A jaunt to an Irish castle, seven courses of 2-AA-Rosette-awarded dinner, a Bond Street stay that leaves enough for Christmas shopping and a week in Lapland for the same price as some day trips to Father Christmas's home all caught my eye this week.
£95 -- Condé Nast-Rated Irish Castle Escape for 2, Reg £252
Our subscribers love castle hotels and this one is a cut above – a 5-star Irish retreat dating back to the 15th century. It’s won a stack of accolades from the likes of Condé Nast Traveller and the World Luxury Hotel Awards. This package includes €50 credit to spend on food, drinks or spa treatments and is worth over £250 – plus, it’s available for weekend dates.
£119 -- Luxury London Mayfair Stay w/Extras, Save up to 80%
A saving of 80% sounds ridiculous, but rooms at this 5-star Bond Street hotel genuinely go for as much as £599 if you book direct with the hotel over the travel period. It’s the perfect London hideaway for a luxury Christmas shopping or January sales break on a budget.
£139 -- Award-Winning Norfolk Stay w/7-Course Tasting Dinner
This gorgeous boutique hotel is set in a Victorian farmhouse overlooking the Norfolk coast. For £139, the deal includes accommodation for two, afternoon tea and a 7-course tasting menu dinner at the hotel’s 2-AA-Rosette restaurant – a package that would normally set you back £230.
