Why are bad golfers experts at carving turkey?
Because they can slice with their eyes closed.
We’ve got plenty more where that came from but suspect you might prefer to learn more about this golf-friendly offer.
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 testing, par 70 parkland course is suitable for all standards of golfer.
Not only can guest enjoy unlimited rounds on the Estate course. They can also benefit from special rates at the Roxburghe golf club and there are many other courses to play nearby: Cardrona, Torwoodlee, Hirsel, Minto, Hawick, Duns, Peebles and many more.
Not just golf
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.
Christmas gift idea
This offer would make a welcome Christmas gift for a winter or early spring break with family or friends.
Weekend options are available from early November until the end of March. Midweek options are available through to April.
The early months of the year are less foreboding when you have a Borders break to look forward to.
With six options, this Big Deal is very flexible.
Option one is for a two night weekend stay (Friday to Sunday or Saturday to Monday) and option two is for a two night midweek stay (Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday) in the Tower, North or South Barn.
These semi-detached properties sleep up to four – the Tower has one twin room and one double with a four poster bed, and the North and South Barns have two double or twin ensuite bedrooms.
Option three is for a two night weekend stay (Friday to Sunday or Saturday to Monday) and option four is for a two night midweek stay (Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday) 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 two night weekend stay (Friday to Sunday or Saturday to Monday) and option six is for a two night midweek stay (Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday) 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 these. We have edited them for length:
‘Weekend break. Stayed for two nights in one of the houses on the estate. House was detached and very well appointed with all home comforts. The club house is great for breakfast and evening meal with staff that are second to none. The area was snow covered while we were there and sledges were offered up for the kids to enjoy. Not long before a ski slope was developed and the kids had a great time. Without doubt what makes this place is the staff engagement and helpfulness of all. Good Points – Everything. Bad Points – None experienced. Would I stay here again – Most definitely.’
‘Great midweek break… using a voucher. Excellent value for money in comfortable accommodation and a really enjoyable time at the Woll, where we golfed on two days. Would recommend the restaurant, which offers good quality home cooking at very reasonable prices, with efficient and pleasant service.’
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.
As we noted earlier, with validity to late April 2020, it would also make for a generous Christmas present.
