October has traditionally been a great time of year for getting out and about and enjoying those wonderful autumnal colours. With the last chance of some warm spells and places not quite so busy it is the perfect opportunity to enjoy some quality time with friends and family. Here in Newmarket, whether you are visiting for a weekend, a day or just live locally, we have some great offers to tempt you out in October and Escape the Everyday.
A luxury, relaxation staycation awaits you at the amazing Bedford Lodge Hotel. Available on selected dates throughout October, this special treat for £160 per couple, includes a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival, a blissful night’s sleep in a king room and full English breakfast. You can easily upgrade to include a three course meal, for just £30 per person, in their award winning restaurant and of course indulge in a treat or two at the adjoining spa.
The Heath Court Hotel, one of the Best Western Hotels, is offering 3 nights for the price of 2 for stays booked before the 18th October and taken before March 2021. Its location at the bottom of the famed Newmarket Gallops means that it is perfectly situated to book an Early Riser Taster Tour. This guided tour takes you on an early morning visit to see some of the 3,000 thoroughbreds who reside in Newmarket, partake in their morning exercise. On this guided tour you never know which equine stars you will see, or indeed which trainers! You will also learn about the town’s fascinating history before our guide returns you to the hotel for one of Heath Court’s legendary breakfasts.
Ely’s Boutique hotel, Poets House, has really been mixing up their food and drink offering since re-opening. This month they are tempting us with an indulgent Afternoon Tea for just £15 per person (£9 for children). For those looking for an early supper option, then go Italian and enjoy a La Pala Sour Dough Pizza with a bottle of Peroni or glass of Organic Rosetta Rose from just £12. Available Monday to Thursday between 4 pm and 8 pm, this is perfect for catching up with your besties.
The Chestnut Group, owners of The Three Blackbirds, Wooditton and The Packhorse Inn, Moulton have come up with a great initiative for Mother’s Day. No, we don’t mean next year, we mean the one that they are recreating on Sunday 18th October. For those that missed out during lockdown, the two pubs are celebrating Mother’s Day Take 2 by offering a £20 Joules voucher for every Sunday Roast booking. In addition, there will be other giveaways in their prize draw which includes a Fairfax and Favor handbag, a Pinkster hamper, a Edmunds cocktail set and a gold necklace courtesy of Eleven Fifteen, to name but a few. We know where we will be heading!
