Beat the Heat with Hotel Breaks that have Air-Con and a Pool
Posted on July 01, 2015 by Laura
With parts of the UK topping 35 degrees today (Wednesday) and with a humid weekend on the way, many of us will be looking for a last minute getaway to escape the oppressive heat.
Many peoples’ first thoughts will be to head to Britain’s coasts for a dip in Britain’s coastal waters.
However, whilst paddling in Britain’s seas is undeniably refreshing, those of us planning trips away this weekend might do better paying more attention to how well our accommodation’s facilities will keep us cool in this very un-British heat. That’s because no dip in a ‘nippy’ ocean is going to make up for a bad night’s sleep stuck in a room that’s more akin to a sauna because there’s no air-con and the windows only open as wide as a gnats knee!
Alongside air-con as a ‘must-have’ for getaways this weekend is getting a place with a pool. With a pool at your disposal you have an easy way to cool off. And what’s more you don’t have to do that weird dance where you try and change into your ‘cozzie’ in the middle of the beach with only a sandy towel to protect your modesty.
What about heading for the leafy shade of a country house and soaking up the history instead of the UV?
We suggest that you look at our 4 star Chatsworth House Break. As well as air-con and a hotel pool, the deal includes tickets to Chatsworth House and Gardens so you can choose either to enjoy the sunshine in the House’s stunning gardens or take a break from the heat wandering round the cool rooms of this most majestic of grand English houses. Other added extras in this deal include a two course evening meal each night and breakfast.
Our Warwickshire 4 star Spa Retreat break is based at the Best Western Plus Windmill Village Hotel which boasts both a swimming pool and air con in all guest rooms. Located in a picturesque and secluded part of the West Midlands’ countryside on the outskirts of Coventry, the break also includes a free 25 minute spa treatment and full English breakfast.
Another luxury spa break, but this time in the Wiltshire village of South Marston, is our next deal with the magic combo of pool and air-con. This two night deal staying in the modern and award-winning Mercure Swindon Hotel, also includes a three course dinner, bed and breakfast and full use of the spa facilities throughout your stay.
Situated in the unspoilt hamlet of Thornton Hough but within easy striking distance of Liverpool, our 4 star spa retreat is based at the Thornton Hall Hotel. As well as a pool and air-con, the hotel boasts a full spa facility. Our deal includes full English breakfast, three course dinner, all use of the spa facilities and an exclusive hair treatment.
