History of the hotel
Jacob and Johanna embarked on extensive renovations of the inside of the house, advised by Simpson and Brown architects in Edinburgh. They also started an ambitious programme to improve the grounds, including replanting woodlands, building woodland walks, and restoring the splendour of the historic walled garden.
The result of their work is the luxurious hotel you see today, combining the charm of the house's Victorian heritage with the comfort and convenience of the 21st century.
Note: To honour the history of the House and its inhabitants, the current tartan in the hall and staircase is a mixture of the Murray and the Sutherland tartans. It was created for us by McKay in Durham. The check is taken from the Murray tartan, the red line made a little softer and the blues and greens are derived from the Sutherland tartan.
Dogs stay free and they are welcomed with a nice doggy biscuit! The grounds are wonderful for a morning dog walk with plenty of rabbits to chase and the hotel will happily provide a water bowl on request. They also offer dogs their own special menu, blankets and cushions, dog box; doggie walks map plus a vet on call and a grooming service who can come to tender for all your treasured ones needs! Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in any public areas.
