February Half Term 2018: Last few spaces up for grabs!
7th December, 2017
Often find yourself dreading the long months in the run up to Spring? Why not change that and give yourself something to look forward to… We’ve still got a few spaces left over the February half term in our beautiful cedar cabins. Sleeping up to two adults and two children in absolute luxury, they are the perfect winter escape… Curl up by the wood burning stove with an old favourite board game or brave the cold and head out on a brisk walk through the beautiful landscape we like to call Loose Reins country. Do something, do nothing. It’s up to you.
Our Favourite Winter Activities in Loose Reins Country…
28th November, 2017
Toast marshmallows on the fire bowl, snug in a woollen blanket… We can’t think of a better way to spend a clear winter’s evening than wrapped up by the fire, sipping hot chocolate and toasting marshmallows under the stars… Rediscover an old favourite board game… We’ve got Monopoly, Scrabble, Snakes and Ladders and all the classics. Snapchat might be great but you can’t beat the feeling of Dad landing on Mayfair when you’ve just put up that hotel…

It’s been a fantastic half term down in Loose Reins country; filled with new and familiar faces. We’ve had families from Manchester to Cornwall and some as local as Poole!
