SPONSORED: 6 reasons you should book a Stobo spa break

Post Thumbnail

Located in the Peeblesshire countryside is a luxury retreat like no other in Scotland – Stobo Castle!

It is Scotland’s only destination spa, so as the world gets busier and more stressful for us all, there really is nowhere else you should choose to escape to.

Besides Stobo Castle’s award-winning spa, it also offers excellent service, fine food and peaceful surroundings, not to mention a not-to-be-missed special offer if you book your visit between May and September (more details below).

Here we bring you six reasons why you should book a spa break at Stobo:

1) It has one of the most amazing hotel rooms in Scotland:

You may struggle to find a more amazing hotel room that Stobo Castle’s Cashmere Suite. It is considered to be the most opulent suite in the land – its bedroom has not one but two four-poster beds – each with integrated plasma screen TVs; it has cashmere wallpaper; and it has a free-standing bath like no other in the huge bathroom. Plus, on arrival you will receive a complimentary bottle of Bollinger, Stobo chocolates, slippers, bottled water and bowl of fresh fruit! There is a special offer if you book to stay here between May and September, click here to find out how you can save £24 per person per night. To go on a 360-degree virtual tour of the Cashmere Suite, click here.

2) Its spa is state-of-the-art:

Stobo is home to Scotland’s only 25m ozone treated swimming pool (which means the pool water is healthy and crystal clear without the chlorine-related problems). It also benefits from three hot tubs outside, one of the most advanced hydrospas of its kind and, less than three years ago, Stobo launched its new mixed steam room which enjoys views of the pool (pictured below) and landscaped gardens outside. You can opt for mixed facilities or enjoy use of the Ladies Health Suite.

3) There’s a new cocktail lounge:

The So Stobo Cocktail Lounge has been in the pipeline for some time – and it is now open! Seating around 50-plus guests, the cocktail lounge has more than 30 different cocktails on offer, including Stobo Signatures, like a Raspberry Collins and a Stobo Delight, then there’s Prosecco Cocktails, Tropical Cocktails and Mocktails for just £4.50. Gin fans will be delighted to hear there’s a separate gin menu, plus the lounge overlooks the pool and boasts views of the Peeblesshire countryside, making it the perfect place to chill out before or after your spa visit.

4) It’s Mothers’ Day soon:

There is no greater feeling than surprising someone you love with a gift they are not expecting – gift vouchers for Stobo Castle will have this affect. With Mothers’ Day just two weeks away (March 31), you may still be looking for a suitable gift. What about giving mum the ‘Stobo experience’? There is no one who deserves to be pampered more. Click here to be taken to the Stobo Castle website to buy a gift voucher now.

5) There’s a very tempting special summer offer:

Relax, unwind and enjoy a little luxury for less than you thought because if you book a short break at Stobo Castle midweek between May and September, then you will be offered a discount of £24 per person per night. The deal includes: luxurious accommodation; a three-course dinner, full Scottish breakfast, and three course lunch; unlimited use of the spa facilities; guided walks of the Japanese Water Gardens; and complimentary slippers and use of fluffy bathrobes. Prices per person per night start at just £125* (for the Castle Lodge) and up to £275* (for the Cashmere Suite) *based on two sharing. To take advantage of this special offer for summer 2019, click here to find out more.

6) There are peaceful surroundings – inside and out:

Located on a hill in the Scottish Borders, Stobo Castle is shaded by trees and a stone’s throw away from the River Tweed, so the picturesque scenery makes Stobo the perfect place for a relaxing retreat. However long you stay, whether it’s an afternoon or a couple of days, you will quickly forget about any stresses back home, as the peaceful surroundings inside and out give you total escapism.
