Menzies Flitwick Manor
Woburn Safari Park is where kings and queens of the jungle call home—a place where they are fed, pampered, and stay warm. If the bitterly cold urban jungle has become a bit too wild, and you fancy a little cosy relaxation of your own then Menzies Flitwick Manor extend a toasty welcome. An overnight retreat for two people is yours for £139 (up to a £295 value).
The only roar you'll hear on arrival is from the crackling log fire in the foyer as you sip your welcome glass of Prosecco. Head up to your Standard Room to discover the treats waiting within—homemade cookies, fresh fruit, and luxurious robes and slippers. The Georgian manor itself sits in four-and-a-half acres of tranquil gardens and wooded parkland—stunning with a canvas of Autumn colours. Elegantly furnished with fine antiques and stunning period features, the hotel offers a tempting country retreat. You won't want to rise early on your final morning so we've also included a late 12 p.m. checkout.
Appetite of a lion? The hotel's talented chefs have produced an exciting menu using fine local ingredients. You'll discover why the restaurant bagged a coveted AA Rosette when you sit down for the three-course table d'hôte dinner included with this Escape. Slow down the pace in the afternoon with a cream tea to satiate any sweet cravings you might've developed. You'll want to start off your local discovery on a full stomach so make the most of a hearty breakfast served up in the morning.
Wildlife fans will be keen to make a beeline for Woburn Abbey and Safari Park where exciting beasts roam free, or those with a taste for heights and adventure may want to monkey around at Go Ape!—an exciting high-rope adventure park. Alternatively, find intrigue at Bletchley Park, the estate that was the home of British code breaking during WWII. The hotel is conveniently located just a short drive from Flitwick Railway station which will have you in London in around 35 minutes should you fancy a sojourn to the capital.
Guests looking for a little something extra can upgrade to Four-Poster or other Superior rooms for just £25 (subject to availability). This hotel has availability seven days a week until February.
