Renowned for its all-encompassing short breaks in stand-out destinations, Warner Hotels recently hosted two exciting events at one of its grandest properties – complete with special guest appearances from some of the UK’s favourite stars and authors.

Set in 440 acres of rolling Cotswolds countryside, the 300-year-old Grade II listed Heythrop Park offered an opulent backdrop for two brand-new events in partnership with Prima and Good Housekeeping magazine – designed with award-winning interiors, restaurants, activities, and indulgent spa facilities.

Hosted by Prima editor Jo Checkley and widely recognised television presenter, Gaby Roslin, the first of the events provided guests with the opportunity to chat with the celebrities first-hand in an exclusive Q&A session.

After delving into all the insider knowledge, guests then put their creative skills to the test by taking part in a crafting workshop with award-winning craft expert and colour therapist, Momtaz Begum-Hossain, before tucking into a delicious buffet lunch.

The second event showcased editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping, Gaby Huddart, and respected weather presenter Carol Kirkwood, with another series of intimate talks and   Q&As.

The lucky guests had the chance to discover more about Carol’s journey in weather forecasting, as well as her time on Strictly Come Dancing – and her growing vocation as an author.

Gaby also revealed all the insider information behind her most recent feel-good novel, ‘Secrets Of The Villa Amore’, giving eager readers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into her writing process.

After mingling with the stars, guests then chatted over sumptuous sandwiches and cakes with a delicious afternoon tea, specially selected by Good Housekeeping’s editors.

Both events provided the opportunity to choose an exciting activity – a birds of prey experience, a reiki workshop, a painting and coffee class or a tailored skincare session - as well as a tour of the hotel’s grounds. All guests were gifted with a goodie bag full of treats to take home, including signed copies of Gaby’s and Carol’s books.

Paul Pomroy, Chief Executive Officer at Warner Hotels, said: “We’re well-known for offering amazing breaks to our guests - but we also love to delight them with unique experiences.

“It’s been a pleasure to partner with much-loved brands like Prima and Good Housekeeping and host such a brilliant line-up of special guests to give people the chance to meet their favourite editors and celebrities first-hand – and we know they enjoyed all the beauty that our Cotswolds hotel, Heythrop Park, has to offer.”

Gaby Roslin, who hosted the Prima event, continued: “What a magical day I had with Prima Mag and Warner Hotels. It was wonderful spending time with the readers and getting to chat and learn what the magazine means to them. And I learnt a new craft! What’s not to love. I do hope we can do it again and again.”

Momtaz Begum-Hossain added: “It was the crafternoon of dreams; a beautiful location, gorgeous materials to work with and a warm and joyful atmosphere.”

Though the events might have come to an end, the fun doesn’t stop there, as the hotel group is offering a host of star-studded entertainment line ups and special experiences – giving holidaymakers the chance to meet their idols on their next staycation.
