NORTHERN (HIGH) LIGHTS A ‘True and tender is the north’ wrote Tennyson more than 150 years ago. And who are we to argue when we look at the region’s top-drawer delights. s soon as you arrive at Alvaston Hall, you’ll know this is a place that always puts you first. In 2017, the AA awarded the hotel four stars and Britain in Bloom gave its gardens a gold medal. Driving forward with this success, the team here is now inviting you to sample its new-look weekends. The property was once the centre for Cheshire social life and is making a return to its party roots. A delicious three-course dinner in the Grove cabaret restaurant is a great way to kick off, and there’ll be wine and fizz by the glass so you can keep trying something new. The party will then get going with lively acts and music until late. To make mornings easier, breakfast will be served until 10.30am, and there’ll be a raft of new activities to take you through the day. How about a wine masterclass and cocktail demo, and brand-new Motown and 60s acts? Or a guided walk around Cheshire and a trip to the races? These weekends start in March. Why not be one of the first to give them your stamp of approval? Tee off right outside your room at Alvaston.
