Enter for the chance to win a stay at a historic 14th-century hotel in the heart of Shakespeare country
Founded by award-winning English hospitality entrepreneur and philanthropist John Spence, Karma Group is a trailblazing international boutique travel and lifestyle brand offering extraordinary experiences and exclusive curated entertainment in the world’s most beautiful locations. From soulful spas to hedonistic beach parties, historic hotels to designer resorts, Karma Group is ideal for five-star travellers.
Karma Group is proud to announce a new addition to its global portfolio of luxury properties: Karma Salford Hall. Nestled in the Vale of Evesham near the English Cotswolds, this grade I-listed country house hotel has parts dating back to the 14th century, when it was first built to house monks of the nearby Evesham Abbey. Today the property seamlessly retains its Tudor charm, while providing carefully curated comfort in its 32 quaint bedrooms, traditional bar, atmospheric restaurant, and well-stocked library.
Karma Group is delighted to offer Discover Britain readers the opportunity to win a mini-break at their newest acquisition, Karma Salford Hall, which will open as soon as government guidelines allow.
One winner and their guest will enjoy a three-night stay worth £1,500, complete with breakfast on each morning, a two-course dinner on the night of arrival, and two 30-minute Karma Spa treatments (one for each guest). Dining at Karma Salford Hall is an experience in itself. The Sir Stanford Restaurant is furnished with wood-panelling, chandeliers and period paintings that will transport you back in time.
By contrast, the food on offer is fresh and exciting, with Karma Group’s talented chefs able to turn their hand to British and European favourites, as well as dishes inspired by their global portfolio of destinations. That said, a conscious effort is made to source ingredients locally as much as possible. For a more intimate atmosphere, you may prefer to eat in the bar, which is full of cosy sofas huddled around the fire. Here you can choose from a menu of Great British pub snacks served with a gourmet flourish.
The perfect base
Within easy reach of the Karma Salford Hall hotel is Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, where you can explore the famous bard’s life and legacy. Meanwhile, to the south, the beauty of the Cotswolds await, with Broadway Tower and Hidcote Gardens both just a 20-minute drive away.
Karma Salford Hall is offering all Discover Britain readers up to 30 per cent discount on all accommodation reservations booked before 30 April 2021. Simply quote “DISCOVER BRITAIN” and contact the friendly team on firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44(0)1386 871 300. Of course, if the winner of the competition has already reserved a holiday, they’ll be fully refunded.
Did you know?
Salford Hall once belonged to King Henry VIII. During the Dissolution of the Monasteries in England, Wales and Ireland between 1536 and 1541, the king seized the parishes of Salford Priors and Abbot’s Salford (including Salford Hall). They later formed part of his marriage settlement to sixth wife Catherine Parr in 1543.
Henry VIII was known to be very materially generous with his wives, giving huge settlements of land and jewels to each. Fortunately this love story had a happy ending for Catherine at least, who outlived Henry after just three and a half years of marriage.
One lucky winner drawn at random from all entries received will enjoy the following:
