My keen interest in horses began at a very young age, when first introduced to the magnificent creatures when visiting my cousins on their farm. I was lucky enough to be able to start learning to ride at this young age, and have been hooked ever since. My interest is not only riding myself, but going to watch shows and competitions, as well as popular horse racing events such as Royal Ascot and Cheltenham.
My next such event is going to watch the showing and show jumping at the Royal Windsor Horse show, which is running from 14th-18th May this year. The show is in the fabulous grounds of Windsor Castle, which is just a beautiful venue. When I went last time I just visited for the day to see a few of my favourite chosen events, but this year I’m really keen to see a lot more! The trouble with coming from far away though as in my case, is that I then need somewhere to stay.
I began my search for Royal Windsor Horse Show accommodation on the internet, as everyone does these days! I started looking for Hotels in Windsor itself, but as I had left booking a little late it was already very full and the prices accordingly high. Feeling a little annoyed with myself I checked on the Windsor tourist website in the view of preparing to broaden my search somewhat, and the perfect little Hotel immediately jumped out at me. Stirrups Country House Hotel. Stirrups… Stirrups..! I could already tell from the name that it was perfect for my needs!!
Doing some more research on Stirrups Hotel it certainly comes highly recommended. A Country House Hotel in between Windsor and Bracknell with free car parking, it would take me less than 20 minutes to get to Windsor for the Horse Show meaning I could take a taxi and avoid the hassle of parking in the busy town centre! Looking at the Stirrups website I could tell it was tastefully themed with horses in mind, with beautiful décor and a fabulous looking bar and restaurant. I was able to download their menu and was completely spoilt for choice with delicious looking meals!
I was already sold from everything I had seen and read about Stirrups, but when it came to booking my room the price just blew me away… I could get this beautiful hotel near Windsor with acres of manicured gardens, perfect location and theme for the Royal Windsor Horse Show, for as little as £87 per night! I booked with no hesitation and I can’t wait to stay at my perfectly accompanying accommodation for the Royal Windsor Horse Show!
