It was my dog’s birthday last Friday and I’m afraid to say it came and went without pomp and ceremony despite the pleadings of my young children who wished to decorate him in ribbons and bows and all things sparkly.
In the summer we had a client who booked one of our large self catering castles in Scotland and invited family and friends up to celebrate his son’s 21st birthday. Great birthday present Dad! Anyway, there was much talk over how the group could be entertained during this auspicious self catering holiday in Perthshire. Of course there would be the birthday dinner in the evening – but what about during the day itself.
Hiring a butler, housekeeper or cook can be a welcome break for those who would also like to feel they are on ‘holiday’ from those boring but important chores! Particularly with the large holiday houses sleeping 15+ where the practicalities of who does what at mealtimes can fall on the same shoulders. If you are thinking of booking a self catering property in Scotland and think you might need some extra help during your stay, let us know and we’ll be happy to advise.
Because we are in the holiday lettings industry, we assume everyone understands the term self catering but of course, there may be many of you out there – particularly if you don’t reside in the UK – who don’t.
