1. Reschedule Mother’s Day lunch with afternoon tea and a tour

2. Enjoy Sunday lunch in a stately home followed by an archery session

In a rather exciting twist, the luxury Howsham Hall has opened its private country home to the public this year. You’ll be able to enjoy an expertly prepared 3 course Sunday lunch, which includes the likes of roast sirloin beef and apple and butterscotch crumble.

And those looking to add to their experience can also book on to one of their popular country pursuits activities afterwards – including exhilarating clay pigeon shooting or an archery session.

3. Have dinner in a mansion for Father’s Day

You’ve missed out on celebrating so many special occasions in the last year, you and your family deserve something truly special to enjoy once lockdown restrictions end.

We recommend treating your dearest father to an unforgettable dining experience at The Mansion in Roundhay Park. You’ll get a delicious 3 course lunch, plus the opportunity to take a leisurely stroll around the beautiful Roundhay Park gardens afterwards. An ideal way to spend Father’s Day this year!

4. Play detective at a luxury murder mystery night

You can even continue the mystery late into the evening by booking an overnight stay at one of their beautiful stately home bedrooms, priced at just £170 per night.

5. Experience wine tasting with a twist experience

Finally, a wine tasting experience that’s not over zoom!

Enjoy the new luxury of meeting in-person whilst testing your knowledge of vino. Celebrated as an evening to remember, you’ll get to enjoy delicious sharing platters throughout the evening whilst you attempt to solve the mystery of matching the sommeliers wines with their descriptions.

Prices for the wine tasting experience are just £40 per guest, with room stay available from £170 per night.
