Ideally we want to stay in the UK and I am definitely in need of some luxury so I have been perusing handpickedhotels.co.uk in order to find a romantic country house hotel with character, style and good food. It's certainly the right website for this as it's easy to find hotels in the location that you are looking for and to see what packages are on offer. I particularly like the destination guides that tell you about the area where your hotel is based - giving you information about heritage and culture, outdoor activities and things to do for families. This makes it really easy to plan a great weekend.
Hand Picked Hotels also have a great sections on spa days which look blissful. It would be great to add some pampering to my break - just what I need to sooth away the aches and pains inflicted on me by two very active kids!
So far I have narrowed it down to two favourites. The L'Horizon Hotel and Spa at St. Brelade's Bay in Jersey looks amazing. I have had some lovely family holidays in Jersey and the thought of a beautiful hotel coupled with walks along the fantastic white beaches is extremely tempting.

And then again the Norton House Hotel and Spa in Scotland also looks wonderful. I love Edinburgh and when we went there before we ended up in a very unspectacular hotel (imagine a cold basement room in February!) so it would be great to go there and stay somewhere much more luxurious.

So now I've jut got to decide which one to book and we will be off on our mini-break - I can't wait!
