Looking for a unique Christmas gift which will inspire happy memories?
How about an overnight stay in a baronial Scottish castle with dinner in an AA Rosette restaurant; a bottle of wine on arrival and a bar with a roaring log fire?
Step this way…
This festive Big Deal is for a getaway break at Stonefield Castle Hotel, near Tarbert in Argyll.
Set within 60 acres of woodland gardens, Stonefield Castle Hotel was built in 1837 and many of the beautiful Scottish baronial period features have been retained.
Near to the pretty fishing village of Tarbert, the castle stands high on the famous Kintyre peninsula and has spectacular views over Loch Fyne and the gardens.
Available seven days a week, this fantastic deal comes in two versions. You can choose to stay for one or two nights in a twin/double room at Stonefield Castle with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning.
Each of the 32 rooms is individually decorated and all are ensuite. The hotel offers WiFi.
As part of the offer, a bottle of wine will be waiting for you in your room when you check-in.
On the night of arrival, guests will enjoy a delicious meal in Loch Fyne, the hotel’s AA Rosette restaurant. Guests will receive an allowance of £30 per person, redeemable against dishes from the a la carte menu.
For guests staying two nights, the £30 allowance applies to the first night only.
As part of the Big Deal, guests will dine in the hotel restaurant. The restaurant has been awarded an AA rosette for the high quality of its cooking and locally sourced beef and seafood take pride of place on the menu.
Typical dishes on the regularly changing menu might be the Tarbert bouillabaisse made with baked salmon, haddock, sea bass, mussels, cockles, a langoustine bisque and aioli or the 28-day, aged, beef fillet from Mull.
The only thing that may distract you from the food is the breath-taking view over the loch.
After dinner, you can choose to relax in the traditional elegance of the wood panelled bar and perhaps enjoy a dram by the blazing log fire.
Guests have not been shy about making their views heard on TripAdvisor. This recent contribution says it all:
‘Keep going back for more. This is a beautiful hotel with stunning views, great food and a lovely bar! We have visited on too many occasions to note, got engaged there and will be married there next year. More relaxing than a spa break! Can’t wait to return…’
With vouchers valid for stays until the end of March, this offer really would make for a fairytale Christmas present.
Or you could use it to escape the pre-Christmas madness. Is there someone special you could take away for a castle break between now and Christmas?
