19th – 22nd October 2012

November 11, 2012 by in

We organised a break here just a day or so before arriving.  We were due to fly to New Zealand on Friday 19th Oct but had to cancel at the 11th hour.  Our visit here was to allow us to get away, help get over the disappointment of not going to New Zealand and to help us recharge our batteries for challenges ahead.  Glenfruin Lodge has played a pivotol role in helping us unwind, enjoy a good sleep and celebrate our great love for each other.  The Lodge is beautiful, relaxing and everthing we needed at this moment.

Thank you for allowing us to stay here at such short notice.  The break has been perfect for us… the right place at the right time.
