Springkell, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, DG11 3AL
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!
