The American comic George Burns once quipped that ‘Happiness was having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city’.
Escape the city (and possibly your family) with today’s brilliant Big Deal on a 2 night mini-break at Birchbrae Lodges by Fort William.
The four star lodges are located eight miles south of Fort William, a.k.a. the Outdoor Capital of Scotland.
The surrounding Lochaber area is made up of soaring mountains; sparkling burns; deep, mysterious lochs and a wild rugged coastline. Whether you prefer mountain biking or Munro-bagging; distillery visits or island hopping; skiing or simply sitting on the veranda reading, it is all on the doorstep at Birchbrae Lodges.
The offer is for up to four people to spend two consecutive nights in one of the seven Birchbrae lodges. For a supplement (see fine print), the deal can be extended to include extra guests, extra nights, pets and weekend stays.
The seven lodges are the perfect place to come home to after a full day’s activity. Ideal for family holidays or breaks with friends, they all have three bedrooms with two bathrooms – one with bath and shower and one with shower only.
All lodges have a large lounge with comfy modular sofas, footstools and a surround sound home cinema TV system. A DVD and CD library is provided.
There is a dining area in each lodge with seating for six and an oak topped table plus a fully fitted, well equipped modern kitchen.
Each lodge has toasty electric heating throughout and each radiator can be independently controlled. All electricity, heating, broadband access, linen and towel sets are also included.
Some of Scotland’s finest scenery surrounds the Birchbrae Lodges but, for rainy days, this offer includes unlimited free access to the swimming pool, sauna and spa at the Ben Nevis Leisure Club in Fort William.
Golfers can also enjoy a free game of golf (club hire not included) at the nine-hole Dragon’s Tooth Golf Course in Ballachulish.
Today’s Big Deal with Birchbrae Lodges would make a great winter break for friends and family or a welcome Christmas gift for a mini-break in the early part of 2013. The vouchers are valid until the 22nd of March 2013.
Birchbrae Lodges has a great write up on TripAdvisor. This is what one user wrote about their stay:
‘Beautiful clean accommodation with all of the facilities that you could wish for. Made full use of the information centre which was full of DVD’s, board games and information leaflets. Superb walks from the back of the log cabins and within easy reach of Inchree Waterfalls which was well worth the walk. My eight year old daughter loved exploring around the lodges to look at the birds and wildlife. Just a short walk up the hill we saw a deer only a few feet away from us which was an amazing sight. Lovely warm accommodation in a quiet location but within a ten minute drive of Fort William.’
