If you’re looking for a place to get away from it all, then there are few destinations more suitable than Cheshire.It’s a county that offers a perfect blend of countryside seclusion, without being too far out of the way; if you’re based in Liverpool Manchester, or any place nearby, then you’ll be able to reach it without too much trouble – but even if you’re travelling from further afield, high-quality hotels like Carden Park in Cheshire.It’s a place that’s packed with things to do – and it’s just a short trip away from all of the other attractions that the county has to offer.Let’s take a look through some of the things one might get up to during a visit.
What better way is there to relax than with the help of a spa?In the hotel’s spa facility you’ll be able to walk around corridors, lit by aromatic candles that’ll provide just the setting you need to properly unwind.There are a raft of treatment options available – so if you’d like, you can indulge yourself and several friends in a spa treatment.If you’ve got a wedding on the horizon, a spa break will work well as part of a hen (or indeed, stag) party.
Carden Park is home to the largest commercial vineyard in Cheshire.Most the vines here were planted in 1988, but over the subsequent years, the enterprise hell into decline.That decline, however, looks set to be reversed thanks to the efforts of the hotel’s staff.In 2008, 4,000 vines were reinstated, and a great deal of time and energy has been spent in getting them back to their former glory.
These efforts have proven more than worthwhile.The vineyard is now home to two different varieties of grape:Seyval Blanc and Pinot Noir.They’re harvested by the team in late October, and put through a meticulous fermentation process to produce a sparkling white wine known as Carden Old Gold.
The three acres of vines are capable of producing 6,000 bottles of wine each year.You’ll be able to purchase it in each of the restaurants and bars in the hotel – and you might even decide to take some of it home and enjoy later on!
If you’re looking to enjoy a round of golf, then Carden Park is undoubtedly among the best places in the county to do it.The park is home to not one, but two separate golf courses:the Cheshire and the Nicklaus.Either of these two courses will make for a great place to spend your leisure time – and if you’re thinking about holding a corporate getaway, they’re also a great place to get your workforce away from the grindstone.
Of course, no getaway would be up to much if it wasn’t accompanied by high-quality food and drink.Fortunately, you’ll be able to secure either on the grounds via the quartet of eating and drinking facilities – two bars and two restaurants.You’ll find foods to suit all palates here – as well as wine that’s been produced on the hotel grounds!
If you’re looking at hosting a function in the near future, then Carden Park has the facilities to accommodate everything from corporate meetings to Christmas parties.It’s also a fantastic Cheshire wedding venue, making a great place for couples to finally tie the knot.If you’re looking to secure catering for your nuptials, then it’s a great solution, too – as you’ll have ample access to the hotel’s stockpile of wine.
If you’re looking to remain a little bit more active during your stay, then you’ll be pleased to learn that there are ample opportunities to do so.As well as the aforementioned golf courses, you’ll find plenty of parkland in which to take a stroll, and copious gym facilities so that you can stay on top of your fitness during your retreat.Of course, the crown jewel of any fitness facility is a fully-functioning swimming pool, and you’ll find just such a thing in the hotel.Perform a few strokes before bedtime and you’re sure to feel refreshed when you eventually emerge in the morning, to enjoy breakfast.
Finally, it’s worth mentioning a facility that isn’t often attached to a hotel: the on-site hairdresser.They offer a variety of services for both men and women, and a right next to the spa.If you’re getting married, you’ll want to give them a call in advance in order to get your hair looking immaculate for the big day itself.
