"There is a tale to go with every creak of the floorboards at this genial, history-soaked establishment, supposedly the oldest hotel in England," says Lonely Planet magazine of the "grand and elegant" Old Hall Hotel in Buxton. Now £69 per room, this deal includes dinner for two, an award-winning breakfast and a glass of fizz on arrival -- all for 52% less than the regular price.
Stay Sunday-Friday from 1 November-28 February, 2013, and seven days a week in January. In full, you get:
Upgrade to a Classic Double Room for an extra £25 per night, to an Executive Room for £35, or to a Four Poster Room for £50 more.
Built in 1573, the Old Hall Hotel is set in the heart of the Peak District, in the pretty spa town of Buxton. It has welcomed some famous guests during its history -- author Daniel Defoe called it "a very special place" and Mary Queen of Scots stayed here while under house arrest in the 16th century. More recently, the hotel's breakfast won an enjoy England award in 2011.
Buxton is home to a natural warm spring and the location of the one of the UK's first Roman baths. Further afield, explore the nearby Peak District National Park, Sherwood Forest, Bakewell (famous for its tarts) and The Potteries.
