Before the invention of the shirt and tie in 1820, there was no such thing as work and, as such, people didn’t need to go on holiday.
Unfortunately the rise of office wear prompted a corresponding increase in offices and from there it was all down hill to the desk-bound working week which we are all subject to now.
Return to those pre-work glory days with today’s Big Deal and an overnight holiday break at the rather spiffy East Haugh House Hotel in the Perthshire Highlands.
Built originally as part of the Atholl Estate some 350 years ago, East Haugh House is a beautiful, turreted stone house set in two acres of gardens.
Privately owned, the romantic four star hotel has scooped multiple awards for its food, hospitality and its fishing.
Its thirteen individually designed rooms have their own character and epitomise the style of a small, exclusive sporting lodge in its Victorian heyday, but with all the latest creature comforts that the non-Victorian guest could wish for.
All have luxuriously appointed ensuite bathrooms, flat screen TVs; DVD players; fluffy bath linen, Molton Brown toiletries and eye-caressing views of the Tummel Valley.
Three of the four bedrooms even have four poster beds.
The hotel’s award-winning Two Sisters restaurant, run by chef patron Neil McGown, makes the most of local produce including West Coast seafood and, when in season, game.
The local area offers superb fishing on the River Tay and there are fantastic golfing opportunities nearby.
Today’s Big Deal includes discounts on both activities when arranged through the hotel. XXXXXXXXX
East Haugh House has quite a fan base. This is what some previous guests had to say:
‘Mike and I would like to thank Neil, Lesley, Sophie and all the staff at East Haugh for looking after us again. We had a fantastic time and as usual, came home with happy minds and full bellies! Kindest regards
Amanda & Mike Ainsley
‘I would like to say a huge thank-you to everyone at East Haugh House, extremely friendly and courteous staff, nothing ever too much trouble. The quality of the rooms (especially the Jacuzzi baths!!), the food… everything was just superb. Once again a big thank-you and we look forward to returning in the future.’
