Sunset over Braemar
Hi John and Marilyn, Alastair and I bought Cranford in February 2010, and are now entering our 6th season..! We hope to be here for many years to come. I'm not sure who owned the Guest House in 2006; there were a lot of changes in ownership over that time. We would be really pleased to have you and your family to stay; our accommodation now comprises: 1 small twin ensuite 1 twin/kingsize ensuite 1 double ensuite 1 twin with private bathroom 1 family room ensuite (1 double and 1 or 2 singles) As you can see, we couldn't accommodate you all but extra accommodation can be found close by. We are already fully booked from 3rd - 7th September this year as the Braemar Gathering is always the first weekend in September. Let us know when you have more idea of when you would like to come and we can check our availability. Kind regards, Sarah and Alastair You can find our website if you search for Cranford Guest House Braemar, it won't let me add a link in this reply..
