Best Loved Hotels

The weather is getting cooler and summer holidays seem long-gone yet Christmas still seems so far away - so what better tonic than a Best Loved autumn break? This week we present some first rate autumn escapes from a Cornish smuggler's cove up to a whisky retreat on the Moray Firth.

We're also pleased a welcome a new Best Loved hotel, Heacham Manor in Norfolk, and to give you the chance to win a 2 night stay at the sublime Ashdown Park in Sussex.


Congratulations to last week's competition winner, John Griffith from London who won two nights B&B for two plus dinner on one of the nights at Luton Hoo Hotel in Bedfordshire - a luxurious 5-star country house hotel with an 18 hole, Par 73 Championship golf course, situated on a 1,065 acres estate just north of London.
