It’s very chilly outside and sometimes we need to think of special treats to make us feel better.
The way to do this is with a very special treat in a country house setting, in this instance, Hetland Hall Hotel near Gretna Green.
With today’s Big Deal, you and a special person can enjoy the hotel’s afternoon tea for two, available seven days a week.
Valid to the end of March, this Big Deal from Hetland Hall Hotel near Carrutherstown, Dumfries would make a sweet present.
You could gift it to a friend or use it as a promise to spoil a loved one. Know any aunts or friends of the family who would love to be taken out for a drive with afternoon tea?
Tea, cake and company
It is a very straightforward offer.
Available seven days from 2.30pm to 5pm, the offer is for two people to have afternoon tea at Hetland Hall Hotel.
We’re talking a selection of freshly prepared finger sandwiches, warm scones with cream and preserves, and a variety of cakes and sweet delights.
There’s also an option to include a glass of fizz each (although, if someone’s driving, they can change this to a soft drink).
Afterwards, you could stroll across the hotel’s lovely grounds or drive to Gretna Green, world capital of romance – don’t argue with us, Paris – for a bit of sightseeing.
Hetland Hall Hotel is a graceful Georgian country house hotel in eighteen acres of tranquil, private parkland – the perfect place to escape the city.
Situated just outside Dumfries and fifteen minutes from Gretna Green, it has a gorgeous setting and even offers views of two countries for the price of one, with vistas extending over the Solway Firth to the Lakeland peaks.
The local region has many charms, from the grandeur of Caerlaverock Castle and a nearby Red Kite trail to the historic Burns trail in and around Dumfries. Ideal if you want to make a day of it.
Idyllic day out
With a country house setting to enjoy plus the shops and sights of Gretna to explore, this would make a lovely day out with a friend or family member.
It would also make a thoughtful birthday gift or a surprise treat for someone who deserves to be spoiled.
A little countryside drive followed by afternoon tea and a chat. We’re in!
