What will you be doing this Betwixmas?

Christmas day is over, all the presents
have been opened and the turkey has been eaten. You have watched so much
“Christmas” TV your eyes are almost square, but your diary for the rest of the
week is still blank. There are so many things a family or couples could do
during this period of time, here are just a few suggestions.


1. Go for a hike:

Britain is host to a number of stunning
National Parks, the Lake District is one that’s renowned for its impressive
scenery, wildlife and cultural heritage. There are 5 different levels of walks
available, so there is a walk for everybody. After a long day walking, what
better way to relax than booking yourself in for a night or two in one our
FIH’s many hotels located in the Lake District.


2. Go Ice Skating at the Eden Project:

Cornwall’s Eden Project is a visitor
attraction made up of biomes, which contain plants from all over the world. Over
the Christmas period, the plants and foliage are set aside to make way for an
indoor ice and a range of different festive activities for all the family to
join in with. Once all the fun on the ice is over, you could extend your
experience by staying in the luxurious Rose In Vale Country House Hotel, which
is less than an hour away.


3. Try Something New:

The Ballathie Country House Hotel has
teamed up with the Scottish Sleddog Academy and is offering a very unique
experience. They offer a choice of Sleddog experiences, from an hour’s ‘taster’
session to a three hour Safari, where you can really get involved, with a hands
on introduction to Mushing. So harness up your own team, stop in the forest for
photo’s and a warming drink, then bring your team of K9 stars homeward bound.
The experience includes an overnight stay in the elegant four-star mansion,
with breakfast.


4. Unwind at a spa:

The Budock Vean Hotel offer a range of
different pamper days which would be perfect to forget all the stresses of
Christmas and get you ready for the New Year. The Natural Health Spa features
Spiezia Organics, a handmade Cornish brand who have created Made for Life. The
Budock Vean also has some great offers on short breaks during Betwixmas.


5. Explore a new place:

The Fishmore Hall, located in Shropshire is
offering short breaks over the “Betwixmas” period. With numerous walking
routes, lots of shopping and plenty of places to eat and drink, Ludlow is a
great getaway destination. The break price includes accommodation, full English
breakfast and one evening meal from the a la carte menu.
