6th – 13th January 2013

February 17, 2013 by in

We’ve had a wonderful and very relaxing week here at Glenfruin Lodge.  It was a very special place in which to spend our ‘honeymoon’.  The card and sparkling wine were much appreciated on our arrival.

Despite the rain and fog in the early part of the week we enjoyed some beautiful drives and managed to get some walking in.

The Lodge is lovely and very comfortable and we’ve enjoyed some cosy nights in together.

Thanks for a great stay!
