Break down

With the credit crunch in full swing most readers are no doubt thinking of cutting back when it comes to their holidays. So if you\'re looking for a break in tune with our newly modest world, you could be in for a treat.

Worth Abbey in Sussex is offering weekend breaks for those who like their fun on the serious side.

Run by Friar Luke Jolly – Jolly by name but clearly not by nature – the break features 6.20am starts and silent mealtimes. Mole thinks he’ll stick with his budget weekend at Butlins.
