Winter in the Clyde Valley is really something special.
The air is crisp and everyone’s in good spirits. It’s enough to make you want to run down a hill singing.
Now imagine yourself in the middle of it all enjoying afternoon tea in a cosy country house hotel with your favourite person, followed by a dip in a warm swimming pool.
Does this sound like your idea of celebrating in style? Then snatch up today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea and leisure club access for two at The Popinjay Hotel & Spa in the Clyde Valley.
Leisure club day with afternoon tea
Built in 1882, The Popinjay Hotel & Spa is a charming, tudor-style country house escape in the little hamlet of Rosebank, a short stroll from the banks of the Clyde.
Just a 25-minute drive from Glasgow, it is also less than an hour from Edinburgh.
Available seven days a week until the end of March 2020, this Big Deal is for afternoon tea for two as well as access to the hotel’s leisure club.
If you are looking for a Christmas gift for a loved one, then this would be ideal.
Sink into the Jacuzzi
The Popinjay’s leisure club includes a 17-meter swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and fully-equipped gym, as well as spa treatment rooms.
Although spa therapies aren’t included in this offer, you might be tempted to treat yourself to a massage or a facial. You can arrange this directly with the hotel.
You will be enjoying afternoon tea for two in the hotel’s restaurant, which offers restful views of the surrounding scenery.
Your spread will include a selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, cakes and scones, accompanied by a freshly brewed pot of tea or coffee.
Vegetarian options are available. If you’d like gluten/wheat-free or vegan choices, please request this directly with the hotel when booking.
Make a day of it
If you want to fit some sightseeing into your day as well, then the New Lanark World Heritage Site is nearby.
Other attractions include Craignethan Castle, Chatelherault Country Park and the Biggar & Upper Clydesdale Museum.
A previous guest at The Popinjay Hotel & Spa posted this review on the hotel’s Facebook page:
‘Went to the Popinjay for a 2 night stay with my sister, was absolutely fantastic, the place had so much charm about it! Reception and restaurant staff were fantastic and helped out with everything we needed. A special thanks to Megan the beauty therapist for our treatments in the spa, was so relaxing and very professional, will definitely be back even if it’s just for food, was amazing and very decent price for great standards, keep up the good work.’
Ideal Christmas gift
If you fancy the idea of escaping the world for the day in a Tudor-style hotel surrounded by Clyde Valley scenery, then now is your chance.
You can float around in the swimming pool, indulge in afternoon tea for two and afterwards, stroll down to the river bank for a scenic winter walk.
Available until the end of March 2020, this would make a perfect Christmas present.
