Fancy getting away for a golfing break this summer, but don’t want to drive too far? Check out Shakespeare’s England. Located in the heart of the country with easy motorway access and a wealth of fabulous golf hotels, the region is the perfect destination for business or pleasure golfers alike.
For starters there’s the Ardencote Manor Hotel, just outside Warwick. This 19th century manor house sits within an 83-acre estate surrounded by glorious Warwickshire countryside. After enjoying a round of golf on its fabulous 18-hole course, you can soothe your weary muscles in the purpose-built spa, before tucking into a well-earned dinner in one of the hotel’s two award-winning restaurants.
Then there’s the Welcombe Hotel, Spa & Golf Club, set in 157 acres of beautiful grounds and parkland on the outskirts of Stratford-upon-Avon. Alongside the outstanding Championship 18-hole course, this luxury hotel offers some of the finest leisure facilities in the heart of England, including all-weather tennis courts and a luxurious spa.
Last but not least there’s the recently refurbished Best Western Plus Henley Hotel, part of the Henley Golf & Country Club. One of the Midlands’ favourite golf clubs, this picturesque PGA course overlooks the historic town of Henley-in-Arden. With both 18-hole and 9-hole courses, plus a driving range and practice green, all playing abilities are catered for. You can even have a go at ‘foot golf’, if you fancy something a bit different!
Pick any of these golfing breaks in Shakespeare’s England and you can be confident of getting not just a great game of golf but also quality overnight accommodation. There are often special packages on offer, so it’s always worth checking with the individual venue before making a booking.
