Overview

Take a well-deserved break away from the norm with this luxury overnight stay for two. Choose from a number of beautiful country house locations offering wonderful views and sumptuous surroundings nestled in the British countryside.

Enjoy exquisite furnishings, roaring log fires, splendid gardens, and a comfortable atmosphere at these magnificently restored houses. Although dinner is not included, our locations pride themselves on their delicious food, good wines and personal service.

Afternoon tea has been a British institution since Anna Maria Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, asked her footman to bring her a pot of tea and light refreshment one afternoon in 1840. The ritual caught on and afternoon tea became the corner stone of high society dining. These days taking tea as a light afternoon meal has become much more accessible, but has not lost a crumb of its charm.

This idyllic retreat makes a perfect gift for someone special. Whether they prefer traditional or contemporary settings, this break provides for both.

This break is a one night stay for two people and includes breakfast and a Traditional Afternoon Tea. Restrictions may apply to certain properties, on specific days of the week and months of the year.

The Links Country Park Hotel, Cromer, Norfolk

Alex from Sales, July 2019

The Links Hotel is set in a stunning area, a stone’s throw from Cromer and the beautiful beach. Upon arrival, the staff were very accommodating in getting me settled in to my room, which was spacious and spotless. The reception staff told me about the local area as I was due to head out, pointing out other areas of interest and what time to come down for breakfast the following morning.
Down the road is the beach, which is accessible via a small path which can be walked or driven down. The beach itself is incredibly clean and accommodates for both sand and stone beach lovers, although further down towards Cromer it does feature more stones. Within the vicinity of the Hotel, there are some fantastic places to enjoy an evening meal and drink. The Village Inn pub features a good array of beers, ales, house wines and a selection of food to go with it.
The Links Hotel was a fantastic setting for an afternoon tea, which hosted a wide variety of cakes, finger sandwiches and lovely warm scones. The food was all fresh and tasted amazing, a definite go-to for all afternoon tea lovers. The pot of tea was wonderful and hot, the milk perfect and cold and my friend had a peppermint tea, which was delightful. Make sure you leave plenty of room as it was very filling.
The room we stayed in was wonderful and very spacious, meaning me and my friend had plenty of room to ditch our stuff as we headed out for the evening. It was one of the most comfy beds to sleep on, but the breakfast was well worth getting out of bed for.
If you are in the mood for some sports and exercise, the golf course behind the hotel is sure to get the circulation going for a small charge, and the tennis court is well maintained to ensure that there is something for everyone. The indoor pool was at a lovely temperature to enjoy a paddle, plus there is a gym free of charge which hosts some great equipment to help burn off the hot breakfast.

Top Tip
Take enough clothes to use all the facilities such as pool, gym and golf course.

We used an Xmas gift from our Daughter and Son in Law, and had a wonderful time. Excellent hotel, attentive staff, and the afternoon tea was something to behold!! Lovely room, with fourposter bed, which we didn't expect!!, and nice views over the lovely gardens, which we explored at length later to walk the enormous tea off!! Great experience all round and thank you one and all. One downside?? Very minor one though. Coming from the south, the satnav finished in the middle of the village, a mile or so from the hotel!! Had to ask at a local shop. Perhaps another sign in the village would help, or maybe I messed up on the settings, who knows?, but a good stay otherwise!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Little Silver Country Hotel, which is in a great location.From the first moment, when we were made very welcome by the owner, all the staff were friendly and helpful. Our spacious room had a comfortable bed and alovely bathroom with thick, white towels. The delightful dining room looked out over a very pretty garden and the food was excellent.

Very friendly hotel owners, reception staff were excellent. Hotel is quite secluded and a little dated but very clean and had lots of character. The cream tea was huge!

I was given the voucher as a present and very much looked forward to using it for a “ladies who take tea” country hotel getaway. The hotel was nice but clearly had no idea what afternoon tea was. 80’s pop music and bland doorstop sandwiches? Plus when we asked to take our scones to our hotel room to finish later we were given just that - the accompaniments (jam, clotted cream, plates, knives) were all removed and the dry scones put in a plastic takeaway container. Overall, very odd. Good voucher which I would recommend, just not sure about the selection of venues. Hopefully, I just chose poorly.

No I do not recommend this product.

I was extremely disappointed that an expensive deal worth £169 was terrible! Got a cream tea as opposed to an afternoon tea, was originally asked to pay a surcharge as a Saturday night, was put in a budget room, was required to pay extra if was to use spa facilities. Was overall very misleading and disappointing!
