Christmas Package

What We Offer >> Christmas Package

The Great Escape

Escape the ringing telephone, traffic jams, and all the hurly-burly of Christmas. Unwind in the peace of Gelston, with bracing walks in the fresh Galloway air, full-length baths, log fires ...

Uh oh - problem with going away: what to do about a Christmas tree, turkey, etc.? We've thought of that. Leave it to us.

What's in the weekly package

  • Top class Christmas tree, grown locally (worth 45 - 55): we normally get fragrant Fraser Fir or Nordmann Fir.
  • Tree decorations - a big smart box for you to play with (or we can do the decorating for you if you prefer).
  • Turkey (worth 75): we get Bronze Turkeys (the best), reared naturally, weight normally about 13 - 14 lbs (6 kg); we can usually supply a beef or lamb alternative on request. Not offered for short breaks - see below.
  • A good bottle of wine or Port. Not offered for short breaks - see below.
  • Get off work earlier, and get up to 2 extra days free! Avoid the last minute traffic rush! Discover the local shops ...

Short breaks (less than a week)

  • 6 nights: you're better off paying the weekly rate and getting all the above extras free (even if you don't actually stay the 7th night)!
  • 4 or 5 nights: the tree & decorations will be included free; turkey and wine/Port can be supplied at a preferential rate.

Please note: minimum booking 4 nights at Christmas and New Year.

Smoked salmon buying service

We can also obtain for you good quality smoked salmon from local fishmonger Thomas Dingwall - but sadly no longer line-caught in local rivers, as the Scottish Government has decreed that fish can no longer be taken in that way.
