Look what I found! A historic stay for anyone who wants to give their holiday a bit of Downton feeling… Found an offer on Travelbird.co.uk that lets you stay in Victorian Mellington Hall (80% on Tripadvisor) which has earned this year’s Certificate of Excellence. The estate is set on 280 acres of wonderful gardens. Take a walk along the banks of the beautiful Rhododendrons, take a blanket with you, pick a quiet and sunny spot and enjoy the tranquillity of this magical place. The park even has a ‘lovers walk’, a path that leads you through ancient trees and where many visitors have already engraved their happy initials into the bark. After a nice walk you can enjoy a superb lunch at the hotel and maybe go for a trip to a museum, the famous Castle Powis or you even visit one of the British isles. The place is absolutely perfect if you like to go an mini honeymoon, or even celebrate your wedding there. Hard to find a more romantic place…

The hotel will welcome you with a glass of champagne and lead you to one of the individually designed Executive Rooms. They have an en-suite bathroom, are equipped with wireless, a TV and DVD player as well as luxury linens and comfy bathrobes. In the morning breakfast awaits you to give you the energy for the day. If you like you can also dine at the hotel in the evening. It features four distinctive dining rooms from which you can choose, but all of them serve exceptionally high class cuisine. So look forward to spoiling your taste buds!

You have the option of flying to Birmingham or take the ferry to Holyhead. I would recommend a car as well to keep you flexible. Details below!
