Hadrian’s Wall and Matfen Hall Country House Hotel have combined their efforts to come up with something that should lighten up the shorter days between October and March* – a Midweek Short Break that combines exercise and relaxation.
Your getaway from the norm starts by settling in for the first of your two nights at a converted stately home just off the Wall, in the tranquil setting of the Northumbrian countryside. Once there, if you prefer something beyond the luxurious comfort of your bedroom or sitting by the log fire in the drawing room, you can either burn up the calories in the ‘Fitness Suite’, or take a more sedate swim in the pool, or you can chill out with a ‘Fire & Ice’ experience - a combination of herbal sauna, crystal steam room, ice fountain, tropical feature shower and salt grotto.
Whichever facilities you choose to take advantage of, there’s a three-course dinner to help stock up the energy for your Safari Tour and another to help you recover on your return.
Your daytime excursion on an exclusive Safari Tour with renowned Local Guide Gary Reed, is tailored to your interests and walking preferences, with the sites of interest and walking routes, being yours to choose from. Traversing the country lanes and tracks next to Hadrian’s Wall by way of an expedition-equipped Land Rover, for a series of short walks on, along and off the Wall, you can breathe in the crisp fresh air, whilst looking forward to a soak in the spa whirlpool before dinner.
* This unique Special Offer is designed as an Autumn / Winter / Early Spring Midweek Short Break (between Sunday and Thursday - subject to availability of Guide & Accommodation) and only available between October and March.
