The Priory Inn - Great British Mini Summer Break
The Priory Inn offers a Great British Mini Summer Break for the whole family - that won't break the bank!
Escape to The Priory Inn in The Cotswolds for 2 nights, get the third night free and locally sourced picnics for 2 days thrown in! The kids can cycle to the beach and see white rhino!
The Priory Inn, Tetbury, selected by The Good Hotel Guide Editor as being one of the top10 child-friendly hotels in the UK is offering 3 nights for the price of 2 throughout the summer for families looking for an exceptional value and exciting break away from home.
When the long summer holidays finally kick in, The Priory Inn is offering 3 nights for the price of 2 for all families of four staying in their family suite. And thrown in are two action-packed days in the Cotswolds that the whole family can enjoy together with delicious locally sourced picnic lunches provided by The Priory Inn!
Just 10 minutes from Tetbury is The Cotswold Water Park with 140 lakes (50% larger than the Norfolk Broads). The Priory Inn mini-break includes cycle hire for a day (bike seats, trailers and tag-alongs available) which means the whole family can enjoy a leisurely ride around the local lakes, stopping off for coffee, ice-creams and play at the lake-side playgrounds. And don’t forget the bucket and spade and swimsuit as the Country Park has a gently shelving sandy beach. If a more adventurous ride is required, there is an “all terrain cycle route” which takes you out and about in the Cotswolds, along bridle-paths, between lakes and alongside the River Thames.
Day 2 offers the family a pass to The Cotswold Wildlife Park. Just outside Burford (45 mins drive) is 160 acres of beautiful parkland and gardens with enough to keep everyone busy for more than a day! White rhino, zebra, big cats, monkeys and penguin are all there as well as a narrow gauge railway that chugs you around the landscaped gardens and a “good for all ages” adventure playground. There are plenty of good picnic spots to enjoy The Priory Inn's lunch.
As the Priory Inn is known for its high quality local food and drink, and family-friendly focus, it is the perfect place to enjoy a great meal before turning in for a good night's sleep. Even the fussiest eaters find something they fancy on the home-cooked kids' menu or pizza menu – they can even design their own pizza at the table and watch it sizzle in the wood-fired oven. And when the little ones are tucked-up in bed, mum and dad can enjoy dinner together in the popular restaurant's 30 Mile Food Zone* as monitors work from the bedrooms to the restaurant.
So for a great family mini-summer break (that doesn’t break the bank), The Priory Inn offers a winning combination. The privately owned hotel has won numerous awards over the past 5 years and owners Tanya and Dave Kelly who have two young children themselves, know the pressures of finding somewhere to stay that ticks all the crucial boxes.
The management team behind The Priory boasts years of hospitality experience between them, working in and launching high profile hotel and restaurant establishments in New York, London and Hertfordshire.
The Priory Inn is situated in Tetbury, a beautiful market town in the heart of the Cotswolds which is one of the most important antiques centres in the UK. It is 2 miles from the Royal home of Highgrove. The hotel has 14 ensuite contemporary bedrooms.
* The 30 Mile Food Zone was launched by The Priory Inn in November 2008 and derives from their commitment to local food and drink. They buy almost 90% of their food from within a 30 mile radius of Tetbury.
