A new collection of ‘experience-based’ mini-break packages has been launched by Cheshire Country Holidays today.
Prompted by English Tourism Week #ETW17, where the focus is to highlight the value of tourism to the country; the Cheshire based accommodation provider has created 3 new getaways. The packages bring together the services and products of other regional tourism providers. Through collaboration the individual tourism and hospitality business’ aim to inspire holiday-makers from the UK and overseas to choose Cheshire for their next #staycation.
The English Tourism Week initiative was introduced by VisitEngland in 2013, with HRH Prince Charles as Patron for a 5-year term. Cheshire Country Holidays will be supporting the aims of VisitEngland by launching a number of packages throughout 2017; developed to showcase year-round reasons for visitors to venture ‘to the north’ and experience the county of Cheshire with its abundance of historic sites, museums, natural attractions, and recreational activities.
In a recent statement, VisitEngland Chief Executive Sally Balcombe said “Our stunning countryside, vibrant cities and historic landscapes continue to inspire people to discover what’s on their doorstep and throughout the country.”
In response Cheshire Country Holidays Manager Tracy Platt said, “Cheshire has so much to offer and because it is so diverse, we’re looking to build on our portfolio so we can reach the various demographics and ensure we have a mini-break or indeed week long holiday that willappeal to the different sectors of the market. Our packages are ideas to give people a flavour of all the different things to see and do in Cheshire.” She went on to say “we tailor each stay to meet the requirements of the guests”.
All three packages have been designed for small groups up to a maximum of 17 people accommodated in 7 bedrooms. Catering for the different small group markets – family, friends, corporate or interest-driven – the packages are examples of the type of holiday that can be put together.
The new collection includes activity, celebration and digital detox themed breaks with a minimum 2-night stay. Guests staying at the 16th century farmhouse can choose to:
· Escape the fast-paced day-to-day routine with a total chill out and back to nature experience. Tailored, with consideration to age and ability, the group can opt for either Bear Grylls style activities or a less intense and more holistic experience. #digitaldetox
· Share a special occasion – birthday bash, anniversary, hen do, baby shower, girls ‘weekend away’, reunion – and do it in style with catered in-house dining, a vintage afternoon tea and a wine, gin or champagne tasting. #celebration
· Experience a range of exciting outdoor activities in a 15 acre woodland setting. The group can enjoy segway, laser clay & air rifle shooting, archery, low ropes and airsoft combat. #activity
