Along with boats and racehorses, castles are one of those things which are easy to enjoy but a pain to own.
Take up today’s Big Deal on a stay at Stonefield Castle Hotel, near Tarbert, and you can be the king of the castle without having to worry about all the boring stuff like upkeep and dusting.
This fantastic deal comes in two versions. You can choose to stay for one night and enjoy dinner in the hotel’s AA Rosette restaurant followed by a full Scottish breakfast the next morning.
Alternatively, you can stay for two nights on a bed and breakfast basis along with dinner on the first night only.
Set within 60 acres of woodland gardens, Stonefield Castle Hotel was built in 1837 and many of the beautiful original period features have been retained.
Near to the pretty fishing village of Tarbert, the castle stands high on the famous Kintyre peninsula and has spectacular views over Loch Fyne and the gardens.
As part of the Big Deal, guests will enjoy a three course dinner in the hotel restaurant. The restaurant has been awarded an AA rosette for the high quality of its cooking and locally sourced beef and seafood take pride of place on the menu. The only thing that may distract you from the food is the breath-taking view over the loch.
After dinner, you can choose to relax in the traditional elegance of the wood panelled bar and perhaps enjoy a dram by the blazing log fire.
Stonefield Castle Hotel attracts some great reviews. This is what a recent visitor had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘Beautiful setting, pleasant staff, very good food. We stayed here for 2 nights for a short break and very much enjoyed it.
The hotel is in a STUNNING setting on the west shore of Loch Fyne, north of Tarbert.
The staff were friendly and efficient, the food was great, and overall the stay was great…’
