Good Hotel Guide Review
Buffered by trees and fields, Jane and Colin Kilgour’s secluded Georgian mansion has the feel of a sedate world, yet is just ten minutes’ drive from the city centre. The house has been carefully preserved (there are records of every resident since it was built in 1746). In the gardens, a listed sundial and well-kept lawns are protected from resident sheep by a ha-ha. Inside, sash windows, high ceilings and polished wooden floors set the tone. Board games and DVDs are available in the sitting room. Harris tweed curtains and throws complement the bedrooms’ original features (in one a cast iron bath); broad views scan the horizon from each. Local ingredients and garden-fresh eggs for traditional breakfasts.
lounge, dining room, 9-acre garden, in-room TV (Freeview), free Wi-Fi.
