Much like Morecambe and Wise (but with worse gags), the 5pm Big Deal is here to bring you sunshine, make you happy and even bring you rainbows from the skies.
OK, maybe not the rainbows but we can certainly brighten up the early part of next year with a cracking midweek dinner, bed and breakfast stay at the enchanting Rufflets Country House Hotel in St Andrews.
Set in ten acres of sculpted gardens, Rufflets Country House Hotel is a turreted mansion house located just minutes from the golf courses and beaches of St Andrews.
As well as being awarded 4 Red Stars by the AA and 4 Gold Stars by Visit Scotland, Rufflets is a member of Best Loved Hotels and is recognised by the Automobile Association as one of the top 200 hotels in Britain and among the top ten hotels in Scotland.
Individually designed rooms
Today’s Big Deal is for an overnight stay (Sun-Thu) for two people in a classic twin or double room. All the rooms are individually styled and tastefully decorated. Some have whirlpool spa baths and power showers. All are ensuite and feature luxury Molton Brown toiletries.
The Terrace Restaurant at Rufflets produces seasonal menus using organic and locally sourced fresh Scottish produce wherever possible including quality aged Scotch beef, locally reared lamb and venison, fish and seafood landed daily at East Neuk harbours.
The Big Deal is for a full Scottish breakfast and a three course table d’hote dinner for two.
Golf is the big draw at St Andrews but not by any means the only one. Historic houses, magnificent beaches and outdoor activities such as horse riding or quad biking are all in easy reach.
Great gift idea
Today’s Big Deal runs from the 20th of January until the 31st of March. It would make a generous Christmas gift or a hugely enjoyable getaway break to brighten the early part of your 2012.
