Set in the medieval wool town of Lavenham, the striking 15th-century Swan Hotel & Spa, a member of Pride of Britain Hotels, is a luxurious retreat in the heart of sleepy Suffolk. With its half-timbered facade, oak-beamed interiors, open fires and cosy nooks, the hotel combines its traditional architecture with contemporary styling. Each of its 45 bedrooms and suites has been individually designed to complement their unique features; some enjoy views over the medieval courtyard, while others overlook the historic high street.
The Swan is also home to Weavers’ House Spa, a haven of tranquillity with six treatment rooms, a steam room, sauna and an outdoor vitality pool all on-site.
Our winner and their guest will enjoy a two-night stay at The Swan, with a 30-minute session in Weavers’ vitality pool included. The prize also includes a full Suffolk breakfast each morning and a three-course dinner on one evening in the elegant Gallery restaurant, which takes its name from the minstrels’ gallery set among the oak beams. With a focus on quality, local ingredients and a talented team of chefs, a meal here is a feast of modern British flavours.
The contemporary Brasserie 487 provides a more informal option. Light meals are also offered in the Airmen’s Bar, which is full of Second World War memorabilia from the US Army Airforce, who were stationed nearby. On warmer days, lunch, afternoon tea or cocktails are served in the private courtyard and gardens – the perfect setting in which to relax after your exploration of Lavenham’s heritage buildings.
