Gold and ruby: DoubleTree by Hilton autumn walk packages

Adam Lowe

Autumn turns our treasured woodlands into gorgeous wonderlands dripping with gold and ruby. To celebrate the beauty of the British Isles, DoubleTree by Hilton has put together a range of bespoke packages for nature-lovers who want to pamper themselves in the evening and explore the wilderness during the day.

Chester – Stay and Dine package from £120

This elegantly restored Grade II-listed manor house is secreted away on 12 acres of stunning grounds. With 140 fine bedrooms, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa Chester is ideally situated to the picaresque Brook Valley -which is just a 30-minute drive away. Visitors can explore the Fords Rough, an area of ancient semi-natural woodland. There’s also the Dingle in the Woodland Trust’s Lumb Brook Valley, which has a mix of conifers and broadleaved trees.

The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa Chester has a fabulous ‘Stay and Dine’ package, which includes an overnight stay in a King Guest room, a three-course dinner at the Hotel’s Brasserie and breakfast for two – all from just £120 per couple. Inclusive access to the spa is a nice little perk which will allow you to put up your feet and find your own inner zen after a day’s exploring. To book, call 01244 408 800.

The hotel is also close to a number of quirky shops and boutiques, as well as restaurants and bars.

To celebrate the hotel’s opening, guests who are signed up to the hotel’s rewards programme will receive 1,000 additional HHonors points for staying for two nights or more.
