We'd rather be playing... Stoke Park, Buckinghamshire
The Harry Colt-designed parkland course, which is set in 300 acres, hosted one of the most epic golf matches in cinematic history.
In 1964 James Bond (Sean Connery) and Auric Goldfinger (Gert Frobe) locked horns on the fairways in the classic Bond film Goldfinger. And if that isn’t enough to whet your appetite – along with the fact that scenes from Bridget Jones’s Diary and Layer Cake were also shot here – then the quality of the facilities at Stoke Park should do the trick.
If your ideal short break involves golf, tennis, dining out and luxury spa treatments then look no further. The 5 Red AA Star hotel has 49 bedrooms and suites. Indulge yourself and relax at the hotel’s many restaurants, bars
and lounges, including Humphry’s Fine Dining Restaurant.
The beauty spa has no fewer than 11 treatment rooms as well as a nail bar.
