The resort-style hotels include almost everything in the initial price, including breakfast, dinners, access to pools, sports and live shows.

The only thing you’ll have to pay extra for is booze.

Events hosted by the hotels include dance classes, quizzes, history and garden tours.

The three-night breaks will be exclusive to two hotels, Heythrop Park in Cotswold and Runnymede in Windsor.

After winning over Brits with BBC‘s “The Choir”, Gareth will light up the evening with a proper Christmas party featuring everything from classic Christmas tunes and jazzy favourites to Christmas crackers.

His group of elite musicians, including the “angelic-voiced” Sara and the multi-instrumentalist Laurel, will accompany him on stage, along with a local choir.

While Gareth and his musicians will perform on Saturday, the Warner Theatre Company will put on a festive show on Sunday.

The weekend breaks will last three days, from Friday to Monday, and prices start from £419pp:

If you’re undecided on where to go, Heythrop Park Hotel is a 300-year-old Grade II building with a £40 million upgrade.

The hotel offers so many activities that fans have called it a ‘cruise ship on land’.

There are three restaurants, lounge areas, entertainment venues, hot tubs, a spa and an 18-hole golf course.

Activities include laser clay shooting and archery outside, quizzes, chef-hosted cooking workshops, and indoor tastings of gins, cocktails, and teas.

To enhance the cruise ship vibe, the hotel has terraces, a gaming area, a movie theatre, and reading rooms.

Meanwhile, Runnymede will open in autumn 2024. It will be home to an award-winning spa and is close to Kew Gardens and Swinley Forest.

It will be the first Warner property in Greater London and the first situated on a river.

The Runnymede on Thames will have 205 rooms, each with “individually designed artwork that captures the essence of the historic district and the surrounding natural beauty.”

It will also feature a riverfront lounge where visitors can enjoy the views, two restaurants, cocktail terraces, and a brand-new Live Lounge.

Your room will include fast internet access, toiletries and complimentary tea and coffee.

If you plan to drive there, free parking is also available to all visitors for the duration of their stay.

For more staycation deals, late summer staycations in September cost from £3pp a night at Haven, Parkdean and Park Holidays.

And Haven has also announced brand new family fun breaks for Winter 2024 – with popstar appearances and glitter parties.

Plus, if you’re looking to go abroad this summer, Jet2 slashed the price of thousands of summer holidays – with beach breaks from £238pp.

Prices correct at the time of publication.
