Hello and Good Evening. Before I start, I just want to say, this is not a sponsored post, I paid £177 for my three night stay at the Abbot Hall Hotel. I treated myself, this is my reward for saving my pennies on my day to day living expenses. Anyone can stay in a nice hotel if they budget their finances accordingly. If people prefer to spend their money on pubs, eating out, smoking, boozing, electronic gadgets, designer clothes, new sofas, flash cars, then that's their choice. Unless you are very rich and can buy anything you like, it's prudent to prioritize on what is important to you.
I took a few pics while I was there, I'll show you around. The hotel is set in extensive grounds, plenty of room to amble around, up a long drive to the large car park, hidden well back off the very quiet road, surrounded by trees. Occasionally you get the sound of a train passing by, the railway station is close by. There is a swimming pool in a separate building, plus some log cabins at the side of the main hotel. I didn't photograph those.
Three spacious lounges with comfortable seating. Relax, chat, read, or watch the television. Wifi available in the lounge areas. If the weather is miserable just stay in the warm.
Coffee and snacks are served in the conservatory next to reception.
link here to check it out. I see they have a special offer from today, until the 21st of December, £39 per person per night, for B & B and evening meal, minimum of two nights. I think that's bloomin good value.
Christian Guild have five hotels in total around the country, this one plus Gloucestershire, Devon, Cornwall, and Derbyshire, and it looks like they all have the same offer of £39. I think I might give some of them a try.
Thank you to those who have updated their walking miles. Don't forget, it's the end of October, only two more months to go of the challenge. Some have already completed the 1000 miles, so well done to you. Let's have one more push and bump up those miles. Just because the weather is getting cooler, that's not an excuse for giving up. Wrap up and put extra clothes on.
Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
