A Murder Mystery Weekend in a great way to turn a short break into a adventure-filled, exciting and social weekend. The fun begins at dinner on the Friday when you watch the drama unfold in the restaurant. The next day you get the chance to interrogate the suspects and look through the supporting documentation. You can even chat with your fellow detectives (who are usually happy to discuss the case). Eventually the killer is unmasked, the winner rewarded and you get to see where you went wrong!

We have Murder Mystery breaks in the spring and autumn so you should be able to find one to fit your schedule.

Wedding in Paradise

A wedding on a Caribbean Island! White coral sand; sparkling turquoise sea; rum punch and steel bands. It doesn’t come any better. The invitations have been sent out. The guests, family and friends, have booked their flights and packed their bikinis and sun cream. Does it all sound too good to be true? What could possibly go wrong? Perhaps they should have watched “Death in Paradise”!,

The Missing Will

When elderly bachelor, Sebastian Hammer, is found dead in his seaside villa, it is initially assumed that he had died of natural causes and his next of kin, a brother, sister and a half sister, plan an appropriate funeral.

However suspicions are aroused when Sebastian’s unconventional next-door neighbour, Kitty Wakefield, starts to pester the local police with outrageous suggestions. The picture is further clouded when no will can be found. The family is sure that Sebastian must have made one, but if so, where is it?

A web of intrigue, lies and deceit begins to emerge causing everyone to look suspiciously at everyone else. Things are very far from what they seem and it is obviously time to send for CHADS . With their finely honed forensic skills they will rapidly solve this case as they have done many others in the past.

For the information of the uninitiated, CHADS is an acronym for - the Cottage Hotel Autumn Detective Squad!,
