Dear Best Loved Member
Tuesday, 8th December 2009

It's dark when you wake up in the morning, dark when you get out of the office in the evening and the mercury drops lower and lower every day. Yes, winter is indeed upon us but that doesn't mean it's time to hibernate. Turn those winter chills into winter thrills - and save a quid or two while you're at it - with a Best Loved winter getaway.

Escape the stress, the hype and the torpor to your very own historic inn, mansion or even a castle, surrounded by breathtaking woodlands, rivers, lakes, mountains and more. Recharge your batteries for the year ahead with some quintessential country pursuits. And don't forget to check out our exceptional deals on Christmas and New Year's Eve breaks. Now is the perfect time to pick up a great festive escape for a bargain price.

Best wishes,
