Christmas Gifting; An Overnight Country Escape with Dinner for two with Red Letter Days – Review: November 2019

The Christmas season is nearing, finding unique and personal quality gifts can be a strain, so take the stress out of gifting and letter Red Letter Days do the hard work for you.

The Overnight Country Escape with Dinner for two package is perfectly presented in this Robin Red envelope with gift card, making this a gorgeous gift.

Gift your family, friends and loved ones a lovely Overnight Country Escape with Dinner for two package where they can choose from a whole range of countryside hotel locations.

We decided to escape the hustle and bustle at the Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa which is set inside a beautiful 700-year-old country manor house.

Check into your cosy classic room for a comfortable and snug stay for two.  We got lucky and upgraded to an executive room which included tea & coffee making facilities and reading materials for what to do while visiting Lancashire.

The Bathroom had a stand up sower, separate bathtub and a range of complimentary toiletries.

As guests, there is also access to the onsite Spa Naturel Fitness centre, Ann and her team are super warm, welcoming and wonderful.

There is a 12-metre swimming pool with built in whirlpool Jacuzzi for you to kick back, relax and unwind.

The range of rooms on offer is extensive including Aromatherapy and Steam with experience showers.  Along with Rock, Bio and Laconium Saunas.

There is also a fully equipped gym for you to use too.

Included within your package is a 3-course dinner at the onsite Cameo Restaurant.  Sophie our lovely waitress was a super star!

Dishes included the delightful duck terrine and a delicious cheese board offering.

Mains included fabulous fish and chips along with this huge halloumi super salad.

Desserts on offer included the chocolate fondant and the super tasty sticky toffee pudding.

After a relaxing nights sleep, walk through the building and pass by the beautiful grounds or sit outside and have a read of the morning paper while soaking up the sun.

Breakfast buffet style is bountiful with a whole range of continental and hot offerings.

Amazing Aziz and his team looked after us well throughout our morning, as we chowed down on fabulous fruity options, pastries and porridge.

Hot options such as the full English and vegetarian sausages are on point too.

Before departure have a stroll through the grounds including the courtyard, I’m sure you will be full of smiles after a wonderful break away.

Red Letter Days provide the perfect Christmas gifting opportunity to spoil your friends, family and loved ones to a much deserved break away.

Have a Happy Christmas!

Thank you for reading 😊

  1. My wife and I stopped buying gifts for each other years ago and instead do something like this every year. A nice weekend getaway or a broadway show. An experience. This looks amazing. The room and the food plus a spa and fitness center. What more would you need? I had never heard of Red Letter Days but just went on the site and they have great ideas. Bookmarked!

    I love gifting experiences as it really gives you time with loved ones to connect. My best friend and I always do a spa day as our Christmas gifts to each other.

  6. What a wonderful idea for a gift! The hotel looks absolutely stunning and luxurious (definitely something I could get on board with, maybe I will gift this to myself! lol) and my mouth was watering at the dining photos! All around looks like an amazing experience.
