When King Henry VIII fancied a little 'me time' he pottered off to County Durham for a spot of hunting, where he resided at The Manor House. Two Escapees can bag a royal night away in the grand hotel for just £99 (up to a £206.95 value).

You don't need blue blood to enjoy the Grade I-Listed hotel that is a true jewel in County Durham's crown; the friendly and courteous staff will show you to your Standard Room which comes with an LCD TV so that you can catch up with The Tudors. There will be no hanging around, as an early check-in of 1 p.m. is included.

Running a country must be tough work, so whether you're a king, queen, or lowly serf, one person can recieve a back, neck, and shoulder massage while another enjoys a facial with a trained professional who will bow down on one knee to all your relaxation needs. The fantastic leisure facilities are at your disposal should you want to blow off a little steam; with a beautiful swimming pool, sauna, and spa bath to soak in after working out in the well-equipped fitness suite, you'll be sure to return to reign with an iron fist.

Visit the prince of wizardry, Harry Potter's wizarding world, otherwise known as Alnwick Castle. For a touch more history, don't miss out on Beamish Museum, the open air living museum that recreates the life of the people of the north east in the 1800s and 1900s. If you want to get in touch with nature, a visit to the spectacular and powerful High Force Waterfall at Forest-in-Teesdale will wash any remaining cobwebs away.

If you've worked up a hunger on your travels, then look no further than the hotel restaurant, which has just been awarded with the Taste Durham accreditation and offers a truly majestic menu. Favourite dishes include wild boar terrine served with cranberry port wine chutney and toasted rosemary olive bread with slow roasted belly pork accompanied by soft goat's cheese sweet potato puree and spiced pears in a cider cream. Guests choosing to dine in the restaurant will receive a bottle of wine to complement the tasty meal.

You won't have to return to your kingdom at the crack of dawn, as your stay includes a late checkout of 1 p.m., giving you plenty of time to enjoy your full English breakfast.

This Escape could be your crowning achievement—you'd be off your head to miss out.
