In medieval times, Chipping Walden was an ordinary, sleepy town dealing mostly in wool. Then, they discovered the saffron crocus, which was in much demand for use in medicine, food, and perfume. They started to grow them in large amounts, and declared their crocus focus with a new name: Saffron Walden.

Extract yourself from the humdrum and give your mood a similar upgrade with an overnight stay at Linden House for £114 (up to a £245 value), or add an extra night for £199 (up to a £421 value). The hotel has also undergone a transformation—it used to be an antique shop, and in homage, each individually designed room has a piece of furniture from those days. You'll plant yourselves amongst lush décor and roll-top baths in a superior, superior deluxe, or four-poster room.

Rejuvenate after the trip with an included two-course à la carte dinner, and tuck into dishes with refined flavours: the pan-seared wood pigeon salad is drizzled in walnut oil, the roasted Loch Fyne salmon is served with sautéed baby gem lettuce, and the rump of lamb is topped with wild mushrooms. If you are staying two nights and revisit to dine on your second, a glass of wine each is included.

After a full English breakfast, Saffron Walden is nearby and you could get lost in the maze at Bridge End Garden, or explore Audley End House—the parklands here received their makeover from renowned landscaper 'Capability' Brown, and you can also play at being a Victorian maid in the Service Wing.

With a late checkout too, this Escape has everything you need to do what Chipping Walden did: stop, and smell the flowers.

  • "Sleepy medieval villages hide down winding lanes and amid countryside that inspired the painter Constable."
