Regency Mansion

This house embodies the elegance of a bygone era blended with the best of today’s living. It leaves visitors inspired and enthused, relaxed and invigorated. The Regency Mansion is large, with twelve bedrooms in the main house (and two bedrooms available separately), but it is never overwhelming.

All but one of the bedrooms has an en-suite or private bathroom. The bedrooms with their luxury fabrics, designer rugs and high ceilings, give a sense of tranquillity and space. The house also has four elegant reception rooms – a large drawing room with the original marble fireplace, a similarly spacious dining room with Regency wallpaper and cream drapes; a study to while away the hours with a good book and the homely “Red Room” which is a favourite for an after-dinner tipple.

The reception rooms, with their delicate cornicing, their original fireplaces and their enormous windows, are both elegant and comfortable. The gorgeously designed bedrooms all lead onto an atrium bathed in light from a glass cupola above, and the grounds are the ideal place for true relaxation. Guests will find that this outstanding property allows you to live like a Laird.

There is also a large home cinema with comfy sofas and a table tennis room for the more energetic. For the more sedentary we have a selection of board games & chess and a television for those who may fancy watching something other than the cinema. The large modern kitchen has a solid oak table where guests often congregate. It is well equipped, with two hobs, two sinks, three ovens, two dishwashers and plenty more appliances for your daily needs.

Regency Mansion sleeps thirty people in the main house, but on the lower ground floor there are another two triple bedrooms plus a kitchen/sitting room, that allow up to thirty people to sleep in the house (at additional cost, please ask our concierge team for prices at the time of making your booking). The house is set within five acres of lawns and woodland.

The house has grounds of five acres. Within that, there's something for everyone. In front of the house is a large, elegant lawn, ideal for sunbathing. In early summer the lawn is surrounded on all sides by rhododendrons of pink and purple. To the side of the house is a hidden-away; enclosed garden - perfect for total peace and quiet. If the weather's particularly good, there's an elegant small patio for taking meals outside. It is not unusual to spot deer, badgers, buzzards and foxes.

For those with more energy, there is a lovely walk through the woods, leading down through the wild flowers to a bubbling brook. If you'd like to remain nearer the house, there's croquet, and a giant chess set for playing outside. Children seem to love the outside space. There is a large lawn outside the house, ideal for running about, but there are also specific areas for children - a small adventure circuit and swings hanging from the trees - one for toddlers and a tyre for larger, braver children!

Regency Mansion is only ever rented on an exclusive basis, so guests are given total privacy.

At Oliver’s Travels we pride ourselves on going that little bit further for our guests. From private chefs to babysitters we can help you arrange those little extras that make it a truly memorable holiday. Simply fill in the concierge request form or contact the Oliver’s Concierge Team who will be happy to help. We can typically help you arrange any of the following:

- Maid service/extra cleaning
- Private chef/cook/catering
- Welcome hamper/pre-stocked fridge
- Local day-trips or tours
- Airport pick-up/drop-off
- Babysitting/childcare services

Please note that all extras are subject to availability and must be requested in advance of the holiday (prices on request). Due to some rural/remote locations, not all services will be available at all properties. However, we will always do our best to fulfil your requests!

The house makes a splendid backdrop for a very personal wedding and around half of the property rentals are specifically for celebrating the big day. If the weather is good, the gardens are a perfect place to start the reception, with drinks served on the lawn. Even if the weather is acting up, the glass cupola in the reception hallway and the size of the rooms and windows throughout the house ensure that the big day is one of grandeur, light and brightness.

The glamour from the Regency age adds a touch of sophistication to the proceedings, while the many rooms mean that wedding parties can have separate areas for dinner, dancing and intimate chats. The dining room and Red Room, which interconnect, together seat 80 for dinner. Should the couple wish to cater for more, it is possible to erect a marquee in the grounds.

The property holds a permanent wedding licence and there are several ideal locations within the house to tie the knot.

Couples may wish to accommodate many guests and family for one or several evenings. This is no problem as the house can sleep up to 24 in 10 bedrooms. For particularly large parties, two extra triple en-suite bedrooms plus their own kitchen and sitting room are available at extra cost. If these are taken, the total capacity rises to 30 people.

For food, the owners can recommend a superb chef for smaller parties, or alternatively for larger gatherings, several caterers.

We are sure that the individuality, beauty and calm of the house, coupled with complete privacy for the party, will make it the ideal choice for any big day. 


The house has played host to countless parties over the last 200 years. The house lends itself as equally well to large formal gatherings as to small relaxed house parties.

The dining room can be set out in a formal manner with one long table, or for larger gatherings, the Red Room can also be used (it interconnects with the dining room) to seat up to 80 people. This leaves two further reception rooms allowing even more guests to drink, chat and maybe dance without getting in one another's way.

The large reception room is ideally suited for dancing. At a recent party of over 100 guests were Scottish reeling well into the night. There is even a hire shop for kilts up the road for those wishing to get fully into the swing.
