Panto season is in full swing and the theatres are full of benevolent godmothers, malevolent step sisters and heaven-sent Princes.
With today’s Big Deal, you can sweep your Prince or Princess off their feet for a fairytale getaway in a real life castle.
Today’s offer is with Knock Castle Hotel and Spa in Crieff – a cosy base from which to explore Perthshire and also a relaxing venue for those who would prefer to just chill.
Enjoying panoramic views of its woodland grounds and Perthshire hills, Knock Castle Hotel and Spa is only a short drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh but its tranquil surrounds mean that it seems worlds away from the stress of the Central Belt.
Valid Sunday to Thursday, this Big Deal is for an overnight B&B stay in a Lomond Room within the main building or in one of the deluxe rooms in the Castle Lodge, which sits 200 yards through the hotel’s gardens.
Designed in the same luxurious style as the main building, the Lodge’s vast rooms are ideal for a couple looking to get away from it all and the building also features a cosy lounge, dining room and a lift to all floors.
A bottle of wine in your room on arrival will help you to settle in.
A full Scottish breakfast is part of the deal as is a 30 minute spa treatment for each guest. Choose between a back, neck & shoulder massage or mini facial.
The offer also give guests full use of the gym and pool complex which offers a wide range of facilities including sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and spa bath. The heated indoor pool has relaxing views onto the hotel’s wooded gardens.
Discount on further spa treatments
If you would like to indulge in more treatments from the spa therapists such as a deep thermal therapy, manicure or sea mud therapy wrap, then this offer entitles you to a 20% discount on the standard price.
Simply book the additional treatments when reserving your room.
As mentioned, a full Scottish breakfast is included in the deal and, if you also decide to take other meals at the hotel, then you can enjoy the superb views from the new Rooftop Restaurant.
Other options include fine dining in the Oak Restaurant (open Thursday to Sunday) or an informal meal in the Knock Castle Bar.
Freshly cooked, local produce takes pride of place on the menus.
Guests may also venture out onto the Rooftop Terrace to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink.
Knock Castle Hotel and Spa has earned lots of glowing reviews. These comments come from a recent TripAdvisor review:
‘Really lovely place – very comfortable and cosy surroundings (the lounge area is gorgeous). Staff very friendly and attentive, pleasant pool area (almost deserted every time we used it, so we mostly had it to ourselves!), and set in beautiful gardens. The restaurant has gorgeous views and the food is good quality… I also had a couple of spa treatments which were blissful, especially the 45 minute back, neck and shoulder massage with therapist Leanne, which I can honestly say was one of the best I’ve ever had: very relaxing but also a very efficient working out of the substantial knots I was carrying around with me…’
Vouchers for this overnight stay at Knock Castle Hotel and Spa are valid until the end of March 2015.
This big Deal would make a very welcome Christmas present. A little luxury jaunt up to Crieff would get anyone’s 2015 off to a very enjoyable start.
