It is that time of the year when one might scratch one’s head wondering what to buy one’s nearest and dearest for Christmas. Well, how about a gift voucher for a getaway in the beautiful Lake District? We sell gift vouchers for Bed and Breakfast breaks at Blenheim Lodge and can help you organise extras to suit as well.

The Lake District is all about peace and relaxation amidst stunning lake and mountain scenery. We have good restaurants and pubs, plentiful activities and attractions both in and out of doors, many small independent shops that allow visitors to shop till they drop, and, of course, all the usual amenities of large conurbations, such as banks, cinemas, beauty salons, and so on. Thus, one can enjoy all the benefits of pristine countryside and wonderful views whilst being within close proximity of local town and village facilities. The Lake District is indeed a perfect place for a breakaway.

At Blenheim Lodge, we can help tailor make our vouchers for would be guests. For example, if you wished to purchase a yacht sail with dinner on board as an addition to the gift voucher, we can organise this, including pick up from our Bed and Breakfast. We can also organise walking and fishing guides, riding, sightseeing, climbing and other activities, book restaurants, have champagne and flowers in the room for guest arrivals, etc. Just ask, and we will try our best to help.

The vouchers we sell directly from Blenheim Lodge generally have a shelf life of 12 months. Thereafter, they become nil and void of value. The purchaser can either specify approximate or specific dates for a stay in a specific room type at the point of purchase, in which case we would be able to impart information on what it would cost to stay during those periods; or the purchaser can simply buy a voucher to cover at least the minimum cost for a stay in our cheapest room.

As with many accommodation providers, we do have minimum stay requirements during certain times of the year. Again, in line with other guest accommodation, our prices at Blenheim Lodge do range widely depending on the length of stay and time of the year. Anyone holding a voucher would be able to buy upgrades or extend his/her stay as required when contacting us to book the room(s). However, vouchers may not be used towards special offer rates.

So, if you are looking for a Christmas present and cannot decide on what to get someone, do consider purchasing a gift voucher from us at Blenheim Lodge. Please feel free to contact us via email or phone to discuss what you think might be the requirements of the person or persons to whom you are making a gift of a B&B voucher. For instance, if the gift is going to someone who prefers hotels, then, as a Bed and Breakfast establishment, Blenheim Lodge would not be suitable. On the other hand, if your gift is going to someone who wants easy walking proximity to town and Lake, loves peace and quiet and fantastic views from his/her room, and prefers quirky rooms in homely characterful period properties, then Blenheim Lodge could possibly be the one!

Blenheim Lodge offers rooms for double, single, twin and triple occupancy. All our rooms are individual in style and no two are alike. Again, let me reiterate that if you have any questions about purchasing a voucher, please do feel free to ask us. We are here to help.
