If you are looking for somewhere quiet in stunning countryside where you can stay for a few days, park granny in confidence, or just enjoy Sunday afternoon tea with a particular friend, Hellidon Lakes Golf and Spa Hotel on the Northamptonshire /Warwickshire borders is a hidden gem.
It is locally one of the best kept secrets for getting away from it all. It is well known by people from outside the area: by followers of Formula One racing (Silverstone is just down the road), knowledgeable golfers, and those people who like to keep the best places to chill out to themselves!
Which is why we are delighted that owners QHotels have generously provided a two night dinner, bed and breakfast stay for our winners of the Citizen of the Year and Young Citizen of the Year. It is their way of giving something back to the community in which they operate and employ their staff.
The hotel has a reputation for being friendly and welcoming to everyone but do not be surprised if you find yourselves rubbing shoulders with the odd racing driver who has been testing, or even owners of horses racing at Towcester. It is not too celebrity conscious or posh – just a nice place to be!
Hellidon Lakes is set in 220 delightfully peaceful acres, it has superb leisure and spa facilities, eight lakes, fishing, a 27 hole golf course, four lane ten- pin bowling alley and all the facilities associated with a four star country hotel.
It is also favoured by busy people organizing conferences and meeting because it is as a place they can trust, by wedding planners, and families celebrating birthdays and anniversaries.
And if all this sounds too good to be true, take a trip out there, judge for yourself, and no doubt, you will become one of those people keeping the location to yourself. See the web-site for details or phone 01327:262550 quoting Brakes Trust.
