  • Attended wedding reception here and it was absolutely amazing. Was lucky enough to view where the ceremony would take place as we made the cake. The rooms upstairs are beautiful, as is the outside including artwork in the garden areas. The cafĂ© was transformed for the evening reception and was a nice size with a good dance floor that proved popular. Would recommend as a visit for the architecture, but would REALLY recommend it as a wedding venue!
  • Was here for a wedding ceremony and reception. Beautiful and interesting architecture and surrounding grounds, with good function spaces and friendly staff. They were extremely accommodating to my veggie girlfriend who they made feel like the guest of honour as supposed to an after thought. The rooms became a bit hot with all the people inside which stopped me choosing 5 stars, but overall a great experience I'd recommend!
  • Lovely house, beautiful architecture, very secluded. Has a small cafe too which serves hot drinks and food. It's also a perfect wedding venue, I got married here March 2016 and the venue, staff and food were faultless.
  • My husband and I visited 5 years ago. I was so moved by the total experience, that I have continued to tell all who will listen, that it is a special place not to be missed. It is also a beautiful story. I loved it.
  • I'm a Celebrant for Humanist Society Scotland and regularly conduct weddings here. When I conducted my Nephew's wedding I got to stay on to enjoy the whole day.....and the food , the atmosphere and the professionalism of the staff made the whole day (and party afterwards) a real pleasure :-)
