Downie Park House is quite simply a unique and wonderful house that mixes antique and modern to ensure a most comfortable stay.
When you see Downie Park from the lovely tree lined drive, it will catch your breath. It is, quite simply, a beautiful building in a stunning location. Part of the Cortachy and Airlie Estates, the house sits at the foot of the Angus Glens surrounded by hills, woodland and farmland and looks down to the River South Esk well known for its salmon. There are endless beautiful walks throughout the estate and on the hills and moors above.
Downie is an imposing house from the huge stone flagged and pillared hall with its 3 story hanging staircase, to the beautifully light and spacious oval rooms that are a feature. All the rooms are full of light and space with gorgeous views of garden or countryside.
The house has been newly refurbished in an eclectic and unusual style and offers a deliciously quirky presentation with fine fabrics, antiques mixing with more industrial and modern pieces. The oval bedroom has absolutely gorgeous hand painted walls that will entrance. Fine white cotton bed linen is ready to slip in to at the end of a day. There is one en suite bedroom on the lower ground floor which would work well for less mobile guests.
Most bathrooms have the original deep clawfoot baths – deep and long - they are a comforting way to relax at the end of a day. There are two drawing rooms with open fires – one with TV so an easy break out space is there for those who want a quiet moment. A high ceilinged formal dining room complete with open fire is ready to host some marvellous evenings. As with so many old houses, the kitchen is in the lower ground floor and thoughtfully, there is plenty of dining space here too with a kitchen table.
This is a hidden and beautiful spot, perfect for weddings and celebrations or for fishing parties. Fine golf courses such as Carnoustie or Rosemount are close by and the nearby Angus coast has many unspoilt beaches. Edinburgh is within a couple of hours and nearby cities like Perth or Dundee with the stunning V&A museum, are easy days out.
An unusual and unforgettable house with a great history that you will always remember.
