Crisp winter walks are always welcome.
Especially when you top them off by warming your bones in front of a roaring log fire.
Spark up a cosy winter break with this Big Deal on a getaway from Ballathie House Hotel.
Ballathie House is something of a star of the Scottish hospitality industry, racking up the awards. It’s easy to see why.
Dating from 1880, the country house hotel combines Victorian baronial splendour with a very contemporary approach to comfort. The tranquil grounds of the private riverside estate offer the perfect option for a relaxed stay.
Available seven days a week, today’s Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a one or two night stay in a Classic or Riverside bedroom at Ballathie House, with full Scottish breakfast and a bottle of wine on arrival.
The hotel’s bedrooms are individually-styled, combining traditional country house period décor with modern touches; trouser press, hairdryer, telephone, Freeview TV, WiFi and tea and coffee facilities.
Note there is a £40 supplement per room, per night for Friday and Saturday night stays, payable directly to the hotel.
Among the hotel’s accolades are a couple of AA rosettes for the dining. The restaurant has views over the Tay, and the menus reflect the best of local and seasonal produce.
Head Chef Scott Scorer offers a contemporary take on classic cuisine, with lunch and dinner menus that change daily. Expect local venison, woodland game, trout and salmon, Scottish beef and seasonal produce to crop up regularly on the menus.
Dinner is not included, but guests should note due to the popularity of the restaurant and the limited spaces available, the hotel strongly advise that you reserve a table for dinner prior to arrival in order to avoid disappointment.
