This was a 1-night break away for my wife and me to celebrate our wedding anniversary. With a warm welcome to the wonderful Scaurbridge House by Elizabeth-Ann, we immediately began to do that most precious of things - actually relax and unwind properly.
The house is set in a beautiful part of the world and we highly recommend the river walk which is literally just up the road. This had to be taken because of the outstanding breakfast served the next morning. We had enjoyed an excellent dinner in Thornhill the previous evening - but we (just) managed to do this justice. The scones are superb and you really do need to make room for one ... or two.
Our only regret is not staying for a second night, as that would have been ideal to enjoy the hospitality and area all the more and properly unwind and recharge. And you do have to go to appreciate the "loo with a view" ....
Finally, and every bit as importantly, Elizabeth-Ann also made Digby, our (at the time) 10-month old Airedale, every bit as welcome. He didn't disgrace himself either (fortunately) but it was superb he could join us for our trip away and the walk the next day.
