Exciting news! Well, for me anyway. Since the launch of ProHides we’ve wanted to combine combine our quality ‘hide days’ with great accommodation and the awesome cuisine from the Royal Oak, Bishopstone. The one-stop-shop. Yesterday, we finalised a new package deal! In March, Helen Browning’s Royal Oak opened their incredible new B&B hotel. It is just superb! Now, we have the wonderful opportunity to offer you the full package: Photography, accommodation and meals! Eat, sleep, shoot, repeat. Marvellous. Check this package out:
- Full day in the superb Little Owl Hide;
- Dawn-t0-dusk photography;
- Lunchtime break in the Royal Oak for a gorgeous all inclusive meal and drink;
- Return transfer to the hide for the afternoon and evening session;
- One night’s accommodation in the Royal Oak’s beautiful B&B rooms
(Subject to availability. Confirmation prior to booking)
- Breakfast included as packed picnic for hide, or full breakfast in the hotel lounge.
The total cost for this all-inclusive package is £300
Scenario 1 – Stay the night before:
Arrive the night before and enjoy a wonderful, restful night’s sleep in the hotel. Then be transferred, literally from your door to the hide for a pre-sunrise start – packed breakfast in hand. I will collect you again at lunchtime and drive you to the Royal Oak pub where you can enjoy your choice from a fantastic menu, accompanied with a drink. You will then be transferred back to the hide for a well-deserved snooze, before the afternoon and evening sessions begin. Collection from the hide is after sunset or whenever you have had your fill.
Scenario 2 – Stay the night after:
Alternatively, arrive at our meeting point at a pre-arranged time and I will transfer you to the hide. I will collect you at lunchtime and drive you to the Royal Oak pub where you can enjoy your choice from a fantastic lunch menu, accompanied with a drink. You will then be transferred back to the hide for well-deserved snooze, before the afternoon and evening sessions begin. Collection from the hide is after sunset. You can then dine in the Royal Oak (at your cost, or included if paid for seperately in advance), unwind in total comfort and review your stunning images from the day’s photography.
How does that sound!?
I think this is brilliant. No more ‘checking Trip Advisor’ for separate accommodation and meal recommendations for your trip. We will offer the all-in-one package for £250. All you need to do is select this new offer in the Extras menu when booking. If you detail which night you wish to sleep in the hotel, I will call ASAP to confirm availability.
If that isn’t enough…
We are also offering a Royal Oak Lunchtime package, where you are collected and transferred to Helen Browning’s Royal Oak for lunch and then returned to the hide for the afternoon. This is an optional extra for £70 and can be added to your hide reservation during the booking process. It may not appeal to everybody, but for those that don’t wish to pack all that food and may appreciate ‘stretching their legs’ in the middle of the day, the option is now there.
