PoB Hotels is Having a Spectacular Summer of Sport

Are you all set for your active summer? Think tennis at Wimbledon, horse racing at Ascot, rowing at Henley and sailing at Cowes Week. And don’t forget the Tour of Britain cycling event, which first began in 1945. For a tiny nation, we really pack a punch when it comes to our sporting heritage.

Don’t just be a spectator though – this summer, PoB Hotels is encouraging everyone to embrace their inner sportsman, and connect with one or more of Britain’s five most-loved sports through PoB Hotels’ extensive offering. Many of its hotels not only enjoy superb facilities but are also set in Britain’s most idyllic locations – ride a bike along a scenic cycle track, sail round our breathtaking coastline, or hit the open moors on horseback.

And because PoB Hotels all have excellent food and rooms, once you’ve worked up an appetite, you can tuck into a delicious dinner before settling down in stylish surroundings.

Victoria Pendleton, former Olympic cycling champion, is leading the way, having just completed her very own PoB break incorporating fitness, kayaking, rowing, horse riding, and of course cycling. Not that you need to be an Olympic super star to take part: there are plenty of opportunities for all levels, whether you want to try a new sport or to pursue one you already love.

Wet and Wild

Britain’s coast was made for a sailing break, with PoB Hotels scattered along its length as well as by lakes and reservoirs. Some have their own boats, or are a short walk from sailing clubs. For the ultimate rowing experience, you can’t beat following in the wake of regattas and races on the Thames.

Saddle Up

Do you prefer two wheels or four legs? It’s a rare PoB Hotel that isn’t near somewhere great for cycling, with either bikes to borrow or nearby cycle-hire outfits so you can tackle everything from flat cycle ways to more hilly terrain. Many are close to stables, too, or might even have their own horses on site.

Perfect Your Forehand

There are tennis courts in PoB Hotels everywhere from Cornwall to Scotland, where you can hit some balls around during a friendly game or perhaps take advantage of some expert tuition. You’ll find hard courts, grass courts of championship standard, and in some cases, both.
