Go WightAway this festive season for a stunning Christmas break in Bristol & the Cotswolds!!

Mercure Bristol North The Grange Hotel is an elegant 4-star hotel set amongst 18 acres of landscaped gardens, offering the best of both worlds, being a countryside retreat yet close to Bristol city centre and on the doorstep of the Cotswolds.

Our Christmas Break allows you to relax in 4-star comfort with more food than you can shake a stick at, looked after by your Driver and Courier throughout. With trips out, time to relax and after being waited on hand and foot, this will be a Christmas to be remembered.

On Christmas Eve we take you on a scenic tour of the Cotswolds with plenty of time to explore and visit all the iconic villages that the winter makes even more magical, from the comfort of your coach. We visit Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water to name but a few. Your driver will plan a route that gives you the best of the Cotswolds.

The hotel will lay on the finest of Festive Fare, with a traditional Cream Tea on Christmas Eve, a sumptuous Christmas Day Lunch with all the trimmings, a 3 course Boxing Day Lunch and evening Grand Buffet. There is entertainment, quizzes and festive treats throughout.

On Boxing Day morning, we travel 20 minutes in to the centre of Bristol, where you can hit the sales at Cabot Circus, or join us for a visit of Brunel’s SS Great Britain, festively decorated for the season. This is highly recommended and only an extra £11.

The journeys to and from the hotel are well thought out with a stop in Marlborough on the way there and time in Salisbury on the return – great lunch stops not on the motorway.

Add a taxi pick-up and return from home for just £20 per person from anywhere on the Island, to make your Christmas that little bit more special.

We hope you will join us this Festive Season!
