About Springkell

Springkell is a Scottish country house, with a beautiful Georgian facade. It’s perfect for special celebrations, parties, weddings, and corporate use.

The main house sleeps 28, in 14 bedrooms, which include a very special Master Bedroom and two family bedrooms. Three of the rooms are en-suite, the others each have a private bathroom.

Should you need extra space for guests, there are two self-contained self-catering cottages close to the house. Chauffeur’s Cottage sleeps four, and so does Kennel Cottage (which is a bungalow, should any of your guests wish to avoid stairs).

The main house and cottages can sleep up to 36 guests in total.

The reception rooms at Springkell include a drawing room, ballroom, morning room and two sitting rooms (the largest of which can seat 26), overlooking the beautiful gardens.

The gardens at Springkell are mostly laid to lawn, rolling off into the Scottish landscape. A wide sun terrace leads from French Windows towards the Round Garden, which can work as an extra room – perfect for speeches, games and ceremonies. There’s a BBQ area, and lots of open space for children (and grown-ups!) to play.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“As I’m always greatly enthused by an invitation to dance (especially at a ceilidh), the ballroom stands out as one of Springkell’s greatest assets. The floor is perfectly sprung, the acoustics just right – tune up the fiddles!”

About the Location

Springkell is about fifteen minutes’ drive from Gretna Green, and about 2 miles from the M 74. The nearest town is Lockerbie, and there are plenty of bed-and-breakfast’s in the area for additional guests. The nearest West Coast main-line train station is Lockerbie, about seven miles from the house.

Things To Do

There is plenty of activities that can be arranged from the house, such as clay pigeon shooting, mountain biking, golf, walking, kayaking and adventure climbing.

Weddings

Springkell really does know how to host a good wedding. The house has a civil ceremony license for both inside the house and out. Up to 80 guests can be seated for a wedding breakfast inside the house, and up to 440 guests can be accommodated on the lawn in a marquee.

What an amazing place to spend the night. Spacious and grand room. Great host and staff team. Owner was always here to help make your stay great. Will definitely be back. Thank you

We had a wonderful one night stay in Kennel Cottage at Sprinkell. The cottage was clean and tidy with everything we needed. Staff were fantastic and made us feel really at home. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious and there was a great choice. We will hopefully be back for longer next time.
