Start The New Year With a Visit To Cheltenham


Visit Cheltenham to start the New Year in style with a stay in one of our luxury self-catered apartments. This beautiful spa town is the ideal base to visit the surrounding area. 

Raise a glass to 2014 with friends and relatives as large and enthusiastic crowds flock to the racecourse on News Years Day, with festive fresh air, fantastic racing and an atmosphere second to none, and then retire back to the luxury of one of our centrally located serviced apartments.

Festival trials day takes place on January 25th - arguably the best one-day Jump race meeting anywhere in the UK, with top class action unfolding during every race and notable pointers of horses to follow at the upcoming Festival in March. 

From January 10th, visit The Rococo Gardens in Painswick which has one of the largest naturalistic plantings of snowdrops in the country and is in many ways the spiritual home of Galanthus Atkinsii. Although many believe the Romans introduced snowdrops they are more likely to have been brought to England in the early 16th Century.  Galanthus Nivalis is native to a large tract of mainland Europe from the Pyrenees in the west, through France and Germany to Poland in the north, Italy, Northern Greece and European Turkey. Most of the other species Galanthus come from the eastern Mediterranean, though several are found in South Russia, Georgia and Azerbaijan. Galanthus Fosteri comes from Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey and Israel.

In Gloucester from Friday 24 – 26 January the Cajun and Zydeco Festival 2014 will be taking place. The biggest festival of its kind in the UK, the Gloucester Cajun & Zydeco Festival brings the best bands and musicians from around the world to the city for a weekend of non-stop partying, music, dancing, workshops, authentic Cajun cuisine and an atmosphere that’s become legendary on the international Cajun & Zydeco scene.

Why not treat yourself to a relaxing weekend away after the hustle and bustle of Christmas. Portland Apartments are running a special offer for our luxury serviced apartments, book any 2 night weekend break staying during January, February or March and receive a complimentary bottle of champagne and luxury box of chocolates.
