WIN A WICKED WEEKEND AWAY
Friday 26 May 1995
We invite you to celebrate the centenary of this delicious decade by injecting a frisson of excitement into your life with a wicked weekend away accompanied, naturally, by the partner of your choice.
And to make this forbidden fruit all the sweeter, it could cost you absolutely nothing - at least not financially.
We have sumptuously self- indulgent breaks for two to be won at 12 luxury hotels around Britain. Every day until Saturday we will give you details of two hotels which are offering our prize weekend breaks. These will comprise of a two-night stay inclusive of breakfast and dinner. To enter the prize draw simply ring the special phone number given to the hotel of your choice up till midnight on the day of publication. Please leave your name, address and daytime phone number and your details will be entered into the appropriate prize draw. You may enter for as many prize draws as you wish.
Each prize draw phoneline offers two runners-up prizes of magnums of Perrier-Jouet champagne, the wine that fuelled the Naughty Nineties and the perfect toast to any irresponsible escapade. As well as this, two further runners-up will receive presentation sets of the authoritative Johansens Guides to hotels, country houses and inns, normally selling for pounds 37. We have also arranged discount deals offering three nights for the price of two at the same hotels plus some 70 further establishments.
Today's wicked weekend hideaways are the Devonshire Arms near Skipton and the Hatton Court Hotel in Gloucestershire.
Owned by the Duke of Devonshire, his eponymous Arms at Bolton Abbey, near Skipton in Yorkshire, is the estate of the art. It borders the River Wharfe, is set in 12 acres of parkland and is furnished with antiques from Chatsworth. Guests who tire of lounging in luxury can follow traditional estate pursuits, wallow in Turkish baths or swim in the pool. Hearty local fare will ensure that, whatever your wicked will, energy never flags.
The hotel is offering a discount deal of three nights for the price of two at the special rate of pounds 260 for a twin or double room including breakfast. Dinner on average is pounds 30 per person (tel: 01756 710441, IND 04).
The ivy-clad Hatton Court is a secluded hideaway in 37 glorious acres near Gloucester. The views across the Malvern Hills and the Severn Valley are of the kind that inspire poets while the luxury of the rooms inspires seductive self indulgence. The restaurant could easily inspire gluttony.
The hotel is offering a discount deal of three nights for the price of two at the special rate of pounds 190 for a twin or double room including breakfast. Dinner on average is pounds 20 per person (tel: 01452 617412, IND 03).
To enter your name in the Devonshire Arms prize draw, call 0891 111 692. For the Hatton Court prize, ring 0891 111 693. Calls cost 39p per minute cheap rate, 49p per minute at all other times and should last no longer than three minutes. Winners will be selected at random after lines close at midnight tonight.
