Why We Love This Deal

On the Hertfordshire/Essex border, the manor of Down Hall is believed to have existed in the 10th century during the reign of Edward the Confessor. A country mansion hotel since 1986, the historic Down Hall Hotel & Spa is spread across a 110-acre estate and features an "exquisite exterior matched by the elegant interior" (The Daily Telegraph) — snag an overnight B&B getaway here for £139 with this deal.

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Anglo Saxon records show that Down Hall was a well-established Saxon settlement and one of ten Medieval manors in the parish of Hatfield. Through the centuries it has been a country home, a hospital, and a boarding school, before being turned into a hotel in 1986
  • The hotel's Garden Room restaurant has a "vibe reminiscent of an upmarket French brasserie" (The AA) and serves contemporary, seasonal dishes. There is also the intimate Fox Bar to kick back with a tipple and bar bites
  • The choice of amenities at Down Hall makes for a relaxing stay without having to venture far. The use of the tennis courts, Padel tennis court, gym, sauna, steam room, giant chess set, and croquet, is complimentary, while a supplement applies to use the Eden Spa (advance bookings are recommended)
  • The estate is about 30 miles from central London, ideal for a mini break. Harlow and Bishop's Stortford train stations are a 20-minute drive away
  • Stuck for Christmas gift ideas? Give a dining, spa, activity, theatre, or hotel experience, and create a memory
