We have less than a month to go until Christmas.
If you are anything like the Big Deal staff then your presents-to-buy list probably still has some troublesome gaps.
Happily today’s Big Deal on a stay at the popular Best Western Dryfesdale Country House Hotel in Lockerbie could be just the sort of gorgeous gift you are looking for.
With vouchers valid from today until the end of February 2015, this Big Deal could also be used for a pre-Christmas break – recharging the batteries before the fun starts is always a smart idea.
Set in acres of magnificent grounds with stunning views of the beautiful Scottish countryside, the four star Dryfesdale Country House Hotel is the perfect location for a romantic getaway.
Under an hour and a quarter from Glasgow and just over 90 minutes from Edinburgh, the Dryfesdale has all the character you would expect of a building which dates back to 1762.
Naturally, it also has all of the comforts and modern features expected of a highly rated, modern country house hotel.
Available seven days
Available seven days a week, option one is for a couple to enjoy an overnight stay in a double or twin room at the Dryfesdale. As well as a full Scottish breakfast in the morning, guests will also enjoy a cream tea and glass of Prosecco when they arrive.

Previous visitors have loved the Best Western Dryfesdale Hotel. It scores over 4/5 on TripAdvisor and this is what a recent and very chuffed guest had to say after a stay:
‘Absolutely brilliant… From the first instant we arrived, they couldn’t do enough for us. We had a ground floor room because we had a dog. It was huge, but very comfortable, overlooking the lovely grounds. There was every thing we needed. The shower was the best ever!! We were with friends… We all had an enjoyable meal in the restaurant, and the staff were helpful and attentive. There was a wide choice for breakfast… We would highly recommend this hotel and will return in the future.’
