We love a couple of country hotels owned by the same person:
The Black Lion at Long Melford
Ravenwood Hall between Newmarket and Bury St. Edumunds along the A14
They have a really good Sunday special running right now. Apporx £100 total for 2 people, dinner, b&b. I am taking annual leave for the 1st two weeks in June to work on this site and generally chill. But we are taking one night away for this offer while the dogs guard the house.
We think this is very good value.

Wow makes our local hotel sound cheap £50/£55 for dinner b&B pity it needs a plane to get here
Thanks, TA. It is just so nice to have something to look forward to. I think that is more than half the pleasure of an planned break. It's funny (not really) how times have changed, We always prefer short breaks, kike 4 days, compared with a fortnight abroad. We have really enjoyed short city breaks in the past like Rome, Milan, Lisbon . .
Not to be this year. But just booking even a one night break is brilliant for us. 30 days of anticipation!
BTW, Danuta, that deal works out at £50 per person. Are you saying that your hotel does approx £25 per person for a similar deal?

I was getting worried then Danuta and I definitely haven't been on the
I still like to get away for a longer break but I don't do hotels and the like, I prefer to go to someone's house and stay there. I have stayed in homes in Brazil, Cyprus, Colorado (not just my own), England, Latvia, and Scotland. Thinking back I think our unexpected carvan holiday in a large mobile home had to be my favourite, it was such a relaxing time. Hotels are great in that you don't have to think about breakfast etc but the costs of eating out during the day are a nightmare, the kitchens in the American motels are therefore a boon to me.
If you have youngish kids the breakfast at premier inn is also very good at the moment. We stayed in one during our stay in th uk recently. As Andy was working I dropped him off at some ungodly hour, then decided to take the kids for a breakfast at the hotel. I knew kids could eat free, but assumed it was I child, one adult. However it was infact 2 children free per adult, children being up to 15 (I think); anyway the upshot was that all three of us ate an enormous breakfast (no lunch that day!!) for the princely sum of 7.25!!
TA - why is it that the nice things happen only if you have children ...... ?
I 'borrowed' a friend's daughter to go to a workshop (big kid that I am!) to make magic spellbooks, and wands and other similar things - problem was the age group was 5 - 7 years only, and had to be accompanied by an adult.
I gratefully filled in as the 'adult' - well, that's what I told them, anyway.

I remember my Mum, my sister and I borrowed a 3 year old to go and see Bambi many moons ago, we didn't feel we could go in without a little one and his older sister and mother needed a break
