Bring in 2012 with celebrations in Berkshire says JANE MEMMLER
HERE'S an idea to satisfy even the most ardent bah humbugs on New Year's Eve: The sumptuous Sanctum Soho Hotel, London and its sister property, Sanctum on the Green in Berkshire, are planning a very rock 'n' roll New Year. Start the evening in style with a glass of bubbly as you take in London's spectacular skyline from the Sanctum's intimate roof terrace.
So much more townhouse than hotel, with just 30 individually styled rooms, it is the perfect guilty pleasure to see off the end of the year.

Some of the rooms have walls covered in smoky textured fabrics with mirrored wardrobes; others are more of a Rococo style with luscious velvet furnishings and padded headboards.
Next, you'll be whisked away by car to the Sanctum On The Green in Cookham Dean where you'll really get the party started.
The chic, rustic decor of the hotel, with its exposed beams, open fireplaces and leather Chesterfields lends just the right amount of atmosphere for an indulgent evening of fabulous food, wine and entertainment.
At the stroke of midnight you could welcome in the New Year with a dip in the outdoor heated pool.
Now that's rock 'n' roll.
Sanctum on the Green (01628 482638/sanctumonthegreen.com) offers the New Year's Eve 2011 Pool House Party Package from 235pp (six sharing). Price includes a welcome drink at Sanctum Soho, car transfer from London to Sanctum On The Green and return the following day, dinner with a glass of champagne and accommodation in the pool house wing, B&B.
