Dear Best Loved Member
Tuesday, 9th March 2010

So, exactly when does spring begin? While the Met Office tells us that climatologically speaking, spring arrives every March 1st, others opt for the traditional vernal equinox on 20 March. At Best Loved, we take a flexible approach - spring is here when we feel it in our bones - and the first signs are already present (although we wouldn't mind if it got a bit warmer!). Plus, although the cold weather has delayed blooms, gardening experts tell us that this year the flowers will be especially stunning when they finally arrive, so travellers in the coming weeks have something very special awaiting them in their spring holidays and Easter breaks.


Our selection of Best Loved favourites below help you get out and enjoy the sunshine as the days get longer and our appetite for adventure grows - we're talking brisk March walks in Snowdonia, Easter breaks in Devon and Ireland, 5-star luxury in Dublin, the magnificent beauty of the Lake and Peak Districts, a Dorset gourmet escape. And for even more great deals, check out Best Loved's Special Offers detailed search page.

Best wishes,
