A few hundred years back, the Scottish Borders was an unruly region best known for bandits, cattle rustlers and fierce raiding parties.
These days in the Borders, more scores are settled on the golf course than the battle field.
Tee up a relaxing Borders break with today’s Big Deal on a stay in the picturesque New Woll Estate near Selkirk.
The offer includes unlimited golf on the estate’s beautiful 18-hole golf course – The Woll.
The par 70 parkland course is suitable for all standards of golfer.
Of course, if golf is not your cup of tea then the surrounding area is packed with lots of other opportunities for fun activities ranging from country walks and horse riding to stately home visits and mountain biking.
With vouchers valid until the 31st January 2016, this offer is available as six options.
Option one is for a three night weekend stay (Fri-Mon) and option two is for a four night weekday stay (Mon-Fri) in the Tower, North or South Barn. These semi-detached properties sleep up to four with two double or twin ensuite bedrooms.
Option three is for a three night weekend stay (Fri-Mon) and option four is for a four night weekday stay (Mon-Fri) in the East or West Granary. Again, these are semi-detached properties with two double/twin en-suite bedrooms and they sleep up to four people.
Both the East and West Granary also have their own sauna – perfect after a tough round of golf or a satisfyingly long ramble.
Option five is for a three night weekend stay (Fri-Mon) and option six is for a four night weekday stay (Mon-Fri) in New Woll House.
A redesigned Scottish farmhouse, this detached property sleeps up to six in three double/twin en-suite bedrooms.
All of the accommodation options are equipped and decorated to four star standard. They all have views of the golf course and surrounding countryside.
Fitted with natural materials such as real wood floors, slate and marble tiling plus leather sofas, they are cosy and comfortable homes where you can relax with friends and family.
The lodges have fully equipped kitchens. Of course, guests are also welcome to eat in The Woll Restaurant or Bar 19.
Both are open to everyone and serve everything from bacon rolls and scones in the morning to relaxed lunches and sumptuous dinners.
New Woll Estate has hosted many happy guests as demonstrated by TripAdvisor reviews such as this:
‘Fantastic golf course and accommodation.’
Their Facebook visitors have also been quick to sing the Estate’s praises:
‘What a fabulous week. We were blessed with beautiful weather so managed to golf every day (inclusive with the accommodation). The course is gorgeous with a tricky 17th! Absolutely loved it. The Tower was lovely, quirky, and great views.’
This Big Deal would be perfect for a pre-Christmas getaway with friends or family. Around an hour from either Glasgow or Edinburgh, New Woll Estate is very convenient for a short break.
With vouchers valid until the end of January 2016, it would also make for a generous Christmas present.
A Borders break is always a welcome find on Christmas morning.
