Hot tubs+champagne=perfect combination!

The Garden Suites are particularly exciting offering accessible accommodation and/or dog friendly. After doing extensive research, Alan & Suzanne noticed there was a lack of luxury accessible accommodation in the Southern Lakes and so the Garden Suites were born.

 

And dog friendly doesn’t get much more luxurious either. Four legged friends can pre-order food and treats for the stay and the private entrances enable easy, direct access to each suite.

Additional luxuries will include coffee machines, fresh flowers, AV chocolates, summer/winter bathrobes, fresh fruit baskets and luxury toiletries.

Booking are now being taken for the suites which will be launched on December 1st 2015 and they can be booked by calling 015394 43206 or online via http://www.lakesapplegarth.co.uk/
