Marygreen Gift Vouchers Are The Perfect Choice!

Marygreen Gift Vouchers

As anyone knows, gift buying can be tricky for even the closest of people, which is why we decided to offer you not only a helping hand, but also the perfect solution. Here at Marygreen Manor, we want people to stop buying material gifts and instead, give the gift of memories.

While a new tablet or phone may offer initial excitement upon unwrapping, and a new dress excite her senses for the night she wears it, we guarantee that within days, the excitement will wear thin and the memories with fade.

With a Marygreen Manor Gift Voucher however, not only are you telling that special someone just how much you adore them (so much so in fact that you’re quite literally buying time with them) but you’re also offering them wonderful memories they’ll cherish forever.

Afternoon Tea Gift Vouchers

Let’s not forget that in this fast paced world, too few of us take the time to sit down, relax and really smell the roses. With a gift voucher from Marygreen Manor however, they’ll quite literally be forced to take some time out and indulge in the more pleasant things in life, in the very least, step away from the office, kitchen, nursery or wherever else causes them stress from day to day.

Gourmet Get-Away Gift Vouchers

Mother’s Day At The Marygreen Manor


For all those who might not yet have Valentines Day sorted, we apologise but with a little over a month to the day, we think it’s time you start thinking about Mother’s Day. While we all have a lot going on in our lives, we thought it only fair to take a second to truly recognise why it’s important to wind down and recognise such a significant day.

Ask any mother and we guarantee they’ll tell you that it’s not important, as long as their children and family are happy and healthy, they’re happy but dig a little deeper and you’ll find that actually that isn’t the case. Mother’s Day is important to nearly every mother out there and while they might dream of being pampered with hand-made gifts and breakfast in bed, they still won’t tell you. People argue that mothers should be celebrated on a daily basis and while that’s true, it doesn’t leave much in the way of enjoying something a little extra special. That’s before we even mention the fact that there seems to be a complete lack of time in our fast paced lives to stop and really appreciate what’s important which is why, Mother’s Day is the perfect day to stop all the noise, all the frantic diary scheduling and the petty bickering about who’s doing what around the house. Mother’s Day is the time to simply sit back and really appreciate just what an amazing thing our mothers do for us.

Here at the Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant however, we firmly believe that merely saying thank you isn’t enough. With this however, we still realise that jobs can’t be put on hold, life cannot simply stop so to make things easier we’ve created the perfect evening in which to celebrate that special woman in your life. On Sunday 6th March, here at the Marygreen Manor we’ll be hosting a special night for mums with an extra special 3 course Sunday lunch, in our beautiful Tudors Restaurant and at only £45 per person (children under 12 just £23) we think you’ll agree it’s just too good to miss.

Fun Festive Things To Do In London This Weekend

One of the many Christmas attractions in London, just short journey from Marygreen Manor

One of the many Christmas attractions in London, just a short journey from Marygreen Manor

As you well know, here at the Marygreen Manor, we aren’t just perfectly situated for all those wanting to explore the wonderful county of Essex. We also happen to be perfectly located for those wanting the fun and frolics of London without having to endure the rat race 24/7. With just one simple train journey from Brentwood Station you can be at Liverpool Street in around 30 minutes or better still, jump straight on to the M25 for access to the A13 or A12, both of which take you to different areas of our beloved city. With such easy access into the capital we thought we’d offer you a great guide on some of the perfect Christmas themed activities to get up to in the city this weekend. Let’s face it, with Christmas shopping well and truly done (if it isn’t take a peek at our fabulously indulgent Marygreen Manor gift vouchers) and the Christmas and Boxing Day dinners sorted (thanks to our ever popular Christmas Day and Boxing Day lunches) this weekend should be all about fun, games and enjoyment. So in true Christmas spirit, let’s make sure everyone has a smile on their face this weekend with a festive trip to the city.

Winterville in Victoria Park – take a short drive along the A12 and find yourself immersed in a frosty town that’s brimming with festive adventures. East London’s finest park will be packed with a full on programme of attractions and entertainment as well as great food and drink. Everything centres around the Winterville clock tower offering seasonal classics along with a myriad of dazzling alternatives, catering perfectly to all ages. Entry into the Winterville attraction is completely free too which makes it even more attractive, especially when you consider the money you’ve no doubt spent on family and friends this Christmas. Events you can expect to see inside of Winterville include the Moscow State Circus, the Backyard Cinema’s magic forest and even the Winter Night Garden that will be showcasing a series of family favourites and Christmas Classics. They’ll also be a somewhat reimagined Santa’s Grotto along with a Winterville pub aptly named Bar Humbug serving mulled wine and some rather delicious food.

Eyeskate at the London Eye – for some, a Christmas day out just isn’t complete without an ice skating adventure in the middle of the concrete jungle that is our city. There’s just something super magical about an ice filled arena in the middle of skyscrapers. The fact that there are now mutliple ice rinks scattered throughout the city is just testament to their popularity but there’s now one ice rink that stands out from the rest and we’re not talking about the world famous Somerset House ice rink. This time we’re focusing all of our attention on Eyeskate, the spectacular ice rink along the South Bank at the London Eye. Returning for it’s sixth year, it’s offering plenty of festive fun and wintery activities. To top off your 45-minute spin on the ice, you could always book a flight on the London Eye too for a winter cocktail experience or share a private Mistletoe Cupid’s Capsule for a little added romance.

Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland – last but most certainly not least, we have quite possibly the ultimate Christmas experience in London, Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland. Here in the middle of the city’s most famous park, it’s Christmas Day every single day. Here at Winter Wonderland you’ll find over 100 amazing rides and attractions along with Christmas markets, bars, restaurants, street food and even live music and what’s more, it’s all free. On top of all of that, you’ll also find ice-skating, the Magical Ice Kingdom, Zippos Christmas circus and even Bar Ice.

With so much to choose from we know it’s going to be a touch decision but if you’re staying here at the Marygreen Manor, there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t enjoy all three attractions over the course of a few days or a weekend. Just a short journey in to the city is all it takes and then when you’re done, enjoy the peaceful, calming surroundings of our wonderful manor house complete with log fires and luxury accommodation. We can’t think of a more perfect way to start your Christmas holidays.

Start And Finish Your Christmas Shopping Today With Marygreen Manor Vouchers

Merry Christmas

Have a Merry Christmas here at the Marygreen Manor

We’ve got just 21 more days of Christmas shopping opportunities left. Now although that does sound like a fair amount of time, when you work out how many of those days will be crossed off the list with work, that whittles it down to just 6 days left. Again, this could be misconstrued as more than enough time but that’s not taking into consideration any weekend hobbies, socialising or even relaxation time that we’ll inevitably take on the run up to the big day. So really, all in all, we probably have maybe 1 or 2 good days. The question is, do you know what you’re getting and where from because if not, you’re in for a tough ride. Equally, even if you know what’s on your shopping list, it’s still very much a guessing game as to whether or not the shops will still have it in stock. The short and sweet of it is, if you haven’t done your Christmas shopping by now, you’re going to come a little unstuck.

Now before you pass out in fear, overwhelmed by images of tantrum throwing spouses, we’re hear to tell you we have the answer and it comes in the form of a rather small and rather innocent looking gift voucher. At the Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant, a gift voucher doesn’t just buy you food; it buys you a tantalising, mouth-watering explosion in each bite you take. It doesn’t just buy you a hotel room; it buys you a luxurious escape from the rat race and daily grind in the comfort of exquisite furnishings. It doesn’t just buy you afternoon tea; it buys you a trip back to 1840 when Anna the Duchess of Bedford first discovered a craving for such delights.

Gift a loved one the true gift of time and memories this year with a gift voucher for the Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant.

Take The Stress Out Of Gift Giving This Year With Marygreen Manor Gift Vouchers


Be extra popular under the mistletoe this year

It’s that time of year again when it can be easy to get caught up in the search for the ideal gift. Your mind is in a whirl as to whether your mother will love the cashmere sweater or whether your brother really will love the video game you bought him. What many don’t understand is the fact that your search isn’t just about buying a present, it’s about buying a present that not only makes the person receiving it happy but avoids any serious dents in the bank at the same time.


Would you believe a number of studies actually support the notion that spending money on people makes you happy, so if you’re planning on buying a few presents (for others) this year then you’re well on your way to a happy Christmas. The best thing you could therefore do is ensure the stress of gift giving is completely removed and for that, we have a few suggestions.


Create memories and buy experiences as opposed to things – one of the greatest gifts in life can be receiving a truly meaningful experience. The reason for this is actually down to the fact that people adapt to things. Yes, that new iPhone was so amazing when you first got it last year but now it’s just slipped into every day life. What was an amazing gift is now looking past its sell by date and about to get thrown in the trash to make room for the next model. This gift will be forgotten however an experience is a different thing entirely. An experience can be absolutely anything such as a gift voucher for a wonderful meal in our stunning Tudor Restaurant to a night in one of our luxury suites. A gift like this not only strengthens your relationship through the simple act of spending time with one another and doing things together but it will also create some wonderful memories too. These experiences can be shared and savoured. You’ll enjoy these memories and relive them for years to come.


Gift cards aren’t the enemy – for one reason or another, people fear the gift voucher. For some, a wash of guilt rides over them the moment they purchase a gift card. The fear of being perceived as impersonal can become too much but oh how times have changed. One study concludes that by enjoying the experience with the person in question, you’re not only making the gift super personal but you also get to see them enjoy it. You also get to completely eliminate any stress usually associated with gift giving which, let’s face it, is worth its weight in gold.

Merry Christmas

This offers an overnight stay and a full English breakfast the very next day. If you’re looking for something a little extra special then why not opt for our Gourmet Get-Away for 2 Guests.
