Fiona and I own a couple of lovely hideaways - one in one of Scotland's golfing centres and another in East Kent. We have had many family golfing holidays in both, and holidays with friends. We've often had three generations using each of the houses harmoniously. In Scotland we have a number of different spaces to slip away to - despite the open plan feel of the downstairs. Golfers playing in the Scottish open have used the house in the past for themselves and their wider support group. It's been very convenient with the four separate bedrooms for groups of travelling golfers playing the large number of East Lothian courses. The boys have studied for exams and we've had numerous work conference calls using the high speed internet. In East Kent the separate parts of the old farm buildings can be rented together as separate units for extended parties.
