankets and your hot chocolate. Find a spot on the terrace or in the gardens of the hotel and enjoy the splendour of nature and peace at this time of year.

Get on a mountain bike
Bring your bike or hire one locally and head to the woods or trails for some outdoor adventure. Choose your own pace and course to explore the area and what nature has to offer.
