Our party of 6 has just returned from our 3rd visit to Stobo. We stayed overnight in the very comfortable Castle Lodge, a short walk from the main house. Between us, we enjoyed playing tennis, walks in the peace & tranquility of the extensive grounds, various exercise classes, treatments, pool & spa, & hot tubs outside in the snow !... More
