Less than five miles from Royal Windsor, shrouded in centuries of curious history, there lies Bray on Thames—an overgrown village with charming quirks aplenty. Sneak off to a hideaway in the middle of the Thames courtesy of this week's Escape to Monkey Island Hotel, Berkshire.

Uncovering the parish's secrets begins when you and your fellow snoop stay overnight in a superior room for £99 (up to a £203.80 value). Either way, you'll set up your telescope in a tastefully decorated room complete with desk, digital TV, iPod docking station, and en suite. Settle into your stay with a glass of bubbly each on arrival.

There's something extraordinary about dining at the exquisite hidey-hole: first, that a two-course dinner is included, and second, that of its four eateries, you'll take your inclusive breakfast in the light, spacious Pavilion Restaurant, where you'll choose from a menu including a Continental platter, full English, or fillet of smoked haddock and poached egg.

Whisper it... Among the village's hidden gems are two of just four three-Michelin-starred restaurants in the country: Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck, and Alain Roux's Waterside Inn. Meanwhile, the local hospital has an oddball history all its own—the red-brick building was originally almshouses founded by the man whose statue still guards it: William Goddard of the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers, naturally. A little further afield you might want to exploit Windsor's abundant retail opportunities.

This package is for two people. Stays are available to redeem on any day of the week.

  • "Berkshire is well known for its attractions including Windsor Castle, Eton college, Ascot Racecourse, and Savill Garden."
