Dodge the dreaded Monday morning blues this summer and indulge in a sumptuously lazy Sunday at The Horn of Plenty in the beautiful Tamar Valley
Call in the grandparents, book Monday off work and leave the chores ‘til Tuesday; we’re calling Sunday as the new Saturday since The Horn of Plenty introduced the Lazy Sunday Special.
Benefitting from quiet roads, peaceful walks and ridiculously reasonable rates, an extended weekend retreat at The Horn of Plenty is a unique opportunity to spend a night in the countryside with someone special. Soak up the views over the manor house’s glorious gardens and orchards from your bedroom or take advantage of the serene country roads with a visit to nearby Dartmoor National Park or the charming market town of Tavistock.
However lazily you decide to spend your Sunday, you can look forward to an evening of culinary creativity and seasonal sensations courtesy of head chef Ashley Wright at the hotel’s two AA rosette restaurant. Fashioning decadent dishes such as native lobster with pollack, broad bean and nasturtium, and luscious desserts including a rather fabulous raspberry parfait with white chocolate textures and sorrel, you can rest easy with a full belly and refreshed sense of calm.
Sunday stays finish in decadent style with a full Horn of Plenty breakfast with the papers on Monday morning – what better way to start a four day working week?
The Lazy Sunday Special includes an overnight stay, three course dinner and full Horn of Plenty breakfast for £189 per room. Call 01822 832528 to secure your room.
