Congratulations to Derek Lyall, the first winner of the Photo Of The Day Caption Competition that we’ve been running over on our facebook page! The prize was a tasty meal for two at Ord House Family Lounge Bar, which serves delicious home cooked food from Wednesday to Sunday.
This month we have a Glamping Experience up for grabs! The winner will enjoy a weekend stay in one of our Wishbone Lodges. Ideal for a family holiday or a couples retreat, they sleep up to four people and are set in their own personal space so you have plenty of room to stretch out. They Wishbone Lodges have some great little extras like double glazing, lights and plugs, your very own veranda and are heated by a low wattage electric heater.
