The Maynard announces Christmas short-break special

Published: Wed Sep 24 2008

Escape all the doom and gloom with an inclusive, festive overnight stay at The Maynard…you deserve it! From 1 November – 23 December, The Maynard is offering an inclusive overnight package for two in its recently refurbished boutique hotel - from just £216 – representing 20% off the normal price.

The Maynard has thought of everything, and will even include 2 entry tickets to Chatsworth House, so you can re-live scenes from The Duchess, Keira Knightley’s latest film featuring her as the Duchess of Devonshire and with many scenes shot at Chatsworth House.

The package includes:
Afternoon tea for two people (3pm-6pm)
Overnight accommodation for two people sharing (£216 Standard / £232 superior / £245 suite)
Entry tickets to Chatsworth House and gardens, for two people
Complimentary drink for two people on arrival at Dinner
3 course a-la-carte Dinner in the 2 AA rosette restaurant
Full Derbyshire Breakfast

This package would normally cost £270 and is available for a limited period only from just £216 per couple. Subject to availability.

Paul Downing, director of The Maynard, said: "The film The Duchess has only just been released at the cinemas and its effects have not really been felt by the tourism industry yet. Once the word gets out we are sure that the area will get even busier, so it’s a good idea to visit the Peak District now while it’s still relatively quiet.

"You can come to The Maynard, escape the city and totally unwind in the most beautiful countryside. So you can feel like the Duke and Duchess for the day and not worry about a thing, we have included as much as possible in the package; even Chatsworth House entry tickets are included."
