Like battery-operated Christmas gifts on the day after Boxing Day, it’s easy to run out of get up and go juice. And, whether you are an adult or a fractious toddler, when that happens, tantrums and tears are sure to follow.
Body-swerve stress and avoid throwing your toys out of the pram by relaxing with today’s Big Deal at Strathblane Country House Hotel in Stirlingshire.
Perfect for a pre-Christmas break or even the ideal way to wind down after the busy festive period, today’s Big Deal means you can live like a laird for £59.
Built in 1874 as a family home, Strathblane Country House Hotel offers the type of warm welcome and personal service that you would expect from a family-run business.
The hotel has kept its Victorian character, especially when it comes to age old pleasures such as enjoying a dram by the log fire, but it also offers comfortable, elegant and individually designed rooms in which to forget about the rat race.
Only half an hour from Glasgow or Stirling but with an eye candy backdrop of the Campsie Fells, Dumgoyne and Ben Lomond, the hotel is ideal for anyone keen to breathe deep of fresh country air and say ‘Whatever’ to the city smog.
Each of the bedrooms has their own unique character and they are kitted out with en-suite facilities as well as a touch dial telephone, colour TV, Freeview channels, iron and ironing board, tea and coffee making facilities and hair dryer.
When you are in the Scottish countryside, nothing tastes better than Scottish food. The Strathblane’s kitchens source only the freshest Scottish produce and guarantee that their beef is 100% Aberdeen Angus. For guests who like our finny friends, fresh fish is delivered daily.
The Big Deal includes your choice of breakfasts ranging from the full Scottish to a continental breakfast or try the smoked salmon or smoked haddock.
Why not make a day of it? Strathblane Country House Hotel is close to today’s other Big Deal, Glengoyne Distillery – combined they make for a great break away!
