The Hellidon Lakes golf resort is set in beautiful, rolling English countryside. It feels perfectly secluded and yet is only a few miles away from Daventry and is well signposted and easily found.
The splendid isolation was perfect for our weekend golf break and the hotel is comparable to other similar golf resorts I have visited on previous golf holidays. Reception Staff were exceptionally nice and as we arrived at 12, 3 hours early for check in, they arranged for the rooms to be ready earlier. The rooms were excellent and boasted great views over the golf course...by the time we had unpacked we were eager to get out on the golf course.
There are three nine hole loops to choose from and we would recommend staying clear of one of them which was more suitable to beginners; it seemed like more of an academy course. The other two nines were fantastic and we really enjoyed playing them. The golf course isn’t overly long but it still presents a challenge. We are both 18 handicappers and both thought it was a fair contest against Old Man Par!
The allowance included in our golf break package for our evening meal was £26 pounds, which is sufficient for two courses and maybe even three if you are lucky. The food was delicious and although the service started a little slowly it picked up and the evening turned out to be a real success. The bar prices were no more expensive than we had anticipated and were cheaper than other venues we had visited on previous golf trips.
We all enjoyed 3 courses and shared two bottles of wine which came to 40 pounds per head meaning we all had to chip in a bit more but we were happy to do so. We sat up untilwell after 1am and there were a few other golfers in the bar so although it was quiet (it was a Sunday night) it was not dead.
I will definitely be coming back to book future golf tours and holidays with Your Golf Travel as everything ran like clockwork and the value for money was great.
