DESCRIPTION

Springkell is a beautiful Palladian Mansion built from 1734 with the wings added in 1818. This Georgian House has 14 bedrooms sleeping 31 and another 7 ‘Z’ beds and 4 cots can be added into the rooms. If your group is larger than this we have 4 bedrooms in our cottages. We specialise in Five Star Events – we only ever get Five Star Reviews as we make each celebration perfect. Our chef cooks delicious food to your timings. We have menus but we like to cook what you want to eat! We have a full time chef and the food is delicious and varied. Our wines are from Tanners who I believe to be the best, certainly one of the best, wine merchants in Great Britain.

3 bedrooms are ensuite including one which is perfect for anyone slightly older or infirm as it’s on the ground floor with a wetroom. There are five additional bathrooms which the bedrooms share. All bedrooms have lovely large white towelling dressing gowns and waffle slippers.

Our dining rooms can seat 100 although we laid it up for 4 once and it worked well. Springkell has it’s own pool table on free play, table tennis table, bar football, large TVs, Sky, DVD players, PS3, PS4, Driving Wheel, Wii, and all the best games. The layout of the house is ideal for parties, gatherings and weddings. The dining room is 100 sq metres or in old money 30 foot by 24 foot and so is the ball room. The black and white marble entrance hall, just like Versailles, is 135 sq metres. We have two sitting rooms, one large and one small.

The gardens are 11 acres and great for the Mini Highland Games we can arrange for you. We have also arranged Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery and Quad Biking on site as well as guests using our own ‘Marines’ Adventure Course. The record is one minute and 10 seconds! We’ve had Weddings here at Springkell, 30th Birthday Parties, Raves, 80th Birthday Parties, Wedding Anniversaries, 21sts, 18ths and Stag Parties. We’re flexible and we can arrange what you want and ensure it all goes brilliantly. The bedrooms have top of the range Hypnos Beds and are super comfortable. Our guests tell us this!

Our daughter and now son-in-law were married at Springkell last week. We have nothing other than praise for the experience we have had over the last two years. From the very moment the couple decided Springkell was the place for them until we left on the Sunday lunch time James and his team have been professional,helpful,supportive,encouraging and attentive. James aim is to make you feel at home in this stunning and beautiful house and grounds and we did. One guest comment related to just how relaxed the wedding was. Fiona, ( I don't think she sleeps), replies almost instantaneously to questions and nothing appeared to be a trouble to her- even sending a photo by instant return. Terence, provided excellent food that, was as good on the day as it had been at the tasting. Special diets were no problem. Jill and Mandy, provided a stunning dining room and more importantly kept me sane. Sandra and Lee, looked after us all on the day of the wedding and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you too, goes to Steve,the waiting and bar staff, the brides personal attendant and those getting all the rooms ready,if we've left anyone out we apologise. Attention to detail was second to none. We forgot candles for out side lanterns we had taken and before we could arrange them the Springkell team had noticed and they very quietly provided them without being asked. This is just one example. Thank you James and Rachael

Such a fantastic venue for a wedding; staff could not be more helpful and considerate. Everything ran perfectly at our wedding in April 2016 and we cannot recommend Springkell enough. We were recently there again for our first anniversary and will definitely be back! We absolutely love this place ❤️

We went to a wedding at Springkell this weekend, aside from the gorgeous setting, brilliant (sound-proof) house and amazing food, I was especially impressed with the staff and management. Our little son was ill and Springkell went above and beyond to help - they provided a babysitter last minute to sit with him / outside whilst he was sleeping and they were really flexible and relaxed about me going in and out of the kitchen to get milk and food at any time! I really appreciated their friendly and relaxed approach. Thank you!

We had a brilliant night at Springkell. We had Room 12. I believe we had Honeymoon Suite. The room was colossal, I mean we really had to walk about 20 feet to get to the ensuite!! The food was amazing and a great price. The breakfast was brilliant...The grounds were beautiful and vast. Lastly the staff were excellent, very welcoming..

I was a guest at a weekend wedding here and it's the best venue/wedding I've been too!! It was a perfect weekend and the staff/venue helped make it so. Highly recommend!!

We got married in June 2016 and from the day we booked,it was such a good experience. Fiona and James were so helpful and nothing was ever a problem to them which made organising a wedding a lot less stressful. We had booked the house from the Friday to Sunday which was lovely as we felt it made the celebrations extra long especially with family travelling from Scotland,England and Northern Ireland. Everyone that came to our wedding was so impressed with the house and how well they were treated our brother and sister in law even decided to stay an extra night. The whole experience couldn't have been better!

Springkell is a real gem, the venue is stunning the rooms are gorgeous but the staff here are magnificent and a real credit. We have just had the most fantastic wedding day, every detail was perfect and nothing was too much trouble. Springkell is massive but somehow it feels homely, words can't praise you guys enough. Our day was everything we could have wished for and so much more Thank you x

Both my husband and I got married in Springkell earlier this year. We hired the venue for two nights which gave our guests time to settle in and feel completely at home. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and venue itself. James was very easy to work with throughout the booking and planning process. We also found his PA Fiona to be extremely helpful and responsive - nothing was too much effort. The wedding was everything that we had ever hoped for and thanks to all of the staff who made sure that everything ran smoothly on the day. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone. Springkell will always have a special place in our hearts!

A fantastic venue, excellent staff team and incredible facilities. A very big mix of styles and fashions but all wrapped in a way that works. They have made good use of the many rooms available. If you're getting married or looking for a space for a small business conference without many distractions; this is where I'd head. We were here for my cousin James' wedding to Caroline and everyone has had a great time. They do say though that it's the people that make it.

Great place to stay! Laid back, friendly, food beautiful in presentation and taste, beautifully tranquil, lots on offer to keep our 10 year old son entertained. I really loved the big open fire they put on in the main living area every evening. Felt I was in a period drama without the costumes �

Stayed midweek for work. Stunning place superb food fantastic staff. Couple of minor points wifi code in the room would be good as there was no phone to contact reception to find out the code. And a tv in the room is a must for a midweek traveller.

I was a bridesmaid to my best friend who got married here in September 2016 and it was such a great venue for a wedding. My friend and her husband were the first to have a marquee up for the day, it was just amazing!! The guy couldn't do more for us. Everyone loved their day. Would recommend to anyone looking for a venue for their special day

I had the pleasure of staying at Springkell during a wedding in August. The venue was stunning, the accommodations were beautiful, and the entire experience was delightful. What I found particularly amazing was continued effort put in by James and his staff. He is truly what makes this property stand out. When the bar tender was a no show for the wedding, James took it upon himself to create the cocktails and see to the wedding guests himself. This is just one example (for there are many) of how he went above and beyond to ensure the wedding was a success. It was touching to see the landlord invested in the success of the wedding. A beautiful venue with a personal touch.

My husband and I got married here at Springkell on the 20 August 2016. What an amazing day from start to finish! On booking Springkell we met James and Fiona, both who could not do enough to help us! They explained they could do as little or as much as we needed - they would even arrange flowers, photographer etc if we so wished. Fiona (PA to James) was just great on the upcoming months and weeks to the wedding. Any little query I had she would answer in a timely and helpful manner. The wedding day was just perfect from start to finish. We would not have changed a thing! James was visible and helped the wedding to run smoothly. All the housemaids, housekeepers and bar staff were tremendous too! Many thanks to all at Springkell, you did a fab job! � Mr & Mrs Wylie (Graeme & Chloe)

Just spent the weekend here for the Belfield wedding. What a stunning venue. The staff here are just fantastic, nothing is ever too much trouble. And they always have time to make conversation, yet leave you to it and to treat the place like it were your own home, making you feel incredibly welcome. The rooms are beautiful as are the grounds. I cannot recommend this venue enough. Thank you James and all the springkell team for making the weekend so memorable.

My wife and I got married at Springkell on 16/7/16 and the whole weekend was fantastic! Food from start to finish was 5* and the service, cleanliness and general presentation of staff and surroundings can not be rated highly enough! From the booking of our day 2.5 years ago right up until the day after the wedding James and his PA Fiona were fabulous and can not be rated highly enough. We can not wait to go back and stay as B&B guests in the near future. Springkell is a must visit for anyone who is organising a wedding, we immediately fell in love with the place and it will always hold a very special place in our hearts. James you made our weekend so special, and for that on behalf of both of us and all our guests. Thank you once again. 5* all round.

This place was a dream come true! I felt like royalty! The bedrooms were beautifully furnished. I loved using the grand staircase. The food was excellent, walking the footpaths and seeing the sheep in the meadows, seeing the old church ruins and tombstone from the 1700's. What more could you ask for?

To James & Rachel We want to send a huge thank you for making our 25th Wedding Anniversary Celebration such a wonderful, memorable occasion. Your hospitality was outstanding, and your beautiful home, Springkell, which you so generously share, was the most amazing venue we could have hoped for. The whole team of staff looked after us our family and our friends beautifully. We particularly would like to mention Fiona, Sarah, Fleur, Nathan and the others that we hadn’t learned their names, who worked so hard. But also Jill and Jane did an amazing job behind the scenes, but gave such care and attention to detail. The food was superb and everybody is still talking about it and so a massive thankyou to Peter for being a brilliant chef. But to you James, we especially thank you. Your enthusiasm and passion for Springkell shines through when you make an occasion such as ours a huge success, like you did. We loved the Highland games, and the walk around your beautiful estate on the Sunday, we also appreciated your lovely humour and attention you gave us throughout the weekend, all these things are what really made it. However we will never forget how stunning the Ceremony room looked for our dinner, it really did have the wow factor and we thank you for allowing us to use this fantastic room. So all in all we had the best weekend ever and will remember it and talk about it for a long time to come. We thank you, your lovely family and all the staff for such a wonderful time.

Well what can I say about our visit with you that has not been already said !!! Without exception the Family has been loud in its praise of yourself your outstanding staff and of course of Springkell itself. We could not have found a better spot as a headquarters from which each day we travelled out to see a fair amount of Scotland and England. The residence of course is unique and its setting is wonderful. The rooms spacious and well decorated. The favourite was the Dining Room with the bar not too far behind !! The latter served as a great gathering point for those looking to simply sit and chat or perhaps to engage in the odd game of cribbage. The outdoor activities on the grounds were fun and the one day trip to play Golf certainly was a highlight for those who participated. The 31 of us all thank you and your staff for making it the memorable get together that it was.

Thank you so much for the wonderful time at your magnificent home. We could not be more pleased with how our key client corporate day turned out, not just because of the glorious weather. Your website does not do your palatial home justice as it way surpassed what we were expecting. The rooms were beautiful and your ceilings were out of this world. I couldn’t stop looking up at them. I can’t thank you enough for how welcoming you made us all feel. The service from you and all your staff could not have been better. I did notice that there was a lot of left over drinks, so apologies for that. I have paid £500 into your account this morning to compensate you for this. Could you also use this money to reward your staff for their 6-star service. I would welcome the opportunity to bring just my team down for a day of quad biking and shooting when you are not busy. I believe that Bryan from my PR firm will definitely be arranging a similar event at your place in the near future. Thanks again and all the best.

Thanks to James, Ann and the team for a fabulous 'white' wedding! Dave and Sandra

2 years ago

Dave and I were married at Springkell on 29 January 2015 - what a fabulous venue for a 'white wedding' - not sure how James managed to order the snow for us too!! It was brilliant! >From the day we first went to see Springkell, James and his team could not have been more helpful - nothing was a problem! We opted for canapés, choose our own menu and evening buffet - the food was amazing! All our guests were very complimentary about both the venue and the food - in fact 'best wedding ever' was quoted on many occasions! The venue is formal, yet so homely - from the actual wedding ceremony, to the wedding reception and the evening disco - it was all so relaxed! The guests were able to mingle around the mansion house and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful! We also had two Shih Tzu dogs as part of the wedding party - this was not a problem and in fact staff and guests just fell in love with them! I would certainly recommend Springkell as a wedding venue - it was just such an amazing day! Thanks to James, Fiona, Ann and all the staff - you were wonderful!

We have just had our wedding at Springkell on October 11th, and would like to extend our thanks to all of the team at the venue. Thanks go to James and Rachel for all of their help over the past year, and letting us have our special day in their special home. The meal was amazing, as was breakfast and our incredible BBQ (I wasn't hungry, but I wolfed it down it was so good!) and the rooms were just beautiful, we could have stayed in our suite for months! The staff were so accommodating and there was nothing I would change. We will stay in touch, as we hope to visit again-I cannot recommend these beautiful grounds and lovely house enough.

Beautiful building ,grounds and public rooms.However ,needs refinement in terms of cleanliness,furnishings,and decor.This has the propensity to be an amazing wedding venue,but they need to " get their act together".
