Often quieter than the summer school holidays, October half-term is the perfect time to enjoy a family break in the countryside before the British winter takes full hold. This year, create memories that will last a lifetime by treating the kids to a fun-filled getaway in the luxury and comfort of a brand new self-catering Stable Suite at Chesters Stables.
Chesters Stables offers the perfect home away from home for the whole family, along with all the luxury trimmings that make a holiday the dream break it should be. With seven luxurious 1-4 bedroomed Stable Suites to choose from, each boasting spacious living areas, underfloor heating and soft king-sized beds, we have something to suit families of all sizes and ages this half-term.
The estate’s 100 acres of beautiful private grounds are guaranteed to capture the hearts of all generations, encouraging games of hide and seek for younger guests while offering the perfect rural setting for grownups looking to escape the stresses of everyday life. Throughout your stay, you can take advantage of a complimentary shuttle to the family-run Walwick Hall Hotel, where a restaurant, outdoor playing area and swimming pool (complete with a bar and luxurious Spa for the adults) await. But if the hotel’s facilities are not enough to keep everyone entertained for the week, there are plenty of attractions and activities nearby that will.
The beautiful region of Northumberland is an adventurer’s playground with plenty for all ages to enjoy. Watch the colours of the Autumn leaves turn golden on a family bike ride in our local countryside, stroll down to Hexham to discover the beautiful Abbey and Old Gaol, or venture out further afield to explore Kielder Forest and Water Park. Or why not simply pack a picnic and snuggly blanket and head out to Northumberland National Park, where you can immerse yourselves in the fascinating history of Hadrian’s Wall. As the evenings come around, head back to your luxurious Stable Suite to enjoy spectacular Autumnal sunsets through the floor-to-ceiling windows, board games in front of the wood-burning fire and warming mugs of hot chocolate in your Stable Suite’s spacious luxury dining area.
As busy as they can be, we think that family getaways should be just as relaxing and enjoyable as any other holiday. That’s why we offer a range of parent-friendly dining options for you to choose from during your stay. For nights you don’t want to cook but do want to stay in together, we can arrange for our dedicated chefs to prepare fresh, seasonal meals for your family, delivering them straight to your Stable Suite with simple heating instructions. Or perhaps you’d rather one of our chefs cooked for you in the privacy and comfort of your Stable Suite? No matter what your family’s needs, we’re here to guarantee you the most hassle-free break possible so you can focus on enjoying your perfect countryside holiday, just the way you should.
