Christmas shopping maybe a little different this year, but one thing is for sure, a Gift Voucher is always well received. Gifting an experience provides something to look forward to and after nearly a year of staying in, we all need to lift our spirits and begin to make plans for 2021. Vouchers also have the added advantage of being easy to send in the post and of course no wrapping skills required! With such a wide choice available locally, we thought we would help by selecting a few for you, so here’s our suggestions:
Discover Newmarket runs a wide range of exclusive, behind the scenes guided tours. For the avid racing fan who has missed out on racing this season, then one of their half or full day tours to the famed Gallops and then a trainer’s yard may be just the tonic. Or for those with a more general interest in horses, tours of the National Stud make for the perfect experience. Alternatively, for those with a love of history, food or art then a tour of the National Horse Racing Museum or iconic Jockey Club Rooms may be more to their liking. Available to purchase for any amount or for a specific tour these really do provide memorable experiences.
The delightful, award winning Nancy’s Vintage Teashop is a distinctively quirky venue for breakfast, lunch and definitely afternoon tea. As the name suggests, they specialise in teas and their extensive range are all available to order online. This quaint venue even has its own Afternoon Tea Lounge, perfect for special occasions and small gatherings. They constantly theme and adapt their menus to suit the season. A Nancy’s Tearoom voucher can be used to purchase anything from their online shop as well as an Afternoon Tea to eat in and even takeaway!
Part of the Chestnut Group, The Three Blackbirds and The Packhorse Inn are two superb pubs located in the neighbouring villages of Woodditton and Moulton, respectively. Both venues provide stylish surroundings with fine dining experiences and fabulous accommodation. They have some excellent offers available including the Ramblers Break, Lazy Sunday package or Muddy Paw’s weekend – yes, they will even cater for your four-legged friend! Vouchers start at £25 and can be redeemed against meals or stays making this a most versatile voucher.
For those with a thirst for outdoor pursuits and a competitive edge, a voucher towards a fun and adventurous day out could be just the thing. The 60-acre site at Wild Tracks has so much to offer and is home to three outstanding motocross tracks making it one of the best circuits in the UK. Other activities include 4 x 4 Off Road, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery and Quad Biking to name but a few. Equally, nearby is the recently re-designed Phoenix Cycleworks that offers the most exciting, man-made bike park in the region for intermediate to advanced riders. They also have an amazing bike and repair shop and their gift vouchers can be used in the shop against perhaps a new bike or for an experience out in the park.
After the year we’ve had we must all know of someone who deserves a little relaxation and me time. Bedford Lodge Hotel’s luxury Spa, located within their immaculate grounds, is widely recognised as one of the leading spas in the region. They offer a range of packages with vouchers for spa breaks or one-off treatments. Enjoy their spacious hydrotherapy pool or maybe a cleansing mud rasul treatment. Whether experienced alone or with a partner or friend, Spa Vouchers can be purchased for any amount. The recipient may even wish to extend their experience with a meal or perhaps a night at the prestigious Hotel.
