This exceptional private castle, built in 1770 to a design by renowned Scottish architect Robert Adam, provides the perfect venue for exclusive house parties, memorable private celebrations and corporate events
The five impressive reception rooms are beautifully proportioned and offer a suitably elegant, grand backdrop for special occasions whilst retaining the charm and welcoming feel of a private home.
Guests arrive into the Stair Hall and are greeted by the fabulous, double, stone staircase sweeping gracefully up to the Minstrel’s Gallery, an impressive 100 foot long vaulted space dotted with Persian rugs and antiques that connects the reception rooms on the first floor whilst equally serving as a fine reception area of its own.
At the heart of the interconnecting reception rooms is the elegant drawing room with vast log fire with superb Piranesi chimneypiece, Bluthner Grand Piano, sumptuous sofas and double height windows offering fabulous views over parkland to the Cheviot hills beyond.
Adjoining the drawing room is the impressive dining room with sparkling chandelier, large windows and ornate plaster cornice. Up to 80 guests can be seated in the dining room for a banquet, or smaller numbers for a more intimate dinner or lunch. In colder months a fire can be lit in the magnificent marble fireplace, adding an atmospheric glow to the space.GROUND FLOOR
