Murder Mystery Weekends

Don your deerstalker for a fun-filled weekend of murder!

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.

Friday, 27th – Sunday, 29th October, 2023



The Ocean Wave is a luxury cruise ship, touring the Mediterranean. When a member of the ship’s entertainment team is reported missing, an extensive search is ordered. Despite probing every nook and cranny, no trace of her can be found. Reluctantly, the Captain, is forced to conclude that she must have gone overboard and has been lost at sea. Shockingly, some passengers, as well as members of the crew, far from feeling deep sorrow at the news of her tragic end in the briny, feel nothing but profound relief. Inevitably, the vital question to be answered is – did she fall or was she pushed!? But old hands at Cottage Hotel Murder Mystery Weekends will already have guessed that of course.
