In three months time, it will be Christmas and now is the time to start laying in…

We’re joking. There is absolutely no need to start thinking about the festive season when there is all of autumn still to enjoy.

Crisp mornings, turning leaves and cosy evenings all mean that autumn is the most romantic of seasons.

Today’s Big Deal with the Mercure Eddlestone Barony Castle Hotel is the spark which can help you make the most of it.

Easy access from Central Belt

Located by Peebles, just seventeen miles south of Edinburgh and within easy reach of Glasgow, the hotel makes a great base from which to explore the beautiful Scottish Borders.

This relaxing autumnal offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a double or twin room with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning.

In addition, guests can look forward to an cream tea as well as making full use of the hotel’s thermal spa experience.

On top of all that, guests can also use a 25% discount on beauty treatments and a 10% discount on dinner.

16th century tower house

Now privately owned, Mercure Eddlestone Barony Castle Hotel & Spa was originally a 16th century tower house built by the Murrays of Blackbarony.

Sitting pretty in 25 acres of lush gardens, the grand exterior still looks like a fairytale castle but the Barony has been considerably altered since then. Not least in the introduction of all the modern comforts which you would expect to find in a 21st century hotel.

There is free WiFi in all of the hotel’s 78 ensuite rooms along with satellite TV and a hot drinks tray.

Thermal Spa

Guests can enjoy full use of the hotel’s leisure facilities including the thermal spa. Featuring a swimming pool, heated loungers, experience showers, swan necks, sauna and spa bath, it’s the perfect place to melt away the stress of everyday life.

The spa also offers a range of spa treatments such as facials, hot stone massage and manicures. Big Deal bookers enjoy a 25% discount on beauty treatments taken during their stay.

Healthy eating

The hotel’s Blue Dug Restaurant is a contemporary space which plays with the building’s past history thanks to little touches like the antler light fittings.

If you choose to take dinner in the restaurant (not included) then you will be well looked after. Serving dishes from around the world, the restaurant has just been given a Healthy Living Award.

Typical dishes include starters such as the wood pigeon on a bed of beetroot and morel mushrooms; the confit duck leg and the traditional prawn cocktail.

Among the main courses, the steaks are always a hit as are the Blue Dug burger and the seared fillet of sea bass on garlic crushed potatoes and steamed greens.

Remember, Big Deal guests can use a 10% discount on food in the Blue Dug.

After eating, guests can enjoy a nightcap in the welcoming bar.

Mountain biking

Mountain biking fans will know the fantastic Glentress woodland trails are a short drive away. The hotel has mountain bikes which are free for guests to use – perfect for exploring the trails in the hotel grounds.

There’s also a games room with a large screen TV, pool table and board games.

Happy guests

Previous guests have been very enthusiastic with the hotel staff often receiving special mention for the warmth of their welcome. This is what a recent guest had to say on TripAdvisor:

‘Romantic stay. We stayed here for my husband’s birthday: we had afternoon tea, evening meal and breakfast while we were there. The food was beautiful and the staff really friendly. The room was clean and spacious. Very nice. We walked around the castle and the views are amazing. This place is gorgeous. Well worth a look. We will return at some point in the future.’

If you would like to kindle a little romance for your autumn then book up today’s Big Deal and get ready to relax.
