Situated on the outskirts of Inverurie within a private estate, this spectacular castle is a wonderful location for a large family and friends gathering, amid luxurious interiors and tranquil woodland.
Offering a holiday plucked straight from a fairy tale, this remarkable 12th-century castle has been renovated to create a home of simply the highest standard. The secluded location of the home ensures privacy and makes it an excellent spot for a get-together with friends or long-awaited family reunion. A host of spacious bedrooms provide more than enough space for 14 guests to stay in luxury.
Each room boasts a true sense of grandeur and it’s clear to see that the home has been lovingly furnished by a stylish eye. The colour scheme and overall theme varies from room to room, with bedrooms presenting calmer pastel colours, and the lounge and dining room adorned in daring bright shades. The home strikes a wonderful balance between modern and traditional, favouring contemporary bathrooms and kitchen units, yet utilising more traditional furniture in the lounge and bedrooms.
The shining star of the home is the opulent drawing room, an excellent space to gather and unwind together come the evening. The strong wallpaper works wonderfully alongside tall windows, and the room is filled with a bright and optimistic light, the perfect place to catch up or plan your day ahead. Evening entertainment can be found in the library, where you can curl up in front of a warming wood burner and enjoy TV as a family. Younger guests may prefer to break off and play table tennis in the games room. Whilst cooking for 14 may feel like a challenge, the chef of your family will no doubt relish the opportunity to use the classic double Aga, storing local produce in the pantry and making use of the generously spacious room. The dining room is ideal for entertaining, decorated in a noble shade of green and adorned with classic artwork and mounted deer horns, filled to the brim with the rugged character of the Scottish countryside.
Head onto the first floor via the stunning hallway, beautifully decorated with interesting artworks. Out of eight bedrooms, four are luxurious king-size rooms with contemporary en-suites, the perfect touch of luxury for the parents of the group. Antique furniture is used in an exceptionally stylish way and original elements like old feature fireplaces add to the overall charm. One of the bedrooms is a lemon-coloured triple room which is ideally suited to young cousins or siblings wanting to enjoy a sleepover.
To the rear of the property, you’ll find a vast manicured lawn, ideal for children to while away a sunny afternoon with ball games. It’s an enclosed garden, adding to the privacy and safety of this outdoor space. Plan a summer BBQ and dine alfresco at the garden furniture.
Please note there is a refundable £800 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
