Murder Mystery Weekend at Crathorne Hall Hotel
March 9 @ 3:00 pm - March 10 @ 12:00 pm£180 – £220.00
Step into the elegance and excitement of a murder mystery weekend at Crathorne Hall Hotel as we take you back to the 1930s and the golden age of mystery in March 2019.
Twins Greta and Ottilie Lovelace are about to turn 21 and you’re invited to the weekend celebrations. Greta is about to inherit the family fortune from Aunt Edna on the twins’ birthday but it seems someone has other ideas!
A murder, a marriage and a will are the perfect ingredients for our murder mystery weekend at Crathorne Hall Hotel, near Yarm, and as the tension mounts you must uncover the killer.
Meet the shady suspects over a delicious cream tea on Saturday afternoon where you’ll discover a crime already committed. Prepare yourselves for dinner or take the chance to grab a quiet word with your suspects. Over dinner the excitement continues and you may find your favourite suspect could just be the next victim.
Then join us for breakfast where the detective will take charge of the situation and you will (hopefully) solve the case with prizes for our top detectives.
Our murder mystery weekend at Crathorne Hall Hotel is reminiscent of the golden era of murder mysteries as we set it in the 1930s.
You’ll enjoy beautiful surroundings, a cream tea, three course dinner and breakfast with a one night stay in one of the gorgeous rooms along with our entertainment for just £180. Additional nights can be booked with the hotel direct if you wish to arrive the night before.
About Crathorne Hall Hotel
Crathorne Hall was built between 1903 and 1906, so our 1930s storyline fits in perfectly with the beautiful location, and it was home to the Dugdale family.
It as designed with 115 rooms, 41 of which were bedrooms, and there were 26 live-in servants who occupied the servants wing.
Rumour has it that the size of the house reflected the ambitions of Violet Dugdale to launch her son into politics and her daughter into an advantageous marriage and she certainly succeeded as her daughter, Beryl, married the Earl of Rothes in 1926 at Crathorne. Violet’s son, Thomas, became the Conservative MP for Richmondshire in 1929.
Now the hall is a luxury hotel but still keeps its character and has nods to its past.
About our murder mystery
You are guests at the 21st birthday celebrations of Greta and Ottilie Lovelace but this wonderful occasion is overshadowed by the sudden death of the girls’ aunt, Edna Lovelace, six months earlier. As the family struggle to come to terms with Edna’s death, Greta must comply with her aunt’s wish that she should be engaged to be married before she turns 21 if she is to inherit the large family fortune.
The problem is that Greta has no one she wants to marry and she is certainly not impressed with the suggestions of her stepmother.
What happens to the Lovelace fortune if Greta isn’t engaged to be married within 24 hours? And what if Greta doesn’t make it to her 21st birthday?
We suggest you come along, follow the clues and find out!
Places for our detectives are £180 each and include a one night stay in this fabulous hotel with a cream tea, dinner and breakfast the following morning and our entertainment from arrival until 11am the next morning.
