There are some things where one would be too few and three would be too many but two is just right. Dry Martinis and ears spring to mind. One Martini isn’t enough and three ears are too many.
For some people, two is the perfect number of nights for a short break.
By curious coincidence, today’s Big Deal with Tinto House Hotel is for a relaxing two night mini break: the perfect way to unwind after the hectic festive season.
Just 40 minutes from Glasgow or Edinburgh, Tinto House Hotel sits in five acres of beautiful, peaceful grounds at Symington, near Biggar, in the Scottish Borders.
The hotel was established in 1914 and it still has the elegance and style of that bygone era but with all the comfort and convenience of a modern hotel.
Fully refurbished a couple of years ago, the hotel retains charming period features such as its glorious stained glass windows and the penny farthing bike which hangs on one wall.
The 39 ensuite rooms are stylishly decorated and many have splendid views of the rolling Borders countryside.
Two night stay
Today’s Big Deal is for a relaxing two night break for two people at the Tinto House Hotel. It includes a full Scottish breakfast which should leave you feeling fortified to explore the surrounding area.
Historical abbeys, castles, gardens and the New Lanark World Heritage site are all within easy striking distance.
Murder mystery nights
Tinto House Hotel holds regular Murder Mystery nights throughout the year. For an additional £19.50 per person, you can enjoy a three course dinner and what Inspector Taggart used to call a ‘murrrrderrrr’.
