Special 2020 Introductory Price £499 for 5 people sharing on a self-catering basis. RRP £625. Geek RetreatHere at Arden Holiday Cottages we love to game, especially table top board gaming . Maybe that comes from when we were young and we sat around as a family playing the old fashioned board games like Monopoly, Cluedo, Buckaroo. When we grew up we realised there was a lot more to board gaming and we thought this is amazing lets do more !  So we visited as many board game cafes as we could and went to events across the country meeting a really friendly bunch of people and got stuck in quite a few Escape Rooms. Then we got to thinking…  wouldn’t it be great to be able to go on holiday and do all these things all year round? We looked around and found nowhere to do this except one off events.  So we decided to create a place for people to come and play games whatever their speciality. ​As we love escape rooms we decided to create our own bespoke Escape Room using local folk lore and historical events as the theme. We carried the Scottish theme on with a Murder Mystery where you get to take part as a character. To top it off we have a comprehensive range of games from party games for groups such as Scrawl and Bucket of Doom, to more complicated games like Pandemic, Fall of Rome, Isle of Cats , Dominion, that we are happy to demo to guests to take away the slog of learning new game rules.Geek Retreat Itinerary 3 night break (Friday - Sunday / Mid-Week Break)​To find out more please vsit our website .
