Luxury mansion in the heart of Scotland
Built in 1734, the beautiful Kirtle Water Mansion sits in the heart of the Scottish Lowlands. Its breathtaking gardens span over 11 acres. This place is perfect for a restful getaway, a corporate retreat or a romantic wedding.
You feel as if you’re walking back in time as you stare at the Georgian character of the house. Inside the drawing room speaks of the Regency era with it’s bow windows, and splendour with its beautiful plasterwork ceiling of fans, garlands and scroll work.
Perfect for parties
After experiencing the house from outside, you pass into the black and white marble entrance hall with its ornate oak panelling, marble columns and roaring wood-burner. Then through the portrait gallery with three formal rooms including the dining room and the ballroom, complete with its own private bar full of Scottish whiskies and every other drink you need.
The dining room can seat 100 with an intimate and romantic atmosphere. A lovely Italian black marble mirror which is over 100 years old adds to the occasion.
After a long day, you can relax in the sitting room enjoy a nice tea or coffee or watch TV. There’s a Play Station 4, a Wii and many of the latest games for both children and teenagers alike.
Sleep in comfort
There are 14 bedrooms; every one is stunning, individually designed and different. The two bridal suites with sweeping views over the lawns and formal gardens make it the perfect romantic getaway. All bedroom swere recently renovated by the same interior design company which designs the Goring Hotel bedrooms where the Duchess of Cambridge stayed the night before her wedding.
On the ground floor is a universal room which is fully accessible so the person staying there won’t have to go up or down stairs, and it has its own wet room.
