Inn Places: Festive Escapes

If you are wondering what to do in that week between Christmas and New Year, then book an overnight escape away at a fantastic inn – pack your boots, explore the local footpaths, then relax with the papers and your favourite tipple by the roaring fire before tucking into a seasonal supper and heading upstairs to a very special room. Bliss – the perfect tonic before the New Year celebrations…!
