Mere Golf Resort & Spa

1. Pampering Days

After all the shopping that you did for Christmas, you are bound to be needing a little bit of me-time, so why not seek sanctuary in the boutique spa at the Chester Grosvenor Hotel. Treat yourself to two 30 minute treatments, (choose from a back massage, facial, mini manicure or mini pedicure), enjoy 60 minutes use of the Thermal Suite and a delicious one course lunch with a glass of wine for just £70pp. On 6th January 2020, the new Spa opened at Carden Park Estate, where you can experience a carefully curated range of treatments using natural botanicals, unwind in the one of the themed relaxation rooms, sip Champagne in the beauty bar or enjoy a light meal in the spa restaurant. Alternatively find your ideal spa break here.

3. Get Out And About

Or perhaps pampering and relaxation just doesn’t hit the spot, maybe you’d like to get out and about to the Cheshire plains. Explore the Sandstone Ridge which covers 230 sq km of landscape between Frodsham and Malpas. The ridge is rich in history and wildlife, so why not get your hiking boots on and experience the picturesque views of Cheshire. Whether you are simply looking for a quiet stroll out in the country or you want to challenge yourself and walk the full length of the 55km trail - there is a walk for everybody.

4. Hibernate Away From Home

Fancy taking your loved ones off for a weekend away somewhere? Find a lovely cottage and have a break from all the madness after the festive period. There is plenty to see and do if you want to go and explore - or you could just lounge around in your pyjamas with a hot chocolate. If you need a well deserved rest after hosting the family for Christmas, why not book a luxurious stay at the Chester Grosvenor Hotel, situated in the heart of Chester with its award winning, Michellin star restaurant and individually designed rooms, its the perfect place to hide away from home and recharge your batteries.

5. Shop the January Sales

Maybe you don’t have the January blues and shopping for Christmas just wasn’t enough. Take a trip to Chester and make a day of it with the vast range of eateries in the city centre to suit every tastebud. Snap up some brilliant bargains at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks with up to 60% off a great range of designer brands, the perfect opportunity to refresh your wardrobe! Time for New Year, New You!

6. Eat Yourself Happy!

The most important part of a fresh start to the new year is a happy tummy. Head to The Pheasant Inn, an award winning inn, for good, honest wholesome food or visit the Bear's Paw, a characterful luxury country inn, offering gastro pub style food using local and seasonal produce. Bring your canine friends to the Fishpool Inn, where you will experience log fires and a warm welcome in unique, ambient surroundings. Indulge in sumptuous sparkling afternoon tea (including prosecco) at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa, a real indulgent treat!

6. Soak up some Culture

Don't miss Matisse: Drawing with Scissors at the Lady Lever Art Gallery until 15 March 2020 on loan from the Hayward Gallery at Southbank Centre. Enjoy the celebrated cut-outs produced by the famous French painter, sculptor and designer which became the final triumph of his career.
