Bite 2014 the Cotswold Food Festival is supported by Bespoke Hotels

Bite-2014-sponsored-by-Bespoke-hotelsIt’s all in the name, really. Bite 2014, sponsored by Bespoke Hotels, has everything you could possibly want to get your teeth into. It’s all coming to the Cotswolds between 1st and 9th February 2014: breakfasts, brunches, lunches, teas & dinners, pop-up restaurants, cocktails and fine wines, masterclasses, talks and tastings, an Open Kitchen trail, meet the chef events and book signings, food fairs and farmers’ markets sponsored by Bespoke Hotels.
BITE 2014 is a can’t miss event for all food lovers. To register for their newsletter and for further booking details visit the Bespoke Hotels’ web site here.

For those who don’t know the Cotswolds, it’s one of England’s favourite destinations, famous for hundreds of honey-colour limestone villages surrounded by rolling hills and winding country lanes.

Bite 2014, sponsored by Bespoke Hotels, is just one the events taking place here amidst the fabulous Cotswolds hotels and beautiful scenery.  Lively cultural events, a year round season of sporting events and festivals – even the range of individual, quirky shops here – have all combined to ensure repeat visitors are in plentiful supply. For lovers of the quaint and rustic, the Cotswolds is a delight – full of experiences, inspiration and shops that you just can’t find anywhere else.

Winter in the Cotswolds

Winter in the Cotswolds offers long walks in the spectacular, unspoiled countryside, followed of course by cosy hotels, pubs and tea rooms dotted around the villages and towns. Perhaps visit the Capital of the Cotswolds, Cirencester, or maybe Stow on the Wold to admire the views from its hill top location. But that’s not to say the smaller towns and villages don’t have much to offer. The Slaughters, Broad Campden, Chalford, Bibury, Longborough and many, many more each have a unique character and we’d recommend spending a day or two exploring them at your leisure.

Cotswold House Hotel

Take Chipping Campden, for example. Here Bespoke Hotels can offer you two choices – The Cotswold House Hotel and the Noel Arms – both primary venues for Bite 2014. The village will appeal to discerning travellers visiting the Cotswolds in search of tranquility, sublime comfort, exceptional food, and a stunning spa.  The contemporary style makes Bespoke Hotels’ Cotswold House and Spa one of the most admired boutique hotels in the region, as well as an award winning retreat for the therapeutically-minded.

Across the high street, The Noel Arms Hotel  is one of the oldest Cotswold inns. It’s a building steeped in history. They even say Charles II stayed here during the English Civil War! When staying at the Noel Arms, be sure not to miss trying one of chef Indunil’s famous curries – so good that he is the current holder of the Best Pub Curry Chef Award at the Great British Pub Food Awards! Additionally, as befits  Bespoke Hotels , both these properties give ample opportunity for you to put your feet up in front of the log fire, read the papers and treat yourself to a Bite 2014 Event.

BITE 2014 Pop-Up Masterclass Theatre

In partnership with Bower Willis Designs, Bespoke Hotels will transform the Dining Room at The Cotswold House Hotel into a BITE 2014 Pop Up Masterclass Theatre, showcasing a whole host of skills giving you the chance to learn at the hands of the experts.

No matter which Bite 2014 events attract you, a stay at one of Bespoke Hotels’ Cotswold hotels is be a must.  To book your accommodation, click here and for more information on Bite 2014, click here.

How Bespoke Golf Hotels Look after Your Golf Clubs

Carnoustie Golf Hotel

One of the reasons that many people choose one of the 10 Bespoke golf hotels rather than simply a hotel near a golf course is because of the time and effort that the hotel employees put into looking after your golf clubs and all of your sporting needs.

From the moment you arrive at your chosen Bespoke golf hotel, the employees will be expecting you to get out of your car with a shiny set of clubs. They know you will wish you clubs to be treated cautiously and carefully as they are transported either to your room or to a specific locker so that they can remain safe until you play. Here at Bespoke we understand that, over the course of time, a golfer and their clubs become one and fit perfectly, which is why they need to be treated with exceptional care.
Bespoke Golf Hotels are Extraordinary

golf-hotelsFor players, there is an extreme convenience in choosing Bespoke golf hotels. The hotel will be right alongside your chosen golf course and your room may even overlook greens, tees and fairways. When booking into one of the 10 Bespoke Golf hotels, guests will also be able to clarify tee times and availability.

Being able to walk the short distance from your accommodation to the first tee allows a golfer quick and easy access to the Bespoke Golf Hotel’s course without wasting any time. Clubs are always available so that after satisfying 18 holes in the morning, you can easily choose to add another nine in the afternoon, or the early evening during the summer period.

The 19th Hole

19th-hole-golf-hotelsGolfers often joke about their plans to reach the 19th hole after the day’s play. The 19th is where energy and celebration in the form of food and drink can be found. When you choose one of 10 Bespoke Golf hotels attached to courses across the country, you can rest assured that the standard of fare will be very high because the hotel will not just be feeding you after one round of golf; they will be providing for all of your needs for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Booking is Easy

By choosing to pay and stay at Bespoke golf hotels, you are removing the need to make reservations and cross your fingers that everything works seamlessly. Placing your trust in a facility that understands how to look after your clubs and have them available when you call will ensure your requirements as a player are met.

Boutique Hotels Offer Travellers Understated Luxury

Travellers who want to experience an elegant getaway away from the beaten track, without having to rely on the larger well-known hotels, should look for destination boutique hotels. These have become known as the antithesis of the large chain hotels that all seem to offer the same expected amenities and similar room setups. The attraction of a boutique hotel is that it allows you to experience a destination in a unique setting.

Some hotels can appear very basic and nondescript from the outside, only for the interior to wow you with its luxurious and elegant appearance. Take the Grosvenor Hotel in Shaftesbury, for example. It offers its own restaurant with a centrepiece pizza and bread oven, as well as a bar. Others, depending on the speciality services of the hotel, offer music, dancing, spa services, or peaceful landscaping that inspires you to kick back and escape it all.

What Makes Boutique Hotels Unique?

Every hotel is different, and when it comes to finding the best room for your travels the combination of luxury and quirkiness make boutique locations different from all other hotel experiences. The Grosvenor is located in the hustle and bustle of the historic market town of Shaftesbury. The frontage is steeped in this historic tradition, but once inside you’re transported to a chic world of fun and relaxation.

Other boutique properties are set apart from the business of the city and located in a more serene environment. These luxurious hotels offer picturesque surroundings of gardens and rolling hills, whilst simultaneously providing excellent, personal service unlike that which you experience in a large chain. These hotels may be venerable old homes that have been refurbished into hotels, but the staff strive to transport you to another era during your stay.

Enjoy the Same Amenities with Extra Perks

Boutique hotels
often offer similar amenities to larger chain hotels. Your hotel may have a pool, gym, and complimentary coffee and tea in your room. The perks of staying at these hotels are the settings and the personal service that’s often not in place when staying at larger hotels. The surroundings of most of these luxurious hotels also make them special. Country hotels are often set on acreage that’s landscaped with mature trees and flowers, sculpted to meld with a traditional ascetic that’s nigh on inimitable.

At the Grosvenor you’ll be able to take advantage of a boutique hotel in a historic, beautiful town. But if you want something even more serene, there are plenty of these hotels set amongst the lush countryside as well.

Plan a Trip with Bespoke Hotel Golf Breaks

A holiday away with like-minded people is a great way to bond with your friends or family. Whether you want to spend some time with pals, or get to know your new son-in-law a little better, there’s no better way to bond with them than to plan a golf holiday. Golf is synonymous with walking and talking. It’s a leisurely pastime that’s been enjoyed for centuries and Bespoke Golf hotels cater to golf fanatics from all over the world by providing a luxurious retreat that centres around the sport.

Choosing the Right Bespoke Hotel for Your Golf Trip

Many of Bespoke’s 10 Golf hotels cater both to the golf fanatic and anyone who may be travelling with them and keen to unwind away from the course, so it’s not uncommon to find a combination of spa and golf hotels available. These combination hotels offer exceptional experiences out on the course, while also providing a number of decadent spa treatments such as massages, facials, pedicures, and manicures.

When researching golf hotels, choose one based on the courses you’d like to play with your friends, like the famous Open Championship course of Carnoustie. Most golfers have a course they’ve always dreamed of setting foot on, and the Carnoustie hotel can make that dream a reality. However, that’s far from the only string to Bespoke’s bow, and many of their hotels boast their own beautiful courses with challenging holes and histories of hosting championship games.

Golf Packages

Just because you’re travelling with a group of friends doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of Bespoke hotel special offers. Our special rates often apply to rooms with one king or two double beds. If you’re a group of four, you can opt for two rooms so everyone can take advantage of the deal.

The price of golf packages usually includes the fees to play on one or more courses, breakfast at the hotel, prearranged tee times, caddies, and often the cost of dinner for one night during your stay. Each hotel’s package is different, and prices are seasonal, so it’s best to ask about different options when you book your trip.

Take in Area Attractions

As will doubtless be a huge relief to some, a golfing break doesn’t have to centre around golf the entire time, although don’t be surprised if you stay fairly close to your favourite course during the trip. Golf hotels are usually close enough to city centres or cultural areas that you can spend a day exploring the local town and get away from the greens by taking a look around other notable attractions.

Ultimately, no matter how you spend your golf holiday with your friends, at the end of the day you’re sure to forge bonds and create memories. To book your golf break all you need to do is check out our current range of special golf holiday offers by clicking here.
