Itinerary holidays are becoming increasingly more popular; are you ready for yours?
Many couples and families are valuing experiences, memory-making and quality time together, changing the scope of traditional all-inclusive holiday packages.
At Rutland Hall, we’re fortunate to have a wide range of activities on our doorstep, offering visitors an unforgettable trip. In fact, there’s so much to do, that you’ll need more than one night to fit it all in!
So, in this blog, we’re sharing an example itinerary to help you plan your perfect holiday:
Itinerary Holidays: Day One — Settling in
15:00 pm Arrival
Check in to your accommodation with our helpful, friendly staff, and head to your room to freshen up, unpack and get ready for your first night in our luxury hotel.
17:00 pm Explore the Hotel
Start your break with a wander round the grounds, getting to know where the facilities are and enjoying the breathtaking views of Rutland Water.
19:00 pm Dinner in Blossoms
Indulge in a delicious meal, expertly crafted by our culinary team, led by executive chef, Sumit Chakrabarty. Choose from a selection of exquisite dishes, such as slow-cooked Grasmere pork belly or creamy mushroom linguine.
No need to head off straight after your meal; relax and unwind with a cocktail or two, to the tune of our self-playing piano.
23:00 pm (Or Whenever Bedtime is!)
Head back to your room for a restful nights’ sleep, curled up in our luxurious bedding.
Whether you choose to get up early, or enjoy a well-deserved lie-in, a delicious, hearty breakfast will be waiting for you in Blossoms whenever you’re ready.
Itinerary Holidays: Day Two — Explore the Local Area
10:00 am Head on a Bike Ride Around Rutland Water
The first activity on the list is a bike ride around the water. If you’ve bought your own bikes, great! If not, we have a list of places where you can hire them.
Take your time, soaking up the surroundings and taking note of the abundant wildlife you come across. Famous for birdwatching, you may be lucky enough to spot an osprey or two!
13:00 pm Enjoy Lunch in Our Blossoms Restaurant
Refuel with a light lunch back at Blossoms, before a fun-filled afternoon!
14:30 pm Challenge Your Loved Ones to a Round of Golf!
Our crazy golf course is a star attraction for both couples and families alike!
Indulge in a little friendly competition as you make your way round the course; don’t forget to keep score – we’d all like to know who wins!
16:30 pm Enjoy a Swim in Our Pool
Keen to work up an appetite before dinner? Why not enjoy a swim in our heated pool? Splash around and have fun racing up and down our 22 metre pool — ideal for both grown-ups and kids!
19:00 pm Indulge in Pizzas on the Sunken Terrace
Cosy up with our fire pit tables and enjoy pizzas from our outdoor pizza oven. Made with hand-stretched dough and a variety of toppings, these pizzas are a delicious, comforting meal to enjoy as the sun goes down over Rutland Water.
22:00 pm (Or Whenever Bedtime is!)
Bed down for the night in your cosy, comfortable room — the perfect place to retreat to after an action-packed day!
Itinerary Holidays: Day Three — Head on an Adventure!
09:00 am Enjoy a Relaxed Morning Before Breakfast
Feeling a little tired from the day before? No problem; we serve breakfast until 10am at weekends, giving you that little bit longer to enjoy a lazy morning!
10:30 am Discover Rutland Water… on a Boat!
Rutland Water offers a range of exciting activities on the reservoir — from inflatable water parks to boating experiences. We recommend an afternoon competing against your family at Rutland Aquapark or, for something a little more relaxed, boarding a boat for a gentle cruise around the reservoir with Rutland Belle.
A brilliant activity to include in your itinerary holiday, we highly recommend water-based sports during your stay; after all, the best way to experience the outdoors is to be in the heart of it!
Pack a picnic lunch and make the most of the day spent on the water.
14:00 pm Enjoy a Luxury Treatment or Two
It wouldn’t be a holiday with a little relaxation! Indulge in a pamper session by booking into one of our treatment rooms; choose from our range of treatments, such as a luxury massage, facial or manicure, to help you really unwind.
Finish off with a dip in the pool, or head into the grounds to read a book in the sunshine!
19:00 pm Dinner With a View
The choice is yours; head back to Blossoms where you can watch the chefs prepare your dinner, or opt to sit outside, where you can soak up the last of the rays as the sun sets over the reservoir.
Enjoy an exquisite meal, followed by a Blossoms Signature Cocktail and live music, before heading back to your room for your final night.
Saying Goodbye (For Now)
11:00 am Check Out Time!
Your stay is over — but do please join us for breakfast before you head off. Back in Blossoms, we have a wide selection of breakfast options to choose from.
Checking out, but not ready to leave? Feel free to stay on-site and enjoy our facilities for the rest of the day.
