It’s hard to beat an escape to warmer climes when the British winter has set in. Now that so many long-haul favourites are back on the travel map, we’d like to hear where you have fled the winter months. Have you spent Christmas or new year in Australia or South Africa, basked in the warmth of the Caribbean, Thailand or Mexico, been on a safari in Kenya or a Nile cruise in Egypt, or soaked up the sun in Tenerife? The reader who sends in the best entry wins a £250 hotel voucher.
About the provider
Elite Hotels (elitehotels.co.uk) is a privately-owned collection of four distinctive hotels in glorious settings across the south of England: the seafront Grand Hotel in Eastbourne; historic Luton Hoo, set in more than 1,000 acres of Bedfordshire countryside; Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club in East Sussex, with its woodland trails and roaming deer; and Tylney Hall Hotel in Hampshire, with its immaculate gardens. Each family-friendly hotel offers high-quality service, stunning grounds and views, award-winning dining, indulgent spa treatments and some much-needed escapism.
Known to locals as the “White Palace”, the five-star Grand Hotel (grandeastbourne.com) is right on Eastbourne’s glorious seafront and Victorian promenade. The 152-room property has two award-winning restaurants, a cocktail bar with an al fresco terrace, and a health club with both indoor and outdoor pools. Just moments from the start of the South Downs Way, the hotel is also close to Beachy Head, Birling Gap and the Towner Art Gallery. The winner will enjoy a one-night stay for two including dinner, bed and breakfast, worth over £250. Valid for stays until June 30 2022, excluding specific black-out dates over holiday periods. Subject to availability.
